This utility was created for Windows PC users who wish to play their favorite Android games directly from their computers. The application might come in handy if you run out of battery on your smartphone and wish to continue playing on your desktop PC.

Nox App Player is very simple to install and configure according to your needs as you will be guided every step of the way. The program will also provide you with multiple tips which might prove to be of good use if you're new with this type of applications.

The main window of the utility looks a lot like your Android smartphone or tablet screen, with all of the built-in tools listed on the right side of the interface. After you enter your Google account credentials (they're necessary if you want to install apps from the Play Store tool) you can launch the Play Store utility, and find the game you wish to download and install using the built-in search tool.

Each game comes with its own controls instructions which replace the smartphone or tablet tapping gameplay methods. You can record your gameplay progress, take snapshots, toggle fullscreen mode, adjust sound volume, and so much more.

My only problem with this app is that it takes a while to load.

Still, Nox App Player proves to be a reliable solution for testing or playing Android games on your Windows PC. It's nicely-designed, provides you with multiple helpful features, and is free.
