Default iCloud Impressions Thread

I thought this might be useful for those of us who like to maintain game progress across multiple iThings. This can be a place where people can post what games use iCloud, ask if certain ones do or don't, and share experiences of which games seem to "work" and which don't.

I know there are already threads listing what games use iCloud syncing, but I want this one to be more than just a list. I want to be able to come to this thread and search "TINY TOWER" and see if others have had good or bad experiences with the syncing, or if it has it at all.


I'll start...

Here are some games that use iCloud syncing flawlessly (in my experience):
- Wimp HD
- Carmageddon (others had problems with it early on but it has always worked perfectly for me)
- PinWar
- Tiny Wings
- Time Surfer
- Ronin
- Punch Quest
- Word Wonders
- Hundreds
- Rayman Run
- Cubed Rally Redline
- True Skate

Some that only work some of the time in my experience (still awesome games):
- Pixel People
- Dream of Pixels
- Polymer
- Extreme Roadtrip 2

Some that almost never work (still awesome games):
- Almost every Ravenous game (League of Evil, Random Heroes, etc)
- Table Top Racing (devs are fixing)

Feel free to share your experiences with games that use iCloud syncing.

Also, Repulze and QatQi are supposed to be getting iCloud support in the near-ish future. Both are absolutely essential iOS games, in my opinion.

iCloud impressions update!

Here are a few recent games that use iCloud really well:

Super Stickman Golf 2 (everything but bux sync)
Table Top Racing (finally works, and it's awesome)
Rock Runners
Crazy Bill
Infestor (first Ravenous game to have icloud work perfectly for me)

And in the future:

Bobbing, sometime in the next update or two probably
Real Racing 3 is supposed to sync eventually but they haven't "flipped the switch" yet.
Repulze has been updated several times but still no syncing, which is supposed to happen sometime.

And sadly, no iCloud syncing:

Pixel People had it but it was removed.
Nimbebits previous game had syncing but not their latest, Nimble Quest. It needs it.

The list needs to be divided into at least 2 categories: Games with icloud syncing and games which use icloud for storing saves. It's a big difference, since games which allow you to push saves to icloud can (as long as it's implemented correctly) be safely deleted and reinstalled from ALL DEVICES at a later time.

Some examples of games in the latter category (I wish all large, both in file size and length) which implement icloud STORAGE flawlessly are IB2, GOF2, Pilot's Path, and Vice City.

Yeah, we need a volunteer to maintain a good icloud saves list. Would be very helpful if anyone wants to try and do one.

Nice to find this thread.

Well i never used iCloud before so i dont know how to use this but i want because i want to put my game saves in "safe place" but i have Jailbreak (i dont use JB for download apps, only for customize) all my apps are legal. So is a problem to use Jailbreak and iCloud at same time?

Another update with recent iCloud games I've been playing:

iCloud Just Works:
Badland
Combo Crew
Robot Unicorn Attack 2
Block Fortress
Pudding Monsters
Bottle Cap Blitz
League of Evil 3
Real Racing 3 (they finally added it! Yay!)

iCloud Rarely Works:
Random Heroes 2
Infestor

Honorable Mention:
Jetpack Joyride
(I used to play the hell out of this on iPad when it came out, and apparently they included iCloud at some point and I just recently noticed. Well done Halfbrick!)

All in all, it seems more and more devs are getting the hang of making iCloud work really well (or it's getting better on Apple's end). Unfortunately, I'm noticing a trend with Ravenous games in that they seem to sync perfectly for the first few weeks and then abruptly stop. I'm not sure what could cause that, but it's happened for almost all their games for me.
