The original GBA also has a GB motherboard in it, to play the older games. On your PC, both CPUs are emulated to compensate for this.

The iPhone version only emulates the actual GBA cpu, not the one for GB.

To play GB games, you need to put them in a GBA wrapper that basically acts as its own emulator-inside-of-an-emulator. These are hit and miss, I have not gotten any of my converted GB/GBC games to work, however others have reported success on Zodttd's forum.

Yeah, it couldn't hurt. Just make a post asking how to play GB on the emulator and one of the regulars will pop up with an answer. You'll have to do some digging on the net for the wrappers (goomba if i recall) they're pretty old now.

Good question, I didn't consider that when I had tried.

Let me know how it goes, I'd really like to get all my GB Picross games on my iPhone :)
