    It depends on the game. Some games store the information on the device, other games store it on the cloud either apples or their own.

    I also have a bunch that store progress using a social account like Facebook.

    Usually the cloud (iCloud/gamecenter/social) is the safest way. In alternative, should none of this be available, if you can plug your device to a of you can download some utilities on the computer, like iFunbox, which can access non-protected folders of your device (like app save file) and you can copy them. It's not 100% guaranteed, though, as some games are server based (but, in that case, savings should be accessible in the cloud, so no harm either way)

    I think it's likely that doing a backup of the old phone using iTunes and restoring the backup on the new phone will work. But it'll also reset everything else that is on the new phone to the state it was on the old one. So that might not be a solution for you.

    I am having the same problem. The game is a gamecenter game, but for whatever reason not being recognized, and it asks me if I want to delete my old progress and move to the level one on my new phone---um, NO! So I guess it sees my old game but wont move it.
