This is a really enthralling story, I'm loving every minute.. which makes it that much more FRUSTRATING that I'm stuck on ep3. A snap life notification comes in from BDrilla and when I click on it, I just get taken to a load screen that never goes away. I've done everything I can think to do, even restarting my tablet, but the issue persists. PLEASE fix this so I can keep playing!! Also, there is no sound.

The game for the most part was great. Very interactive and keeps you interested. Ads are not intrusive. It does take quite a bit to load! I have noticed throughout gameplay there are what appear to be major glitches. Now that I am in S1:Episode 5, I can no longer progress. Nothing but a blank screen after the loading screen (that now won't load). It is just stuck on that screen. Please fix this and I will rate 5 stars! It was pretty fun when it was working!

Hi Jessica, so glad you enjoyed our app but really sorry to hear about your glitch in Episode 5. This problem has been reported before and we're working on a fix for the new update.

such a good and fun game! Unfortunately, I cannot get past episode 3, I've replayed ep 2 a few times now and there is always a glitch in Ep3 that forces me to stop. Once, all my messages and ability to message in chat disappeared, and another time I was not able to select the characters with their locations off in the map section. I really love the game, and the writing and acting is so believable compared to similar games. I hope this can be fixed so i can up my rating!
