Chicken Game, "the Chinese Google Stadia"

by

It looks like we'll see a new wave of game streaming services with the arrival of Google Stadia. A few days ago, NVIDIA introduced its own cloud gaming service to play games that run on remote machines. And now, from the depths of the internet has emerged Caiji Youxi (Which translates to Chicken Game), new China service that allows you to play PC games in the cloud either from your own computer or from an Android device.

For now, there are some limitations in the app, like reality not let you play more than an hour a day, in addition to having to wait to play certain games and sometimes experiencing ping that makes control difficult. Still, aside from the input lag, it's amazing how fluid the games work and how well they adapt to the limited connections you have.

  

We will focus on the Android client. The only requirement to use it is to have an account Wechat or QQ. We recommend the first one to easily register (simply install, enter your phone number and confirm with an SMS code). In fact, if you often test apps that have not yet left Asia, it is practically important to install this app on your mobile device.

After opening the application and receiving the required permissions, you must also activate special permissions so that you can show icons about other applications on the screen with the game in which you participate. After you do that, You will see a login tab which, as we said, you can fill in using the WeChat or QQ app. With the app installed and after tapping one of the two icons below the access area, you will finally enter the main menu where you can choose the game you want to play.

Among the many games available, you'll find popular options like Far Cry 5Devil May Cry 5, Mad Max, Battlegrounds Player Unknown and Far Cry 4. When you choose one of the registered titles (and after receiving the orange option in the popup), you will get your place in the queue to run the game. Some titles will take longer than others to start playing, and you can control how much time is left until your turn is on the floating icon mentioned above. When you see the game icon appear, you can enter the game.

When you access the game, you will see the virtual controls configured to replace the keyboard and mouse. However, the advantages of the button mean that on a small screen, everything seems too complicated. Fortunately, if you go to settings (the little settings icon you see in the top menu), you can Simulate a standard pad set by checking the highlighted options you see in the image below.

In this case, we chose not to include the application in the Uptodown catalog, because the VirusTotal analysis showed six positive results. There is no need to panic. They are harmless and are not malware; just a warning regarding pre-installed services and adware. However, we will prioritize our security policy and leave the installation to you. As we said, after competing for some analysis, everything seems to be fine.
