What is a ROM?
A ROM (read-only memory) is basically a kind of non-volatile memory that cannot be modified after it is manufactured on a device. So, a ROM is useful for storing software that doesn’t get changed in the system life cycle and is primarily used for video games.
When you copy the contents from a ROM chip to a storage medium like a hard disk or compact disk, it is known as ROM emulation. This process is popular among gamers to share the games from old video game cartridges for whom consoles aren’t being manufactured anymore. So, you can play these games on any device with the help of an emulator.
What Game emulator to use to run this ROM?
If you want to play Pokemon Crystal ROM on your mobile phone or PC, then you need to download and install a Gameboy Color (GBC) emulator on your device. A few good GBC emulators for Windows PC are BGB 1.5.3, BasicBoy, TGB Dual, etc. For Mac, you can use GBC emulators KiGB, Open Emu, and so on.
