Hi I need to make a game which is a collection of minigames fetched at runtime from an external server. So can myapp.apk load mod.pck at runtime? Is it possible on IOS as it enforces AOT compilation?

Mobile app stores' policies don't allow downloading code at run-time. Since minigames fetched from a server will most likely include code, this isn't allowed.

As gdscript is interpreted language can I just download script as a text file and run it?.
I found this in google play policy:
"Likewise, an app may not download executable code (e.g. dex, JAR, .so files) from a source other than Google Play."
"This restriction does not apply to code that runs in a virtual machine and has limited access to Android APIs (such as JavaScript in a webview or browser)."
Does gdscript fall into the category of code that run in a virtual machine ?
