11 Bit Studios is getting close to releasing their upcoming tower offense game Anomaly 2 and in order to ensure that the game runs smoothly on as many devices as possible, the company has developed a new benchmarking app and is offering it up to everyone for free in order to help test and prepare the game for launch.
Basically what this benchmarking app does is run a series of tests to see whether or not your phone's hardware (CPU, GPU etc) can handle the game. Once the app is done running the tests and showing you the results, it will also send the test data to 11 Bit Studios where they will use the information gathered to better optimize the game for as many devices as possible.
They are doing this because it is the easiest way to find out what devices can handle the graphically intensive Anomaly 2 game as well as getting the fans of the franchise involved in testing. This goes for both single-player and multiplayer content.
If you're up for lending a helping hand, you can read further details about all of this on the official post by 11 Bit Studios. You can download the app off of Google Play for free.
