The gaming evolution on smartphones has led to an interesting phenomenon where PC gamers actually want to play Android games on their computers, and they will do anything to be able to pull that off. Of course, that is what emulators are for and we are going to review a prime example of a mobile gaming emulator for PC - Tencent Gaming Buddy.
This free smartphone emulator for Windows is still in its beta phase, but it's already looking forward to take over the market. The emulator can only be used to play mobile games as that is its main purpose. After you download and install it, you can immediately visit the Game Center to check out its game collection.
Despite it being in the beta stage there are some impressive titles available, but we are still expecting to see a wider choice of games in the future. Notable entries include PUBG, Mobile Legends, Free Fire, Clash Royale, Arena of Valor, etc.
We have tested PUBG and Mobile Legends for purpose of this review, and it's safe to say that they run amazing, even on lower-end devices. You don't have to tweak anything as the controls are already created for you to enjoy. Of course, you can change certain buttons easily, but the games behave exactly how you want them to without changing anything.
For example, even though Mobile Legends is a mobile MOBA game, it feels almost like League of Legends! You can change various graphic settings and keyboard mapping using this program. You can even take screenshots and record your screen. It runs great without ads or any need of in-app purchases or pro-versions.
