How do I find out, which game does not use iCloud?

Pretty much in the title.

Want to reset my iPad and make sure nothing important in terms of data and saves is wiped.

Thanks!

Settings -> iCloud -> iCloud Drive

There you can see all of your apps which support iCloud.

If you restore from a backup - iTunes or iCloud - then it'll restore all of your games whether they use iCloud or not.

Except Hopiko, possibly. It has some sort of anti-cheat mechanism which means it doesn't retain progress when installed on a new phone. I've been bitten twice by that! Not sure how it affects same-device resets.

Never had trouble with any other games when restoring from backup though.

Hopiko uses iCloud now.
