The Benefits of Using Game Center
What are the benefits of using Game Center to play DragonVale?
Using Game Center allows you to fully save your game progress and is the best way to keep your park safe on an iOS device. Without a Game Center nickname, it may not be possible for us to restore your park in the event it is lost.

Forgot Game Center Login Information
I forgot my Game Center login information and have created a new Game Center account. Can Backflip transfer my park to my new account?
If a technical situation requires a transfer, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or submit a request using the link at the top of the page. Please be sure to include the Game Center nickname your park is currently associated with, as well as the new Game Center nickname you need the park moved to. We will do our best to accommodate accordingly.
We do not have any access to your Game Center account information here at Backflip Studios and therefore cannot retrieve this information. For password and account retrieval, please try recovering it here.
I updated my iOS and cannot access my old Game Center/Apple ID account because a pop up tells me my name has already been taken.
This is likely happening because you are signed into a different Apple ID than the one that is associated with your Game Center account. To fix this, you will need to sign into Game Center using the correct Apple ID and password. If you are having trouble remembering your account information, you can try recovering it here.
In the event you are unable to recover your account information, please send us an email or submit a request and we will be happy to see if we can help.
I created a new Game Center account by accident. How do I retrieve my old account?
You will need to sign out of the Game Center account you are currently signed into, then sign into the correct one. If you are unable to remember the login information for the correct account, please send us an email at email@example.com or submit a request using the link at the top of the page. We would be happy to see if we can help.
I used a fake email account to create my Game Center account OR my child cannot remember the security answers therefore I cannot retrieve the account info.
We have no access to this information, but suggest getting in touch with Apple/iTunes here in order to retrieve your account information.
