Game won't load

I tried loading it prior to the update and after, and it won’t go past the beginning screen (continue game). I recently updated to IOS 8.1 on my iPad air, could this be the problem?

What happens to where it won’t let you continue? Are the touch controls missing or something?

I reinstalled after reading the thread on Toucharcade. That seemed to resolve the problem, the game works fine now. Thanks for the quick response!
