To be clear, I'm NOT complaining about Scirra's plugin (I haven't even tried it yet), but the Facebook Instant Games feature itself is giving me fits. I've been so excited about this potential new market for casual games but I'm having a hell of a time getting many of the features to work. Specifically:
1. Earlier today I played some of the top games (on my laptop). That seemed to go okay, but when I tried to invite my wife to play she only got a notification on ONE of the five titles. I attempted to send multiple invites at various points throughout the day with the same result.
2. I'm probably missing something but the games don't seem very discoverable. My Facebook page has a thousand links and buttons on it, so it took awhile to find the Games link on the left side. Then I had to find the "Instant Games" link. Based on what I have been reading I thought I could find the games from within Messenger but so far I haven't been able to do that. (I'm kind of old and I don't use Facebook/Messenger much, so there's that...)
3. I thought maybe I would have more luck with my iPhone but it took me forever to find the Games button and when I tapped it I got a blank screen... repeatedly. Then it dawned on me that I haven't updated Facebook in... forever... so I did that. This time the Games List came up. Awesome. But when I tap any of the games I see this message: "Game Not Available - This feature isn't available yet". (I've tried Words with Friends, EverWing, and a dozen other titles. Same message.)
Is it just me? Is anyone else having trouble?
