Clash of Clans for PC Download Without Bluestacks
There are many android emulators on the market now that you can download and use for free. Some would offer a month of free trial before requiring you to subscribe to them (that means paying them), while most others are free to use and usually with some in-app advertisements.

It is just second to Bluestacks in the emulator market (based on our opinion) and is growing fast. It is also pretty simple to install, download and use as compare to other complex emulators that requires code handling. It runs most apps and games just fine.

Well, if you have VMware previously installed, Andy installer will require you to uninstall it before you can run the installer which is the only downside we don’t use Andy for our main android emulator. If you don’t have VMware at the first place, the installer will run just fine.

Genymotion is yet another awesome android emulator. It runs based on VirtualBox (unlike Andy that runs on VMware). If you head to genymotion.com, you would probably be seeing a huge “buy now” button on the homepage. Genymotion is actually free for personal and non-commercial use. To download it for free, scroll down the page until you see their packages listed near the bottom of the home page. Select free personal use and start the download.
