This video is dated december 2012 (!!!)... it shows an early implementation of the accelerometer driven platform engine that i'm using for clyde and it's running on a samsung galaxy ace (800 Mhz single core with 384Mb ram).
Now that the game has gained complexity it can't run anymore like this on a such weak device but it's still playable on 3 years old devices like the samsung galaxy s advance (basically 2.5 generations before the current samsung flagship phone).

What is a regular phone to you?

Because Galaxy S3 and HTC OneX is pretty dominant in android markets. Likewise iPhone 4 is the bulk of the market, and newer iPhone 5 is replacing older iPhone 3 over time.

So, since my upcoming games wont have adds but only IAP, I focus on 512+ MB RAM phones. I just assume that everyone who still has a phone below 512 RAM is either not interested in playing on their phone, or wont spend any money on IAP.

Since Cocoonjs has great overall performance, but bad RAM management, I think the real question here is, how much RAM can my game occupy, before I start loosing the market share, I am interested in.

Therefore, why don't we collect real life phone data, where people state how much free RAM a:
1. 128 RAM phone has
2. 256 RAM phone has
etc etc

Then we can combine:
- Free ram per phone generation
- market share of phone generation
- how much ram can my game use before i start loosing such and such % market share
Free Android game: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... VSMrMonkey

"Seven Birds VS Mr. Monkey" is a simple yet fun game.

Mr. Monkey is being attacked by birds and without a way to escape all hope seems lost. But if you think Mr. Monkey goes down that easily you are mistaken!

Help Mr. Monkey to upgrade his skills, get special attacks and show these birds who's the boss!

@Allchix: my game uses ~400mb due to CocoonJS loading every asset into memory instead of doing layout by layout. As such i am limited to 1gb ram phones.

Generally a safe assumption is 1/2 the total device ram as a limit.

Thats the biggest problem with CocoonJS as I see it.
