You can delete files via your file explorer app if you are using < Android 12.
If you aren't, then you can delete files indirectly via permadeath.

1. Create a permadeath. Save it over a previous save that you want gone.
2. Load another save file.
3. Load the recently saved permadeath character.
4. Now load another save file without saving the permadeath character.

That save slot is not gone.


This is a stop measure gap until we can get the file deletion implemented. This is something that we've currently discussed doing recently

Is there a way to delete the extra save files by transferring the apk / files from android to computer, deleting the save files there, and transferring them back to phone?

It depends on what version of Android you're using. Anything north of 11, you do not have direct access to the save file directory

Total Commander can remove app data, like a save game in Android 11+, but you have to give it permission per app folder like in this screenshot.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.
