    Text says "Get once, download on compatible Windows Phones too"
    Just wondering if there's a list somewhere showing all games that are purchase once and get both versions?
    The only thing I could suggest is having a look through the live compatible games and looking for the icon, sadly there isn't an option to narrow down the search.

    ilomilo is such a lovely little game.

    Love both games, but considering they're on sale bimonthly most people who want them probably already have them

    Are these the cheapest these two titles have been, aside from a possible free time?

    Edit: For Win 8 I mean.
    Job & A Social Life, achievements most gamers refuse to earn...therefore, their ratios are high.

    The reason they are always the same games is because companies don't want to invest in developing for it. Windows Phone in the US is less than 3% of the market share, and Windows 8 is seen to many as doubling down on the second coming of Vista. Look at the list of titles that have achievements in them - seems like Microsoft is pretty much the majority, followed by a few other brave companies that learned the hard way: Windows 8 and/or Windows Phone isn't worth investing the time and resources in.

    The market share may not be super high, but it's no excuse. Maybe if they had made the marketplace the equivalent of the apple store they'd be competitive. But they are too arrogant to care. The UI is so much better on WP, it is sad how they don't support it. They could have absolutely made a footprint in the market, but they are clueless. Seems they're getting that way with everything lately, so not sure why I'm surprised.

    I've supported WP from the start, but my next phone won't be one.
    I call this my fortress of being alone by myself!

    No, I bought Illimo for a buck.

    Just to confirm if I buy Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ for Win 8, I'll get it free on the WP like Spartan Assault?

    I want Ilomilo on WP but the demo is broken for me. When I go to the main menu no matter how much I tap nothing registers so I cannot even start the demo from the game's menu screen..
