Today has been a day of “that should have been obvious” moments. First, I was wondering why Neil Rajah was no longer on the ‘top new free’ list, and whether the fact that I changed its name with the last update had anything to do with it. Turns out, it was a coincidence, because I also crossed the 30-day anniversary of the original release, and that’s how long an app stays in any of the ‘new’ lists.
There was another change I made with the latest update – I removed support for the ‘small’ screen size. I figured these would mostly be older devices that wouldn’t run the game very well, and disabling support would reduce the chance of bad reviews. I know the game works at those resolutions, I’ve tested many width/height combinations with the desktop build to make sure that everything scales properly. But it seemed like a good idea to not support low-end phones.
