This Tutorial also covers “Download failed because resources could not be found” There are so many users looking for the quick fix because they simply can not play their downloaded games because of this error. Looking for Resources to download is a common error if game does not find its data files where it belongs thus it gives an error.

Why This Error “Download Failed Occurs on Android Games” ?
In 95% cases this error comes when you download APK+DATA files and you do not place the data properly. and in 5% cases this problem happens because of Apps license problems.

(1) First Solution is to get that particular Games license from the play store. to get the license go to play store and start downloading that game.when downloading starts you will have your whenever you install that Game’s APK you will not get this error instead Data files will start downloading directly. but when there is a paid game then you can not follow this Tip at all.
