Performance Reports

device playable environment api fps resolution settings notes
🖥 M1: Mac mini 16GB yes Native (e.g. default for Universal Binary) Running on external 4k monitor with hidpi - runs great in retina and almost fills from top to bottom of screen without using full screen (looks good in full screen mode as well) - note this is the iOS version which is portrait mode only - haven't tried controller but mouse dragging control works fine, iOS IPA sideloaded
