What's the current best way to make game saves and loads for Android games?

I read the manual on "How to make savegames", Local Storage, and Web Storage, but I'm getting funky effects so far when testing APK builds on my Samsung, such as gamesaves not loading even after hitting save spots, as well as odd effects when just testing out of C2 through Preview on my PC, such as the load resulting in an odd spot in the events.

I'm keeping things simple for now, just using: [System > Load game from slot "mysave"] to load, and [System > Save game to slot "mysave"] as well as [System > On save complete] to save, with the hope that it'll load exactly at that point of what happens after [On save complete], but it seems to be missing events happening after loading.

Are you looking for highscore or game save in general I got examples of both?

Thanks for all your help so far! I just want to save the game at the start of each layout, so that if I exit the game and open it again, it loads to that layout. How to do that? The basic System Save and Load options, or something for Local Storage? This is for a native Android app off GPlay.
