for the cost of this "software" you could just pick up the colecovision flashback unit, I mean some people rag on the colecovision flashback console, I enjoyed it for the sheer factor of getting mecha 8, the overlays, and 2 controllers I can use on my pc via my visiondapter usb dongle. anyways back to the point of this emulator and roms available on steam for $20 which is a bit over $35 Australian dollars.... WOW... I wondered who would buy this, and I scrolled down to the user comments... and yeah il let that do the talking, and look I have no problem with I.P holders making money off their games 30 years later or if some homebrewers included their game in the package to get a royalty, but its gotta be executed better than this..

I got it for free, bundled with a half-price Atari Vault and the Intellivision collection directly from AtGames's download site. They provided Steam keys for the Atari and ColecoVision stuff. So there's one person who paid, albeit not full price. 

 

It's not a good software package. It runs in a small low-res window and controller mapping isn't great. Maybe it will be updated. The emulation is more accurate than the ColecoVision Flashback, which runs slowly, but without the vintage controls it's not quite as much of a nostalgia trip. The nicest thing I can say about this package is that it's a reasonably friendly way to feel like you're buying a license to use the ROMs in a better emulator.
