I must be missing something very basic, but I can't quite find a way to limit the fps. I've made a basic puzzle game (there's very little happening other than some transition animations, you wouldn't notice 30 fps). I've enabled vsync so the cpu won't work at more than 60 fps, but is there a way to reduce it further? Are there substantial savings to be made between 60fps and 30fps on a very basic game?

Yes, by defining Debug > Settings > Fps > Force Fps to a non-zero value in the Project Settings.

Not really. Also, limiting the FPS will make input lag more noticeable, so I wouldn't recommend it. Instead, I would recommend enabling Application > Run > Low Processor Mode in the Project Settings, which only redraws the game when something has changed on screen.
