    I do play with emulators on my android phone, but is there emulators that are actually recomended for the Minix Neo U1?

    I saw somewhere here something about a "happy chick" or something emulator. It seems to round everything in one place - from NES to DC. Have anyone here ever tried it? Is it on the playstore or do i have to find the APK?

    How does that work? I need to put each emylayor on it or does it comes with a "starter package"? Any emulator goes or are the specific ones?

    Also... the official website dosen have a andtoid version. Its on the play store?

    I didn't tried yet on Minix U1.
    I used it on a Raspberry pi 2, but it's the same way.

    You need to find roms, and games iso of course. Not difficult to find.

    There's a lot of tuto on the web.

    You can also install any single emultaor on android (Amiga, Nes, SuperNES, Dosbox, Mame, etc ..)
    All of them are available on the store.

    I use happychick regularly with a Xiaomi Gamepad in a 4K tv hdmi 2.0 (60 fps) and it runs smoothly :D

    NOTE: happychick cannot be found in the play store, so you have to search it by yourself in google.

    I got to the website and was almost installing the APK in an old, empty tablet. But the kind of access the app asked for kinda scared me...

    (then i went to install Retroarch and the access it asked were pretty mild, so i went with it)

    (but Retroarch is so difficult i wasnt able to make ANYTHING work. God i hate Retroarch....)

    But how does Happy Chick work? Its everything ready? You just install it and every emulator is already there? I saw "Dreamcast" and even Wii in its images... does it work easy like that?

    Does any of the versions in the website work under android on the Minix boxes?
