He knows it's not just him. Many people have posted here and elsewhere about the rampant crashing. Personally, if I avoid the few actions I know will cause a crash, I find the game quite playable, but it's certainly a buggy release. Do releases often have bugs? Sure, but this one has a lot, and many very obvious. I'm not just talking about crashes either. For example, there are several instances where text stays in place on screen when switching views making information unreadable. I've played hundreds if not thousands of iOS games, and this release is certainly subpar in terms of stability and polish. I am not sorry I bought it, but it's hard to argue it wasn't released a bit to soon. For $10 (not much to pay for a good game, but a premium price nonetheless on iOS), people expect a bit more. So a game that is buggier and crashier than even the average 99 cent game is gonna take some flak and see some negative response. I'm not sure why this seems to surprise you
To be clear though, my experience is not the same as people who are saying they can't play without crashes. I've played a few times for several hours straight without a crash by avoiding the actions that have caused me to crash before.
