The extra cost of games on WP7 is worth it to me as I find a lot of value in Xbox Live achievements. For people that don't really care about that, then I agree that WP7 versions of games are a ripoff. Plus, iOS has gamecenter and it has achievements. I would assume the same game with achievements is still cheaper on iOS over WP7.

For those wondering about achievements in Bejeweled Live, I earned 35 points in my first game, so they're MUCH easier than the XBLA version.

I pulled the trigger on Bejeweled and PvZ today. This is the 5th time I've bought PvZ. :) I now have it on PC, Xbox 360, iPhone, iPad and WP7.

I'll prolly pick up both as well, but I waited on PvZ until there was a WP7 version, and at $5 it's a good price as well.

I got plants vs zombies. Its the first wm7 game I've purchased and had the Focus since the day it came out for my work phone. It will probably be the last unless they drop the ridiculous prices or I catch another game I like but don't own my android on sale.

WP7 Deal of the Week

This is actually a pretty good game if you like hidden object games. Easy Achievements too.

Also thank you everyone for posting comments on the Babaroga interview. Very kind and helpful of you. No sarcasm at all, nor am I discouraged in any way.

Not sure if I'd like Women's Murder Club, but for $2 I'll probably buy anything. I'll give the demo a try later.

I'll buy Women's Murder Club, making that the first WP7 game I've bought. Can't wait to hear from my friends when they see this in playlist.

I have Angry Birds on my iPhone, but never played it for more than 20-30 minutes. Achievements might actually get me to finish this game. I don't see getting 3 stars on all the levels though.

If you missed Twin Blades before it was delisted, you'll have a chance to get it again next week.

Twin Blades returns on July 6

Nice!
And only $2.99? Was that its original price, or is it a sale?

It was always $2.99. A good bang for your buck. My review will run at WPCentral on Wednesday. :)

My wife has been using her Windows phone for a bit now and really digs the casual game scene. Glad to stumble over this thread and have a place to check out releases, deals, and reviews. Great thread! :applause:

I'm glad I didn't impulse buy Bubble Town before demoing it. That may be the worst XBL game on WP7. My first no-buy at $2.

I like Bubble Town, but damn it's ugly.

Same here. I had a lot of fun with Bubble Town 2 and I got all 200 points easily enough. It's just hideous, is all.

Will have the tomorrow's Deal of the Week in a few!

I'll probably pick that game up. I've tried the demo for it twice. I kind liked it, but not enough to buy it. It being a deal will probably get me to pull the trigger.

Will most def buy Magic Marker. Wanted this for a long time and waited for DOTW> I am debating on buying Beards and beaks-love the demo/trial and is only 2.99. Cool DLC offerings

Played the first couple levels of Max and the Magic Marker. Awesome game. Perfect for a smartphone, and the achievements seem pretty easy too.
