Question:  I have already played this game on my previous device and now I’ve got a new device. How can I transfer the game progress I’ve already made to it?

Answer: Due to certain technical reasons it is impossible to transfer your game progress from one device to another. Please be informed that we create separate applications for different platforms and even devices in order to provide the best possible experience to the players on each platform. There is a substantial amount of work associated with producing a version for this or that device- the screen dimensions, the size of the screen, and the controls are different, and there is a lot of work that goes into redesigning and adapting the user interface. This needs to be done to ensure the best possible experience for the players, and that's why for now we stick to the business model where there is a separate application for each platform. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Question:     How can I speed up game downloading?
Answer:       Downloading of the game is not an immediate process, it takes some time, depending on the speed of Internet connection you use and quality of communication. We recommend using Wi-Fi connection for game downloading because there are restrictions on the size of downloading files while using 3G connection.
