Use Game Tools
When you’re fighting a boss, Game Tools gives you everything you need to make you victorious. You can adjust the settings so nothing distracts you from battle and you can even record the showdown.
Below are the features available in Game Tools:
No alerts during game: Mute notification sounds and display notifications for emergency alerts only.
Auto brightness lock: This prevents Auto brightness from activating while you are playing a game. That way, it won’t adjust the brightness or cause any distractions while you’re in the middle of game.
Navigation key lock: This deactivates the Navigation bar when a game is open, so you don’t accidentally touch Home or Back and then exit the app by mistake.
Screen touch lock: Pauses the game and locks the screen. Swipe to unlock the screen and return to the game.
Screenshot: Capture screenshots.
Record: Record your game session.
Settings: Access Game Tools settings.
