Good news! Gameloft has modified their DRM policy to allow you to re-download purchased games when you get a new Android device. Previously, you would need to go through customer service to accomplish this feat. No more.

Gameloft has been making other changes lately as well, like finally launching their games on Android Market. The DRM policy change will make having all your games on all your devices much easier. Previously you would need to either back up all your games on your SD card and then transfer them over, or you could deal with customer service to get the job done.

Now, you can just go to the Gameloft site and re-download the games you already purchased onto your new Android device. This is a very nice change, and a very welcome change. It will undoubtedly save Gameloft customers some serious time. Try it out and let us know how it goes. The change has been confirmed by Gameloft staff, so hopefully there will be no problems. If there are, check with customer service.

Note: Any old .apk files you saved as back-up of Gameloft games will no longer work.
