Majority of tips not saving

iOS on iPhone X and previous gen iPad Pro (but also on previous devices I’ve had):

For quite a while I thought this might be my imagination, but the vast majority of tips (the +++’s and -‘s etc) are clearly not being retained, or at least not cumulatively, from game to game.

There are always a few saved — perhaps just the ones from the previous playthrough — but at this point I’ve played the game for at least 350 game years, and always do every game report.

And there’s just no way at this point that the Sci-Fi topic shouldn’t be totally filled out, or that NES+Adventure being a bad combo should be forgotten.

This issue has persisted across multiple reinstallations and multiple devices.

Any guidance? Anyone else experienced this?
