About this game

ColEm is a ColecoVision emulator. It runs Coleco games on your Android phone or tablet. Play Coleco games with Bluetooth gamepads, USB joysticks, hardware buttons or virtual gamepad. Save game play at any time and restart once you get killed. Record ColecoVision music to MIDI files and use them as ringtones. Play with friends over WiFi or Internet, using NetPlay.

* Optimized for Android devices using assembler and 3D hardware, and running Coleco games at the fastest possible speed.
* Full screen portrait or landscape mode emulation, with options for simulating TV scanlines and fuzzy TV display.
* Emulates joystick using touch screen, Bluetooth gamepads, Xperia gaming buttons, Moga gamepad, iCade joystick, physical keyboard, or accelerometer.

This is a free, limited version of ColEm that may show ads and nag you to buy the full version. For the latest, full, ad-free version, with better joystick, network play, and the ability to share your saved game play with other users, get ColEm Deluxe.

ColEm package itself does not contain any games. You should place your own game files onto the SD card before running ColEm.

Please, do not run any software you do not own with ColEm. The author cannot and will not tell you where to find free Coleco games.

Trying to play Turbo with no luck. Using xbox controller bluetoothed or the on screen keys nothing I cannot steer at all. I can only accelerate with the on screen red button. Developers need to look into expansion pack 2 for more information. Edit developer has a point extra star for them paying attention.

I think the reason is that your phone and controller do not have the same steering wheel or pedals that this game came with. Naturally, you can't steer in it. I am going to look into adding SuperAction spinners to ColEm though: the Windows version already has them.

The games run pretty well, but the sound quality is... questionable. EDIT: For clarification, the sound effects in a game can be broken or out-of-pitch. It's quite noticeable in games like Omega Race, Frogger, Super Cross Fire, and Pac-Man Collection.
