Some games are perfect on smartphone, and it’s hard to imagine them on any other platform – games like Tilt to Live, which relies on your smartphone’s gyroscope, or Fruit Ninja, which is all about touchscreen swipes.
But here’s the thing: there are countless other smartphone games that would work infinitely better with physical controls, and only do without them due to the constraints of the platform.
Thank god, then, for NoxPlayer, the current best-in-class emulator for all things Android. Put simply, NoxPlayer lets you power-up your favourite Android games by playing them on your PC, using a keyboard and mouse or a control pad.
Imagine if you will, playing a multiplayer shooter such as PUBG Mobile, Fortnite Mobile, or Call of Duty Mobile, running around in the same maps as your smartphone gaming peers but with the massive advantage of a traditional PC setup, with no lag to hold you back.
Or imagine booting up your Android copy of Monument Valley or Clash Royale in the comfort of your PC gaming chair. In the case of MMORPGs, you’ll even get the distinct advantage of being able to run multiple instances.
Better emulate than never
Meanwhile MineCraft Earth, Game of Thrones: Beyond the Wall, Diablo Immortal, and countless other games are bound for Android in the coming months, all of them playable on NoxPlayer.
A 64 bit version of the software is currently in development, as well as an Android 9 update. The coders behind NoxPlayer are clearly committed to R&D, meaning your library will always be current. It’s the only emulator to support OpenGL+, too.
Privacy can sometimes be a concern with Android emulators, since they require you to enter your Google password. Fortunately, NoxPlayer is totally GDPR compliant and avowedly committed to its users’ privacy, so you can use it with confidence. It will support 4 new languages this month as well, namely Polish, Arabic, Turkish, and Italian.
