Are you an avid Android gamer and stuck on a level which doesn’t let you pass and complete the game? Then Cheat Engine for Android might come to your rescue in hacking the game to pass the level.
Apart from helping to pass the level, Cheat Engine can hack Android games and get all in-app purchases which you need to complete the game.
Cheat Engine has been around for a long time. It was earlier available for only desktop (Windows) users. However, because of its huge success and positive response from its users, developers decided to launch Cheat Engine for Android.
CheatEngine can hack most of the Android games; however, we cannot expect it to hack or crack every sort of Android games. It can crack offline games and is not capable of hacking online Android games. It can crack almost any kind of single-player games, but it fails to crack multiplayer games.
Cheat Engine APK is available for both rooted and non-rooted Android devices. However, for some games, it requires root access to crack the game as the game files are locked, which requires root permissions to make changes to them.
