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
I've played this game in a web browser and found it to be an enjoyable game. Unfortunately I can't get past the registration screen on the mobile version. Should Failbetter resolve their programming bugs, I'll give Fallen London a higher rating. Until then delicious friend...
I love Fallen London even tho this app has some issues (syncing, ect). This doesn't really bother me too much. What's more concerning is they don't appear to be actively updating this app. So any problems are likely to be sticking around and any improvements are likely not coming.
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.
