Arthur McCollum

Arthur McCollum is an unfortunate person who suffered from a rare disease that stopped him from growing normally. Even though Arthur is less fortunate physically, he is gifted with a brain that can label him as a genius person which helps him survive the zombie outbreak. He kept his mind busy with mechanical engineering when he got bullied in school.

He likes to create an enormous mechanical fist that keeps the bullies away and actually allows him to have some friends and even fans. His mechanical engineering prowess grew as his knowledge also grew. Eventually, he made an exoskeleton that fires rockets and knocks enemies.

Developer Notes and Bug Fixes

These are some of the issues that the developers have addressed on their official social media posts. Some players were not able to claim the daily rewards due to a problem with the check-in icon. The same has been resolved.. The issue in Underground Shadow Exploration has also been fixed.

Some bugs were also fixed based on the feedback of the players in the month of February. The developers have also answered some questions the players are throwing at them. Here are the answers for most of them:

  • Why was the information of other alliance leaders not shown in the private chat during the Reservoir Raid event?
    • The problem could be due to network delays as private chats are not affected by reservoir raid events.
  • People are asking if there’s an issue with the status display when alliance members were last active.
    • The status is meant to display and show the last login time and not the length of time online so the answer is no.
  • The currency occasionally changes to the currency of other countries in some of the in-game bundle purchase pages.
    • This may be due to network delays as the currency used to make payments in the store will be the same as the currency used when you registered your account.

Some players have also encountered other issues such as black screens in addition to these problems. Some pictures were also not displaying correctly and not loading completely. These are the methods you can use if ever you encounter such problems.

  • Try restarting or even completely reinstalling the game.
  • Check the network connection if you are connected.
  • Check if you have updated to the latest version from the playstore.
  • The first time you open the game after updating it, you need to wait for the game resources to be completely downloaded.
  • Check if the device has sufficient storage space and clean if your storage is full.

You can contact the SoS support service if the issues persist.
