Pokemon GO developer Niantic has introduced a delightful new game, full of of adorable creatures, called Peridot. Similar to the '90s Tamagotchi toys, Peridot serves as a pet simulator that allows you to nurture and care for a creature called a Dot. This new game is quite exciting, but some technical issues have turned it into a nightmare for Pokemon GO players!

Peridot players have voiced their concerns about the significant lag that results in the game running at less than 10 frames per second. Moreover, there have been reports of the app causing excessive overheating and battery drain on users' phones. Resultantly, several fans of Niantic have even taken the drastic step of uninstalling the app.
