I tried "World of Castles" on my Android test device for the first time, yesterday.

.. Uhoh!!


"Out of Memory" was the main warning.
And I couldn't quite figure out where it was happening, since the game doesn't actually use anything more than the regularly sized "Grid[]" array which has been in all my games since about 2010 or so.

About 3 or 4 hours later, I'd finally managed to track down most of the "Out of Memory" issues to the uncrunching function, which I'd used to compress the map data. I tried to fix it, but in the end I found it easier just to leave the entire uncompressed world in the game, rather than struggle to fix it!
The .apk and Win.exe both shot up by another 500 or so Kb..
Bah, humbug!

Now, thankfully, the game seems to be working on the Archos Gamepad 2. I've yet to test it on the Razer/OUYA, but I'm hopeful that it won't have any problems on there.
In general, if something works on the Gamepad, it's likely to work elsewhere, too.

Move, rat! Move!!


The memory failed.
Too much in it's mind.
I hope that I fixed it.
Or the game lags behind.
