How to make an application work again on a Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet?

My Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet updated itself yesterday. I was in a hurry and did not pay attention to what was actually happening but when it had finished updating, certain apps no longer worked, notably Chrome, Kindle, VLC and the Sims Freeplay game. They started and then closed immediately. I uninstalled and reinstalled the first 3 apps, losing any parameters set previously, no big deal, but I don't want to lose my Sims (or more precisely my young daughter doesn't).

If this was Windows I'd find a way to hack the registry, but my knowledge of Android (4.1.2) is nil. I'm quite sure I can make the Sims app start again without having to uninstall/reinstall it and lose everything but how? (the game progression was not saved on the cloud so no hope there). Or can save the game data, reinstall the game and copy back the data? And what happened anyway and how to prevent it?
