    We got new iPhone 5s and want to sync some old accounts.

    In one account, I want to preserve the progress in games (Pony Trails mainly, there's other things called Ham Race and Stickman 2).

    I backed up the iPhone (old) and then synced it with iPhone 5 but the games are not there. I searched to see if the game was in the iTunes to see if I could manually drag it to the iPhone 5 but it wasn't there neither.

    So I tried to download it again from the App store (knowing that it wouldn't have the progress saved but, better than nothing)

    But then it says
    And I can't find where the "Store menu" is.

    Look in the App Store app. At the top of the list is a Purchased tab. Tap on it and then inspect the list of apps that you've downloaded previously.

    In iTunes right click on your iphone and click " transfer purchases" all of your apps and games will be copied to your iTune library :)

    Note:
    You have to authorise your PC with the same apple account (ID)

    And I think you also have to choose "backup this iPhone to this computer" in iTunes. If you do a cloud backup, all your purchases are in the cloud and won't even be transferred to your computer.
