Controllers is described as 'Consoles allows you to use console controllers to play almost any game on Mac, even games that don't have built-in support for controllers' and is an app in the Gaming Software category. There are five alternatives to Controllers for Mac and Windows. The best alternative is JoyToKey, which is free. Other great apps like Controllers are Xpadder (Paid), USB Overdrive (Freemium), Joystick Mapper (Paid) and GamePad Companion (Paid).
The USB Overdrive is a device driver for macOS that handles any USB or Bluetooth mouse, keyboard, trackball, joystick, gamepad or gaming device from any manufacturer and lets you configure it either globally or on a per-application, per-device basis.
Joystick Mapper is an application that allows you to configure your joysticks or gamepads to simulate keyboard keys/mouse movement/mouse click/mouse scroll, so you can control any app or game using them, even the ones without built-in support.
