Quick: There’s Another GBA Emulator On The iTunes App Store! [UPDATE: And It's Gone!]


As highlighted by our friends over at iDownloadBlog, yet another ‘Game Boy Advanced’ emulator has snuck its way into Apple’s App Store – this week.

The app is called Earthquake 7 by Askpi Systems – and poses to be an app for finding the latest information regarding nearby earthquakes. However, type in the phrase: “gba activate 638” into the app’s search bar … and you’ll soon discover the real purpose behind the app.

This action will pull up the app’s hidden “Games” menu, which will show all of the GBA ROMs, that the app presumes that you already have installed on your iOS device.

Hurry! – It’s yours for $1.99.


UPDATE: It’s Gone

Sadly, you’re too late. Apple (or the developer) just “pulled” the app.
