    The Only Cart for Your Travels

    Posted by Kevin Rettino on Oct 30th 2021

    This is actually only the second flashcart I've ever owned, the first being the Everdrive 64. I thought everything about it was flawless, and that's the same deal here.

    Like the ED64, compatibility was pretty much 100%. I tried dozens of GBA games and none of them ran any different from using my real carts. I also tried some other games but never ran into anything that would suggest any issues, very impressed. That's just for Gameboy Advance; for GB/C games, it's not as cut and dry. The X5 uses emulation, since the cartridge can't press the physical button to switch to Gameboy Color mode. I ran into one incompatible game, and there is some input delay, but otherwise this is more than acceptable for portable use, though for home use I recommend something else. I also wasn't able to get some GBA video roms to work, the 64MB ones, but that's not a loss or strike in my book.

    Overall it does the one thing I asked it to with flying colors: Play Gameboy Advance games. It is unfortunate to have to use emulation for Gameboy/ Color games, but being able to play those on a DS makes up for it in my mind. With prices rising for the better games on the system, this device pays for itself. Even if you only have interest in five games it pays for itself, on top of being able to experience new ones. Strongly recommended.

    Basically flawless

    Posted by Mirza on Sep 10th 2021

    Enough has been said about this cart, the only thing missing perhaps is for KrIKzz to provide a manual with his products and that would be basically it. For anyone wanting to save their actual carts from wear and tear, and get something that doesn't deplete their battery like some of the other flash carts tested out there, this is the cart for you. A special mention is deserved for the color combinations you can order on this site, I got this frosted blue to go with the dark blue faceplate on a Game Boy Micro and looks awesome. SD cards fit nice and snug (you can take it out without taking out the cart from the system as well). Games fire up instantly with no hitch. The only possible thing missing functionally is being able to set your real time clock (you can through the game Boktai thankfully), or a Reset-to-Menu hotkey combination of some sort. But otherwise this thing will handle anything you throw at it. Also nice how it sits flush with GBA/GBA SP/GB Micro.

    Really nothing much left to say other than this is the cream of the crop for a reason. Maybe there's something out there with some other functionality that does better than this cart. But I doubt they can do it with power efficiency this cart is capable of.

    Reliving my childhood!

    Posted by Shawn on May 19th 2021

    This thing is excellent! I have not found any games that it won't play (including some romhacks). No issues with saving, either. Being able to play Gameboy Color / Gameboy games is a huge plus too. Also love the color.

    If you're looking for a GBA flashcart, this is the one to get, no question
