It’s an idea that surprisingly hasn’t been implemented before on Android: sharing of game saves. That is exactly what Game On is attempting to do with its new app. This app allows users to download save data from the Game On servers to install on their games. This can be used to unlock all the levels in a game, for example, or to perhaps impress someone with ill-gotten prowess in Angry Birds. Those birds aren’t going to launch themselves, but perhaps someone else can!
The app comes with a few caveats; it requires Root and BusyBox in order to run, as app data is stored in the system folder, which requires root and superuser access. As well, it appears as if only several dozen games are supported, including Age of Zombies; this list should be expanding in the next year along with non-root access. The app also has to load up the list of supported games each time it loads, so it can be sluggish to use. Still, for those curious to get game saves on to their phones, this is an interesting app. It is available now in its beta form for $1.00 from the Android Market.
