Pros & Cons of Playing BitLife on PC
Mobile games are built for smaller screens. Developers expect that you will use your fingers and hand to control the game. So they design the game screens and develop the functionality by keeping that point in their mind. They do not expect that the players will use Android emulators on their Computers.
So controlling the game by keyboard and mouse will not give you the full gaming experience that the developers are intended to provide. But that is not a big issue in BitLife as it is mostly a text-based game, and you do not need to have a super reaction time to play BitLIfe.
Playing BitLife in a bigger screen itself is an advantage. You can see the text and messages more clearly.
As you are playing BitLife on your PC through an Android Emulator, your computer needs to have more resources. The Android Emulator takes a considerable amount of hard disk space and RAM. So your computer needs to be powerful enough to run the Android Emulator smoothly. If the Emulator does not run smoothly on your PC, you will face a hard time while playing the BitLife game on your PC.
Even though BitLife is only a mobile game, you can play it on your PC without any hassle. You need to install an Android Emulator like BlueStacks emulator on your PC. It will act as an inbuilt Android device on your PC, and you can install the BitLife game on your computer by downloading and installing through the Emulator.
