You can checkout this game on your mobile devices, but if you wanna try it out before committing your precious mobile storage data, you can try it out on Leapdroid, an Android emulator! With Leapdroid, you can play mobile games or use popular apps on your computer. Leapdroid is currently the fastest emulator, from my experience, out there and is free to use. Consider giving it a shot!
