I have made a mobile game and I’m interested in a doing an avatar cross-promotion with Oopstacles, how can we make it happen?

Sometimes the offerwall may take longer than expected to receive notification that the offer was completed. In this case, try waiting a moment, then opening and closing the offerwall to refresh its status – you should see the reward appear upon closure of the offerwall.

I did an Everyplay video recording with the face camera and the background music and sound effects are distorted, what’s going on?

Everyplay uses your microphone with the face camera. What you are hearing is echoing audio from your speaker going into the recording. When using Everyplay with the face camera, the overall volume is automatically lowered by the game. If your device’s speaker is still on a very loud volume, trying turning it down, so that it doesn’t echo into the recording.

Why does the sound go quiet when I play Scream Mode or start an Everyplay recording with the Face Camera?

The master volume is intentionally lowered during Scream Mode so that it doesn’t interfere with the microphone and make your avatar move.


During an Everyplay recording with the Face Camera, the volume is automatically lowered so that it doesn’t create echoing in the recording, due to the microphone picking up audio from the game.

Why doesn’t Scream Mode work? My avatar doesn’t move at all when I scream into the microphone.

Scream Mode requires access to the microphone, which requires your permission. If you previously denied this permission request popup from within the game, you will need to enable it manually. To enable it manually, you will need to open your device’s OS (operating system) settings. Navigate to the entry the application Oopstacles, then enable its permission to use the microphone.

I am hearing echoing and distortion in Scream Mode, what’s going on?

What you are hearing is echoing audio from your speaker going into the recording. On most mobile phones, the microphone and speaker are on separate sides of the device. However, on some tablets, they might be close to each other. Try lowering your speaker volume and adjusting the sensitivity slider.


For best results, it’s recommended to use headphones with Scream Mode.

How do I save my data to the cloud?

Simply log into the game using Game Center on iOS (with iCloud enabled), or Google Play Games on Android. You should be prompted to sign in automatically on startup. You can also log in via the Options menu.

What game data is saved to the cloud?

Your avatar unlocks and Challenge Mode progress is saved to the cloud. Note that coins and shields are not saved to the cloud and must be spent on the device on which they were earned.

Why won’t my save game data sync to the cloud?

In some cases, save game data is unable to sync immediately on startup. Play at least one game force a cloud sync to occur, i.e. play until the game over screen then press the replay button to return to main menu.

I uninstalled and reinstalled the game, where did my saved data go?

If you uninstall the game, your saved data will be deleted. After reinstalling, you need to log into social services to sync your savegame from the cloud. In addition, you can restore any avatar purchases from the app store as follows:
