Are there programs to play Android games in Windows (8)?

Postby Naniyue » Thu Jun 18, 2015 6:42 pm

There are many Android based games I'd like to play, but I don't own an Android device. I know I can use a virtual machine/DOS Box for old DOS and Windows 3.1/95/98 stuff, but are there programs that allow Android games to be played in Windows (8)?

Got it to work. Runs slowly when first loading up a game, but once it starts, the speed's pretty good.

I noticed that, too. I used it to play PvZ2 and it lags like hell in the menu but, in the actual game, it's smooth as butter.

Just like windows 95, you need a virtual machine for android.
And they may be slower since it'll require some arm translation to x86 opcode, but since smartphones kinda sux with their hardware, if you get a proper machine you may run things fine (or make use of that x86 android version, but idk how compatible it's with games)
