Sweeping the nation into a gossip frenzy, Love Island has got to be TV’s most treasured dating show.
The ITV2 show is so popular it even has its own game running alongside the season.
Series 5 kicked off from June 3rd 2019 and version two of the game was also released around the same time.
But, when first released it looked like the Love Island The Game wasn’t working.
Here’s what to do if you’re having issues with the game…
Is the Love Island game not working?
Fans of the Love Island game could hardly contain their excitement when version two of the game was announced.
With some people waiting a whole year for the new release, you can understand their disappointment when after downloading the game and making a few clicks, the game crashed.
For a few players, it looks like the game is working fine, but many took to Twitter in an attempt to get the crashing issue resolved.
What does Fusebox say?
Many players’ negative reports on the game were replied to on Twitter.
However, more often than not, they were simply told to report their issue to Fusebox Games’ support page.
After looking into the reported ‘crashing issue’ we found that Fusebox games have said that they’re “working on it as fast as they can”.
As of July 5th 2019, it was announced that fixes were made to the game and it should be working fine as of this date.
How to stop Love Island The Game from crashing
According to Pocket Gems, there are a few things you can check if your game keeps crashing.
Firstly, are you using a low-memory device? If so it might not be able to keep up with the game.
For a stronger connection and faster loading, Pocket Gems say to make sure you’re using wifi rather than a data plan.
Lastly, delete any apps you don’t use and close any apps running in the background.
On July 8th 2019 Fusebox Tweeted out some instructions on how to stop your game from crashing.
