@surferwithtide You can Google how to do this. Just be warned these sites usually have apps/games loaded with malware or viruses.

If a user wants to download games outside of the Google Play Store, they have the option of sideloading apps. Sideloading involves installing apps from sources other than the official app store. Please note that this method carries some risks, as it may expose users to potential security issues if they download apps from unreliable sources.

To enable sideloading on Android devices, users should follow these steps:

Go to "Settings" on the Android device.
Select "Security" or "Privacy," depending on the device.
Look for the option "Unknown sources" and toggle it on to allow installation from sources other than the Play Store.
Once sideloading is enabled, users can download APK files (Android application packages) from various sources on the internet and install them directly on their devices. However, it's crucial to be cautious and only download apps from trusted sources to avoid potential malware or other security problems.
