    I've posted about this but no one seems to care: is there any chance you're going to start using QR codes that the Windows Phone's QR code app can actually read? The lime green doesn't work.
    Works almost instantly with my L920. Which phone do you have?

    Anyone know if the completion is easy or difficult?
    looking at the game's completion chart.. I'm going to say no
    good hunting

    Might worth it to add this from Just Creech:

    The game saves to the cloud and the saves can be accessed from any device. This has benefits and drawbacks. The primary benefit is that you really only have to play the game once even if you own all three versions of it, as long as you load saves correctly. The primary drawback is that if you DON'T load saves correctly, some achievements can become permanently unachievable on other devices. As such, I strongly recommend purchasing all of the three versions you plan on playing before starting any of them, and then progressing on all of them simultaneously. This is the most efficient use of your time and avoids any glitches.

    Yeah, if you've already played Skulls on another device, the achievements on this become totally broken. I just found that out, and am a bit annoyed.

    Thanks for the info, but this really turned me off. So, I can't buy the game on WP7, play it through and then play the game on my XBOX, without glitches?
    I have come here to chew bubble gum and kiss ass...and I'm all out of bubble gum.

    Exactly. You would have to save to cloud before you get ach, then load that save on xbox and unlock ach same time on both devices to avoid glitching.

    Press the magnifying glass button (Bing search) on your phone, then press the eye icon at the bottom. Scan, then touch the web address it finds from the scan.

    The multiplayer is a pain, single player all gold isn't too bad, but some of them take some skill, there is a guide for the xbla version that I followed for the most part. This was at least 15 Hrs to complete, I would say more like 20, though.

    Awesome! Instant purchase. Just got the XBLA last week. Wish the Win 8 version was on sale too.
    Jump right out of a creek!

    Think I'll pass on this one, sounds like a pain in the ass if I ever want to play it on another device.
    Sleep is so overrated.

    so for the achievements, you have to load the level on each platform (win/xbox/wp) at the same time and finish the levels while they are all loaded at the same time?
