Gameloft Updates Ice Age Village for iOS, Breaks the Game
Adjust text size:
- Ice Age Village
With more than 10 million downloads in the App Store, Ice Age Village is one of the most popular games launched by Gameloft.
Unfortunately, the game was affected by some bugs that never got addressed until today. Or at least that’s what we though when we noticed Gameloft
pushed a new update for Ice Age Village on App Store.
The following changes have been included in this update:
- 5 new animals to liven up your village: The Tapir, Badger, Black Panther, Bat and Dire Wolf;
- New items: warm your heart with the Love Nest and Nursery;
- Max level has been raised even higher, with fun new quests for level 60 players and up;
- Compatibility with Facebook's Open Graph 2.0 to play more with your friends.
Alas, the update breaks the game and those who updated report that they cannot open it anymore.
Some players report the game crashes as soon as it loads, while other claim it won’t even load. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.

Very glitchy app - surprised it's popular.
Latest update stops the game from loading, previously there were so many bugs my children lost interest in it and spend all their time on Sims freeplay. We wasted a fair amount of time and money on the game so are very disappointed in the software developers.

My ice age village shows scrat loads to 100% then shuts down. Y ?
|Comment #7 by: G Money on 21 Dec 2012, 21:25 UTC|| reply to this comment|
It's true - the update broke the game. Now it crashes before it ever opens up. Very frustrating! Can't believe they would release such an update without thorough testing. I'm going to call them "Grinch-loft" from now on! They are going to lose my business.
|Comment #8 by: Luke on 21 Dec 2012, 21:38 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I also downloaded the update and it won't open. I was on level 56! What options do I have?
|Comment #9 by: Scratty town on 21 Dec 2012, 22:21 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I cannot open the game since updating yesterday!
|Comment #10 by: Goulise on 22 Dec 2012, 00:29 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Crashing also. Missed out on my daily bonus. Was counting on it too.
|Comment #11 by: Ali3071 on 22 Dec 2012, 06:07 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I have not been able to gain access to the game since this update!!
|Comment #12 by: sunshine on 22 Dec 2012, 06:54 UTC|| reply to this comment|
so sad. after waiting for a loooong time for another update, the game won't start anymore. I hope they fix it soon :(
|Comment #13 by: clareen on 22 Dec 2012, 07:38 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I was up to Level 53 and downloaded the updates - guess what the game started at Level 1 again - I had lost all my hard-earned gains
|Comment #14 by: Louloured on 22 Dec 2012, 09:18 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I updated the game on my IPhone and my daughters Itouch and it won't even open. Gameloft support told me to switch the devices off and back on again! I kid you not! Ridiculous.......
|Comment #15 by: Bgt on 22 Dec 2012, 12:24 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Annoying that Gameloft won't acknowledge and respond to complaints about this...customers have invested time and money.
|Comment #16 by: Bevey on 23 Dec 2012, 03:36 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I can't get my game and I'm unhappy as I had a lot of time and paid for this game. I did enjoy it while I could play it but if I can't get it back in tact I will never play another game by game loft again
|Comment #17 by: Iceland on 23 Dec 2012, 10:52 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Game won't load at all and don't really want to re install as reached a high level. Infuriating what now?
|Comment #18 by: Lindal on 23 Dec 2012, 11:10 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Wow three days and game still down,! What's going on?
|Comment #19 by: Steph on 23 Dec 2012, 17:48 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I am so mad I did the new update and now it won't let me play. I have paid for things and now I want my money back I have tried o play for three days now and no luck. I would like some one to contact me and let me know hats going on or give me my money back.
|Comment #20 by: Mexican Rhino on 23 Dec 2012, 21:44 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I love the app and find it super fun but I have been very annoyed with the recent update due to it opening but then closing almost straight after. Also once they fix that problem I think they should enable even more space (land) so I can breed more animals and put down more fun items.
|Comment #21 by: Yvonne's village on 23 Dec 2012, 21:45 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I am really frustrated and disappointed having reached level 60!!!! please, sort it as soon as you can, many thanks!

I updated and now it won't load!! Ahhhhhh! I am on level 58. I hope it gets fixed soon!

When this crash problem will resolve?
|Comment #25 by: Cbcarolbarrel on 26 Dec 2012, 01:22 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I updated my ice age village 12/21/12 and now it won't open. I had three eggs hatching and now I can't even play the game. I'm hoping it gets fixed because I don't want to start over.
|Comment #25.1 by: ejnagy1 on 28 Dec 2012, 01:05 GMT|
After the update, I have never even been able to open the game period. I wish they would get this fixed.
|Comment #26 by: ejnagy1 on 27 Dec 2012, 10:20 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I'm on level 60, been on for 4months, then it updates and you can't even load the game? Again gameloft?
|Comment #27 by: Chez on 28 Dec 2012, 06:44 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I cannot understand why the GameLoft people have not responded to the update crashing.
Surely it would be good manners to let we, the faithful players, know what is happenning.
I was also on maximum level, with thousands of acorns and billions in coins, keenly awaiting an update!
|Comment #27.1 by: Agree on 02 Jan 2013, 04:55 GMT|
I had the same problem as everyone else, really annoying. But they did post a fix for it, you have to do it via your computer (I access it via iPad). My very clever husband fixed it and I'm back on, but I'm a bit put off and cautious about spending anymore money on the game. :(
|Comment #28 by: Sue h on 29 Dec 2012, 19:16 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Was on level 60. So frustrating, and there seems to be a deafening silence from Gameloft......
|Comment #29 by: Bree on 02 Jan 2013, 05:13 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I waited for ever for the update. Got it & now the game won't load. I would love it if they would fix it, otherwise I'll just delete the ap
|Comment #30 by: ladybug on 03 Jan 2013, 01:33 UTC|| reply to this comment|
When is this going to get a fix we can actually use to play our game again? Been nearly a month and still down. Gameloft needs to get serious and get this fix done....
|Comment #31 by: Yvonne's village on 03 Jan 2013, 07:23 UTC|| reply to this comment|
what a cheek!!! Happy New Year, love and joy!!! All this and yet STILL no contact regarding why we can't play the game!!! Are we players to accept that this will not be resolved and in fact you don't really care!!!!
|Comment #32 by: tddsparks on 05 Jan 2013, 16:35 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I can't believe that there are no update status reports as to the status of very few "minor updates" that break the game....really????? And it takes more than 30-60 days to fix the problem without so much as an explanation to all of us that play the game.....C'mon guys, how many of you will it take to fix "this bug"???
|Comment #33 by: Noddysmate on 06 Jan 2013, 17:06 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I really loved the game. I have quite a big village with lots of complete collection of animals. Unfortunately just over the last few days when collecting hearts visiting other villages the screen freezes. This happened yesterday & I can't return to my own village. I have been notified that the latest baby has been born but there is nothing I can do. I'm stuck in a 'friends' village. Much as it pains me, I'm seriously considering deleting this game. Sad.
|Comment #34 by: Wahid on 09 Jan 2013, 17:35 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I am facing the problem for more than two months now I thought it was only me glad to know it wasn't only me, waiting despretlly to start again, I had babies on the way hope they are safe heheheehe please game loft do something quickly.
|Comment #35 by: Yvonne on 12 Jan 2013, 19:50 UTC|| reply to this comment|
At last!!! Thank you..... Back on track, game restored!
|Comment #36 by: annoyed on 18 Jan 2013, 14:46 UTC|| reply to this comment|
The game continuously crashes which makes it very annoying when playing.
|Comment #37 by: Lynville or treefroglyn on 18 Jan 2013, 17:31 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Gameloft sent me a fix and it worked. Now a new issue. When going to "friends" it downloads to 50% gives me an error message that I am not connected (I am) and freezes. Anyone else having this problem?
|Comment #38 by: Grandma on 27 Jan 2013, 20:31 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I don't think you want to know what I really think! I will tell you that my grandkids are completely devastated about this! Please fix this as soon as possible!

Oh, naive me... After I did the fixes for this problem, i didnt learn. :( We had an update again this week and my IAV iPad won't start up! Crud! And cruddier developers & QA. For shame.
|Comment #42 by: Eb on 11 Feb 2013, 23:16 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I still cannot open the game since the last update. I don't want to delete the game as I have spent quite a few pounds on it and have reached level 64

Please help!! Same thing is happening with my Ice Age Village app on my iPad. It gets to the Fox entertainment page & shuts right down.
|Comment #51 by: Caz on 21 Mar 2013, 19:26 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Had lots of trouble loading the game initially but have really enjoyed building my Arctic Heaven. However, within the last week Scrats Village has frozen twice. The first time, after I'd found Scrat, it was on a timer (12 hours if I remember correctly) so I had to wait for this to run out before I could continue building my village. The second time, 3 days ago, it just froze, (no pun intended!), again after I'd found Scrat. But it is not timed this time so I cannot access my village at all. VERY! VERY FRUSTRATING!
|Comment #52 by: Caz on 26 Mar 2013, 07:35 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Game restarted after being frozen for 4 days but has now frozen twice over the last 2 days when the ad has come up to buy the Statue of Liberty and then reduced Acorn packs. I don't want either but I don't get the option to buy or opt out as the screen freezes as soon as the ad comes up.

My coins totalled 2.147 billion.now it has stopped receiving coins. Why? I am on level 65.

I also have the problem with this game... it crashed 2 times and in both cases when i was collecting the coins... and can i save this village is there any way...i would be very grateful if you could help me...

I got it for my BB Playbook. Love it but it freezes or restarts when I try to buy or add something.

I'm running ice age on a mini while my wife is on a ipad 1 and hers will not load after the update but will on mine and we have both spent some good money on iap's (when on sale) and in the past week I have noticed that they have had a sale on acorns twice...you mean to tell me they have the time to put in sales but not enough to fix her game??? This is her favorite game and it sucks to have her have paid for nothing...gameloft really has its priorities twisted I tell ya.
|Comment #57.1 by: stardust on 24 May 2013, 17:59 GMT|
Same here when i click on shop it wont let me open and freezes. It will only buy things through the quest menu but will not let me select friend hearts through the shop at all. I even tried selecting the shop menu by scrolling up and down through the shop menu when through guests which is the only way its accessed. Only decorations and animals can even be bought through guest menu. This sucks i even contacted support they said to restart phone and turn wifi on and off still hasnt helped it.
|Comment #58 by: dek on 26 May 2013, 13:29 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I have got automatic update on 05/23/2013 .Since then every time I access the shop the game freeze for a few seconds and crash

this has been an ongoing problem, for the last year I have had coins, acorns and animals just vanish....play the Scrat game, the "rewards" are never given..u "fulfill" a task, yet it does not count it, I have "collected 25 freinds" x 6 ! and STILL SAYS 0.....far to much crap...am getting ready to boycott Gameloft, am tired of this unethical crap
