I've been looking around and found a couple of cool homebrew games:

2004Mbit
Bust-a-move

Having trouble finding some others though. Anybody know any good ones?

My Music

Nearly all of my songs are made with Fruity Loops, except for one where I used Reason. I recommend looking at my ambient stuff, and staying away from old songs, which are pretty crappy.

Check out http://gbaemu.dcemu.co.uk for a listing of many of the emulators available for the GBA.  Here's my list as well:

Calculator Advance - calculator
CoolSweeper - minesweeper
DanTE Advance - text editor using button combos for letters, pretty fast once you get the hang of it
GBA JPEG Viewer - convert tons of images into compressed JPEGs for usage on GBA.  I recommend changing the options to "Resize to fit 432x288 and keep aspect ratio" before adding any images, then use the button combo to zoom in when viewing.
Game Boy Book Reader - best text conversion software for the GBA, tons of options available for building books
Goomba Color - GBC emulation, download Alpha 6 and then grab the updated goomba.gba file from http://www.dwedit.org/dwedit_board/viewtopic.php?pid=1740
GBA GSM Player - play music on your GBA after converting first to WAVE and then GSM format.  Convert to WAVE and put in folder, then run go.bat
Herg's Solitaire and Herg's Yahtzee - Herg's Solitaire has tons of variations on the game
Luminesweeper - Lumines clone and minesweeper game
Multiboot Menu - if you have any *.mb files, use this to wrap them into a *.gba file for launching
Music Player Advance - another audio player, but I prefer GSM Player
Paint Master - similar to Mario Paint for the SNES
PocketNES - NES emulator with tons of options, download the PocketNES Menu Maker program as well in order to build compilations
Scrabble Dictionary - just a simple spellchecker
SNES Advance - one of the SNES emulators for the GBA
Snezziboy - the other SNES emulator for the GBA
GBA WinS - windowing system, has a few games, download from http://koti.welho.com/plahtin6/index.html#winsdistro - press B to access the menu and A to select.  Also try the older versions that I've mirrored at http://danthemanms.googlepages.com/GBAwinS.zip (one is the same as the one from koti.welho.com)

EDIT:  forgot to mention Meteo, for converting videos into *.gba files.  Download from http://www.gbaflashguide.com/main.php?p=utilities (also grab Boot-O-Matic Advance while you're there, as it's useful for adding soft-reset capability to most commercial games, and some homebrew games as well)

AmplituDS v.3 - Amazing rhythm game
Wordup - Kind of like Bookworm Deluxe
TetattDS - Tetris Attack (better of with Panel de Pon)
Nitro Tracker - Neat sequencer/tracker (for making music)
Beup Live - MSN on your DS
DS2Key - DS acts as a keyboard (use it as a joypad for games)

There's a lot more, but those are some of my favorites.
