  • If you install an apk or download it from Google Play, I don't see any reason for it not to run... Does your PC have a touchscreen??

    What does the play store app in your laptop show? It will show whether that app you are trying to install is compatible with your device or not.

  • It probably uses native code compiled for ARM, so it won't work on x86. Commented May 30, 2015 at 15:19

Depends. It may have some graphical issues considering drivers and probably a few other compatibility problems. The most major spike is the drivers here. If they work and are compatible with game, your game will run. Else it wont (I suspect graphical glitches). Honestly, its almost impossible to judge like that with just that much information provided so that leaves you with only ability to try it and see if it works.

But that aside, how do you plan on playing it? Even if you have/had touch screen I can barely imagine how its possible to play it.

Bottomline-> You can test it. Although I do have doubts in mind that you will be able to play it (not only due to hardware and drivers, but also due to control mechanics).

  • I dont have touchscreen.

  • I doubt that. It uses touchscreen controls... and there's no way you can emulate touching those specific areas or anything like that using mouse and keyboard. Why not just download GTA Vice City for pc itself? Commented May 30, 2015 at 10:40
  • but i donot have a windows PC i have installed android on my PC and accidently i have lost all my isos

I can't tell for sure since the official compatible devices is so limited

Phones : Motorola Atrix, Motorola Atrix HD, Motorola Atrix 4G, Motorola Photon, HTC Rezound, HTC One X, HTC One X+, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Samsung Galaxy Note, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Samsung Galaxy R, Samsung Epic 4G, Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung Galaxy S3, Google Nexus 4, Sony Xperia Play, Sony Xperia Sola, Sony Xperia S / P / T & TL, Sony Walkman Z Series Media Player

tablettes : Acer Iconia, Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, Asus Transformer Pad TF300T, Asus Transformer Pad Infinity 700, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 / 7.7 / 8.9 & 10.1, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, Sony Tablet S, Sony Tablet P, Sony Xperia Tablet S, Toshiba Thrive, Toshiba Regza, Google Nexus 7, Google Nexus 10, Fujitsu Stylistic 10.1


but if you enter the play store from your laptop (under the android x86 OS) and you can find and install the GTA vice city app it should work just fine if not you can ask for a refund.


Most of the games as you said Temple Run which did not run in your case so as with my prime os when I downloaded it from play store is designed for ARM processor, whereas our PCs have x86 processor{ so is the name android x86}. Just go to apkdl.in and search the game you can change the type to x86 there or just search it typing x86 in the google. Hope u'll find it.
