    just lower your brightness, or turn off push, and or turn off wifi and it will extend the battery so you dont have to worry about it running out so fast

    i forgot about trism, i think there was a reason why i deleted it, oh thats right..i got bored of it..-haha...to each their own

    Well yes it can drain it after playing for a long time, just like any game.
    It probably drains it slightly faster than other games in the same genre though, but idk

    I haven't played bejeweled or tetris for long periods of time, so I can't compare.

    I have my screen dimmed to half way, and I don't experience too bad of battery drain....
    It's not like omg 5 min and it's dead. It lasts a long time still....I can play for an hour or two atleast before I notice it's super low...

    I don't see how Trism could drain your battery faster than like HoS or BIA or Katamari etc.. i think the answer is if you think you've got some time to dedicate to a game, just go into settings and throw on Airplane mode and lower brightness to 50% and you're fine!

    I didn't think this was worth an extra thread, so I'm slightly hi-jacking this older one. My question is this: Is there a way to manually set the direction in which the replenishing triangles will slide onto the field after a match in the full version or is it always restricted to using the accelerometer?

    I really like the game mechanics which I've seen in the Lite version, but the whole tilt iPod Touch to such and such angle after almost every match is a big turn-off for me. Am I the only one who is of that opinion?

    I figured as much, but it was worth checking up on. Oh well. One lost sale. =/
