Contract Killer – Its a bug’s life.

Glu is not know for producing the most stable Windows Phone games so far, and their latest addition to Marketplace, Contract Killer, is no exception, with numerous users complaining of issues with crashes or the game not even loading at all.

Barry wrote to Glu Mobile support complaining:

Hi Support,

Just downloaded Contract Killer.

Problem is I can’t play the game. The game hangs on connecting screen. I have restarted my phone and re installed the game, same issue.

Multiple users on are reporting the same issue, see link –

Are you aware. Will you be implementing a fix?

PS: I am using a Nokia Lumia 800

Thanks in advance
