While I still don’t have a device that allows me to reproduce the Android crash bug during loading, I have some further suspicions where the bug may be coming from.
I have built a custom APK for you to try. If the game does not load for you since the latest update (i.e. 1.24), please can you install this APK and check it out? Let me know whether it makes any difference in the comments or by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
