Playing Forward Assault on PC really makes it easier for those who prefer playing their FPS games with keyboard and mouse over a touchscreen, which can be accomplished with the use of an Android emulator.
What is Forward Assault?
Forward Assault is a free and fast-paced multiplayer First-Person Shooter mobile game for Android and iOS designed with tactical gameplay and detailed graphics in mind. There are frequent updates with dozens of guns to choose from and four available maps to play on. Game modes include Team Deathmatch, Defuse Bomb, Infected, and Gun Game. The game aims to be better than Critical Ops, another FPS mobile game.
