KIDD GBC Adds Touch Controls To Android Gameboy Emulator

TeraGadgets has released a new version of KIDD GBC which is showing a lot of progress.  KIDD GBC is a Nintendo GameBoy Color emulator for Android.  The UI has received a major overhaul and a new control method was added.  A list of new features includes:

  • Thumbnail images for save states
  • Add roms to list on start screen instead of needing to go through the load menu every time
  • Simple touch controls
  • Screen for save and load states redesigned
  • Non-fullscreen mode added back in
  • Doesn’t crash anymore when you get a call/different apps window pops up
  • Option to not display the frames per second

Our friend shinobiwan23 has uploaded another video which demonstrates how to load roms and configure control settings.  The touch controls need some improvement, but at least they are working.  It would be interesting to use motion controls for old school GameBoy games similar to the Wii.  Sound is still not available, but should come in a future release.  Help support the development of KIDD GBC by purchasing the application from the Android Market for only $2.00.

Speaking of updates, the developer of Doom for Android is also working on touch controls and now has sound working.  If you like Doom, help contribute to porting Quake by donating to our Bounty.
