I started playing on my iPad 3 last week. Then I got my new iPad Pro, restored the iPads state from iCloud, which took almost a day because of Ho many apps I have.
meanwhile I was still playing Templar on my old iPad. Now my new one is up, but when I try to play it, it is not syncing up to the latest state on my old iPad like most of my other games do.
Is is there something I can/need to do to get this thing work? Or is it a feature/limitation? Failing that is there an easy way to do a one time resend so I can make my new iPad my main device without losing this last days progress?

old device is an iPad 4 I think. It's running iOS 9.3.5
New one is iPad Pro running iOS 9.3
I don't really think that this is an apple issue as my other games are syncing fine. Just to be clear, I do not think that this has anything to do with iCloud (now) because AFAIK iCloud is not used for live syncing games states and is just used for backup, restore and recovery. I only mentioned as context for how the game got to a day old state on the new device.
Wha it appears is that the Templars game is not syncing at all and seems to have no awareness of the other device or its game state. What I asking is, is this A) a bug in the game, or B) just a limitation of the game that is, it just doesn't do multi-device syncing via Game Center, or whatever the way some other games do.
I as because there are plenty of games that don't do this (like most Freecell games, for instance) though usually apps with long progressive game states do.
