Pros call this optimization. It's when you assume your customers have a bad PC.

Try making a lite mode. Something with less enemies at a time, maybe, or less environmental items. Definitely skip the cutscene.

Go back over your code to see what you can combine, what you can streamline, and what you can remove completely.

It's the hallmark of a good developer when the program can be optimized to work with all kinds of computers. The makers of Duke Nukem Forever failed to do it and received complaints for it. I personally am doing it right now in an effort to make a good first impression on the app market. It takes work, but it's worth it.
