    Just a quick warning, seems like WP Achievements arent syncing right now. I've unlocked 5 across two games and none are showing on Xbox.Com.

    Unsure if its just me but looking on Xbox Forums seems some other people are experiencing problems too.

    Annoying thing is, when I reinstall the game it's still showing the achievement as unlocked In-Game so I'm hoping it'll eventually sync when the issues pass or if we're/I'm screwed out of 2 completions.

I bought a used WP really cheap last time so I'll just play it on there when the problem is fixed again.

Its kind of ridiculous that were having these kind of issues still and the only way to fix it I to wipe your whole phone..

    especially when it's a delisted game and you can't reset or re-download game. Had it happen to me a couple of hours ago when I completed Chickens Can't Fly.

    Is there any chance they're automatically sync when the servers come back up (Even leaderboards on WP isn't working so I think its more of a infrastructure issue with the whole of the service on WP rather than just Achievements) or is there a 95% chance we're screwed?

    The price for the game on the Windows Phone platform in Australia is $4.29. I think I will pass.

    This game is great. One of the best Windows 8 /RT and WP games. Ridiculously easy completion too.

    yup... I haven't bought a Win8 game for a while. Seems this is the perfect time.

    Based on comments I'm grateful I still steer clear of WP games.

    Hmm I am 2 achievements short of 30 for today's leapfrog and I won't be home until later tonight. I was going to buy a WP game to get 2 quick achievements, but now I am not so sure. This is not cool.

I unlocked an ach on asphalt 8 (wp) for fully upgrading a car but like others when I press re-fresh It just says there is a problem with xbox live. Honestly I swear ever since the xbox1 was released there is a problem with xbox live virtually everyday. I like the fact overkill 3 wp was updated today but still has 9 areas locked so you still cant complete it.

    I have to agree with you though, I honestly cant remember the Xbox Service being disrupted as much as it has been the last year or two, it's beyond a joke now.
