The Windows and Android are the seperate OS platform,so the apps based Android will not be able to run on Windows.

Yeah buddy, Windows 8 computer or laptop can run Android apps and games as well. You just need to help yourself through a software named BlueStacks. http://bluestackstutorial.com/
I own a blog on BlueStacks Tutorial, that's why I'm aware of this fact. So you're getting reply from a pro user.. Happy

I don't want to upset you but this question is pretty old and has lots of answer on the web. Have you heard of search engines?

Yes Its possible but it has limit

In reply to: Yes via Android Emulators

Sure, one can play Android games as well as Android Apps on Windows 8 tablets but see their is limitation here like Android and Windows environment is very much different and it will be difficult to get it work, like recently I played Clash of Clans on Windows 8 and it turned out to be really horrible experience (It caused my Windows 8 Tablet hanged)

So my simple and humble suggestion is to stay away from Android Emulator as much as possible.

Note: moderator removed direct link to game.
