    Dunno, how?
    ....the magnifying glass button on your marketplace on your phone? wink search for each game and there should be a separate free version if your phone qualifies

    I searched for "Nova" and only got the paid version, so after your comment I tried searching for "N.O.V.A" and it showed up. Thanks again fella.clap

    It's just a damn shame that I'm running out of space on my Lumia 625. Thanks to Halo:SA using so much and only having 8GB internal phone memory. roll If I try deleting temporary files it just sits there for half an hour and getting nowhere, then it locks screen and back to square one.

    With 8.1 you can install games to SD card, I suggest upgrading via the preview http://www.wpcentral.com/windows-phone-81-now-available

    Does anybody know if you can downlad games from windowsphone.com and put then in the SD card throught usb or SD slot?
    Yes, you can. They call it "Sideloading" in WP 8. See link below. The trade off is that you can no longer use your SD card as integrated phone storage like you could in WP 7. As an example, I have the Huawei WP with very limited internal storage, so I bought an extra 32 GB card in order to install Spartan Assault. While I can use the card to hold and install the .xap file, the game still has to be installed entirely on the phone's internal storage, meaning I paid for a game I can't play until I get a phone with more internal storage.

    This changes in WP 8.1 which is out in dev preview right now!

    I have a 64 GB SD card and you can now fully install apps on to the SD Card!
    Fan-FREAKIN'-tastic! You, sir or madam, are a hero. High schools will surely be built in your honor.

    Any idea if they also fixed the picture/music duplicating problem?

    Thanks Nokia! I'm glad I upgraded to the 1020. I'm loving the new wp8.1 update as well, Cortana is awesome and the new start screen looks much better.

    I'm warning you now: DON'T GET ASSASSIN'S CREED! Graphics from 2 generations ago, dodgy controls, bad jumping, and crap combat. Not worth it, even for the achievements.

    Anyone having luck with the Nokia Icon? It keeps telling me the free versions are unavailable for my device.

    Lumia Icon running 8.1 here and the games were downloadable a couple of nights ago (due to issues with my WiFi I was only able to d/l Shark Dash), but they're not listed anymore. Not sure what the issue is.

    Another WP DoTW that is laughable....Carcassonne was DoTW not too long ago if I recall!
    Pff. What nonsense. Carcassonne is a great game and at 99 cents that's a great deal. Not laughable at all. Yes, it's been on sale before (this is the 4th time), but that happens quite a bit, and it's still a great deal for anyone who doesn't have it yet.

    Whoa! I had given up all hope that they'd bring this over to WP8! Now, for Tentacles and DoDonPachi! Would be nice if they made The Harvest like Halo: Spartan Assault where one purchase is good for both Windows Phone and Windows 8/RT.
