    This is one long demo, jeez.

    I'm finding the game excellent right now. I'm pretty sure is not as smooth as the IOS version but how does it compare to the Android ones? It's so much better than the browser one.

    I don't get how Microsoft expects to compete with other platforms by not pricing their apps and games competitively.

    Angry birds is like $3 on WP7 but it's free on Android. Angry Birds is a fun game and all but I don't know if I would spend $3 on it, at least after enjoying it for free on Android.

    So you would gladly spend $3 for example, a pint of Beer but not on a game???

    You are paying for the offering of Achievements in these games. thats why they cost more.

    The biggest problem is probably that users simply don't have a choice. Even if you really don't give a crap about the achievement system, you HAVE to pay that premium.

    I suspect the makers of the game decide at the outset how much they think they need to make off the game, and price it accordingly. WP has a vastly smaller user base than iOS. It's like the difference between buying a groceries at milk at Wal-mart versus buying groceries at your locally owned market.

    Which isn't to say that the price point for software and games in general has been off for decades, because it has. That's another story.

    You don't have to pay, just don't buy it. Give the free trial a twirl and move on.

    Free angry birds on android is horrible with those ads constantly on the part of the screen where the game is being paid. I mean really, is 3,4,5...10 bucks too much for something that devs have put time and effort in. [this isn't directed towards you, just a thought] I

    I have no doubt I'm in the minority, but I think the entire pricing structure of these apps and games has been out of wack from the start. It's no wonder some of the apps, not only on wp7 but other platforms, are so bad. People actually complain about paying 3 dollars for a good app. 3 dollars. That's less than one lunch.

    edit: and I'm not talking about being out of wack on wp7, I'm talking about being out of wack from the start of this whole 'app store' phenomenon

    I can think of a thousand things that cost $3 and probably won't provide me with as much fun as these games would. What should it be priced at? Two dollars? One dollar? It's only $3 guys, it's not like it's $30. Look at it at as far as value for your buck. What would cost $3 that you get to keep forever? Not very much, right?

    Aw man 3 bucks!!! that's just too expensive. What's that Call of Duty MW3?!! wow the special edition is only 200 dollars and comes with a toy, so cheap.


    Anyway, is not expensive but is more expensive that on IOS, let's supported and doesn't run as smooth. So while I don't have a problem with the pricing. I expect it to at least be on par.

    android also has ads on the free version... you will pay for the full version on ios and wp7 because it is ad free .... also in wp7 you get acheivments... something most dont care about, but hey it is what it is....

    I am not sure why people are saying less smooth and doesn't run as well as on ios? I have played this game to death on my GF's Iphone and also on her Ipad and to me this game on my LG Optimus 7 runs better and smoother then her Iphone and on par with the Ipad. So I wonder why a few people have said it's not as smooth on WP7. I honestly do not agree with that in what I see.

    Have to agree I have been playing this on my HD7 and it is very smooth indeed, I would say it's much smoother than the ISO model.

    My observations:

    I just installed and played anrgy birds on both my HD7 and Sensation.

    Right off the bat I noticed that the Sensation played the game a lot smoother. The HD7 played the game pretty smooth but next to the Sensation, you definitely notice how much smoother it played it.

    Keep in mind that the Sensation has more ram and processing power than an HD7. So it had better play it smoother! :P

    I'm playing it on the Focus though and I have zero complaints. It plays just as smoothly as the iPhone version.

    Glad to have something that'll keep me busy for a while now. My phone was collecting dust on the games end of things. Hopefully next weeks release is equally entertaining.

    I got the trial version and I don't see the big difference between my brother-in-law's iPhone version and WP7. The only difference I can see right now is that I can get achievements, and he can't. :-P

    I can't see the price going down (3.49 CDN), so I'll wait to see what's next in the line-up of games and decide later. You all make very good points though, which makes me want to buy the game sooner just to play the other levels. :-P
