You've been running on a sub-2GHz CPU in 2012?

Just saying: computers have had 2GHz CPUs as standard since 2002 or so...

Then again, that's for single core computers. Dual core computers might be a different issue.

Yeah, 2GHz isn't even standard these days..my computer's a 2009 model and it has a dual core at 3.1 GHz.

Also, this game was made in Game Maker. Regardless of how simple it may look, it requires a ton of processing power because Game Maker games are CPU hogs. Trust me, it's the program, not the game itself.

4cores w/ or w/o hyper threading (meaning 8 effective cores) is standard now.

This game can run fine on computers slower than 2 GHz. The performance problems aren't caused strictly by the clock rate.

I was very happy with my 2.9Ghz dual core until you said this.

Don't worry, dual core is "standard" as most computers you see in stores has them. Quad cores are gaining ground of course.
