How to Play Gameboy Games on iPhone Without Jailbreak.
While there are many emulators for Android, they are not easy to play on the iPhone. Sure, you can jailbreak your iPhone and then get it in an unconventional way, but no one has time for that. In this guide, I will show you how to play Gameboy Games on iPhone without jailbreak. Let’s start.
I don’t know, it’s something about this 8-bit game style and music that brings back good memories. Gameplaycolor is a web console that lets you emulate a console right from your iPhone’s web browser. If you’re interested in emulating GameBoy Advance games on Android, try it here.
Set up GameBoy Emulator on iPhone
Go to the GamePlayColor website in your Safari browser and click the Play button. After that, just follow the onscreen instructions and create a webpage shortcut on your iPhone. Click the Share button at the bottom of your browser.
The website does not work in other browsers and also has some issues with the iOS 13 beta.
Select “Add to Home Screen” from the “Share” sheet, rename the shortcut, and click the “Add” button in the upper right corner.
Perhaps now is the right time to upload the Gameboy ROM to your Google Drive account. Once you’ve downloaded the ROM, proceed to the next step. If you want to emulate Dreamcast ROM on Android, try this.
Now tap on the GamePlay icon on the home screen we created earlier, it should ask you to sign in and enter your passcode. Click the Login button and log into the account that stores your Gameboy ROMs.
Yes, you will need to load your own GBA ROMs or load ROMs from CoolROM. After downloading your ROMs, upload them to your Google Drive account, you just logged in in the previous step.
You will be redirected to the Gameplaycolor website with an on-screen access code. Press and hold the text box to copy the key and paste it into the app on the home screen. It would look confusing, but trust me, it’s easy. Just go to your home screen and paste the key in the Passcode field. Click “Continue” to activate.
All of your GameBoy cartridges will appear and you can click on them to play. You’ll see the classic D-Pad and four buttons for navigating and controlling characters while playing. Enjoy!
During my testing, the emulator worked fine, but there were some problems here and there. For example, I couldn’t get the games to sound at first, but you can fix this by turning the slider to Ring and then clicking Unmute after restarting the app. If you feel that games are running a little slow, you can fix it by increasing the speed in the settings. You can go up to 3x.
So let’s go. Now you can play your favorite Gameboy games on your iPhone without jailbreaking. Alternatively, you can log into webNES to play the classic NES game on your iOS devices without jailbreaking.
