So I recently got the Google Play Store on my Acer Chromebook 14, and the good news is I can run Blitz at very high standards.

The bad news is that I have touch controls on my non-touchscreen laptop. Welp.

WG, if you could implement an option to use keyboard controls for the Play Store, this would be much appreciated.

Here are photos attached.

I'm at least happy that they took a step forward and made it available through the Play Store. Next step is to make it playable for those with keyboards.

WG nerfed google

 

But for real though, getting an ipad pro soon, and I should be able to connect the smart keyboard (if I chose to get one) and be able to play via that way. Dunno how it would work, but it should be added

On the bright side, that's one less to worry about in the Little Runner Boy event on December 22!  :trollface:

I can still drag the cursor for the movement, so there's still a sliver of hope. But I won't be able to see who is chasing me. Or see forwards. Rip.

Considering that a Chromebook doesn't even run on an Android system you are lucky that the app even opened.

Play Store is being made available to Chrome OS so now we can use pretty much every Android app.

Plug in an external keyboard.

Restart chrome book.

Start Blitz

 

Blitz should recognize you are using a keyboard and load the appropriate interface settings.

(then again, it should have done that with the laptop's keyboard, but it's worth a shot)

 

If it doesn't work, try pugging in an external mouse as well.

If Blitz recognizes you are now using K&M, you shouldn't need to keep them connected while you play.

 

Godd luck.

I doubt that there is a keyboard and mouse option for the Android version, which is what the Chromebook runs. How many Android devices support a mouse and keyboard? None that I'm aware of.You need a touchscreen Chromebook.

Considering how many non-touchscreen Chromebooks are eventually going to get the Play Store, shouldn't they make an option to support both platforms?

Ratbat, I hope you are listening :(.

This game might become unplayable for me because of this. 

A keyboard-mouse implementation switch for the Android version would be nice so I can play it on my Chromebook b/c the Play Store downloads the same version.
