There are many glitches in this game. For your convenience, they will be logged here so you know they are around and you don't have to look everywhere for a potential solution. Note that a lot of these do not have solutions at this time.

If you find a new glitch, please do not hesitate to comment about it and a solution will be found as quickly as possible. If you have a possible solution for a glitch that has no solution, please share so others can fix their issues.

Always try the simple potential fixes before claiming it as a glitch. This app is quite a big app and many glitches can occur for many external reasons. If the solutions below say "no solution", please still attempt the simple potential fixes.

Heavy Lag and Freezing GlitchEdit

Problem: Your game keeps freezing and lagging, making gameplay difficult.
Solution: First, try clearing up memory space. This game is big and needs room to move around. Also if you have iOS, try turning off Documents and Data on your phone's iCloud and turning it back on. You can always backup data again and backup afterwards. More information is under simple potential fixes.

Simple Potential FixesEdit

This is a list of simple things to do that may potentially fix issues. Even if the glitch seems hopeless, still try these things.

Save Game Files (Do this First).Edit

Before tampering with anything, it's recommended that you save your game files onto your computer. Read here for more information on the process.

Close all your apps.Edit

They can take up memory space believe it or not. Also this gives the game a chance to refresh. Read here for more information on the process. If you have Android or Kindle, mimic this action.

Restart your device.Edit

As your device stays on longer, it builds up on memory. Restarting your device helps settle down the memory so it can help the game run smoother. It's also best to restart your device after big actions such as reinstall.

Reinstall your app (iOS only).Edit

If your game is saved to the iCloud, you may reinstall your game to hopefully eliminate any issues. When the message prompts you to "keep" or "remove" Game Center data, make sure to hit "keep". This way when you get back to the game, you will still have all of your data. Read here for more information on the process.

Refresh iCloud Data (iOS only).Edit

Refreshing the Documents and Data on your device may help refresh your game. The save data may be constantly piling on your data, so it's nice to clean it up and start anew. This helps a lot with freezing and lag, and other glitches. Read here for more information on the process.

Contact glu.Edit

No matter what glitch you get, I recommend reporting them to glu so that you have at least addressed the problem. The replies may be sluggish but as long as you sent it out there, they will eventually read about the problem. You can contact them via their support page here.


You can also access glu support and forum support straight from your device by tapping the Options gear in the top left-hand corner of the screen, tap on Help and tap the buttons you need.
