This is a good emulator, but poorly optimized for Android TV devices. Setting ColEm up for external joysticks is something of a Herculean task, especially if the joystick in question is digital. You can't escape to the menu without thumbsticks, and the BACK+A combination doesn't seem to work either. What I'd like to see in this and other Android emulators is the ability to select your options BEFORE gameplay starts. It would prevent a lot of unnecessary grief and filled swear jars. ColEm in particular could use a much better interface for customizing your controller... some functions are reserved for certain buttons, which may or may not exist on an Android TV. Why can't I use my controller's start button to exit to the menu? The camera shutter is, uh, not really an option for me. Having said all that, I'll acknowledge that ColEm works, and works well. You can turn off interpolation for a crisper display than you ever would have gotten out of a real ColecoVision, and compatibility hasn't been an issue so far. I haven't tried any roller controller or steering wheel games, but everything else has been hunky-dory. Pricey, but probably worth it for fans.
Haven't tried it on my phone, really just want to play it
Very good, but minor annoyances I found that the Android version would not recognize .Zip files as the manual states. Only .rom are recognised. So I have to unzip all my files, then rename from .bin to .rom. After that, emulation is quite good with excellent sound, but for a few games the sound would disappear. I could get it back by adjusting the audio settings.
Perfect Coleco vision was on display with Donkey Kong hooked up to a TV I was 10 back in 1982 and thought it was so awesome after being able to play it at a Sears store in the mall in newmark Ontario I had to get it for Christmas Santa brought it and I was so happy played it a lot cabbage patch kids was funny and hero and Tarzan cosmic adventure ' frogger zaxon buck rogers I am 44 now and this emulator helps bring back memories, thanks so much, oh and did I mention minnor 2049er what a cool game,
