Libretro is a simple but powerful development interface that allows for the
easy creation of emulators, games and multimedia applications that can plug
straight into any libretro-compatible frontend. This development interface is
open to others so that they can run these pluggable emulator and game cores
also in their own programs or devices.

Gearboy is an open source, multi-platform, Nintendo Game Boy (DMG) /
Game Boy Color (CGB) emulator written in C++.

* Highly accurate CPU emulation, passes cpu_instrs.gb from blargg's tests.
