    You need 3.5 to 4 times the download size for the install space of an app. The app install package is compressed and it needs more space when it installs.

    The app/game that you wish to download must have additional data which will be downloaded after the game is installed on your phone.
    If you have latest OS update i.e (Windows Phone 8.1+) then you can download/save the game on your phone MicroSDCard.

    Windows has strange ideas on your storage. I suggest getting to about 1.5-1.75GB of storage free for a file that big. Otherwise it will continue to tell you this. Alternatively, you can go to Storage Sense and see what's taking up space where and get rid of unneeded files. WP might be allocating most of that left over space for SMS/MMS storage or for space to put update installs.
