A more advanced user can even customize the screen size. It comes with the Play Store already installed or you can use APK files to install games and apps. The predefined keymapping of shooters can be a bit confusing, requiring you to change the crosshairs. MEmu ran several games without crashing, but there are no optimizations for specific games.

Our last option is not an emulator itself. TC Games is actually a tool that mirrors your mobile screen on your computer, also offering all the control options you find in a regular emulator. The practical effect is almost the same: you can play your Android games on PC with keyboard and mouse, or even record your games and stream. The downside, of course, is that the game still runs on your mobile, meaning you won't be able to play games that your mobile isn't capable of running.

  • Processor: Dual Core
  • Memory RAM: 1GB
  • Video Card: OpenGL 2.0
  • Storage: 70MB

Essential Tips

  • Enable virtualization on your PC. This will allow these emulators to use all available resources to run smoothly. Enter your BIOS by pressing F2 or DEL, look for the "Settings" menu and under "Virtualization" put "enabled".
  • Remember that an emulator is for emulation, that is, you will not have a new PC. There are Android games that may not be compatible with your system, even if you manage to install and run an emulator.
  • Mapping your keys, especially with shooting games, is essential. It will always be necessary to make slight adjustments.
