Troubleshooting/Issues

Having a problem with the game? Here are fixes to try for common problems.

Game makes device run hot

At times the game might heavily use your devices's resources, making it run hot. While this is normal, if you're uncomfortable with how warm your device is getting or get any warnings from it, the best thing to do is to stop playing for a bit and let it cool down.

Game didn't fully download

This might happen if there isn't enough space on your device.

  • Android phones and tablets: Free up some space in your device and the download will continue automatically.

  • iPhones and iPads: Free up some space in your device, relaunch the app, and the download should start at the same point that it was interrupted.
