    Excellent Cartridge, though only a nominal improvement over the original X5

    Posted by on Oct 10th 2021

    If you already have the X5, this is just a smaller version of it; the only other notable change is that it also doesn't have that bright red LED that flashes every time your game saves. (Very interesting in games that auto-save)

    But if you don't have the X5, this game cartridge is a great way to play (nearly) all of the GBA library. I particularly love using it to play fan translations on original hardware. Krikzz hardware support is also excellent, especially with the new-ish integration with GBA emulators like Goomba (for GameBoy and GameBoy Color). Overall, very highly recommended for fans of the GameBoy Advance.

    Love mine! Revitalized my childhood GBA and this was the perfect addition - super convenient and fun to have tons of games on one cart. If you're more casual/not a collector, this is a must have. If you don't mind not having a 100% accurate experience due to no RTC, then this is the one to get

    The GB/GBC emulation through Goomba isn't 100% perfect (still excellent though!) but this is to be expected - still a super nice bonus. This + a GBA (with a backlit screen) is more than enough for anyone interested in gameboys, but not diehard enough for the most authentic experience. highly recommended!

    Bought two of these awhile back for two customers I had built two aluminum GBAs out of parts bought from boxy pixel, it really completed the product! My customers were thrilled to get these GBAs with their favorite Pokémon games on one cartridge! Can also play gameboy, gameboy color, NES, SMS, and game gear! Very happy with this cart! Def a must buy

    Fantastic way to breathe new life into your GBA!

    Posted by Nick on Aug 5th 2021

    Like the rest of Krikzz's flashcart offerings, the Everdrive-GBA is a brilliant piece of engineering. The X5 Mini handles everything I've tried to throw at it, with very few exceptions. It works wonderfully in both my DS Lite and Game Boy Player. It also handles original GB and GBC games no problem once you've installed the required emulators (emulators are required due to the physical requirements of the GBA and physical GBA carts). If you're thinking about dusting off your old GBA and are looking for a flashcart, this is the one!

    Everdrive GBA X5 Mini

    This flash cart works great and is extremely easy to use. I'm sometimes frustrated when supposedly simple items like this are actually more complicated to use than advertised, but this is the real deal. There are few steps to follow but are all laid out online and easy to complete. The built-in menus are simple and speedy. Easy to set up the emulators needed to play GBA and GBC games. Emulating NES and other consoles doesn't produce the most accurate results but gets the job done.

    Overall well worth the purchase to pair with a custom/modded GBA.

    It just works!

    Posted by Michael Frank on Apr 8th 2021

    This works amazingly in both the GBA SP and the Gamecube's Game Boy Player. The games load instantly and the menu is simple and to the point. Awesome!

    handy little thing

    Posted by michael on Dec 5th 2020

    I find that is product is a rather good way to keep a library of roms as a back up and seeing as i purchase a lot of GBA games from retro stores i know there will come a time where the OG carts no longer work and thi will be the only way to play GBA games eventually
