New emulator lets you play Game Boy favourites in your iPhone web browser

Who wants to play Game Boy classic Mario Land on their iPhone? 

Of course you do. However, with Nintendo refusing to jump onboard with the mobile revolution, the only way to play old Mario games is via emulation software - most of which requires a jailbroken iPhone to run.

However, browser-based emulator Ben's Midi Gameboy allows you to play not only Mario Land, but authentic recreations of Tetris, Kirby's Dream Land, Bomberman, Bomb Jack, and a few other GameBoy games - all without downloading a thing.

What's more, as the emulator is hosted online, anyone with an iPhone and a working web browser can use it. All you need to do is open Safari, visit the site, and start reliving your childhood.

Of course, given that this site is hosting working versions of Nintendo software, we suspect it'll only be a matter of time before Japanese giant steps in and demands the website be taken down.

In the meantime, those wanting to give the emulator a go can head to Ben's Midi Gameboy and take it for a spin.

Or... Or, as a much better alternative, you can download GBA4iOS 2.0 that just came out. :
