How to install Kindle Game Data?

So...
I downloaded a game from approb.com.
It's Earth and Legend! Best RPG game evah.
I downloaded it and installed the .apk on my kindle.
After installing, it said I still need to download 60 mb of content.
I did not press "ok".
Then I downloaded the game data at approb.com and extracted at my kindle fire's android folder.
Yet it still says I still need to download 60 mb of content.

There are several newer games and other Apps that require you to download data in addition to the App itself (e.g. Shadowgun, Dark Space, Dictionaries, Encyclopedias etc.). Why didn't you just hit OK? There may be more involved than just copying the game data to a folder. For example, I can copy the Microsoft Office Folder from my PC to a DVD and paste it to another computer. However, it won't work. There are certain things the App probably receives from the download server in addition to game data that registers the game and makes it work.


I'm not familiar with approb.com or this game, however, I do know the App is available at Panda App (http://download.pandaapp.com/android....7-id5136.html).

Yes and I'm Not Sure. The game downloads and installs OK so in theory it should work. You are still prompted to download the App's 60 MB game data. However, the App remains on the "Restoring Bonus Content" screen for quite a while after downloading it. The Fire is still responsive so it tells me the App isn't frozen. However, I gave up after about 10 minutes. Since the content download is 60 MB (likely zipped) it may take some time to completely extract.
