    Once you connect to a wifi network go back to marketplace and check the status of install. Click and hold to retry.

    I had the same problem. So I downloaded it via the Zune app with my phone connected. First it said that I had already installed the trial? But it was not on my phone.

    So I just bought it. But it still did not show on my phone.

    I think later in the marketplace app on the phone I went to install it again and now it said I already owned it and If I wanted to reinstall.

    Seems to work now just fine..

    Great game!
