As a young, enthusiastic gamer, we were all very fond of a cool handheld video game console, popularly known as ‘Gameboy Color Emulator. This article is a reason for all retro game lovers to be nostalgic.
Unfortunately, since the hardware for ‘Gameboy’ was obsolete and Apple has a policy to restrict the Emulator applications on App Stores, the Super Nintendo, Atari game lovers had to just keep them as a memory and nothing else. However, when there is a will, there is a way!
Ever since the starting days of jailbreaking the iOS devices, the motive was to install retro games and applications (through emulators) that have been long forgotten.
Seeing such popularity of these retro games and applications, the developers of such emulators decided to make some changes and use Apple signed certificates to install these emulators without jailbreak the device.
