View Full Version : Playing Android Touchscreen Games On Gogglebox TV

As far as i can see, touchscreen games on Gogglebox or any android tv device by and large will not work. I have downloaded many and found for instance that Temple Run will not work. Also bad piggies, talking tom and im sure many others.

I assume that they will not work because they are configured for touchscreen operation and not mouse so any input from the mouse will not work.

So my question is, is there a way to play these games?

I think you can get round the problem by using droidmote and changing the size of the pointer. Check out this youtrube vid.

I think you need to use an external device that has a touchscreen, there are the chinese mouse/keyboard remotes and of course droidmote and im sure you can plugin an xbox controller but that doesnt replicate a touchscreen.

I think you have to accept that a llot of games made for touchscreen just wont work on an android tv product yet. But as they get more and more popular im sure a controller will comes out!!
