Very slow and high CPU consuming

I am running the game in a MacBook Air

- Processor: 1,6 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5

- Graphics:  Intel UHD Graphics 617 1536 MB

(I know it is not the best game machine but I have been playing high graphics demand games on it)

And it runs very slow, and after some minutes CPU starts burning  and I just have to shut it down.

I have tried to find graphics configuration but I haven't found any.

Also it is not possible for me to quit the game, I have to "Force quit" it.

Hope this feedback helps



Hi @d2clon,

That's a lower-end computer, but I bet you can still get it running. When launching Wooden Nickel, hold down the Option key, and you'll be presented with a graphics configuration dialog. Try lowering the resolution and the anti-aliasing settings, that should help. Regarding quitting the game, Command-Q will close it at any time.

Wooden Nickel's visual simplicity is deceptive—the game is made up of vector graphics that have been converted to meshes, which results in a more CPU-intensive game than would traditional sprite-based graphics. The upside is that it's resolution independent and takes  up far less disk space.

Hope this helps!
