now if you were to play some retro games
on your 4k firestick or on your Android device or your Nvidia shield you have a
couple of different options you can download retroarch from the Google Play
Store or one of the other emulators now the trouble with that is you will have
to find the roms manually yourself you probably will have to do some level of
configuration you may also need to download some BIOS files depending on
which console you’re trying to emulate now unfortunately for lots of you that
process is just too long-winded maybe too complex and just requires too many
steps before you can actually start playing your first retro game now is
there any alternative well in this video today let me share with you a single apk
that you can install onto your Amazon device or your Android box or your
Nvidia shield now this application will give you access to thousands and I
really do mean a thousands of retro games that you can download directly
from the application itself so no manual searching or downloading and
transferring needed on top of that it doesn’t have any adverts it doesn’t need
the mouse toggle and it’s also 100% free coming up right after this if you need
to the channel and you want to stay up to date with the latest tech tutorials
the latest for snake Android and Android TV tips and tricks then please do
subscribe to the notification barrel it’s a small click from you but it makes
a big difference to me thank you okay so to get this amazing apk onto your device
the first you want to do is go to your settings go over to my device my fire TV
go to developer options and just make sure both these options are set to on
once you’ve confirmed that let’s press the HOME key you now want to launch
download are now I prefer to use downloader but you can really use any
browsers that you like that will allow you to download
apks like I know lots of you on Android TV boxes all use puffin TV when puffin
TV is also available for the fire stick and that’s also a great alternative if
you don’t use downloader but for this demonstration let’s open up downloader
let’s now navigate to my website which is HTTP colon full search for slash tech
doctor UK comm and let’s click on go or press the play button on your remote now
when you get to the website we need to do two things first you need to confirm
that javascript is enabled and secondly we need to view my site in full screen
now to do that if you just press the context C which is one of the three
and hey we can see because my device says a disabled JavaScript that shows
you that javascript is already enabled if your says enable JavaScript go into
your settings and set the option enable JavaScript but microfiber you can see
that’s all in a board so then think I need 2 SEC now is a full-screen mode
let’s click on that now and the benefit of that is is because I’m having a
slight issue on my website where when the fullscreen mode is off you actually
see a hamburger menu which then has all of these pages in soft like a drop-down
menu but for some reason as soon as you click on the drop-down menu it seems to
close straightaway so that is a but I’m currently investigating but for now if
you look at my website in full-screen mode we can see all of the pages there
and the page we’re looking for is downloads so let’s click on that now and
let’s scroll down and what we’re looking for here under games retro we can see we
have a happy chicken I’ve actually added two updating versions here you’ve got
the TV edition which is perfect for your first take or your Android TV boxes but
if you do want to play these games on your cell phone if you do have an
Android phone download happy chick fern edition but because we didn’t on a fire
stick I’m going for the TV edition let’s click on that and click on the green
download button now begin the download of the happy chick apk now the other
thing you can do if you want to is you can actually use your phone your Android
phone as a virtual controller now to do that if you back out of this and scroll
down again you can see here it here’s the happy chick virtual controller so if
you do have an Android phone you can install this apk then using this
application you’ll have a virtual controller that you can use to control
or play happy chick but for this video I’m gonna leave that as is and I’m just
gonna use a Bluetooth controller ok so once you download it and install the apk
let’s go to the home key now before we open it I know there are people in the
community who don’t actually like happy trick because they say it’s a Chinese
application they don’t fully trust it they’re almost happening in the
background I mean I’ll use it myself as a happy
chick for more than a year and I’ve never had any problems I mean people do
prefer using retroarch and there’s a couple other like emulators you can use
the only trouble is as I’ve seen with some my previous videos for many of you
is just unfortunately too complex so maybe the whole process of retroarch
downloading cause and finding roms and transferring roms for lots of you that’s
just you know too much or it’s inconvenient the reason why I like happy
cake it’s a self-contained apk so you do
everything you want and need through the single application so you start the
application you find a game you want to play the application will then download
the game for you and allow you to play it so that kind of ease and convenience
is what I do think for many of you you will prefer using this compared to
something like a retro art or another emulator but for now let’s open that up
okay so exceeds the best emulator games it’s now loading and here we are boys so
and now this message is very important we see it did say network unavailable I
don’t know some of you the previous version were also getting this message
but in reality it doesn’t actually affect anything so it’s not gonna affect
me you know downloading something it’s not gonna affect me playing something so
if you do see that message don’t worry about it and in fact let’s test that
straightaway so let’s just go and search something which we know is going to
search online so let’s click on search that’s nice let’s now search for Mario
and just to confirm like we have connection and we can’t connect on
things so for example here we can see this game here I can click on that we
can see I don’t have this game already but I can now download it so let’s click
on that and I should now begin the download process for me let’s give that
a second we can see we get a progress bar because it’s now downloading so that
kind of convenience that kind of ease is again why do you feel for lots of you
having an emulator or an application like this it’s just so much easier than
trying to configure something yourself so now that’s configured or now that’s
downloaded before we start here we have to configure a controller now I
typically use a Bluetooth controller when I’m playing these kind of games now
if you want to configure your own remote control as a controller you can do this
but obviously will be limited in how many buttons you can actually map
especially for n64 which had a few buttons but let’s see if we can actually
do that so let’s back out of this let’s go to the game we want to place let’s
click on the first one here now where it says controller we can see there’s no
controller second for player one let’s click on that now let’s now choose the
Amazon fire TV remote let’s click on that and let’s now click on customize
key so we can actually map these buttons on our forest ik so let’s click on
customize keys ok so now we have to choose what do you want for up-down
left-right what do you want for a be XY and then I’ll see the shoulder buttons
but again because we’re limited in buttons I’m only going to configure a
few of them so let’s say for example we going to hold it in landscape mode and
let’s go down okay so for up we’re gonna click this and it says press a button
for up so I’m gonna press this okay so setting safes if we’d never
get tick there as well so it up is saved let’s go for a left which is gonna be
this one okay let’s go for right which is gonna be this one and let’s go for
down which is going to be down all right so I’m going to just focus on a and B
because I’m gonna going to map to button so let’s go for a let’s let’s go for
rewind for a and then forward for B so let’s go for that let’s press a it’s a
button phase rewind and then for B let’s do forward for that and now we need
something for star so for start lets us do let’s do the play button full stop
it’s a press start and press the play button alright so now we’ve mapped some
buttons let’s back out off this let’s try an it’s game with the standard fry
stick remote control let’s click on download get that starts downloading
that’s now ready to go let’s click on launch now once you let go to player one
and let’s now try playing this game with the built-in fire stick remote control
okay let’s click on launch okay let’s do level one and there it is we are now
playing this classic game which is actually not the best mario games i’ve
ever played on our 4k fire stake using the built-in remote control Avex that’s
working absolutely fine okay let me see if i can jump over this
Koya and that’s working absolutely great okay so I’ve just installed the virtual
controller on to my android phone we can see now it’s straight to it takes over
literally soon as you start here as long as it says your your device name this
one says EFT for you know Amazon fire TV and it’s green which means I’ve now made
a connection to my fire stick I hope my Wi-Fi now can now control this so then
between the controller to this press a choose my phone there I can now click on
launch and let’s see if we get a pair performance like this so so the virtual
controller can take a few moments before it connects guys but once it does
connect then just make sure you are on the same Wi-Fi as your device it works
pretty much first time as we can see here I’m again god this is just totally
you know me I always prefer to use a Bluetooth controller but just for this
demonstration just to show you like you can do basic controls with this maybe
for NES or some of the basic consoles otherwise you can use a virtual control
on your phone but what I definitely recommend is getting a Bluetooth control
like this all right let’s see how Teddy UK drives all right he’s lost in the
home run but can I overtake these guys yes he can
now let’s see if I can do it jump yeah I can alright let’s pick up something or
doing anything alright but we can see guys in terms of performance that’s
performing pretty pretty well I’m not really seeing any frame drops that’s
actually running pretty smoothly let me give you guys a quick summary about the
different settings and controls on this application so in the home soon you can
see some of the popular games right now you also have a ranking section a new
section and also a search now the ranking will basically show you the top
games across all platforms so all consoles all arcades and we can see what
form right there and we can see this is an arcade game this is Snares
you’ve got more arcade you’ve got Mega Drive so it’s very easy to see what
format these games are in and of course if you want to play any of them let’s
say for example want to play a Mega Drive game let’s click on that I mean I
remember started was actually a great game so let’s click on download that’s
now downloading and I mean I don’t you know sound like a broken record but just
it’s kind of like ease just you know finding games browsing games clicking on
one button and it’s ready to go without any kind of configuring without any kind
of tweaking downloading roms downloading barse is downloading config files is
again why do you field essentially a fantastic application and for most of
you it really is the one to go for before we click on launch let me now
pair of my Bluetooth controller again so again this is the game Sergi 4s and we
start that up the reason why I always recommend it is because it works on all
platforms all my hundred boxes it works first time it has rumble pack it’s just
very very reliable when it works really well let’s click on launch Alex that’s
working absolutely fine it looks really good sounds really good playability is
awesome and that’s working fine on our 4k first day I was in rankings then you
got the latest this will show you the latest roms I’ve been added to a happy
kid let’s click on that so again this is across all platforms these are some of
the newest games that are being shared that we can then click on and play you
got some games there you got some because of
custom games there’s a lots of different stuff in here for you to look at and
again anything you want to play one click click on download and you’re good
to go gets back out there then you have the search which I did demonstrate the
beginning so this would like to find any games are you looking for so if there is
a particular game like let’s try Sonic okay so you can see lots of Sonic game
so if you wanna here’s a Dreamcast one you got Mega Drive Mega Drive then you
have topics this is basically collections of games so obviously
something stuff I can’t read but if you’re going to all topics we can see we
have a collection of you know contra games we have Street Fighter we have
Dragon Ball so it’s basically a way of grouping up games that they’ve done in
this application just back after and then you have categories the categories
really is the type of consoles or in retro art you would say the cause that
you want to play so you’ve got PSP or n64 Dreamcast Mega Drive Super Famicom
or snares arcade then you also have the genre of game so let say for example I’m
looking for just fighting games only across all platforms I can click on that
and this will then show me fighting games which are you know cross arcade or
cross mega drive across different platforms so it’s another way you can
basically find the type of game that you want to play let’s back out there now in
manage you’ve got some of the options here so here for example you can use
uninstall because the only way you can actually remove a game from here is to
go into the uninstall game options and if I go into that now let’s say for
example I don’t want to play this anymore I can click on this game and
click on uninstall so this the best I can remove the games that you would’ve
downloaded onto your device goes back out there now the storage device
unfortunately a fire stick there’s no way for you to actually change the
default storage location so even if I use an OTG cable and plug in a USB stick
honestly changed the storage of happy chicks or downloads onto the USB Drive
however on an Android device you can do this on your Android TV box or your you
know and video show order your Xiaomi me box any other Android device we have
access to external storage you can click on this see here we get no suitable
storage but your device you’ll be able to actually say aren’t download roms
onto my USB Drive want to download roms onto my external hard drive so you can
do that on your devices unfortunately we can’t do that on the 4k fire stick and
lastly you have my game so all of the games that you download and install will
actually appear in this list here so over time you can actually get
massive library of games that you downloaded so you don’t have to look for
games search games all the stuff you regularly play will appear in my games
and you can access any game that you want so for example if I want to play a
Streets of Rage let’s click on that and click on launch let’s get my controller
and here we go we are now playing Streets of Rage on our 4k fire stick I
do actually think that releases games separately to buy on an Amazon device
obviously this game we’re playing at the moment socially totally free so let’s
see if it can be of some bad guys take that knee to the face huh ok that’s why
it’s looking good well that’s all for this video guys many thanks for watching
and I really do appreciate you watching till the end so if you did find this
video useful then do give it a thumbs up if you want to see more content like

  1. Awesome video brother TDUK. Will have to check it out. Been a while since I played some of those games. Keep the videos coming. Hope you and your family have an awesome weekend

  2. When I seen the title, I kept saying to myself, please don't say happy chick please don't say happy chick lol.. Then, you said happy chick 🤣😂😂🤣

  3. Won't download on my s9 turned the security setting to allow and still won't install any ideas why, or how to fix? Cheers for all your videos!

  4. Hey I notice you also have Chinese android tv box h96 something like that, so please can you tell you should I buy top model of h96? Or fire TV 4k ? Which one have better performance overall…. for emulators and streaming

  5. Love it my guy! Best tech support out there! Any thoughts on doing a video on side loading games on the full version? Still trying to play NFL 2k…was able to run on my phone with Reicast but wouldn't recognize the toggle on my controller and that's the main function of the game 😥

  6. GM tduk great video as always I just two questions.
    1) where did you purchase your bluetooth game controller?
    2) I noticed you have kodi on your 4k stick, which build do you use?

  7. DOC! You da Best! I do not play games BUT my 11 year old son who is a gamer on all platforms will give a Father of the year award to me!!!

  8. Has this improved much in the last couple years? The interface looks new, but it was buggy back in the day. Also people need to know they need storage space on thier firestick or android box.

  9. Quick question you never mentioned if we have to set up the controller only once or every time we download a game ? thanks in advanced and keep up the great work!!!!! waiting for reply

  10. What I’m I doing wrong every time I try play retro games on my Nvidia Shield with the Nvidia game remote I control everything until the game comes on then I can’t control the game and the game plays on it’s own somebody help me please

  11. Bro!! I'm so excited!! It's just worked fine to my Nvdia Shield!!! No needed to turn on nothing etc but I'll probably had do these things before once so i didn't needed to do repeat them.. Just one thing… Alot of big titles are missing i think like sega's title with the MJ as a hero!! I cant remember the game's name but it was pretty amazing!! Plus as a retro gaming app don't have Galaga, the old good legentary Galaga and some others..But yeah I'm pretty excited about it i already spend so many hours playing and remembering with it!!

  12. so i noticed that the Android version has some titles that aren't on the TV version; does the TV version get regular updates as well?

  13. They are blocked in America I don't know who is telling you that this actually works but happy chick has been dead for a long time

  14. I did download the NetFlix for android to my mobile also goes well but i couldn't download the HappyChick.. Why's that,
    what i did wrong??

  15. When I try to access your site via downloader it says "The page you are trying to access is restricted" I am using a Nvidia Shield.

  16. Hi doc, for the controller. I have my bluetooth controller, I cant use my bluetooth controller in Player 1. Please help. Thanks

  17. Hi Doc great video channel.. Is there any reason on nvidia shield I cant use the original game controller in happy chick app.. Its connected and works fine externally?

  18. I've read a lot of comments from Reddit that this is Malware essentially that mines your data, furthermore the emulators are stolen from other, reputable places that people have worked hard on developing them over the years. For the sake of convenience people shouldn't just bypass all security measures and serve themselves on a plate to the Chinese.

    Side note, RetroArch really isn't that difficult to setup and ROMs aren't that hard to source without malware attached to them, in addition, there are other great solutions out there like RetroX which has a super user friendly GUI (albeit the new payment structure isn't as great as it previously was) and is safe to use.

    Personally, I wouldn't touch this apk but each to their own.

  19. I’m using an Xbox controller and it works good just the player I’m using like Mario etc…keep shifting to the right how do I stop this

  20. I recently got an XBOX One controller, however I too…. am having the character shift right when I'm playing a game on the firestick. 🙁

  21. Is there a way to change the download path to external HDD on the Nvidia shield? I really don't want to make my external into internal storage. I try to do so with the Tv version of Happy Chick, but it won't see the drive.

  22. Yes thank you I'm not to bad when it comes to teck stuff but takes me awhile to fighuer it out but this is cats ass thanks you rock TDUK

  23. I can’t configur my controller I have Nvidia shield tv and I have the original controller it won’t identified from happy chick …and the version is not recognising my hdd I tried everything

  24. I am having a huge problem that no one seems to have the answer for. Every time I try to download a game, it gives me an “insufficient storage” message, even though I have 600-800 MB of storage space on my firestick and am trying to install a game that is .34 MB. Can someone tell me what the heck is going on?? It worked for the very first couple games I tried to download, but now it won’t even re-download those two games after I deleted them. Very frustrating.
