Unlock Codes & Unlocking Games - What's Changed?
We've made it even easier to unlock purchased games; we unlock the game automatically for you! Some of our long-time players may remember when a WildTangent game code was needed to unlock a game, something that looked like this, ABCD-1234-ZXYW. For several years now, a game unlock has not been needed to unlock a game on your WildTangent account after purchase.
How this works today is when you are signed in to your WildTangent account and complete a purchase of a game, we automatically unlock that game and associate it to your account. You can then see the game purchase on your Account Purchase History page. Clicking Download will start the download and install process for that game, if not already installed. Since a game code is no longer needed, there's no benefit to seeing the game unlock code on your account purchase history page. All you need is the download link to install and play the game.

How to Unlock a Game
In some cases, you may receive a game unlock code for your wild membership monthly game, a promotion that may be running on the site, or even gifted to you. In these cases you will need to do the following to redeem this code and unlock the game:
- Sign in to your WildTangent account, or create a WildTangent account if you do not have one currently
- Go to your Account Purchase History page
- Scroll to the very bottom of the purchase history page
- Type or paste the game unlock code in the provided space
- Click Unlock Game button
When the game unlock is successful, you will see this game in your purchase history. Click download next to the game to start the install process then play the game.
Wild Membership - Monthly Free Game
The Monthly membership game and unlock information are conveniently located on the Account Purchase History page. You should see the Game information in a presentation similar to below screen image, as soon as you sign into your account.
To redeem your monthly free game, copy the unlock game code from within the presentation, scroll to the bottom of the purchase history page, paste in your code and press Unlock Game button. That should do it. You're ready to click the Download link that starts the install process then you can play the game.
