I may be wrong, but I believe that if you are wanting to play an up to date version on Android you can always try the buildbot Android versions:

http://buildbot.scummvm.org/builds.html

I believe these should include the new engines.

EDIT: I believe it is the ARM version that should work on most devices.

The fact that there's no official build yet, leads me to believe that there are some unsolved issues.
..or is it simply due to lack of maintainers?

All of the buildbot versions refuse to install on my phone. No error code given, it just says the app didn't install. Any ideas? I'm running Marshmallow, if that helps.

It's not just you, I just tried the current stable build but it isn't installing on my Oneplus One either. (Lollipop) :( I have used buildbot builds before, but not for a long time, so I don't know if them breaking is a recent problem. Sorry, I'm not sure what the reason is. It could potentially be the same reason that there is no official build at the moment.

Did you try uninstalling any previous version before installing the new one?

I don't currently have any version installed, I'm ashamed to admit.

You may want to check that you don't have any old plugins left over etc. See:

Thanks digitall, that really did it!
I never bothered to check for old versions because I only switched to this phone last month and knew I never installed ScummVM on it. Turns out, one of the migration tools apparently carried over the old Sky engine plugin from my old phone. Removing it did the trick.

Sorry for taking up your time, guys.
