    Don't know which tags its comes under! User retention is low as app size is too high for simple graphics and music (both of these are optimized).
    On building for android getting 13 mb included dll and my apk also contains some System.xml.dll which is only used in Editor folder. This is build report report

    Textures 3.7 mb 14.8%
    Meshes 0.0 kb 0.0%
    Animations 0.0 kb 0.0%
    Sounds 1.5 mb 6.0%
    Shaders 231.7 kb 0.9%
    Other Assets 1.3 mb 5.1%
    Levels 379.7 kb 1.5%
    Scripts 3.0 mb 12.0%
    Included DLLs 13.1 mb 52.0%
    File headers 2.0 mb 7.8%
    Total User Assets 25.3 mb 100.0%
    Complete build size 113.3 mb

    These are packages used in my game so here are stats for blank project with imported packages and tweaked building settings.

    Stats [Note, empty project is not tested and is for only apk size.]

    maybe you left some thing in Resource, streamingasset or plugins folder? these magic folder of Unity are usually source of file size problem.
    Try search in the project window to discover those wicked magic folder hidden in deep tree

    In the table near end, why removing editor folder decreases by apk size. I will check those magic folders too.

    One reason could be because that's where the build postprocessors for those plugins live, which would mean that by removing them you will no longer get all the required assets for those plugins bundled into your .apk.

    Also, I keep getting constantly surprised by the random things that keep pulling System.Xml in as an annoying indirect dependency...
