Performance

Bioshot VR runs on various Android devices, but the performance will depend solely on the processing power of the CPU and, when available, the device’s graphics acceleration chipset.
In general, the minimum acceptable performance of a game for a mobile device is the one where the screen refresh rate of is not less than about 30 frames per second. A desirable performance is 60+ frames per second.
Bioshot VR was tested on numerous devices and showed satisfactory performance in a large number of them. However, for devices with a very high screen resolution, the overall performance may not be satisfactory.

ATTENTION. Motion Sickness 

It is widely known in the games industry that virtual reality games and apps may cause motion sickness. One should immediately stop playing Bioshot VR if motion sickness is experienced. One also must carefully read the End-User License Agreement on game installation, especially NO WARRANTIES and NO LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES sections.
