    This update broke the game on my Nokia 920. It is so slow that it is now unplayable. Anyone else having this issue?

    • Mika Hakala

      Same here on my Lumia 920. Deleting the game and reinstalling fixed it, and I was still able to load my saved data from cloud save.

      • RichWolf

        Thx Mika…how do I save the game data to the cloud?

        • Mika Hakala

          I think the game automatically does that. I know that I hadn’t change any save settings, and when I started the game after reinstalling, it notified me that my local data is different than in my cloud save, and which data would I want to use.

          • RichWolf

            THANKS Mika!! It worked. I uninstalled/reinstalled and opted for cloud restore. It’s ironic that the technical folks at Gameloft appear to be stumped (-;

            cloud save is powered by Microsoft Azure!!!!!! that means cloud save games is supported on windows and windows phone 8.0/8.1+ up, no need for restarting a game, its not just for xbox 360s and xbox ones anymore, its for all Microsoft platforms. COOL

    Hi! Sorry for a propably stupid question. But I’ve been using Windows 8 for few days only and I have no idea how to update this game. Do I have to uninstall it fist? (I don’t see any ‘update’ option anywhere). Will the game data be saved automatically even if I don’t use the cloud? Thank you!

      When you open your store you see right above a button with update, when you click that the store sends you to the updates, when there isn’t a update button right above you have no updates
