Being an avid gamer myself, I have always relished the opportunity to not only be able to play most of my favorite games on the go but also play on a large screen. This is why I have many of myfavorite games installed on my smartphone as well as PC and ready to play irrespective of the device I am working with. Just like I have games like Call of Duty (COD ), Grand Theft Auto ( GTA ), Assassins Creed, Pro Evolution soccer, Rayman Legends among others installed on my PC, I also have the mobile versions of each game. Of course, all the games mentioned above do not let me continue my progress directly, it is still pretty fun to play the same title on which every system I want.
There are however some games I play that do not have PC versions. Some of these games include Subway Surf , Clash of Clans , Clash Royale , and many more. Though these games do not have official PC versions, there are still ways to play these mobile games on your PC. The main reason why this is possible and reasonable to do is that most of them allow you to create an account so that you can continue your progress on any mobile device. The way you can play these games is by cloning your computer or PC to look like an android device. These involve installing certain software that is capable of doing exactly that.

As stated earlier, Clash of clans is a game developed only for Smartphones and tablets. It is available on the Google Play Store for Android devices as well as the App Store for iOS devices. The PC version is not yet available and is not even going to be made any time soon. However, there is some computer software that makes your computer work like an android device so that you can use android apps on it. We will take a look at two of the best Android emulators for PC you can use.
Bluestacks is one of the best android emulators on the internet today and is used by millions of people worldwide to run android apps on their computers. In fact, it says on the website that the emulator is 6x faster than any smartphone! Here are the steps to follow:
· The first thing you have to do is download the Bluestacks software on your PC. The best and risk-free way to do that is by visiting the official site of the software itself. You can find the link to the site above.
· Download Bluestacks and install it. You will receive a prompt asking you to log in using your Gmail account. This is required because it will allow you to access Google Play Store from your PC.
· Once you sign in your Gmail account, you should now be on the home page of the android emulator. The home page should look like an android device and you will find some preinstalled apps common to android devices on the screen. One of these apps is the Google Play store app
· Tap on the Google Play Store app to open it and search "Clash of Clans".
· The game will appear at the very top of the search results. Install it.
· Once the installation is complete, you need to navigate to the "My Apps" tab on the Bluestacks app. On the new tab, you will find the list of all your apps. Click on the icon of the newly installed Clash of Clans game.
NOTE : You need to have an internet connection for the game to work. This procedure can also be done by downloading the Clash of Clans app manually but it wastes much time. This is why we won't discuss it.
NOTE : Your system must meet the requirements of the app. This is because BlueStacks is very powerful software. You must have an updated graphics driver and your computer should be able to run HD graphics applications. It is also important the system has about 4 GB RAM for optimal operation. If your computer does not have any of this, you can try the second software below.
Andy OS another Android emulator software that bears huge similarities with Bluestacks. The only difference is that the system requirements of Andy are not as high as that of bluestacks. The only thing your computer needs to have is 3gb Ram. This does not mean it cannot work on systems that only have 2GB of Ram. Also, the size of Andy OS compared to Bluestacks is considerably different. Andy OS is also good for people who want a light sized Android emulator. The only issue you might face is the slow loading of the apps. Your computer should also have a good graphics card that can run applications that requires HD drivers. So how do you install Clash of Clans on your computer using Andy?
- Download Andy Software. Simply click "Download Link" above to download the software.
- Install the application once you have completed the download.
- Once you are done, you have to create an account on Andy before you can proceed to the Android emulator. After signing up, you have to log in to Google Play Store using an Email address. Search "Clash of Clans" once you are signed in to the Google Play Store.
- Locate "Clash of Clans" by SuperCell and download. The installation should start automatically. Once that is done, you can launch the game straight from the Google Play Store app.
NOTE : Andy has an app that you can use to remotely access your game. The app allows you to access the Andy app on your computer through which you can then access the control app. You can download the Remote control app for Andy HERE
