Android emulator designed for playing Tencent games on a PC.
Tencent Gaming Buddy is a free gaming platform created by Chinese state-controlled company Tencent that was recently transformed into the GameLoop platform.
The application functions mainly as an Android emulator which allows users to play PUBG Mobile applications. The Gaming Buddy provides a number of tweaks that may not be available on certain mobile devices.
A huge selection of free mobile games
Once in the program, you're able to download a number of games from the main interface. It's all rather neatly laid out with a tabbed interface with a selection of available games in a number of categories and the "My Games" tab which lists games which have already been installed.
The browsing of games is pretty comprehensive and all games are organized into specific categories: FPS, MOBA, Apps, RPG, Casual, Arcade, Strategy, MMORPG, Auto Battler and ACT.
Optimize performance by changing hardware optimization and settings
Tencent Gaming Buddy also has optimizations and tweaks for rendering graphics: OpenGL, DirectX, OpenGL and a "Smart Mode". Resolution, Processor, Memory, Anti-aliasing and DPI can also be set.
All in all, Gaming Buddy is an interesting way to access Chinese state-run games if they're a niche you're interested in.
