Dark Lands updated, adds cloud saving for game progress

Dark Lands

Dark Lands is a tremendously popular Windows Phone game that was updated this morning to version 1.1.4 to add cloud saving to the table.

For those not familiar with Dark Lands, it is an endless runner styled game that adds combat and role-playing game elements into the mix. The graphics are stunning and game play addictively challenging. Along with fighting orcs, goblins and other monster the game also includes unique boss battles as you progress through the game.

Along with minor bug fixes and performance tweaks, the version 1.1.4 update adds a cloud saving solution that will let you save your gaming progress. This will let you transfer progress to a new Windows Phone or other platform if you find yourself borrowing an iPhone or Android device. It will also let you restore progress should you ever have to re-install Dark Lands on your current Windows Phone.

The downside for some will be that cloud storage is linked to Facebook login. Just log into your Facebook account off the main menu and your character profile and gaming progress will be saved. I would liked to have seen a OneDrive option offered but Facebook may be a more universal option and likely easier to use for cross platform access. Nonetheless, being able to back-up your gaming progress is a welcomed feature.

If you haven’t tried Dark Lands, it is a free game that is available for both Windows Phone 8 and 7.x devices. You can find Dark Lands here in the Windows Phone Store.

Does android and ios support cloud save backups for games??

George states this in his article: "This will let you transfer progress to a new Windows Phone or other platform if you find yourself borrowing an iPhone or Android device".

In other words, if you save your game in the cloud on a Lumia 1020, you could pick it up on a HTC One for example.

Happ to hear that. Because the game is a bit boring. I can kill those three very easily. Whats more I can also pass level (usually the first level) without loosing any health :-)
