I used to play The Sims Freeplay on my iPad, but after playing the game for a week I deleted it, but I did not remove it from Game Center. I re-installed the game, but I couldn't continue my progress. Game Center is still showing the progress of my old account, but I couldn't continue it. Does Game Center save my The Sims Freeplay progress?

If it doesn't, why did it save for my Clash of Clans account? I re-installed the game and I still can continue my progress.

Game Center only saves games achievements; it never saves game progress. Game developers use different methods to store your progress:

  1. iCloud Storage: Your data are stored locally on your iCloud account. Usually you just have to reinstall the game and you'll be able to continue the game without problems. E.g. Pocket Planes

  2. Facebook Connect: The developers will connect your Facebook account and associate the game progress with your Facebook account. As long you don't delete your Facebook account, the progress is always be available once you connect the game with your Facebook account. E.g. The Sims Freeplay

  3. Games Account: Companies like Gameloft let you save progress to your Gameloft account. You'll need to create a separate account for these type of games. EA Games and Gameloft are the common type of company that use this approach to let customers manage their games across devices.
