I have a game, Chain Chronicle, that runs correctly when installed as ARM (on my phone and Andyroid) but is broken when installed as x86 (on the Nexus Player and Genymotion). It seems to be caused by broken/missing libraries. Is there a way to force it to install as ARM? I realize it will run slower, but that's better than not running at all.

Can you download the APK from APKMirror. Can select the architecture to x86, x86-64, or universal.
Nexus Player uses an Intel Atom Z3560 x86 processor. That cannot install ARM APKs on x86 platform, you can install x86 APKs instead.

I agree, using apkmirror or dumping the APK from your phone is the way to do this. Just disable auto-updates or resign it with a debug key.
