    I just installed Wordament on my Windows 8 desktop and played one round. I ended up getting two achievements, which I already had when I played the game on Windows Phone.

    Is there a reason why the achievements are separate and not integrated with the Windows Phone version of the game?

    Will the same thing happen if I install the desktop version of other games that I already have on my phone?

    Because this wasn't in the design of the game.

    They are two separate games.

    Hopefully we see devs in the future design for a seamless multiscreen experience.

    Thanks for the explanation. It would be nice if Microsoft figured out how to integrate achievements on its own games across its own platforms.

    I noticed this a few days ago with Galactic Reign. I'm kinda disappointed that the experience isn't seamless.
