It is account based.

Your Windows Phone Marketplaces purchases are tracked the same as Xbox Marketplace purchases. Your Purchase History is available online, same as on xbox.com.

Purchased games can easily be re-downloaded to a different phone as long as your LIVE account is on it. Game progress / save data however is another story.


Also, I don't believe the same thing applies to other Marketplace items like music. I had a bad download and there was no way to download again. I ended up just getting a refund, but I now use Amazon for music DLs instead of Zune.

^Especially weird considering the Xbox 360 Deal of the Week is running way behind schedule and hasn't even updated yet.

still debating on whether or not to get Rocket Riot. Tried the demo, seems repetitive and am unsure if it has anything better to offer aside from what is in the demo. Might be the first game I don't buy as DoTW and just noticed Civ Rev is already up on sale as well.

^I beat it already, it's slightly repetitive. It's only 48 levels though so it's not too hard to blaze through in a couple hours. Plus avatar awards make it nicer. I found it much easier than the XBLA version, if you've ever played that.

The GPS location thing works much better, which is nice. But I've pretty much unlocked every achievement that doesn't involve crazy amounts of grinding, so I think I'm done with the game anyway.

I’m glad to report the boss still gives you jewels every time, even after the update. Phew!


Phew indeed!. The second I saw the update notice on my phone, this was my first thought. Thanks, Paul! :)

Anyone know how the WP7 version of Civ Rev compares to the iOS one? It looks like that one got an update with more scenarios back in June.

They're just timed exclusives, right? It might be fun to have Connect 4 when we're on long car rides or on vacation.

Ya I'm pretty sure everything is timed. That being said, maybe the rest of us will see Mirror's Edge soon since it's been out on Nokia phones for a couple months now.

Also I don't care too much about the exclusives, especially when they're asking $2.99 for Connect 4.

Based on playing the demo and what I have read online, Connect 4 is terrible. It has some bewilderingly long load times and slowdown for a game so simple. It's one freakin' screen the entire game and they can't make it load instantly?

It would be a questionable purchase for $0.99, but for $2.99 it's definitely not worth it.

It looks like Zombies!!! is the DOTW, unless I missed a price drop recently. The game was $4.99 right? It is now $2.99.

Awesome, I've been waiting for that to drop since getting my phone. I don't have room for it, but I'm getting it anyway.

Looks like Glyder: Adventure Worlds got a price drop. Now only $0.99!

Edit: My smartphone is stupid.

Trying to buy Carcassonne but I keep getting marketplace error c101a006 :cry:

Edit: for anyone experiencing this, don't use the in-game link from the trial to purchase. Just go to the marketplace and find it. That's what I had to do.

Sweet. I won a code for the DLC for Zombies!!! a while ago but never actually had the game. Now I can buy the game and have both! :)

Had a feeling we might see a deal on this game for Halloween.

Looks like Glyder: Adventure Worlds got a price drop. Now only $0.99!


Glyder has been $0.99 for quite a while now actually.

Zombies DOTW article - mentions some update details that will be good to consider when debating a purchase.
