Useful Features When Playing Plague of Z

BlueStacks isn’t the best just because it makes Android games available on your PC. The platform has so much more to offer than just porting your games. BlueStacks includes a bunch of useful features that make playing mobile gaming a lot more fun and improve your gameplay experience significantly. Take a look at some features that you might find helpful, making you think why you didn’t make the switch sooner.

  • Multi-Instance Function

The BlueStacks Multi-Instance Function is a feature that allows players to open two or more instances at the same time and manage them easily regardless of how many are open. This function is aimed towards users that like to play multiple games at the same time or players that open multiple instances of the same game to maximize their goals in-game. This function is versatile and can be used for a number of things depending on the player’s needs.

Plague of Z requires a lot of attention and is best left open on the side. However, the game isn’t really that action-packed and can be quite boring if you just stare at your city for a few minutes without it actually doing anything interesting. The best way to pass the time without sacrificing knowledge of your city’s progress is to open up another instance and play both these games side-by-side. You can open as many as you want as long as your computer can handle it.

  • Macro Feature

The Macro Feature is a tool that allows players to record and replay a set of commands done inside the instance. To put it simply, you can create your own automatic command that you can reuse as many times as you want to skip all the tedious tasks of a game. The instance allows you to store as many Macros as you like and customize them in any way so that you are given the option to do whatever you want in the game.

Plague of Z is pretty much an idle game since the only things you need to do upgrade buildings periodically and collect resources. If you don’t like the idea of logging in every 2 hours to collect resources, you can simply create a macro to do that for you which removes one boring part of playing the game. You can create other types of macros too depending on the situation as long as you know how to create basic macros in BlueStacks.

  • Keymapping Tool

The Controls Editor Function is a feature that allows players to create keyboard controls on any mobile game. This is done by allotting keybinds on specific points of the screen to emulate the keyboard and mouse control over a touchscreen surface. Players can also use this for controllers. This makes it easier to play Android games on the PC since this process is extremely simple and easy to learn. The hardest part is the transition stage which will only probably take an hour or so.

The game has an adventure system where the player can use their character to defeat multiple waves of zombies. It can be hard doing this with just your mouse tapping on the screen so it’s best if you have your keybind set for this mode. Luckily, BlueStacks has already set a default control layout for games like these so if you aren’t interested in making your own controls, you can simply use the one pre-made for you.

Become the Hero that the People Need You to Be!

In a world ravaged by an unknown illness, the people will need someone to look up to in order to lead them to safety. A lot of lives are at stake and the different communities aren’t into cooperating with each other. It’s up to you to find a way to make do with the limited resources you’re given to make sure that your people survive this world.
