Android Gaming Part 1

In my Four  week independent study of Android gaming i've decided to do a three part article as one article would be to long. Part 1 the emulators I'm all about pushing android to the limits one way to do this is by emulating other devices. here are the ones i will be discussing. Part 2 will be the installation of each emulator and Party 3 will be Android Game Apps this was an independent study wich means that i was not paid by any of the apps or sites i talk about in the articles below and of course i paid for all the apps and do not condone piracy of these apps if you like what you read or it is helpful buy me a beer thanks and enjoy
