Default Backstab, purchase again?

Just bought an xperia play which i absolutely love. Already own a xoom and was looking forward to putting all the games i bought with it onto my play, however i cant seem to find backstab in the marketplace on my play and the only way to get it seems to buy it again directly from gameloft. Is there anyway i can get it onto my play without having to purchase it again?

You could get it from an "alternative" market.

There is a way. If you've still got the Backstab.apk file on your old phone, you could connect that old phone to your PC and then transfer the .apk file to the computer and then plug in your Xperia PLAY to your computer to transfer the .apk file from your computer to your Xperia PLAY.

To do this you'll need an app called "ASTRO File Manager" you can download it for free on the official market.

PM me if you need further help. Good luck.
