The first step to playing Game Boy Advance games on your PC is to choose an emulator. An emulator is a software that allows you to run games designed for another platform on your current device. Several different Game Boy Advance emulators are available, but we recommend mGBA. mGBA is open source, constantly updated, and available for Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Finding Game Boy Advance Games

Now that you have an emulator, you must find some games to play! Unfortunately, we can’t provide links to any copyrighted material here due to copyright reasons. However, a simple Google search should help you find what you’re looking for. Just make sure you trust the site you download from, as there are many fake or malicious sites posing as game download sites.

Installing The GBA Emulator

Once you’ve downloaded mGBA, the next step is to install it. This is simply a matter of running the installer and following the prompts on Windows. On macOS, you will need to drag the mGBA.app file into your Applications folder. And on Linux, you can install mGBA from your distribution’s package manager or compile it from the source.

Setting Up mGBA Controllers

Now that mGBA is installed, it’s time to set up your controllers. mGBA supports almost any controller, from keyboards and mice to gamepads and joysticks. You can even use a Wii Remote if you have one handy! If you’re using a gamepad, you’ll need to connect it to your PC before launching mGBA. Once connected, open the mGBA Controller Settings dialog from the File menu.

Launching Game Boy Advance Games In mGBA

Now that everything is set up, you’re finally ready to play some games! To launch a fun, open the mGBA window and click on the “Open” button. Please navigate to the location of your game file and select it. mGBA will then launch the game, and you can start playing!
