does anyone in here play using the ios version? i don't want to jump to conclusions about anything, but i've had the game since the first day of the soft launch; the worldwide release on ios runs basically identically to the way it was before except for the ads

speaking of ads it seems like they removed them on the ios version? i can't use them for continues and i haven't seen one at all since last night

Does anyone know where I could possibly find a list of Andrioid phones that this game works for (as in, minimal lag/crashes)? I've been trying to play this on my Xperia Play (which the game is compatible with, apparently) but it just crashes every time it reaches the first loading screen. Thing is, before the update (1.1.1) came out, I could at least reach the 'Enter Your Name' screen, but now it won't even go that far. Is it just a problem with my phone?

After so many people experienced heat issues on their phones, i decided to analyze the HTTP traffic the game was requesting for ads, as that can cause excessive battery drain and heat generation. I was surprised to see that so many requests were made in such a short amount of time, these were all made in one run that i played for a period of 5 minutes. No wonder why there is excessive amounts of heat generated and the battery being drained. 

 

I don't know how to upload images onto a post like this, but here are the two links to the pictures i took.

Not sure I fully understand this post but...

In simple terms. The adverts are one of the main causes for the poor performance?

Also are these requests happening all the time whilst the game is playing? And can anyone else verify these results or tell us how to test this ourselves?

I set up a Proxy server on my desktop, which allowed me to monitor the traffic from the app. All of these requests were made during a run, so yes that would cause performance issues. I currently have over 300 requests listed on my computer, so yes it is constant and never stops, which would cause all the stuttering, heat, and any other issues you could possibly think of.

I wouldn't go as far as to say it is Malware because its not malicious, but in other aspects yes it is because the app is nonstop running on your network, and if you don't have unlimited data, i would actually say not to play the game, because you could get overage charges.

Sounds like if you don't want to bother with free revives and want to improve performance, you can start it with airplane mode on? I've done that from time to time to make certain iOS games less annoying.

I also found this icon

attachicon.gifpush_icon.png

 

That icon is what pops up in the notifications bar in the Android version. When you have full revives it'll have that icon and say "Revives fully restored!" or something like that. I think push notifications aren't working in the new version, so you can't turn them on or off for the time being.
