Play Android Games on PC with BlueStacks

BlueStacks is a hands-down Android emulator, which provides users a series of functions like the capability to download games and allowing cloud connection. Although this is a free emulator for Android developers to test their Android applications, we can make full use of it just for the sake of fun.

  • Head to BlueStacks.com to download this app player and install it.
  • Launch this app on your PC and you will be prompted to make App Store available and to offer your Google details for the first time.

Comparison:

It’s not difficult to find that ApowerMirror is a perfect solution for users to play Android games on PC. AirMore, equipped with the Reflector, also allows users to play games on your Windows PC or Mac. By comparison, BlueStacks and GenyMotion are more aimed at Android developers, therefore it is far more complicated to operate for many casual users. Although the performance and experience that the real hardware provides will always be better than these emulators, the above solutions on how to play Android games on PC still give us a possibility to experience Android games on a bigger screen.

          • This isn't absolutely correct. I checked in the Google Play Store to get the AirMore App and it shows incompatible with my android. My Android is running Lolipop 5.1.1 Version. So.. Do the math.
