    Does anybody know of any Sega Genesis emulators for the GBA? I have looked all over but haven't found anything.

    There is no Genesis emu for the GBA, only the DS.

    There was an emu way back but it was scrapped being impossible to pull off anything playable, I do not know if it ever saw a release (I do not have a copy anyhow) but I suggest you do not waste any time trying.

    Many noteable titles were remade or ported to the GBA though: phantasy star 1-3 (ok they missed 4 and 1 was a master system title), shining force titles (remake), Earthworm Jim 1+2, golden axe, ecco, sonic and that is off the top of my head at 5 in the morning.
    The only series that never really made an apperance was streets of rage (there was a homebrew port of 2 in progress but it never got far)

    that's true. actually, earthworm jim 1 and 2 was on the snes too, so i bet that was an easy port [​IMG] i wouldn't really care if genesis or snes are fully playable on DS. im enjoying the DS and GBA games well enough (but that's just me)

    I just thought I would ask, after all, there has been a legitimate attempt to emulate the snes on gba so i figured the less powerful genesis would be that much easier.

    They were bad ports on GBA, very glitchy.

    emulation is a strange thing

    if you ask me the more games from previous consoles you can get running the better!
