How to save your profile between installs


I’ve had a lot of requests for the ability to keep a profile when you need to uninstall the app, or do a factory reset on the phone – with the latest version of World Attack this is now possible.

Step 1:

Make sure you have the latest version of the app (1.21)

Step 2:

Make sure you have an SDCard inserted

Step 3:

Before you uninstall the app, click on the “change profile” option in the main game menu and long press the profile you want to keep. You’ll see the following options:

long press

Step 4:

Select “Backup to SDCard”, and all being well you should see the following:


At this point you probably want to go on to step 5 straight away to confirm that the backup restores correctly.

Step 5:

Once you’ve reinstalled the game at a later date, go to the profiles section again and press the menu button:

restore profiles

Step 6:

Press the “Restore Profile Backups from SD Card” and any saved profiles will be recreated. Exisiting profiles will never be over-written, you will simply get another profile with the same name.

The restore option always loads all saved profiles. To delete a backup up profile, long press on it, choose delete and then press the “Delete Backup” button on the following dialog:

  1. Hi,

    Finally you do it, good news. I wanna try it, but the Market doesn’t give the update :/ I’m in spain

    Do you know something about it?


  2. By the way, the stupid market did NOT inform that there was an update for your app, and from what i read in this blog there have been several updates since i bought the app… maybe a internal update checking would be usefull in the future.

    For people with the same problem go to your apps in the market and find abduction! and klick on install again, it should promt you with the regular update message…

  3. I know that this is not the best place for this, but how do I contact you to report bugs in the software?

  4. Hi this game it’s cool~~~
