  • [Android] Game won't start on Lollipop/Android 5.0 (PARTIALLY FIXED!)

    Q: I just bought Fieldrunners (or maybe it was Fieldrunners 2) for Android—or, heck, maybe I recently upgraded the operating system on my Android device—and the game won't even start. What's the deal?

    A: This is likely to be an issue with the new Android runtime (a.k.a. "ART"), which can be activated in KitKat and comes installed by default on the new Android 5.0 operating system, Lollipop. Our games weren't originally designed to be compatible with ART, but we're working on rectifying that now. It takes time to fix the code and test it to make sure that we don't inadvertently break anything else in the process, but please keep an eye out for updates.

    Update: The fix for Fieldrunners 2 just went live on the Google Play Store, so Android players who purchase from Google should be able to run the game without issue now. We are still working on the fix for Fieldrunners HD and investigating options for games purchased through Amazon, but we expect to have more good news soon!

      I acquired my copy of field runners and field runners 2 via Humble Bundle. Will there be a fix for us?
