    he rpg maker friends,
    can I ask your honest opinion, I tested my RPG maker game on mobile for the first time, and since my resolution is 1280x720 I'm afraid it appears quite small.

    Could you check out the screenshot on your phone. Do you think the graphics and text are too small for a mobile game? Or do you think it's ok? How would you change it?

    you need to provide a bit more info on mobile,
    there are many kinds and many use different size.

    What kind of mobile do you use?
    and which iphone/android is it compatable the most? so its best to test those phones
    on their resolution :)

    Thank you for your response @ShadowDragon .

    hmmm it should work on as many different phones as possible since I'd like to share the game.

    But when I tested it on my phone (1080x2280), I was wondering if the text might be too small.

    Here's the web-based version in case you'd want to check it on mobile (though it's very buggy, but for testing it's maybe faster than installing the whole app)

    From the few mobile games with dialogue I've played, their textboxes cover one end of the screen to the other and use font at least twice the size of this here. I'd aim for at least something the size of this.

    Hello @Milennin thank you, that's very helpful. So I'll make the text definitely bigger.

    What about the tiles and characters though? Would you say this size is ok?

    that one gives an error of parallax Shibuya.png

    but the I have other way to test it on multiple devices at once.
    so some of them is small, but readable.

    The layout otherwise is nice. but more doable on a tablet, laptop or pc would be a better aim if you keep this layout.
    (thats my opinion).

    People that can see good can this be readable, people with less vision have a harder time.
    not all people can read tiny letters than some can (which I can read small).

    So you mmight to think the best course of action though. Keep in mind that Tablet also uses APK or most of them :)

    thank you, that's extremely helpful.

    I'd like to make a desktop/pc game, but I'm afraid everybody prefers playing games on mobile these days?

    I think during breaks or in train, maybe yes, at home maybe on pc/laptop.

    but its hard to know, I play games best on pc while my mobile cant handle big games.
    that especially i dont have the amount ram to run it.
