Crashing games?

Hi folks. I just purchased an iPhone and jumped on the 99 cent sale on SciFly. However, it crashes on me after a few seconds of play. It's happened three or four times. What's the best way to address this? Delete and re-download?

The first move it to restart iPhone.

I did that but I still have the same issue you've described. So it seems a game bug rather than an iPhone problem.

I am sure you upgraded it to 2.1 firmware correct?
I am sure you did just making sure

Also its wise to install and game and do a complete reboot, especially on big graphic intense games

and yeah all else fails delete and redownload it

Easy enough. Re-booted the phone and now it works fine. Cool little deal for 99 cents.

scifly crashes for me 2. By "rebooting" do you mean turning it off and then turning it back on or do you mean restoring it on iTunes?

Poor choice of words. I just meant I turned the phone off and then back on.
