You can download, run and play Android Games, as well as use Applications on your computer. I am not talking about something like how we now use WhatsApp on computer browsers. No, far from it. I am talking about actually downloading Android Applications and Games as you would on on your phone.
A good number of people love some mobile games so much they wish they were available on computers. Some even give up on some games on their phones because the screen is just too small for the game.
