If you know someone who loves to play videogames like "Clash of Clans" or "Angry Birds Fight" on their Android smartphone, or if that's you, you know that playing games on those small screens is pretty fun. But even the most hardcore gamer wants to take the action to a bigger screen, at least once in a while.

The trouble with a lot of Android games like "Heroes Charge" is that they're stuck on that small screen. You can play until your thumbs ache, and you will.

But there's a bigger way to play. You can play those Android games on your PC or Mac, without plugging in any wires.

There is a download to help you bring those warriors from "Clash of Clans" to the big(ger) screen. It's called Andy the Android Emulator (AndyRoid.net) and you download it right onto your computer.

You play the games the same way, too, except for one really big change. You use your smartphone as the game's joystick, instead of swiping a touch screen with your thumbs.

AndyRoid also has a bonus for anyone in your life who chats on social media. Meaning, everyone. Andy the Android Emulator also lets you use apps like SnapChat and WhatsApp on a larger computer screen.

Download instructions

Click on blue link below, then choose Download on the AndyRoid site. Following the download steps is pretty easy.

Note: The download and the install can each take 15 minutes or longer, including long stretches where it doesn't seem to be doing anything. Once it's installed, click on specific game titles to download them.
