Strange thing keeps happening. I made a very simple game for mobile... hardly any graphics, no music, no sound... but I kept noticing some severe slow down, and couldn't figure out why.
I pulled my game apart, and found that whenever a global variable is altered, the game pauses. Originally I had a global variable constantly being altered, but I've now changed it to once every second. Low and behold, now I get a slow down once every second.
Anyone else able to replicate this?
