So looks like your Event Tracking is working.

You won't see the screen tracking data on the Events page. So if you clicked on Behaviors and Screens and didn't see any data, make sure Screen Tracking is set-up properly. I have mine set to Track Screen on Start of Layout.

Maybe having two Track Screen events is cancelling them both out. Try removing one and run the game and see what shows up.

Also, did you make sure to set-up the tracking property in Google Analytics as a Mobile App? and not a website?

If you're referring to setting up as a mobile app, you have to do that from the beginning:

one way to check is if you have APP OVERVIEW in the left nav column. 4th one down under INTELLIGENCE EVENTS.

yea i may have not set it up as a mobile app.. i see under intelligence events:

Overview
Daily Events
Weekly Events
Monthly Events

Thanks a lot for the help on this. Very good stuff! I remember a long time ago that GA was very easy but over time the menus / options have gradually gotten more complicated.

Let me clarify, it will be the next major section under Intelligence Events, and above Real Time. But sounds like you don't have it,because you can't miss it.

If I were you, I'd create a new property in GA as an app so it can record everything properly from now on.

Happy to help. Good luck!
