Play Game Boy On Your Palm Pre With VisualBoyAdvance

If you're a Palm Pre owner who's been craving some old-school distraction, rejoice! You can now play Game Boy, Game Boy Colour, and Game Boy Advance games on your smartphone.

Game Boy Advance games, like Mario Kart Short Circuit, aren't quite running at full speed yet - about 60 per cent of normal speed with sound or 90 per cent without - but Game Boy and Game Boy Colour games work just fine, and, as they say, emulators can't be choosers.

The VisualBoyAdvance for WebOS project only started two weeks ago, so hopefully updates and improvements will be soon to follow. As shown in the video, the emulator can already switch between portrait and landscape and supports custom skinning.

Check out the project's page on Pre Central for information on how to install. [Pre Central via Engadget]
