Angry Birds Star Wars Moon of Endor Level 5-20 Walkthrough

Our strategy for Angry Birds Star Wars Moon of Endor level 5-20 is to aim Han for the wooden neck of the AT-ST, shooting the pig atop his head. The AT-ST should eventually collapse backward, shooting the suspended branch and causing it to break in half. The score in the video below is 58,760.

If you have a different strategy feel free to leave a comment below; however, don't just post your score via the comments, as that's what the leaderboards are for.

“Over the Moon” Badge: Scores for this level have been capped at 159,000 points (triple the 3-star minimum). Obtaining a score in excess of the score cap on 5-20 or 5-29 qualifies you for this badge! However, a screenshot is required, proving the legitimacy of the score. Please reply below with a link to a screenshot, else your score may be removed.

It works better to send Han to the wooden neck as on video, but to shoot (to the right) later, after he hits the neck. This works almost every time, consistently giving scores in the 60s.

@annach – thanks for the tip in shooting late. I’ve got several scores over 61K and now 65130. I aimed at the neck as in the video and shot his lasers towards the right. They don’t actually hit anything at the right but they do chop of the AT-ST’s head and damage it. This causes the damaged head to fall in the right direction so that it’s lasers shoot everything down. The falling log will spilt in two, bounce off the drum and land on the AT-ST’s head which will give several thousand more “debris/damage” points before the level times out.

To be clear, I waited to shoot Han’s laser until after he makes contact with the wood piece of the At-ST’s neck as suggested by @annach. Thanks again, it works great!!!

Cheers! @annach I got an extra 5k with this strat. I actually waited till he was just through the wooden part of his neck and aimed for the pig in the top right tower. Think it gave the same end result though. The log split and crushed the AT-ST’s head ;) Just wish these levels wouldn’t time out so quickly :(

Just working thru these levels now & despite coming so very close with wicket182′s strategy, I went back to using @annach & once breaking thru the wood in neck I shot slightly up & to the right. I looked up from my phone screen, so I didn’t see the ensuing damage, but when looking down I saw a score of 67060. I’m still 14.6k from TopScore & 12.6k from Top 10, but this isn’t too bad a score so for now it will do

First of all, let me apologize for the sketchy comment I left on Oct 4. I guess, like many others, I became protective and forgot the spirit of the Angrybirdsnest community. I have been a member of this site since June after the Cloud City update became available. I have posted quite a few detailed strategies since then without worrying about whether my score would be beaten. This world of Endor has done something to us in that we seem to be very guarded in sharing good strategies. I have used other’s strategies in the past and it is only fair to share when I have something substantial to offer. Again, I must apologize for forgetting what makes this site enjoyable. It is very satisfying when I can share a strategy that helps others (even if my score is beaten). I hope that everyone will remember what our community is all about. The world of Endor has been very frustrating with the lack of sharing, which I am guilty of also. I aim to correct that on my part. For those that choose not to do so, rest assured that sometime in the future someone will figure out how the scores on some of these levels were attained and post the strategy, then any ill will which was garnered will have been for nothing. OK, enough of that, here’s the strategy in separate post below.

Just to clarify, this has absolutely nothing to do with luck. It took many hours to perfect and in Angry Birds fashion is very repeatable (read as a few hundred tries to get an acceptable score).

This is for I-phone so the aiming points may vary for other platforms.

Aim Han in a high arc to land on the top back corner of the AT-ST. The aiming point is the intersection of a small light grey branch in the background and the top of the screen. Han MUST hit the top corner of the AT-ST and bounce backwards and land on the hill so he can roll down and prevent the AT-ST from falling backwards.

Fire at the top right corner of the hanging log when near the top of the ascension. The log most fall prior to the AT-ST falling forward. This is the part which some may consider luck and the part which requires the most resets. The top half of the log MUST bounce between the structure and the AT-ST and land upright. The key to this is that the structure cannot be completely destroyed in the bounce. The left side is required to prevent the log from falling over.

The AT-ST will fall forward and rest on the upright log if all the above are done correctly. It will continue to fire into the end of the log accumulating an unreasonable amount of points.

Bounce Luke off the drum to finish off the right tower. Please practice this shot when the first two parts do not work right. The first time I had those two correct, I missed the end shot and almost cried.

I hope this helps relieve some of the frustration that many have felt on so many levels of Endor.

Many thanks @wicket182.

My hat goes off to those that discover such brilliant strategies. I have a few top scores but I can honestly say that I have never seen a level where no-one worked out what the strategy was – sooner or later.

For me it is a joy to work through a level where several atrategies are posted and tweak them to see which one cranks out a top 50 slot, when I fail to find it myself.

I have had one level in the past where my score was over and above everyone elses. I posted my strategy and it was deleted!. This was because it was vague and I honestly posted that I had been hammering out another strat when a one bird occured to my surprise. Subsequently, my score was beaten but that’s life and really not a bother. I am surprised and delighted to be in the top 10 for so long.

Strategies for MOE have been few and far between but each level brings fewer players. Tatooine has 1486 scores entered VS 299 on MOE.

Finally, just to say, your reference to perseverance is the best advice anyone can take. Anyone who thinks the top scorers breeze through the levels is badly mistaken!!!!

I took the vauge comments from @bluevertigo and @yor-el and did some experimentation. It has been my experience that there is very little luck involved with Angry Birds. What may initially appear to be luck can usually be analyzed and developed into a reliable strategy. Don’t get me wrong it was not easy or quick. There is no telling how many hundreds of times I restarted. I just watched what each adjustment did and refined it. That is usually the approach that I give to all levels.

@bonneypattycat, the assumption that you have to make is that when a score of a slinger who has been around for a while is 20K or 30K over the average score, the score is legitimate.

Your picture does not show the correct setup. If your bird bounces back to the left it should roll down with just enough force to both prevent the ATAT from falling backwards, but also cause it to gently fall to the right. As it falls, it will “Embrace” the log between the foot and the gun and with a bit of luck trigger the additional scoring. It is pretty repeatable.

MOE has precedent with 29 in what is clearly an anomaly that has skewed the scores like no other level.

As far as I am concerned, no – one has to share a strategy and no-one should feel pressured into doing so. That said, this site is not an excel spresdsheet of scores. A little give and take is what makes the site.

I agree that no one should have to share a strategy. It is a decision that each should be allowed to make for themselves. I believe that most of us share some strategies and other strategies we do not. Part of the fun is trying to figure out exactly how to “make it work”. It would not be much fun if all we had to do was read and follow an exact strategy and get the results. @wrm39 is always very helpful, unlike so many others.
My post above was not in support of forcing an explanation. Perhaps I should have been clearer. It was not until after I posted a detailed strategy (that I would have posted anyway) that the initial score I got on MoE 5-29 was posted. Coincidence maybe, but it took a few days.

Regarding the sharing of strategies: Of course, no player should be forced to share a strategy, that woulld go against the rules of ABN. I do think though, that players should be encouraged to share, without malice, when a highly exceptional top score is posted. Hey, no harm is asking ;) It is also helpful, and courteous, when the player posts an image of the score, without prompting, as was done here. I would ask players to stop and consider how many of their high scores were achieved with the help of other players, and balance that when considering whether or not to share a strategy. Yes, many of us are not as dedicated as the very top players and gain from their posts more than we are able to share in return, but many of us lower-their players share every single time we have even a nibble of information that might help others.

Encouraged to share, pressured to share, forced to share…It’s a slippery slope. I personally love to share. I get a warped sense of self worth from helping others. I’ve never turned down a request for help. But the second I feel it’s mandatory, I’ll close up shop.

As far as glitches like Anchors Away. I was very happy to see Admin cap the score. You don’t get a sense of competition if one level, that will probably be fixed with the next update, dictates the leaderboard. And this is the opinion of the current holder of the high score for Anchors Away. Over seven million. If that score were incorporated in my total, it would eliminate the incentive of others to compete. I’m here for the competition, the challenges. Otherwise, I might as well be in a small dark room playing with myself. lol

As far as timing the release of information. Some of our more interesting strategies in Space have been born out of a sense of competition with @goavs4, @burpie, and @happyshake. We don’t always release our secrets immediately upon discovery. We compete with each other to the point of absurdity first. Bragging rights. But we always release them. They’ve just been refined first. So I fully understand and encourage someone to sit on a new strategy for a day or two. Perfect it, enjoy it, revel in it for a while @wrm39. It is after all, yours!

Having said all the above, I am a little bit of a hypocrite. I’m currently sitting on a glitch in Space 3-10. I’ve made @birdleader aware of it, but haven’t released it to the general populace. I was able to get complete destruction of everything including part of the planet. It is, at this time, a useless strategy because the score goes so high, so quickly, that it gives you an alphabetical score instead of using numbers. It then proceeds to reset your high score to zero because it doesn’t know how to add letters to your score. I may release it as an April fool’s strategy. LOL

Just my two cents. Way to go @wrm39. CongRATulations.

@Rat, it would not be the first time I disagreed with management over what scores should be allowed ;). We had quite a debate not long ago on a Seasons level where the glitch was only available to those who had access to an old version, but the the strategy was posted long after most had updated to the latest version. I lost that one.

@rat9 — I assume you meant you flung a bird first? That is the kind of result that is listed in the unstable level list. Does it always go to the computers idea of infinity and then back to 0, or does it sometimes stop somewhere else? In any case, if it goes back to 0 and stops, you probably can’t get a high score.
Is it fun to watch? April is a long ways away; Rovio might well fix it before then.

Today we have ABO, ABS, ABRio, ABSW, ABSW2, ABSpace, ABFriends, ….. Some here play all of the games. But because it can just be too overwhelming to try to keep higher scores in all of them, some of us have chosen to focus only on one or two. You’ll find that in all of the different games, there are some astronomical shooters who quite honestly would have the highest scores even if there were no forums to share strategies in. They have the time, the patience, the ingenuity, the “whatever it is” that pushes them to find the exact pixel that will trigger the results that some of us would only through luck ever see. But whether you’re the astronomical shooter or not, I think without exception we all come here to confirm how good (or bad) our scores are and to see what the strategy was if our scores aren’t where we want them to be. If it weren’t for the sharing of strategies, this place would only exist as a scoreboard and would have gone by the wayside like several other AngryBird websites that I won’t mention, but that don’t exist today.

This statement: “If you have a different strategy feel free to leave a comment below; however, don’t just post your score via the comments, as that’s what the leaderboards are for.”; shows on every video strategy published here at ABN. It is not an indication that you have to mandatorily share different strategies, but it is an encouragement to share. And Thank God, most willingly share.

MoE has been an exceptional level due to the glitches it has. And because the glitches can bring in truly unbelievable scores, we have perhaps “over-encouraged” players to share. As @bluevertigo seems to have discovered these glitches before anyone else – his original scores in 5-20 and primarily in 5-29 are what made the rest of us even guess that they existed. He should have been praised (and he could have been) for the discovery but instead, he was regrettably the brunt of much of this “over-encouragement.” While the spirit of ABN is sharing, it isn’t mandatory. I confess I played a part in the “over-encouragement” first started in 5-29 and perhaps even here in 5-20. To those who felt pressured by me, please accept my apology.

Emphatically, I want to say that strategy sharing is optional and not mandatory. But just like on the very occasional instance where I get I high score and share the strategy, believe you me, I’m going to ask you to share your strategy when I see you post a super-high score. I don’t ask because I don’t believe the score, I ask because I want to experience that euphoria of hitting it too. If you choose not to share it, that is acceptable, and I won’t hold it against you. We have to believe that the score is, in fact, possible and look for a way to find it. This is what happened in 5-29. But how glorious it is when an incredible discovery is shared and all can feel the personal satisfaction that attaining the high score brings.

Fling Han in an high arc so that he hits the back of the AT-ST’s head at the area around the 2nd or 3rd small horizontal line from the top. The AT-ST should fall backwards whereas the wooden neck with the head tilt forward.
On his way up Han has to shoot the trunk when he reaches the same height (or slightly below) as the group of flowers on the left side of the floating rock.
The left log destroys the head.

The leg is shaking and after 30-40s the points starts to rise. At the beginning a little faster then slower, with approximate 90000 points a day.

This is the usual and highly repeatable way. But if you can manage to land the log on the leg instead of beside then are significantly faster growth possible.

Until BPC said just below the ears, which caused a light-bulb to illuminate the darkness of my brain, I had been aiming for the front of the AT-ST’s head instead of the back.

On the hill below the slingshot, there are 3 white flowers, and to the right of these there is a small clump of grey vegetation. I think my aim point corresponds to pulling back Han until the stylus is roughly on the center of this clump.

This is despite the fact that I have a second fast one going (I think). So far it’s almost as fast as the 1st one.
alo10w’s tip about shooting as soon as possible has helped me get the slow one going fairly frequently (~1/10?), but the fast one still seems to be a chance variation on the slow one and takes lots of tries >50?).
Interesting observation on this one: the log fell very close to the round wood joint, which for sure was pushed all the way in, and the leg was vibrating slightly. Nothing happened until the log was vibrated so there was a gap between it and the round joint as shown in wrm39′s pic. It took more like 60 sec rather than the usual 20 to 40 for the points to start accumulating.

I find that that is what I love about ABN. We love playing this game and this is the only place that has such creative and talented players that can dissect this game to exploit any weakness that may be found. I am never in favor of penalizing anyone who has the time, energy and effort to find such weaknesses even if I am not able to take advantage of it myself. So I am super happy that you so selfishly shared what you have found and allowed the rest of us to experience it.

TBH, there are so many games now that I haven’t even played a new update fully, except for AB-S-AE at Christmas, in over a year. I just do the daily challenge mostly now and try to concentrate on one level a day otherwise I would get quite disheveled and smelly trying to keep up with them all.
FWIW, I would hazard a guess that if MoE is as glitched or bugged as reading this thread suggests, a patch by Rovio may be in the works. (though they haven’t always done so)so players git -ta-flingin’!

Which MoE levels should be on unstable levels list? Your thoughts appreciated.
@wrm39, @bonneypattycat, @wicket182, @to-walking-tall, @yor-el, @chiefbumpa, anyone else interested in unstable levels / glitch levels. Right now I see 5-20 and 5-29 as needing to be classified as unstable levels, but what about 5-5, 5-30, and possibly others? It seems that on some levels getting the AT-ST to fall in a position where maximum destruction occurs is necessary for a top score. However, once someone has found a strat to do this, what was once a gap between the highest scores and lower scores fills in. On 5-29 there is still a large gap and a hugh difference in scores, which indicates the presence of a real glitch or instability. On 5-20 it appears that >1M score might be possible.
FYI, for those of you that don’t know, there is a forum on self-destroying and unstable levels, and I am planning to add at least 5-20 and 5-29 to the list of unstable levels.

@Wicket182 — Thanks for posting! What’s your opinion on 5-30? Can you explain why for both 5-5 and 5-23?
5-5 has a pretty gradual increase up to the top score, although the top is ~5K above second. Do you think you got the glitch / instability to work for your score on 5-5?
Hadn’t looked at 5-23 before. There is nothing much posted above 78K. I assume you and the others in high 70s / low 80s think there is a glitch differentiating your scores from the high score?

I could not get the glitch to work on 5-5, probably did not spend enough time trying. It is well documented in the comments for that level. Only one person has experienced the glitch in 5-23 but it is also documented as being responsible for the top score. Pretty certain that 5-30 does not have a glitch (at least not discovered yet). There are actually more points available in 5-30 than the top scores with the right fling using normal scoring.

In my opinion should be each level on the list which generates actually impossible scores. When the points are clearly higher than theoretically achievable then something must be wrong.
But 5-30 does not belong to the list, I have not noticed one single glitch in this level. The points are already there, in all these wooden trunks, logs, wheels and pieces. You just have to destroy as much as possible.

I’ve been able to trigger the “anomaly” on 5-5, 5-20 and 5-29. This anomaly involves the ATAT Laser and a Log that allows for more than the typical 2000 points before blowing up. I’m sure it’s there for 5-23 but haven’t triggered it. Can’t say for sure in 5-30 but expect that it exists. Triggering it doesn’t always result in a high score, it does result in higher than the normal score though. And it does seem to have some point that eventually blows the log up and stops the scoring.

This log “anomaly” is different, in my opinion, than the latest “glitch” that it is bringing in the huge scores. I’ve triggered the slow and the fast versions. Both are very repeatable, but the difference is in the potential points. I believe the anomaly has a point limit, whereas the “glitch” doesn’t seem to have one. After 6 hours with the fast version, I’m at 250,000 and counting.

@AMslimfordy — It seems to me the glitch reported by @wrm39 is real, and could result in scores ~1M or more. I assume that you will cap the scores, as was done on S-15. But at what value? There are already scores entered on MoE-29 >500K, and it seems to me the cap should be the same for each level within the episode.
BTW, I don’t think either of the MoE levels deserves a badge, because it seems fairly easy to get the glitch to start, unlike S-15.

Hi @mvnla2

I think the numbers that got the glitch on 29 speaks for itself – compare with s-15. I scored it but on the lower end of the scale – still took hundreds of attempts.

FTR I have no problem with a cap or seeing my own score(s) reduced.

I genuinely feel the glitch’s on MOE kill the overall competitiveness element where fighting for an extra two or three thousand on levels can (and should) make a real difference.

This is (I believe) the experience and gameplay that Rovio intended.

I heartily endorse a cap on this level, lower than it appears to be now. Let’s keep MoE competitive without players needing to tie up their device for more than a day, or even half a day. Say, 100-500k, something like that. I lean towards 500k, so players are at least challenged to get the fast version going.

There is also the matter of the badge. Rather than having a badge for this level alone, how about one for finding these kind of levels? To get the badge you would need to post a strat that is detailed enough that others can get the glitch going. On this level, I would give it to wrm39, who found the glitch, and alo10w, who posted details on how to get the fast version going. The badge could be given just for levels like this one, S-15, and DZ-4 (don’t remember if this was limitless), where the score potential seems limitless, or it could include other MoE levels like 5-29, 5-5 and 5-23, where you really need the glitch to reach a top score, even though the top score is limited.

@wrm39 Well done for sharing – followed your strategy to the letter, took a few flings to get log on leg set up.
Scoring rate initially around 440/min. After 40 mins rate rose to 550/min and remained there until the end. I see no reason why it would not have run on and on and on ……. But it seemed pointless (oxymoron)
Compared to 5-29 this was straightforward I think I spent the same amount of time flinging on 5-29 as I did watching the score clock up on 5-20 – about 30hrs.
It is a level playing field – the same for everybody and with generous spirited players like wRm you even get the strategy supplied.
Having said that the reward does seem disproportionately high for a copyist.
Whatever is decided about about the cap I really don’t want to repeat the exercise to score endlessly high numbers, apart from the frisson of wondering if the episode will crash, it is a bit boring.
I did take the precaution of disabling the wifi while it was running.
I took my lead from wRm and only posted 1,000,000.

I believe that the Angry Birds Star Wars iOS Gamecenter was fixed in an update which set score limits to prevent the hacking issue which was evident from the start of the game. The scores on 5-20 probably cause the episode score to exceed the limit and therefore are excluded. The user I was referring to above has not scored > 1,000,000, so their iOS episode score is still visible in iOS and is significantly lower than their episode score posted here.

I fear the we have entered the area where the “Law of Unintended Consequences” operates.

1) In the case of 5-20 a reasonably achievable strategy allows scores almost equal to the entire MoE total score (or even more) even with a cap of 1,000,000 this is still huge at nearly 30% of the previous total score. Ultimately there could be scoreboard with just endless 1st equals all scoring 1,000,000 (or lesser amount if there is a lower cap)

Have we rendered 5-20 uncompetitive and redundant?

Or should it be considered a gateway through which you need to pass to be in the upper part of the leader board?
I think this is my favoured option.

Concerning 5-29 it is so hard that few are going to trouble the scorer but maybe a cap is a reasonable idea.

2) Unwittingly those of us linked to iOS Game Centre are suspected of hacking, and we lose our ranking, which is really annoying, a situation that I hope can be remedied.
@amslimfordy what do you think?

Whilst I am on the subject, the player at the top of the Star Wars overall leader board in the iOS Game Centre only appears in one other leader board (Death Star) in 72nd place !!!

3) So what could be done

a) Leave the situation as is and leader board fills up with equal scores, if we knew what the trigger point in iOS was for losing ranking, that would be a possibility.

b) Leave the situation as is – but you have to score 1,000,000 (or other agreed figure) but can only post say previous (before the glitch) highest score + 10% (or some other number which is an appropriate order of magnitude)

Whatever happens I think @wrm39 should have a premium so that he remains in first place.

@AMslimfordy,
Here is my level completion screen with a score of 193,830

http://angrybir.de/1lQyzWX

and a restart showing my score

http://angrybir.de/1ck6Pjv

Not sure about everyone else, but mine was updating 10 points about every 10 seconds (or 1 pt/sec) which means it would have taken about a week to match some of the impressive scores shown. I play on my phone and it has been running this level since Friday night about 10pm (eastern). Its now Sunday, about 11:30am eastern. I was so worried that I would get a call and wreck it all.

@sparty83 The highest scores, above 500k were mostly likely achieved in fast mode, 25-30k per hour. Not terribly difficult to get started with a little practice.

@bonneypattycat,
I broke 159k so I am happy for the moment. May try 5-29 and try to get both. (I know I only need 1).
May try this level again after my phone cools off after running this level for about 36hours.

It’s really good to see a glitch that people who benefited from it willing to post their strats and screen caps. Not just posting thier huge scores after the glitch is no longer available. If you can’t tell, I am still a bit bitter about missing out on the Angry Birds Seasons Wreck the Halls Level 1-23 that, contrary to some, was NOT widely known about.

It’s probably like the anchor’s away glitch. I had that one started several times and it would fail. It took me about a week of constant trying before i got it. Hope that’s not the case for this one. Looks like I will be without my phone for a day or 2

I looked at the first screen shot for the trajectory. On my first shot using it, I got my phone to start the glitch. The screen shot is zoomed in. I tried several times zoomed out but could not get the right angle. My phone has been running since about 10pm eastern last night and this morning, approx 6am, its up to 61k. Slow going but it’s still going.

Good Luck!

@amslimfordy,
Are you going to make some sort of spreadsheet with a list of users and high scores for this like you did for the Anchors Away badge?

Hopefully, later today I will be posting a screenshot (if all goes well) for my badge. Currently at 160k and counting.

@wrm39 Thanks for the great description. All the hubbub about these levels has gotten me to give it a go, too. And I don’t play AB Star Wars :-)

@amslimfordy I won’t say no to another badge (I post a screenshot if/when I get enough points) but in the mean time I have 3 suggestions:

If we simply have to demonstrate that the glitch works, you can set the bar much lower than 159k. With AB Space S-15 we only required an additional 15k points to demonstrate that it worked – here it’s a 100k. (Or perhaps needlessly tying up a phone/ tablet for many hours is a deliberate part of the challenge ;-)
I propose a High-IQ badge for these levels for the people who shared the trick! Retroactively for the Seasons Greedings 1-16 Feather and Anchors Away achievement, too.
And I propose that a High IQ badge is sufficient reward for any future revelation of these things (and Rovio will mess up again… they’re only human). I.m.o. handing out badges to dozens of Nesters for showing up and following a single level walkthrough slightly cheapens the ‘earned’ badges. Even the Underdog badge mostly requires a couple of hours of actual effort, and you can only win the Underdog badge once.

I usually play on a phone but I didn’t want to leave my phone grinding over these two levels for 12 to 70 (?) hours. By investing 30 minutes, I’m now playing them on a PC instead. For free and perfectly legit. If you’re interested, here’s how:

Install Bluestacks on a PC. 15 minutes.

In Bluestacks, open the Google Play Store and grab AB Star Wars, Total Commander and Gmail. 10 minutes.

Email your game progress to yourself and place the files in the right place in Bluestacks with Total Commander. 5 minutes.

Granted, if you don’t have quick access to your save game on the phone this step will take longer. In this case, either follow the backup procedure detailed elsewhere on this site or replay levels 1-19 from scratch.

Then start Star Wars and get the glitch going in level 20. 1 minute.

Total time spent: from 30 minutes to an hour (if you have to replay levels 1-19 from scratch.)

Then go about your business. You can finish level 20 when you have enough points and instantly proceed with level 29. Bluestacks will run in the background, so you can still use your PC for other stuff.

5-20 in fast mode takes about six hours to run to the cap. It usually takes me less than fifteen minutes to get fast mode started. I start it before going to bed, then with a little luck it won’t crash before morning. I have done it a number of times now, not much sweat involved. I do not know how long 5-29 takes, that glitch is much, much harder to even get started.

@burpie by the time this not very computer literate person attempted all of your “easy” steps, Rovio would have removed the glitch! As BPC said, six hours on the quick mode and you’re done, albeit I couldn’t get it going as often. Any news on your success or not, as the case maybe?

@swelld, Sorry for misreading your question. The only things similar Ive seen for iOS are iPadian – but I don’t know if these guys are for real or if this software is just a vehicle to cram your computer full of malware – and Apple’s own iOS simulator, which is too stripped down to run games.

Also Bluestacks isn’t the full Android environment – just an Android app player. I did install Android as a VM separately but I had a problem installing ABSW from the Google Play Store. With Bluestacks everything went smoothly.
