The top 4 reasons to play Android games on your PC

Yossi Fishler is COO of Andy OS, which enables people to play Android games on their PCs.

When it comes to gaming, there are plenty of different options.

Console games, mobile games, PC games, VR games, etc… the list continues on and on.

So why choose one gaming platform over the other?

Each platform has its own advantages and disadvantages and mobile gaming is not without its flaws.

So while the worldwide market boasts a value of $37 billion, the fact remains that mobile phones limit the gaming experience.

So here's where Android emulators like Andy OS come into play.

Allowing gamers to access mobile games on their computers, these emulators offer a great number of benefits.

1. Focus on the visual aspects

The visuals of mobile have come a very long way. Remember the black and white pixelation of snake back in the day?

Well those days are gone and we aren't looking back.

The future of mobile game graphics is being blazed anew every day and it is clear that there are exciting changes ahead. In fact, Google just announced an Android update will support open source API Vulkan graphics, further enhancing the mobile gaming experience.

But what's the point of advanced graphics if you're stuck playing on your small mobile screen?

Let's face it, bigger is better. And thanks to the Android emulation software out there, gamers can experience the best visual experience when playing their favorite mobile games.

Since they are running off your computer's battery, Android emulators offer you the ability to game for longer.

And, developers are following suit, creating more visually dynamic and intricate graphics as well. It would be a shame to miss out on the full visual experience just because you have a small phone screen.

2. Game longer

Nothing sucks more than the low battery warning on your phone as you are mid-game.

Sure, there are certain games that are meant to be battery saving but at the end of the day we all know that mobile batteries just don't last as long as you'd like your gaming experience to.

Since they are running off of your computer's battery, Android emulators offer you the ability to game for a longer time period.

Whether you're using a laptop or a desktop computer, you can continue to play for as long as you want.

Even better, you won't have to worry about going over your mobile data limit, as the emulator connects to the same internet source that your computer runs on. Extended playing time and a less restricted internet connection equals more gaming for users.

3. A more tactile experience

Aside from the fact that small screens limit your visual experience, mobile screens aren't necessarily the most comfortable.

Sure, you can physically move your phone to respond to the activity in the game itself, but mobile only offers the touch screen as an option for movement within the game.

Emulators are beneficial in the sense that they help users to choose their method of how to play.

Prefer a mouse and keyboard? Want to use your phone as a joystick? Is your phone not so responsive to touch?

Not to worry, emulators offer you this flexibility to choose the best method that works for you.

4. Accessibility

The trouble with mobile games is that they're limited to your mobile device and don't offer a desktop or web-based version.

This can be frustrating. In fact, there are many threads on Reddit simply chronicling the lengths that dedicated users go to in order to continue playing the mobile game.

Android emulators feed users' gaming obsession by giving the users multiple platforms, regardless of the limitations of the games themselves.

Having mobile-only games accessible on PCs means that users can choose how and when they want to play. Everyone enjoys having options, so take advantage of gaming options too.

There are many reasons for serious gamers to utilize emulator software.

But don't take my word for it, try it yourself today and let us know what you love most about the experience.
