App With Hidden Game Boy Advance Emulator Sneaks Into the App Store [Update: Removed]


If you want to play Game Boy Advance games on your iOS device without jailbreaking it, then act quickly.

The developer has managed to sneak the Game Boy Advance emulator in the App Store by hiding it inside an app for baby names called Awesome Baby Names.

After downloading the app Awesome Baby Names from the App Store, you can access the hidden Game Boy Advance Emulator with a series of taps. German based website, has provided instructions on how to enable the Game Boy Emulator below.


It goes without saying that you will still need to copy the ROMs to play the Game Boy Advance games on your iPhone.

So don’t waste any time, download Awesome Baby Names by Ian Jackson (direct iTunes link) before it is removed from the App Store. Let me know how it goes in the comments.

As a side note, I can’t understand why developers do this, as they will definitely get into trouble for doing something like this and risk their developer license from being revoked.


That was quick, Apple has removed the app from the App Store. via 9to5Mac
