Bug Description

This was seen on Samsung Galaxy Ace on Android 2.3.3.

Steps taken:

1. Started 'Winter Tale' and 'The Vestibule' for Android;
2. Played until either there was a scene change or a sprite appeared on screen.


It appears to be the case that whenever there is a simple transition some horizontal lines/artifacts will show on screen. I played Winter Tale both on Windows and Android and didn't see this problem on sprites or on scene changes there. This happens all the time, in different degrees (the lines are sometimes much more noticeable and take up a significant part of the screen). I tried taking a screenshot of the problem but I couldn't find a reliable and fast enough application to manage to do so. I noticed this in particular when fading to and from black, but because I haven't written the games myself I don't know whether it's actually a Solid black or whether it's just an empty scene.

If this is another feature that can't be supported on Android, at the very least it would be good to modify the documentation to clarify that to the users.

If you think it could help I can pass you/email you the APK of 'The Vestibule' (which is still in the testing phase) as I got the permission to do so from the author.
