A Gameboy emulator was the first emulator that I ran that proved to me that console unit emulation
on a computer was most definatly possible. And what better unit then the Gameboy unit!
It's hardware is not too difficult to comprehand and master, which is reflected in the
Gameboy emulators, for their emulation of the unit is at near perfection. Personally, if the
emulators for the gameboy unit did not run as well as the do, I would never of bothered with
Gameboy emulators, because of the grey-LCD output. Never the less, if your a Gameboy fan, new or
old, I recommend giving these gameboy emulators a shot.
With their accurate emulation and seemless operation, they're definatly worth bothering with!

- Again, the best port of one of Marat's emulator is for DOS, and VGB is no exception.
- The port was originally maintained by Marcel de Kogel, who dropped it.
- Now, a few minor additions were made by Hans de Goede.
- Reimplement the kernel portion
- Add CGB features
- Fix some sound problems
- Fix some SGB problems
- Fix some CPU bugs
- Fix ROM support problems
- Add joystick support

Why anyone would want to use a Windows port over a DOS port, I don't know. However, if this emulator interests you and you want to pay $35, goto the official homepage.
