One of Android’s strengths is the ease with which you can load different emulators, from console emulators to OS emulators. There is no shortage.Given that emulators are so popular with Android, it’s no surprise that an enterprising developer created a Windows Phone emulator (in this news Recently shared on Reddit)The emulator is very much a work in progress as it is in the early stages of development, but the developers Already tested 15 XNA gamesand they’re probably working with Vulkan, which certainly sounds promising.

you can find New WPR emulator GitHub page hereand you can also hook apk hereThe emulator can run Windows Phone 7 and 8 XNA apps. Of course, sideloading unknown APKs can be dangerous. GitHub is commonly trusted, but since we went ahead and installed the APK to see what’s going on, we don’t need to install it. After installing the APK on my trusty Redmagic 7S Pro, the app started itself and I was able to track down some XNA files that the emulator seems to support (sorry, you’ll have to find these yourself) , I tested them. Sadly I can’t seem to get a single game to actually launch. I can add supported games to the app (unsupported titles will fail on install), but when I try to launch them the emulator crashes for some reason. Perhaps the XNA files I have are not exactly what you need, or they are in their early stages and may have bugs depending on the device you use.

Still, I wasn’t able to launch the XNA Windows Phone files, but I have no doubt that many Android users will appreciate a fully functional Windows Phone emulator.

Sure, polish and support obviously have a way to go, but it’s definitely exciting to see new emus popping up, especially for Windows Phone, so I’m hopeful that work on WPR will continue.
