Solutions & Issues
Baseline (Widescreen) Solution & Issues

This game has anamorphic-like behaviour. The central viewing window is roughly 16:9 and does not change between aspect ratios; the non-interactive area surrounding it has varying visibility depending on the aspect ratio.

As with all Windows 8/RT apps the Windows Store version of this game only runs at the current desktop resolution and has a minimum resolution of 1024x768, so 1280x720 and 1024x640 will not work (the game refuses to launch). The web version does not have a minimum resolution. All resolutions higher than this will work for the Windows Store version, including custom resolutions (apps can use any resolution supported by Windows itself).
