    I also got it the last time it was on sale. Thanks to Bing rewards I've been able to keep up.
    Exactly...people always ask me why I "spend" so much on digital content, and the easy answer is always "because it's not my money!". Between Bing and XB rewards I easlily have $10+ a month.

    range is good said:
    ...but I think the touch controls are better on the Windows Phone version. Still, the best way is to use a keyboard on Windows 8 if you really want to go for a high score.
    I am almost positive I used an Xbox controller for the W8 version, which is far easier than either touch or keyboard, IMO.
    Look at me so I can finish!

    yes this is true but if the game has been removed from the marketplace you can no longer download it on wp or win8. I can confirm this because I tried to re download gunstringer after it was removed but couldn't.

    I just bought this yesterday for 10 bucks. Fuck me right? Lol
    that's unlucky, but it's an excellent game. One you can keep playing after you've got the 200G. You get all that G on the first course and there's another 8 or so to play.
    250 achievements on old games for 1% increase.... soon be 90% >_<

    Might pick this up since I finally got around to grabbing a W8 laptop. Not touchscreen though, not sure how smooth it would be with a mouse/trackpad.
    Does this smell like chloroform to you?

    From what I remember you can use keyboard controls still.

    That would make things much easier. I might as well grab this then. Easy completion on WP/360.

    My GF has this and its hard to play on the phone IMHO. But for $3 I will buy it and try it again. I love the 360 arcade version of this game. Fun as hell. I grew up with pacman, ms. pacman, pac land, pacman + and a bunch of other off the wall pacman games they had in the arcade.
    If you dont believe I have 10 xboxes check vic viper cheev for oct 28th 2012 in otomedius excellent.

    I just loaded it up and can confirm that you can use a 360 controller.

    Ive picked it up on the phone, but don't know whether its worth the price on win8 even at the discounted price. £1.99 for the phone was fine., or am I just being too picky. It is easy GS afterall.

    why only 1 title a week? theres probably 80 xbox games on WP. 1 a week, with some weeks having rehashed sales, its like they wont people to buy games.

    What about Toshiba and vaio versions??
    From what I can tell the Vaio version has been delisted and the Toshiba version is still available as a free trial in New Zealand and Australia if you have a Toshiba. What I don't know is if the in-game purchase of the Toshiba version is at the discounted price.

    You can still download Win8 games by going to your account (not the marketplace) and selecting "install". I removed Gunstringer the other day and redownloaded it.
    WP on the other hand, if a game is gone, then it's gone.

    Fun game, although I picked it up when it was 99c at one stage. Kept me busy on my flight home :D
    I like what I like and I don't what I don't.
