Optimizing Mobile Games: 8 Very Critical Tips

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sat Jun 04, 2016 5:18 pm

Hello! After going through a little bit of optimizing, my app went from 256 memory use to 132. How can I further lower this?

Would you suggest a complete resizing of all images? My average sprite size is 600x600 px reduced to 200x200 to fit 480x640 screen.

Excellent!! Are you still having trouble running your game on your device ? If so yes your sprites should be the size they are in game.

From my experience:
Don't use effects on mobile! A very simple effect applied to a small sprite could cost a few fps on an older phone. Ten sprites with this effect - and the fps can drop down to unusable numbers.
Blend modes with "Force own texture" set on the layer can also have a noticeable impact on performance.
