    Angry 'Punch Quest' runs constantly on the background once started

    Android version of Punch Quest runs constantly on the background and uses nearly 100 Mbits of RAM. After playing I have to kill the process manually or my battery will drain in next to no time. This should be fixed ASAP!

    P.S. Please note I'm using the Finnish version of Android.

    The fact that it remains open in the background doesn't necessarily cause any problems, unless you actually notice problems with performance. Remember that Android likes to keep RAM somewhat full of open apps, to allow for quick app switching or opening. If you play Punch Quest a lot, it is likely keeping it open in the background in case you open it again soon. See these articles for more details:

    If it is causing problems, email the developer: support+android@noodlecake.com

    Punch Quest was the biggest battery drain on my phone. It had used around 50% of the power when I left it running to the background overnight. I now that RAM usage is unessential in the modern Android environment.
    I contacted the developer a week ago.

    And yes, I play Punch Quest a lot

    Was it keeping the phone awake? If it syncs data a lot, it might not use as much battery if you turn Wi-Fi and mobile data off overnight.
