Ice floes disappearing, polar bears going hungry, droughts leading to watering bans in England: all because of Kairosoft’s hugely popular Android games. It’s time something was done.
On some high-end Android smartphones, Kairosoft games (like the just-released Cafe Nipponica) seem to unnecessarily over-utilize your processor, which causes rapid battery drain and heat by-production.
If your Android phone is rooted, try lowering your phone’s clock speed. Popular custom ROMs like CyanogenMod include CPU clock options right in your settings app. If you’re running a stock Android ROM or a custom ROM that doesn’t include options for CPU settings, try SetCPU (available from this XDA thread or the Android market).
I’ve found that setting my Galaxy S II to 500 MHz maximum CPU frequency runs Kairosoft games perfectly but keeps the phone from getting hot enough to take wrinkles out of your trousers, and also massively extends my battery life.
