Just tried it out loving it, any plans for it to be available on the Google Play store for Android TV's? I have all of your other apps on my TV as well they all run and work great! And yes I bought them all lol

Pretty good, but I would like an option to crop the borders. Also, there's some kind of bug or error that makes the on screen keyboard not work for colecovision games, as well as some games thinking you're holding down the fire buttons once you exit and re-enter it.

I would give this 5 stars but the developer choose not to support his customers. I want to use colovison roms and the built In keyboard doesn't work for colovison roms. I have no problem with an external joystick but using the built in keyboard for msx doesnt support colovison roms. Msx1 and msx2 roms have no issue with the keyboard. Please email me and I change my review. So if your buying this for colovison roms for using it on a mobile it does not work. You need to map an external joystick but the keyboard works great for msx1 and msx2 roms. Such a pity the mx keyboard doesn't support colovison roms and the description says it does.
