The Android gaming market has been growing smoothly over the years. Games like Clash of Clans, Asphalt 8 and Fruit Ninja have made big successes in the relatively new market. More and more studios are investing in Android to make games with great graphics and better gameplay mechanics. Several console titles like Red Dead Redemption have also been ported to Android and have made people choose Android over any other console.
With the full HD graphics and great multiplayer features, it is a shame that many games are being played on screens as small as 5 inches. Not many people will want to invest in consoles based on Android like the OUYA but what if we could have Android games running on our large computer screens with surround sound systems. That would be a truly immersive experience. Thanks to Nox App Player, this has now been made possible.
