LeapDroid is an emulator of the Android operating system, which, according to the developers, works much faster than its analogues. The performance gain in relation to other emulators is felt not only in the system itself, but also in games. LeapDroid copes perfectly with "heavy" three-dimensional projects thanks to "built-in" support for GLES 1.1 and GLES 2.0. The program also uses Virt Fiber I/O and LeapGL libraries, which greatly accelerate the drawing of graphics in the emulator.
As you have already understood, this program is perfect for running Android-games on Windows. For gamers in the emulator there is a possibility of assigning mouse and keyboard keys for certain actions. For example, you can set up character controls in the shooter on the usual WASD, a shot at the left mouse button, and a reload on the R. What could be better than playing mobile games with the usual gadgets?
When you start LeapDroid, you will need to enter data from your Google account. If not, simply create a new one directly from the program interface. Also, the emulator will need some time to download Android updates to version 4.4.4. Unfortunately, the developers of LeapDroid have completed work on the project, so that the official updates to it will no longer be available and Android KitKat will remain the latest supported version of the operating system from Google.
Games and applications on LeapDroid can be downloaded from the Play Market, which is initially "embedded" in the emulator. Installing an application from an APK file is not easy. To do this, you will need to use the Windows command line.
