Boosteroid is a cloud gaming platform located in Romania and covers most of Europe as of 2020. We classify Boosteroid as a middleware cloud gaming platform. This means that they will access and play games from third-party gaming digital distribution services like Steam and Origin to stream the game to you instead of downloading the games you own to your PC to play. This is similar to services like GeForce Now and Vortex. They don’t have servers in the US as of now, but they are expanding their services due to their partnership with Microsoft. We are going to show you how to play Boosteroid on an Android device.
One of the great things about Boosteroid is that you do not need an app to play their games. It is all browser based like Stadia. You actually need an account and subscription to play. So, if you are looking on how to get started with Boosteroid, check the link out above to see how to get started.
Logging into Boosteroid on Android
If you have already signed up with an account and paid for a subscription with Boosteroid, all you need to do is go to the Boosteroid website on a browser and sign in with your credentials.
Once you are logged in, you will be presented with the dashboard. Choose a game from the “My Games” tab or one of the other game library tabs. I am going to scroll down and start playing Destiny 2 for this example.
Click on the game and hit the Play button to get it started. It will warn you not to adjust the game settings once in game but sometimes certain basic settings need to be adjusted so be aware of this. Also, note what it is saying here. This will help you get out of the game, use the in-game keyboard and also the in-game controller by hitting the D-pad. Lastly, feel free to tap the screen when it tells you to if you want to activate sound.
Logging into Third Party Game
Now we are going to login to Steam by typing in our credentials with the in-game keyboard. Hit the keyboard icon to accomplish this. Once signed in to Steam or any other third-party app, hit the accept button, to get your game started.
You’ll notice that I am not playing fullscreen. Feel free to hit the fullscreen button in between the keyboard and “X” buttons at the top right to play your game in fullscreen mode.
Playing on the In-Game Controller
Once you start playing, and you don’t have a controller connected, you can use the in-game controller by hitting the D-pad at the top right. In my experience, the in-game controller is handy but not ideal for a solid experience. Use a Bluetooth controller connected to your Android device to play optimally. I am using an Xbox controller here.
Remember that Boosteroid servers are overseas, miles away from the US. Combine the controller lag from the Romanian servers and the chunkiness of the in-game controller, playing this way is doable but not the best by any means. Your response time will be slow and with fast reacting games like Sonic or any other racing game, your input will be late in-game.
Exiting a Boosteroid Game on Android
Once you are finished play a game, hit the “x” in the corner. It will ask you to confirm the game termination and hit “End Session” to exit. It will then return you back to the dashboard where you can choose another game or leave altogether.
