If you’re a fan of RPG games and have a stock device with at least 1GB of RAM and running Android 2.3 and up, by all means download Square Enix’s Chaos Rings. The game is available now and it costs $13 in the Google Play Store. Some reviewers even made claims that this was the best game that they’ve ever played for Android. But, if you’re running a rooted device then you may want to hold off on dropping your hard earned money on the title.
Reports are coming in that the game crashes on rooted phones before it even has the chance the launch. The reason it crashes is the game checks for a Super User folder before it opens and if that folder is present the game will not start. Square Enix says they are aware of this issue and it will be addressed next week.
Their response made it seem like the there’s a bug in the game but according to evidence from the XDA, this was programmed in by the developers. We’re heard of copy protecting video content from the Google Play Store but never a game. If this was done in an effort to thwart pirating the app they failed miserably since the game is out there. We recommend changing the folder name if you’re rooted to play the game until it’s fixed. You could get more than you bargained for if you choose the other less savory option.
