    Opening the apk of one of my 2D games with Winrar I noticed that the lib folder contains two subfolders:
    armeabi-v7a
    and x86.
    They both contain three .so files.

    One of the biggest problems I found on the google play store is that 2D games, that are expected to be small and light, if made with Unity have a footprint of about 18MB (!) only made by the Unity engine, that is in my opinion responsible for a very big loss of downloads.
    As a matter of fact, all or almost all those 18MB are those two lib directories, and just removing one of them, specifically x86, would decrease that footprint by about 50%.

    Would it be possible to do it some how?
