    I noticed this game went on sale to free from 99c and I wanted it so I go it.

    It is a fun game but I am wondering if anyone else has the same issue I seem to be having?

    When I play this game only, my battery drains quick and the phone gets warm.

    Anyone else?

    Thanks, we will check it out.

    Thank you for checking out our game. We hope that you will enjoy playing it. Don't forget to check out the online leaderboards within the game and at http://www.f84games.com/railroad.

    We will definitely look into ways that we can reduce battery usage and get it fixed in the next update. Thanks for the info!

    Wow that didn't take long. I'm glad I got it while it was free.

    Frank,

    Does this mean that you are admitting there is a battery issue or are you just taking my word for it?

    And for the others, it was free all day yesterday.
    It was free all day yesterday.

    Rat-Boy, I haven't experienced this since the iPhone I use is plugged in 24/7 with some crazy case. I've looked into it a little and I see a few things that would cause a large amount of unneeded CPU usage in the main game loop, which leads to extra battery usage.

    We will definitely get this fix and a few other tweaks in our next update and also for our next game, which we are hoping to upload today!

    Thanks again.

    Ah...

    Thanks a lot Frank!

    I just love developers that actually talk to us on these forums or their native forums! :D

    Rat boy, you have an rss feeder that feeds exactly what? When free apps come out or threads on here? I'm confused but interested.
