MEmu lets you access Android apps and games directly from your desktop.

Stuck on a Windows laptop or desktop computer without the ability to access Google Play? Join the club. Millions of people have just this same problem and MEmu is the ultimate solution. It simulates many previous versions of Android's operating system and lets you play the same popular games you've been enjoying for years on your phone. Once you've downloaded MEmu, you can immediately begin downloading games or apps and accessing them on your dekstop or laptop.

As an additional plus, more experienced users or even developers can tweak things and adjust certain parts of the Android operating system. That's the great news. Is there a downside to this particular emulator?

Unfortunately, yes, there are drawbacks. For example, some games simply don't convert well to MEmu's emulator and won't simulate on a desktop or laptop very well. Be aware that although the majority of games will both download and execute very well with MEmu, there are simply some games that won't have the necessary conversions to play on a desktop. Pokemon GO is one such example where you might run into trouble.

Developers can definitely enjoy MEmu and desktop game lovers will appreciate its powers. It simply doesn't replace the mobility of a phone, though, even if the games play. Some apps will be utterly useless on a desktop that must remain stationary. That said, if you're a big fan of Android games and want to play them on your desktop, this is a great program.
