Prizoop is a Game Boy and Game Boy Color emulator that is compatible with most popular titles. To install, just copy prizoop.g3a to the root of your Prizm, and any rom files you would like to play in the emulator the root as well (as .gb or .gbc files, with simple 8 character names).
You can also compress files using the included Windows tool as .gbz and save a bit of space in exchange for slightly slower emulation.
An embedded FAQ viewer is available that maintains your position in a text FAQ for each game. FAQ's are very readable thanks to calctype and sub-pixel text rendering. Simply include the FAQ as a ASCII encoded text file with the same name as your rom file but with a .txt extension.
Includes full sound support (using a 2.5 mm to 3.5 mm adaptor), and can run almost all games at full speed.

Works very well. I have had no problems getting it to run or downloading more games onto it.
I do however recommend you download the Prizoop version from github as it has been updated more recently and has fixed some of the bugs.

Great emulator, but occasionally instead of loading into certain games say pokemon gold, it just repeats the intro title.
This emulator works a charm! But mind that when you try to use some ROMs, it may give you an error along the line of "file not found" and cause your calculator to keep initialising. If this happens to you, remove any special characters, including commas, apostrophes, basically make sure that it is just letters and nothing else. Also, try to shorten the name. Legend of Zelda titles are quite long and the calculator may throw up an error. If this happens just shorten it to something you will remember. I don't know what the limit is, and tbh, a bit too lazy to check, but just shorten the name, and it'll fix itself.
A must-have for the Prizm. Playing Pokemon Crystal is just as fun as it was back in the early 2000's. And yes, i have tried it with sound and it is a bit choppy, but it does work! The emulator interface is very simple to understand. overall 10/10
