Game data that has been saved using the savegame system object is deleted when clearing the browser history. I have tested the attached project on a windows PC, an iMac and an iPad.
On the desktop machines it works fine. You can empty all the browser histories and caches and then reload your saved game data.
If you play this on an iPad, save the game state, clear all browser history and caches, refresh the game and try loading, all data is gone.
A live version of the game is here: http://fungooms.com/Test/
This might not be a bug - it may just be an anomaly of the iPad, but it does say on Scirra's site "Savegames are not saved in the cache. The browser cache is a very much temporary storage......."
A simple game that lets you paint circles on the screen and either save or load the pattern
Steps To Replicate
- Run the game on an iPad
- Draw circles anywhere by clicking and moving the mouse or touching the screen
- Click or Touch SAVE to save your progress
- To test that your progress is saved, refresh the page and load your last pattern.
- Clear all browser history and empty browser caches][Run the game and click LOAD
The work that you did is not loaded. It appears that clearing the history has deleted your data.
As what happens on desktop, your data should be loaded back even after clearing history.
