So dissapointed????

Bought this game thinking it looked awesome and when it downloaded I was so excited, but when I pushed on the app it just stuck on the loading screen forever! Spent three dollars on nothing! Please fix this?

Not working anymore

Played it two years ago. Reinstalled today, not working on iPhone 6 plus.


I just bought this game and it won't get past the first loading screen. I already redownloaded it and everything. BTW I have a iPhone 5C iOS 9

I would rate it way better

I would rate it better but it doesn't load at all for me and I use a iPhone 5c does anyone know why


Great game but if you update to iOS 9+ the game gets stuck at the loading screen. Fix this.
