I LOVE this game, but don't play it mobile. This app is horrendously glitchy, and often doesn't sync properly. I've had a number of times where the app freezes or gets indefinitely hung up in loading. This is a poor way to experience the game. Google either "Fallen London" or "Echo Bazaar" (same thing will come up) and play this in a browser.
Was enjoying this but since the election thing started I can't do anything. Says I need to add people to be able to participate but apparently there isn't a single person I can add to play against, n the few people it found, it then told me they weren't eligible. Killed the game for me. Uninstalling
6 months later: still very happy! And caved to the subscription, but stand by my statement. I play and love its sister game, Sunless Sea, and was excited for the opportunity to back Sunless Skies, which I eagerly await. I'm not experiencing any issue with the election, and the game is currently in a content rework and expansion push, oh boy! The quite low limit of 20 turns/1 turn every 10min is tooth-gritting, and I don't feel the subscription offers quite enough, but hot damn, I love this game. I love it so much. The overwrought storytelling does a masterful job - it avoids feeling pretentious and is instead atmospheric and compelling.
I love fallen london, i really do. But this app is broken. If i have to close it, i have to delete and reinstall the entire app to get it working again, and even then it is a 50/50 shot as to whether ot not it'll actually work. Ive been trying to play it mobile for about 2 days at this point and I'm done. I was looking forward to taking one of my favorite browser games and being able to progress at work or while on the road, but with this app it is nearly impossible. So my recommendation? Ignore this app, play the game on your browser.
I like the game and its concept. However, every time I open it, it asks me to log in again. Afterwards, whatever progress I've made isn't saved, and I have to do things over again. This makes it a frustrating experience, unfortunately.
Might be the greatest mobile game of all time, but I'll never know because is impossible to get past the first loading screen. The only writing I've experienced in this game is "checking for content updates." This game is not playable. Give it a miss.
