Default Games crashing

My son recently got a Wildfire S for hvis birthday, but he is getting increasingly frustrated by games shutting down all the time. The apps start up fine, but as soon as the game itself starts it crashes within seconds.

I've tried clearing the memory so there is 25+ mb but this doesnt help.

He keeps getting this error (translated from Danish):

Sorry!
The programe Bttlefriends (proces com.tequilamobile.warshipslive) has stopped unexpectedly. Try again.
Force shutdown or Report.

It's the same for Boss2, Gravity Guy, Little Dragons and several more. As far as I can tell not large or demanding apps.

Is this a common problem on the Wildfire S? - and is there a solution?

I've never had an Android Phoenix myself, so have no idea where to start.

Firstly i would like to say that the wildfire s is not great at running games due to its low processor speed and ram. It also has internal memory issues. E.G it gets real low after only a few apps.
I would recommend checking the reviews of these games by people with the wildfire s to see if they have similar issues. I can say that when i had this phone games force closed every now and again but i didnt have any of the games metioned above.
You could try a factory reset to see if that helps also.

I second what Liamo says. Undortunately when it comes to games...WFS is not the best phone. It's best to stick with the older games which didn't involve so much usage of memory/processor

You can also try mailing the developer of the game to see if there is a known fault (and resolution) with the games(s) running on the wildfire s. You can get the developers address from the the page of the app in question on googleplay.

Thanks for the advice. Is there a place I specifically can see reviews by Wildfire S owners?

Otherwise I'll try resetting or mailing the developers.

On the play store you can actually filter reviews by phone types
