A few bugs. . .
I live this app! The only problem is I find myself having to un- and then reinstall it every couple of days in order to load roms. The controls can be a little wonky. But these are a small price to pay for the greatness this app provides.
The save states rock. The roms are better than most paid for Android games. Shining in the Darkness on my phone? Excellent. Streets of Rage 2 on the train back from work? Awesome. Buttons are fidgety, mind, but what can you do? Wish navigation looked nicer...

I have no problem with the ads
Sure, ads may drain the battery faster. But the developer deserves money for his app. To the people who are complaining: Why can't you just charge your device more often? Overall, it's a good emulator.

The ads kill battery because the service starts up by doesn't shut off so hardware is being used even when its really not. However if you're rooted droidwall will minimize battery drain. It won't solve the issue cause its still trying to use network hardware but it prevents a connection. If devs wrote more efficient code for ads it wouldn't be an issue.

This is an excellent app! Long ago retired the old sega console but this app has brought it back. Play all the old classics and even those games you wanted but couldn't find. I have had no problems at all with this app. Would like to know if you can link two phones for 2 player action? Great app highly recommended!!!! Lovin it!!
BEST APP EVER! Works on my 'Acer: Iconia-B1'. Easy to use. Music is a Tone off. Despite being called a Mega Drive Emulator, it also plays Master System Games. Having this meant I Sold "Sega: Mega Drive Collection" (PS3). Unfortunately, this App has been replaced by a 'Dingoo: A330'.
This app is exactly what I was looking for. Every rom I've downloaded for it has worked perfectly and it's so easy to use, you don't even need to use a PC and put your phone into debugging mode etc (like it says in the description) just download a rom, go into your files, find GENPlusDroid folder and move your rom to the folder - no need to unzip or anything. I can't believe this app is free, I'd happily pay for it!

Runs almost perfectly, sounds are crisp and clear and mapping of buttons to Xperia Play gamepad makes it very addictive. The only problem is that play can lag if a text or FB message comes through (which could be me phone struggling to multitask)
I love this emulator! It's so easy to use, especially for people who don't know how to work emulators. Phantasy Star, Sword of Vermilion and Shining in the Darkness run so smoothly without glitches. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because I can't access the Game Genie option. Top quality!
pro tip: experiencing sound crackle, pops, & slowness? If ur phone is on "power saver" option (like my galaxy note 2 has), turn it OFF! I had this issue & fixed it by this figuring out this quick resolve! Enjoy! :)
Very good but...
Runs ROMs with ease and the ability to reconfigure the inputs is great but for my Nexus 7 the 'start' button has disappeared off screen and I cannot find it to move it back on screen! This is problematic when trying to start playing Sonic :( pls fix!
It's a great app. I love it for the fact that I can play some my favorite games. Only problem, is sound. It's hard to fully enjoy the game when the sound is a bit off. Other than that I am enjoying it with my Moga controller. Made gaming so much fun with this app. Love it for gameplay, just a little annoyed with the sound.
Seems excellent so far. Occasional crashes after amending certain settings but not a big issue by any means. Runs perfectly other than that on my Motorola RAZR i. Enjoying Shining Force :) The dev should be charging for this though, I feel guilty getting it for free!

Good but not great.
I can't complain too much, it's a good free emulator. My only issue is with the direction pad. Would be nice if it was floating like most galmeloft ones. It's in a set position and doesn't respond well to dragging your thumb. You have to lift and tap. This was on Zombies Ate My Neighbors.
Good on phone and tablet, still some issues
I use this both on my HTC One and Galaxy Tab 4 and it runs great. However, for the phone, sometimes it'll crash at startup . And on the tablet I have no way to get to the menu from the game, aside from closing the app :c

Depending on where you get your ROMS from depends on how well the games perform. The only thing I don't like is that the buttons are a little too small but then again my screen is not that big. On some games, the buttons are a little un-responsive. All the "Sonic the Hedgehog" games seem to work the best.
Despite efforts to adjust button placement and size, I still struggle sometimes to hit the button. I'll move my finger all over the thing with no response. Overall though, pretty awesome. Love playing those old Sega master system games like choplifter and Alex kidd in miracle world!
...here comes sonic! Thx for the memories. What I can't hardly believe, cause I couldn't remember the name, I found an old game, kid chameleon. Yup that's the game I spent hours on, it's tripping me out. It was so larger than life back then. So cool to see again, thanks again, simulator works perfectly.
Brilliant emulator. Great for single player. I tried to play with 2 moga controllers though and it wouldn't recognise a difference between them which led to both controllers being mapped as the same buttons. Any chance of a fix, cos I wanna get my streets of rage on.
Thanks for the ability to go to external storage! Now i can find my roms. Phantasy star IV runs smoothly. i couldnt figure out how to resize or remove buttons from the virtual pad but everything else is good. Could also have different fast forward speeds to use.
This app is awesome! Sega Master System is one of the only ways to get games with perfect simplicity. You can even fast foward beginning cutscenes and things. The only problem is that it.lags for Master System everu now and then, which is odd because.my GBA emulator never lags.
Best Genesis emulator I have seen for mobile
It's great, probably the best on the play store. Also the rewind is a great feature not available on most emulators I've used. Also no ads in gameplay :D . The buttons can be annoying to get used to however. Some sort of vibration feedback would be a nice feature. It's simple and it works well, even if It doesn't have some features.
The only issue I've had is sound SLIGHTLY out of tune, I'm on a Moto G. People who skip past the instructions at the start (first time you boot it) then complain are idiots, as are people wondering why you need a computer.
This is amazing!
Thank you so much for making this. My one and only complaint is the controls... They need to be fixed because touch controls need to be more flexible since there aren't any real buttons. I'm really glad that this was made though so I can play all my Sonic games as well as the hacks. :)
