Deleted a Game Save by mistake .. help

I deleted my game save for the California Gold Rush app and I didn't want to. Is there any way to get it back?

I haven't synced my phone with my computer since I did this .. is the only way to restore my entire phone from back-up?

Have you closed the app at all yet since doing that?.....a hard reset may ring it back if you haven't.

Hold the home button and power button for 10 seconds until the phone resets.

Otherwise, no not really any way to get it back, without restoring the whole phone from backup.

no way that I know of, unless you saved a backup and restore from that
