Supercell’s Clash of Clans is one of the best mobile strategy games available for download on Android repositories. If you want to play Clash of Clans on your PC or any mobile android game for that matter you will need to download and install an android emulator.
An Android emulator is basically a program that provides an environment for Android applications to run on. The way it works is that it simulates various Android devices, such as phones, tablets, TVs, and even the most recent ‘wearables’. You can code your own android emulator, but there are already a lot of popular, free, and establish emulators you can download and use online. Sometimes it is better to make use of existing tools instead of ‘reinventing the wheel’ and if you just want to play Clash of Clans on your PC, then coding your own emulator seems a bit over the top.
There are a lot of good and reliable emulators to choose from, it is only a matter of patience and persistence when it comes to finding the right fit for you.
The following emulators are not ordered in anyway, but these are just some of the viable options you can choose from:

The Droid4x is a classic emulator that has been marketed for gamers, and though it hasn’t been updated in a while, it is still one of most viable candidate to enable you to play Clash of Clans comfortably on your PC. Its downside is that it is hard to install and has not be updated for some time now.
KoPlayer is another free Android emulator that has made itself available to the public just recently. It is one of the emulators developed with gaming in mind.
