Good game.. I like it.. :) Some of teh cheeves will be a challenge..which is also good. Cannot wait for tiki and fable coin (new release) to become DOTW.. Love it. What will be cool if they do sales that encompass the distributor.. Like MS is doing as of late on the 360.

Darn I already have Uno, it's an easy 200 points if anyone is interested.

Thanks for update.

I'll pass on Uno. Not a huge fan of the game, especially not for $3.

If you'd like to see a forum area here on CAG dedicated to smartphones and tablets, and the games and apps on them, post in this thread:

http://www.cheapassg...d.php?p=8390875

There are a bunch of smartphone and tablet threads spread across various forums here on CAG, I think it would be nice to have it one place and have an area to post threads about individual phone/tablet games etc.

If it was 1.99 or a buck. I would buy, but w/ no multiplayer component..this is UNO, then I cannot warrant a purchase at 3 dollars. Lame. I was hoping for any of 10 other games I want on my phone. :(

WP7 Deal of the Week

April 13

Also, this week's Xbox Live title is... You guys should read my article. It's a bit clever.

Don't know much about Game Room on WP7? My Centipede review is live. I'm especially happy with the lead photo on it.

Here's some good news, too. Avatar Gadgets is now free.

Finally, Assassin's Creed dropped to $4.99. That's more like it!

I'm tempted to buy EWJ, but I'll have to pass.

Until they create some sort of game controller accessory, I don't see myself playing anything other than puzzle & board games.



ps. Any chance this thread will get moved to the new Mobile Games forum?

I hope not, no-one will see it.


Might pick up EWJ, it's on $3 after all.

Earthworm Jim looks like it would be difficult to play with the controls it has.

I have bought EWJ 2-3 times in my life. Once on Sega Genesis and once for GBA for sure. I don't think I ever bought the XBLA version. I will not be buying this version. I don't think I've ever played the game for long. I don't know if it is difficult or that I just don't understand how to play it. I can't imagine playing it with a touchscreen only.

Pitfall I find to be kinda interesting. I would really like to see the achievements. Might be a good game to wait to be on sale for $2.

I bought this on XBLA and it's only OK. The reviews on the phone's page are absolutely horrible for EWJ. Guess I'll pass for another week.

Yeah, ill pass. Bummed, there are at least 10 or more games I want for my phone, yet the games have been subpar for deals. Here is hoping next week we get something worthwhile

I don't think we'll be moving this thread to the WP7 forum section. Deals go here, discussion goes there. I do encourage everyone to join in and subscribe to the WP7 discussion thread though.

I was holding the phone while letting the dog back into the apt and dropped it, fell right on the glass.

It's insured, but I heard the deductible is about $125, so it will probably still be a month or so until i can get the money for a replacement.

What I don't understand is Krome stopped making the update packs for GAme Room but here are WP7 "Game Room" titles from them.

That pisses me off.

Pass on EWJ own it on XBLA and the frame rate isn't 10/s.

I was excited about Game Room on Xbox 360. Then I got burnt by it. They promoted that you could do Game Room on 360 and PC. I played away on various games on 360, unlocking medals and such. I then gave it a try on PC just to see how it worked. When I went back to 360, my entire history was wiped out. All the progress I had made was completely gone.

There is a pretty long thread in the Game Room forum on xbox.com of people that had the same issue. I never bought another game again after this happened I was so annoyed. I played Pitfall for over an hour just to get a medal. That's an hour of boredom and I lost that!! :(
