Why this application is named Game Killer is unknown, but what we do know is that this app is not for killing games. Game Killer is in the business of memory modification, granting any user the ability to tweak the HP or currency values of games installed on an Android device. Or, in plain English: Game Killer lets you 'hack' your favorite games for fun and profit.
Sounds great, right? Right. But stick around for a moment before you rush off to download and install Game Killer APK; there are a few prerequisites to make the app run successfully. Failing to take any of these steps into account will result in frustration – and who needs that?
One: Your Android device must be rooted
From the reviews left around the web, this first step is the one that trips users up the most. Rooting an Android device is not always a beginner-level task, but Game Killer requires root access and will not run without it. There are many apps on the market to root a device, but should one of those not work for you, a quick Google search will return manual Android rooting instructions.
Generally, one knows if their Android is rooted. If you're unsure, though, launching Game Killer will result in a telltale 'insufficient permissions' error.
Two: 'Unknown Sources' must be turned on
Another hang up that new Game Killer users may encounter is an 'installation blocked' error. Simple to fix, this requires you to turn on the 'Unknown Sources' option within the device's 'Application Settings' (or 'Security') menu. Once this option is enabled, Game Killer should install smoothly and launch with superuser (root) rights.
A caveat: enabling installation of apps from 'Unknown Sources' is a significant security risk. For safety, only install trusted applications downloaded directly from the developer's website.
Three: Game Killer only modifies offline games
Bummer. Apologies to dashing the dreams of anyone hoping to use Game Killer for Clash of Clans! *Game Killer is unable to modify games with their data stored on remote servers so, if a game needs an Internet connection, this app won't work for them. A game must store its score/life count in resident memory for Game Killer to access and change it.
Four: The tutorial is not optional
Yes, you read that correctly. The tutorial is not optional. If you are to have success changing life, score, or coin values, Game Killer's tutorial needs to be followed to the letter. Confused, 'how do I do this?' reviews are second only to reviews unaware of the root requirements. Save yourself and easily avoid this by reading the developer's FAQ.
It's true that there's a lot of prep work involved with getting Game Killer up and running on your Android, but don't let that be a deterrent. Once set up, Game Killer works flawlessly and as promised. As the last word in this review, there is one more recommendation: shorten your learning curve and experiment with Game Killer in a simple game app first.
