Recently, we told you about Delta, an upcoming all-in-one emulator from the creator of GBA4iOS.
While this is still in development and just news around the web, there is another similar app that brings multiple gaming systems to your iPhone and iPad.
This emulator is called Happy Chick, in fact, it was originally named Xiaojigame and has been around for awhile now. We posted a tutorial on it a few months ago. Unfortunately, the method was quite complicated as it requires users to download another app from the App Store and verify their device.
Good thing we have Cydia Impactor to sideload these emulators onto our iOS device. With that being said, we will show you how to sideload Happy Chick on your iOS 10 without jailbreak.
How to Install Happy Chick emulator on iOS 10
- First, download the .iPA from this page (Thanks Redmond Pie)
- Click here to download Cydia Impactor
- Connect your iPhone or iPad to a computer
- Drag and drop the Happy Chick .ipa to Cydia Impactor
- Enter your Apple credentials
Wait a few seconds for the utility to start signing and installing the app to your device. Before you can start exploring all the features in Happy Chick, there is one last thing we need to do: trusting the app.
- Go to the Settings app
- General > Profile & Device Management
- Trust Happy Chick emulator (you should see your email as the developer ID).
The good thing about this emulator is that it has support for multiple platforms such as Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, PSP, SNES, and much more.
Additionally, Happy Chick also has a built-in store where you can download ROMs files and other advanced features. Oh and don’t forget to sideload the app every seven days or else it will crash upon launching once the certificate expires.
