Windows Phone 7 game discussion thread

I have one complaint with the game. When new things get introduced, you get a little tutorial. This tutorial is just a chalkboard with little drawings on it. A good number of these, I just stare at and am not sure what it is trying to teach me. I guess I have the sound off. Maybe there is talking going on, but I'm assuming not. I wish the tutorials did a better job teaching me the game's mechanics.
When you finish a level, you get zero to 3 gnomes. Kinda like getting 3 stars in Angry Birds. Some levels I've finished with 1 gnome and I don't know why. Then I think I do bad on a level and get 3 gnomes.
I'm sure I'll learn how this game is played better from other people's experience. I just wish the game would do that. If I'm completely missing something in the game's menues, let me know.
Otherwise, I'm enjoying the gameplay.

One weird thing is you buy the DLC with MS points. The same MS points you have linked to your Xbox 360.
Also, you have special powers like dropping meteors. You use mushrooms to power these special powers. The mushrooms charge over time. Like you get another batch every hour, real world time. You can use MS points to buy more mushrooms if you don't feel like waiting an hour.
So, the game has DLC maps and boosters that you pay for with MS points. Not sure if there is another game out there like this.

Here's my Sonic 4 review too.
Finally, I reviewed Pokedex Mobile, created by CAG's own Zophar. Great app for Pokemon fans.

Last weekend, we asked our readers what mobile games they would like to see ported to Windows Phone as Xbox Live titles. To make things exciting, we promised to award Beards & Beaks avatar prop codes to the nine most convincing and/or interesting entries. After pouring over the overwhelming number of entries in the contest forum thread, we have chosen nine winners.
Contest results - What mobile games WPCentral readers would like to see ported to Windows Phone
It was tough picking just nine winners, but I think it made for a great wrap-up article. Please visit the results page and post supportive comments as Microsoft will definitely be looking at the article this week.

I thought about waiting for the game to be a $3 deal, but figured I can afford $2 more.

Free sudoku and mindsweeper are up. I couldn't find them on the phones marketplace. Opened Zune on pc and went to games and release date and they showed up.

I'll be skipping the soccer game as the deal of the week.

Maybe I'm too old, but the game gets moving really frickin fast. I just can't keep up.

While were at it, does anyone have a complete list of Xbox LIVE WP games that use cloud saving? I know there can't be many.
