There's a reason for this, you know that right? Games uses alot of ram and android clears inactive apps to use their ram for other things. A game like Subway Surfers uses 134-150MB ram.

Anyway, what you can try is get the xposed module "app settings". You can apply all kinds of settings to apps with this module, one of them being making apps "resident", i.e. not close - unless the "quit" function of the app is being used I guess.

I just tried it out, seems to work.

Its normal really.. sometimes you'd expect these 2GB devices to hold apps in memory longer before killing them but I guess not. You can also adjust your minfree values, which are the values that controls when to kill off apps etc. But the "resident" function of "app settings" seems to do a good job keeping apps in memory. It could be anything, like a background app you never want to be killed, like Tasker.

God bless xposed!
