BGB by beware is a gameboy/color emulator/debugger. It has a [[no$gmb]]-like debugger, but lacks some of no$gmb's disadvantages. It has a [[Test_ROMs|high accuracy]], comparable to [[Gambatte]]. Considering it has both an excellent accuracy and a powerful deugger, and is freeware, it is probably the best choice for developers. BGB also has features that make it a good choice for playing and enjoying games or demos.
