I am formatting my android tablet, and I have around three games with progress I do not want to lose, and one of those games has a few in game add-ons purchased (example gems or tokens or such to progress faster).
How do I make sure I do not lose my progress and paid for in game items? If I connect it to 'google play games' does that save my progress? and let it start back up where I left off once the machine is formatted and game re-installed?
If so, on one of the games I went to add to 'google play games' it asks for permissions:
Know the list of people in your circles, your age range and language
Share your google+ profile information and view and manage your game activity
View your basic profile info.
The one I am concerned about is it saying ''view and manage your game activity''. What does this mean? Can it change my game progress? change other games connected to google play games? How does it manage my game activity? very confused. Should I accept?
Please let me know how to sort this, as I need to format my tablet and may be moving to a different tablet and want my game (with game progress) on the new tablet.
Thanks in advance!!
