No. It’s NOT “right at home on Playstation Mobile,” Paul. You want to know why? The game, fairly simplistic and 2D, can’t even run at a steady 30fps! On the 3DS, by all accounts a far less powerful system, Little Acorns runs at a perfect 60fps, in both 2D and with 3D activated.

How could PSM have so many performance issues? How do you expect us to get excited about PSM games when they are INCAPABLE of running well? Little Acorns should have been an absolute breeze to get running at 60fps, but no, instead we’re getting 20-30fps framerate.

@5 You 1080p 60FPS guys are hilarious.

+ vanwinkle on August 7th, 2013 at 9:05 am said:

@FriedConsole. ARE YOU KIDDING? Please, tell me you are. A 2D platformer, especially one this simple, should be 60fps. This is established with 2D platformers. This is not a tech matter. This is a responsiveness issue. You’re acting like I’m talking about some graphics-intensive 3D game or something. Are you suggesting performance is not important? Are you saying we should be happy with sub-30fps performance in a 2D platformer on our high-tech handheld? Especially when it’s far less powerful rival runs the game at a perfect 60fps.

Any chance trophies are ever going to make it to PSM?

@5, OMG, as long as it controls well, who cares? I bought Little Acorns and there is no problem at all playing the game. Doesn’t WipEout 2048 run at 30fps? I had no issues playing that game either. 60fps is great, but not every single game needs it.

Updates
Word Blocked by Quirkat ($1.99)

Does that mean the game got a patch or something?

    It does, I’m not exactly sure what the update is at this time. But yes, that’s what’s going on there.

I’m aware there are limitations to this, but I kinda wish ps mobile was available for laptops/pc as well.

Nice looking game though.

When problems overwhelm us and sadness smothers us, where do we find the will and the courage to continue? The answer may come from the caring voice of a friend, a chance encounter with a book, or from a personal faith. For Janet, help came from her faith, but it also came from a squirrel. Shortly after her divorce, Janet lost her father. Then she lost her job. She had mounting money problems. But Janet not only survived, she worked her way out of despondency and now she says “Life is good again.” How could this happen? She told me late one Autumn day when she was at her lowest, she watched a squirrel storing up nuts for the winter. One at a time, he would take them to the nest. She thought, “If that squirrel can take care of himself with a harsh winter coming on, so can I.” Once I broke my problems into small pieces I was able to carry them, just like those acorns, one at a time.

PS Mobile always have to check online when you launch or are playing the games on PS Vita?
If yes, the game looks fun but I’ll not buy it…

PS Mobile should fuse into the PS APP SONY is releasing when the PS4 hits.

@vanwinkle

Are you goofy or something? Playstation Mobile is not only on PSVita? And yes, I chose goofy because no other word I would use to explain you is appropriate on these forums.

There are other devices they have to keep in mind, like the ANDROID ones that have the playstation mobile app. No, not all of them can possibly have 60fps.

IF this were a PSVITA game then I would agree that it DOES make a difference. That not being the case, you sir /ma’am are a FOOL.

MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA

I’m sure that should be ‘Shuttle Quest 2000′ and not ‘Space Quest 2000′.

Oh, dead on arrival PS Mobile again.
Sony needs to improve minis service, add trophies, leader-boards instead of wasting time on PSM.

+ Oisterboy on August 8th, 2013 at 12:58 pm said:

I’d be interested in this more than the zero I’m interested in it now if it had trophies. Its not just me either. Even just a few bronzes. Same reason I’d never pay for minis. I’m not that obsessed with trophies but playing a game without them just doesn’t seem right anymore.
