I'm playing Pathfinder Adventures on two different tablets, an iPad Air 2 and a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro, and I noticed that on both of these tablets my battery power drains rather quickly when playing this game. The Lenovo is also getting rather hot in the process.

 

Am I just imagining things or is Pathfinder Adventures using more power than other games? I'm a bit surprised because the graphics are mostly 2D. Is it because of the Unity engine?

That also happens on both of my devices.  This is evidently a processor-heavy game.  I mentioned this in a thread where someone was voting for animated graphics on cards, and I said, "My tablet is working hard enough as it IS..."

It may Also be reason to some game crashes. When the tablet overheat, it can cause some lockdowns.

Yeah, love the game, but it's quite the beast. Which is weird considering it is not an action game. I have a Motorola Moto E (2nd) and I can't play more than 2-3 hours without recharging.
