Delta: the iOS emulator to play Game Boy and Super Nintendo

A wonderful application to relive magical moments of your childhood!


Delta is a new retro emulator for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch created by Riley Testut. It is currently in beta, but already allows players to enjoy titles of Game Boy, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64 and other platforms.

According to the developer, who launched his second beta version yesterday, this iOS emulator still contains a series of bugs and errors that he tries to correct little by little.

For all those who are not familiar with the subject, Delta is the natural successor to the popular GBA4iOS emulator, which is no longer available and had compatibility with Game Boy, Game Boy Advance and Game Boy Color games.

Delta will come to iOS during this year 2017

The interest of iPhone and iPad users for this project is very high. The first beta version received more than 10,000 applications when there were only 80 available for testers and 40 for the press.

As reported by iDB, the Delta gameplay on iOS is very fluid and runs at a normal speed.

As for its user interface, it is quite simple but intuitive and easy to explore . On the other hand, all functionalities seem to work correctly.

  • Import of .zip files.
  • Share games via 3D Touch.


  • IPhone Plus models correctly display 3 games per line.
