@Yung - typically 'every tick' events don't actually have a big performance impact. It's a common myth. See Performance Tips
for our official advice.
Also how come appMobi didn't work? Can you tell us more about what went wrong? We may be able to fix the problem otherwise.
@meapps - I'm not aware of sound effects having such a large performance impact on any platform - you should report it to Ludei if so since it's probably a bug (there's no reason playing sound should slow it down that much)
