I found a bug! Can you fix it?

Yes! We want to know about bugs so that we can fix them! We are a small developer so we don’t have the resources to find bugs on the thousands of different devices and configurations we support.


Please report any bugs using the in-game Feedback menu in the Options screen (cog icon). Be sure to include as much information as possible, such as your device type, operating system version, and the exact steps that lead to the bug occurring. This information gives us the best chance of reproducing it internally so that we can fix it!
