Softonic review

Free and advanced gaming emulator for personal computers

VBA Link is an advanced gaming emulator which can support up to four common Game Boy simulators in the event that they are powered by a GBA ROM. It is also able to connect as many as four different computers with a LAN connection. In essence, this package is an alternative to the well-known GBA emulator VisualBoy Advance. However, the main difference is that users will not have to pay to download this software application.

Main Functions and Applications

VBA Link can be downloaded and installed in the form of a ZIP file. It may then be extracted to the appropriate folder. There are many options within the setup menu, so users can adjust its settings accordingly. These can likewise be modified at any time by clicking upon the appropriate menu. Transfer logs are offered so that all emulation history can be reviewed when required. It is likewise possible to save the games themselves within dedicated folders.

Other Options

Both single-player and multiplayer options are available with VBA Link. Speed teaks can help to address any processing issues while both PC and Linux systems are supported. The newer version has addressed some connectivity issues and it now supports the use of wireless LAN adapters.


  • There are no fees associated with this open-source software package
  • Transfer speeds will not be compromised in multiplayer mode


  • Some modes such as UART and Joy Bus are not supported by VBA Link
