And I didn't try the rest.

Yes that is correct. This game is based around heavy physics simulations, so after extensive testing, we decided to only allow installation on devices that would result in a playable frame rate. Unfortunately, many of the non-flagship devices are not powerful enough to run the game, so we disabled it on those devices in order to reduce frustration at a unplayable game.

We will be updating the game soon with further optimizations, so we may release it to a few more devices as performance increases soon, so be sure to check back in a bit!

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Can you be a bit more specific about system requirements? Chipset, ram, etc.

I can't specify exactly what the hard cutoff is as it is mostly from experimenting on hundreds of devices, but here are some rough guidelines for smooth gameplay:

Greater than 2gb RAM
Processor Equivalent to or more powerful than Qualcomm Snapdragon 810/808 (Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X)

Devices that generally fall within this spec are flagship devices from up to 2-3 years ago. Here is a brief list of popular devices that will run it well. Please note that we allow installations on weaker devices, but there will be a suboptimal experience. Even weaker devices that 100% will not be able to run it have been disabled from being installed on.

We only have to do this because Caterpillage depends on an advanced and CPU intensive physics system that, until now, have only been available on desktop games. We brought a desktop class physics experience to a mobile platform, which means that older devices will unfortunately not be a good fit.


Please note that this list is not exhaustive but only represents devices that we recommend.

LG V20
Pixel
ZTE Axon 7
Zenfone3 Deluxe Special
S7
LG G5
HTC 10
OnePlus 3
Moto Z and Moto Z Force
LeEco Le Pro 3 Elite
LeEco Leeco Le Max 2
Lenovo ZUK Z2 Pro
XiaoMi Mi5
Sony Xperia X Performance
Nubia Z11
HP Elite x3
Sony Xperia XZ
Blackberry DTEK60
LG Q8
Shar Aquos P1
Xiaomi Mi Note 2
Xiaomi Mi5s
Xiaomi Mi MIX
OnePlus 3T
LG G6
HTC U Ultra
Asus Zenfone AR
LG G5
Moto Z Droid
Moto Z Force Droid
Galaxy Tab S3

Please let me know if you have any more questions and we are glad to assist!

Caterpillage Battles Released!

Thanks everyone on here for reporting bugs and suggestions. We have just pushed our first major update: Battles!

This is an online PVP 1v1 mode where you can fight others and spawn in armies to help!

BATTLES:

Fight other players online in a multiplayer spectacle in the Battles gamemode.
  • Fast paced fights
  • Spawn in your own army
  • Fight for resources
  • Develop strategies to defeat your opponent
  • 1v1 matches
  • Global rankings and leaderboards
  • Reach rank 1!

In Battles, you face an enemy caterpillar in a fight to the death. Soldiers, tanks, Helipigs and Generals have come to your aid! Spawn in allied units to help you take down your opponent. But beware: your enemy will have their own army to counter.

Craft strategies to defeat stronger and stronger enemies as you climb towards the top of the global leaderboards. Gain or lose trophies after each battle to know who is the most powerful caterpillar.

Please continue to leave feedback and we will gladly develop to meet them!
