This just started recently to when i get into the game i get to the curse of the hobgobbler page and a popup says "this game needs an update ,update now to get new features etc." and so when i try to go to the app store and update it there is no choice to update but uninstall and open the game again. I have tried restarting my devices i have gotten rid of apps for storage thinking that would help and also uninstalling and reinstalling the game and still i am not getting and update if someone can help that would be great thanks .

Which platform do you use? Because I hear that Google Play is slow on the go for updates... Amazon should give you no problem, since I've already updated my game. 

For a problem like this, you need to 1) wait until your playing platform/appstore gets the update, or 2) get a new/newer device. Some updates exceed the limits of your device's software capabilities (which is what happened to me when SoD updated a couple years ago; I ended up getting a new device to play on, but I needed a new one anyway).

Dang, Bo, you beat me to it XDDD Wait, are you saying you have the Amazon App Store? Isn't it supposed to be potentially hazardous? I'm considering whether or not I should download it... and I don't know whether I should XDDD

( ͡• ͜ʖ ͡• )

Yes, I do. It's the default app store on my device, so I didn't need to download extras or anything. And yes, it's hazardous around here. Only the strong survive XD

Are you trying to load the game through Play Store, by any chance? Apparently, the update is taking a longer time than they expected to become available. I think it's Play Store's fault, not your device's. Unfortunately, I think the only thing we can do is wait. :(

Downloading the Amazon App Store miiiight work (I don't know if it does... I haven't tried it). SoD is available for free on there, I believe (correct me if I'm wrong)... but I would be careful because the only way (that I know of) to download it is to enable a setting on your device that could potentially be dangerous.

I really hope the Play Store works soon... and I hope I was helpful to you in some way :)

Well, your typical kindles are crxp for any kind of high-storage games. But a kindle fire HD (preferably from the newer gens) works just as good as an iPad or PC, sometimes even better.
