Did you downloaded file with deb extension (file.deb) or extension is different? What is exact name of file you downloaded?

Hmm looks like this is a gameboy rom? You will need a gameboy emulator for that. I suggest VisualBoyAdvance.
install visualboyadvance like this:
Open Programs->Accessories->Terminal
then type in:

sudo apt-get install vbaexpress

then enter your password.

The program will be dowloaded and installed.

Afterwards, run vba and launch the game file from there. Hope this helped :KS

i have done that but when i go to enter my password it wont type anything?

The password is not displayed as stars, but it is still entered. Basically you just type it in and press enter

Oh, you cant unarchive it? Looks like your archive is corrupted. Try getting the game from somewhere else.

#1. Piracy is illegal and not a valid subject to discuss on the forums

#2. If you're saying that you cannot "execute" the zip file, then yes...it is the download. Zip files are not installation files - only archives.

From what you've told us, it appears that the ZIP archive you downloaded is corrupted. If you obtain a working copy, then you would extract the files from the archive to your machine and then run the install file from inside your GameBoy emulator.

If we're wrong, please tell us why so we can get the issue fixed

I donīt know if any of this will be helpful to you but anyway:

type in terminal

sudo apt-get install p7zip p7zip-full

after that right click on zip file and see if you can unzip it and then install.
