Genshin Impact is taking the world by storm right now. The BOTW-inspired graphics with some anime spice and the hack and slash gameplay combination work really well. Moreover, Genshin Impact is available for both mobile and PC. The game also supports cross-platform play. It seems like miHoYo is really aiming to go all-in on this.

The way I see it and play it, Genshin Impact is quite well-optimized for mobile devices. The controls and UI are simple yet effective and beautiful. However, it also has a downside. When I play it on mobile devices, the game sometimes lags or even force close. Hopefully, this issue could be resolved in the version 1.1 update on November 13.

Remember, you can also play the game on PC to get better performance and experience. You can check out this page if you want to know how to install it on PC.
