Hello guys!

What's the size of your game? I have a very simple game with simple graphics and 100+ events and the size of apk is around 3MB (Intel XDK for Android) but when I export with Crosswalk, the size is 20MB. Why? How do you fix this?

Crosswalk bundles the entire Chromium browser engine for Android 4.x compatibility, which adds about 17mb. If you target Android 5.0+ only, you can do without it, which reduces the size of the APK.

But my game works slow without it and I don't know what to to about it.

I just know I'm gonna get shot down for this. Perhaps try Cocoon's Canvas+? I think it only adds 6MB and Canvas+ is fast. Although exporting through this option can have its trial and errors.

@sivricmarijan what @grigrizljac said somewhere in the 20something mb range sounds about right my freefallbird (for android only... i have no ios version yet) is about 25mb. It could easily just be 5-7 mb if it wasn't for the whole crosswalk story.

Does anyone know, is it possible in Google Play to have 1 .apk file (Crosswalk) for android 4 and 1 (without Crosswalk) for Android 5 and newer?
