It works easily once you get the hang of it on chromebook. The 8bitdo arcade stick works on this emulator but the first time I tried it didn't so I uninstalled and re-installed the emulator and now it works fine. It gives me issues like it moves to the left on its own or it won't go up. So I'm uninstalling and re-installing to see if that helps. It didn't help, so I'm trying again, although while mapping the buttons it does work. It doesn't want to work to move left or up.

A fantastic ColecoVision emulator that works perfectly on the Nvidia Shield TV. The emulator is really easy to use with many new features and fixes being implemented all the time. The developer of the emulator is really amazing and listens to your suggestions and works really hard to resolve any little bugs that you might find. Do not be afraid to contact him if you have any good ideas or find any little bugs. The project is still very active and things can only get better. A highly recommended purchase for any Nvidia Shield TV or Android TV user.

Excellent emulator for Colecovision. Only issue is that the games will not launch using ResetCollection Android frontend but does work with Launchbox. When launched from ResetCollection I get a message from emulator that says "Turn game off before inserting cartridge or expansion module". I have informed author of ResetCollection about this too. If this could be fixed it would be great.
