Does anyone know how exactly to purchase the Zombies!!! Dlc? I am using an HTC Arrive, I deleted and reinstalled the game to make sure I had the newest version, I just can't find it anywhere. I'm hoping it's not delisted.

Looks like Wordament is now available as a browser game as well, and you can earn achievements. :)

You do it from within the game itself. From main menu hit play game, then above where the characters are you will see expansion packs. Hit that to bring up the purchase screen where you can use your points.

Wow, that's interesting yet cool. Wordament is whoring itself out like crazy now. Managed to get 80% of the achievements in like 5 rounds since my progress carried over from WP.

I will be very upset if my HTC Arrive from Sprint doesn't get the 7.8 treatment. Is this rumor true? :hot:

^Most message boards seems to suggest that it's true. Someone said they contacted HTC and were told the update isn't coming.

There's a chance it'll still be doable though, the Dell Venue is updated without an official Dell announcement. Hopefully MS steps up

Wait, so does the browser version have separate achievements from the phone app? As in a GS double dip?

Ya. Triple dip if you know anyone that has an iPhone that you can play it on. I believe it's also available on Windows 8 for the rare quadruple dip.

Between games that only work for WP7, ones that only work with WP8, and ones that are available only to Nokia phones, this fragmentation is starting to bug me.

It does! This is actually very encouraging. I think I may pick this up over Skulls. $2 cheaper and I really enjoyed the console version.

Just got a 920 to play around with, guess I'm going to sub to this thread now.
Loving this phone so far, aside from the fact that the contact profile pics do not sync to the cloud. Very annoying.

I have a Nokia Lumia 820, and I cant figure out how to get to the free version of Super Monkey Ball 2... I've tried going through Nokia Collection, Apps and Highlights, etc. I keep seeing 2.99$, but I see a little blue square that says 'Nokia' and when I touch it, the price disappears, but it still says Try and Buy, and when I click Buy, it says 2.99 again. What am I doing wrong?

Try the QR code on that page - I actually had to reset my phone to get it to work. Also, Sonic CD is free for Lumia users as well.

I'm glad to see any new release, especially a Square Enix release for my poor neglected Windows Phone, but let's face it, I, and I think everyone else would be a lot more excited if this were a release of one of Square's better known games like Chrono Trigger or The World Ends With You. What I wouldn't give for a WP release of games like that with achievements.

I would definitely rather have this over a JRPG, but I have to admit that I'm getting bored will all of the puzzle games. And I love puzzle games...it's just that there are too many of them that are so similar.

I was just thinking the same thing. I don't even like JRPGs that much, but I had a blast playing Final Fantasy on my phone, maybe because I could play small chunks at a time on the go. I'd like to see games with more substance on the marketplace, and not this never ending wave of puzzle games. I feel like very week it's just another game with stages you need to three star.

Sonic CD free on Nokia phones, but without Xbox Live Achievements


I followed the link to the store from the article, but I get an error trying to download it. It says either it's not supported on my carrier, my phone's software is out-of-date, or it's not available in my country/region. When I search in the store, only the $4.99 version appears.

I'm using a Lumia 920 in the US on AT&T and running the latest software update, so I'm pretty sure none of those error messages are true. Anyone know what might be up?

The Sonic CD free offer has apparently ended. But it wasn't set up right and a lot of people had trouble downloading it.

I hate puzzle games and I actually like koozac a lot.
Doesn't feel like a bejeweled clone like everything else . I like the math angle, the achievements are easy, and ill gladly give Squeenix my money so they'll port more of their jrpg classics.

Also anybody looking for a skulls of the shogun or carcassonne achievement buddy hit me up.

I'm gonna get the Skulls of the Shogun demo sometime this week and check it out.

Any idea how long the "sale" price of SotS will stick around? I'm a little short on cash this week, and aside from buying Xbox points using store credit, but WinPhone isn't so flexible in payment options. :-(

As Paul stated a few days ago, the SotS devs haven't stated when the sale will end. They're just staying mum on the subject so whatev.

That being said, kinda jealous the W8 users are getting Monster Love Candy :cry:
