  • I asked about the ads service. If you are not using Admob, which one are you using?

    oh sorry, im using the admob plugin and admob interestial ads, besides Crosswalk, it also works with the normal Cordova Android build and should also work with the other Cordova Export Options. Admob itself works with Android, iOS and Windows Phone 8. You can also integrate Admob into your Mopub Account and so use Admob in Cocoon build apps. hope that helps you!

    > i dont like that crosswalk makes an >50MB app out of an 500kb game, in my tests it didnt perform better on weak mobiles

    Yes, crosswalk export apk is really big. May I ask which phone you've used to test your game?

    the oldest phone i tested on is an Xperia Ray with Android 4.0x, its not perfect but playable

    it has some hikups on Lenovo Idea Tablet with 4.4.2 but most times it runs smooth (it freaks a bit if you have the blue pad and the flash bonus item activated->lots of effects and particles)

    i was told it runs ok on Samsung S3 and i saw it running perfect on Samsung S5 Mini.

    It also runs perfect on Nexus 7 2012 (but on this tablet everything seems to run perfect with Android smaller then Lollipop)

  • Asus MeMO Pad HD 7 (ME173X) The game is barely running, many lags <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_sad.gif" alt=":(" title="Sad"> but my device is far away from from a top.

    would you mind installing this small game in an 50MB demanding version if it would run smooth?

    Xperia XL Android 4.4.2

    oh thats pretty upsetting, i had not expected that

    Thank you all for testing! would like to hear more performance reports, but first i will try to optimize the game some more and provide an Crosswalk build app for testing here.

    Would you all mind reinstalling that crosswalk app and giving some response?

    here you can download the crosswalk build apks: http://fldr.de/blockbreaker-Crosswalk.201502284835.zip

    Well, I'll consider choosing the normal android build. I just don't know what's the downside of it. Must be some thing because most of the people choose crosswalk and it is terrible regarding to performance and the download size, so I have this eternal dilemma lol. Do you know why?

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

    Try Now Construct 3 users don't see these ads
  • the downside is, it runs ob webview while crosswalk apps run on built in chromium. That means its a downside if you have Android version < Lollipop because the webview is based on the Android browser in this versions and only gets updated when you update Android system. You have to try if your game needs that better browser engine tu run like you want it, for example my previous games run well on webview, but this here seems to suffer a lot from it.

    I provided an crosswalk build app in the post above, so you can directly compare performance of the two build options.

    Tested on HTC Desire 816, it's smooth except the swirl effect. Swirl effect degrades the performance.

    Thank you very much!

    Yeah it seems the swirl effect is a bit overkill, thinking of removing it.
