KiGB

KiGB

KiGB is an accurate and free portable emulator for Gameboy, Gameboy Color and Super Gameboy.

It is fully compatible with all GB/GBC games, and features several components not usually packaged with basic emulators, including a graphics effects module which allows visual effects like blur to be enabled.

KiGB is the only emulator that emulates the Game Link Cable, this lets you play most 2-player games over a TCP/IP network.
