Game repeatedly crashes

I just updated this morning, and since then I haven’t been able to play. It opens fine, loads the floor, but two minutes into gameplay it crashes and restarts my phone. My phone is up to date, there are no other apps open, I’ve tried it with WiFi and then data to see if that did anything and it still crashed. I’ve had issues before with losing characters and all my progress, so I’m leery or uninstalling and reinstalling. The comments on the app in Google play lead me to believe this isn’t just effecting me. Is there anyway to fix this on my own or am I just screwed until the next update, and hoping that one will fix the problem?

What type of device do you have?

I have the HTC one m8
