This method will not only help you to play the pokemon fire red game but you can play almost all the other GBA games using this method. Let us have a look:
Step 1: Download an emulator
There are various kinds of emulators that are available to run GBA ROM. The best one out of a slew of such emulators is My Boy. This emulator app is readily available for download on the Google play store that too free of cost.
You are always free to check out other emulators that are available on the play store but this one certainly fits the bill when it comes to the quality of gameplay and applying cheats. Therefore, this one is the best in our opinion.
Step 2: Finding the Rom of your game
The one and only thing that you are required to have in order to enjoy your favourite game boy advance game is the ROM of the game. Don’t worry you don’t have to pay a single penny to get it.
All you have to do is a simple Google search with the query “Pokémon fire red GBA ROM download” and it will yield you various sites from where you can get the privilege of downloading this game as well as other games that are compatible with game boy advance consoles.
The ROM files are usually compressed in ZIP format and that’s why it is recommended that you have an Unzipping tool installed in your android phone.
Once you have successfully fulfilled these two requirements i.e. ROM and an unzipping tool, simply unzip the file and place it in your internal storage or an SD card’s storage. You are also free to create a specific folder for keeping all your games so that they don’t look messed up.
Step 3: Firing up the ROM
Once the preparations are complete, all you have to do is load the game and play it. And that’s actually a cakewalk. When you open the My Boy GBA in your android phone, you will be presented with a screen that asks you to load the game from your storage.
Simply, select the location of the game by navigating your way through it and selecting it. Once you have successfully loaded the game it should start automatically.
Best Position to play the game
If you play the game while holding the device vertically, you will get the same old feel of using a classic game boy advance console but if you have a device with a small screen size then this would be a haptic task for you to play the game vertically.
Therefore, if you play in a horizontal position you can enjoy the game in the best resolution, and also you will never feel that controls are hard to operate.
