    Thanks! I have to give the credit to the Windows Phone Blog for the twitter update.

    Also, seems to be a little buggy (a couple crashes), but definitely fun to play.

    How do the IAP work? If I spend $4.99 on a powerup, does that mean I can forever use that powerup an unlimited number of times? Or does it expire like it does in Halo: Spartan Assault?

    No idea, but seeing as they can be bought for coins, I don't see the point in buying them with real money. however, for $5, you had better get every power-up forever and ever.

    That is my biggest gripe with these Freemium games: the IAPs are exorbitant. Most non-Freemium games of this caliber retail for $2.99 to $4.99. But here you download this guy for free, boot up the IAP menu and they're charging $5-$100. For $5 it should unlock everything but it doesn't. Absurd.

    I haven't tried logging in yet.

    Does anyone have that little bit of lag when in game? Other than that, it's a pretty cool game.

    Nope, just a severe battery drain, like with most games. I think after 20-30 minutes of playing, my battery dropped from full to about 77%.

    Yeah the battery drain is there, but as you said, I guess that's expected. The stuttering isn't so bad right now. Seems to occur more often when using those power bonus tetris things, but not limited to it.

    The only time I had stuttering really was when I was on a cellular network. On WiFi, I have few (if any) issues.

    The game's had an update today, updating to version 1.3.1. The app description says:

    "NEW achievements and times challenges
    Last chance Finisher
    NEW Power-Up friend unlock feature
    NEW Tip & Tricks page
    Exciting new Power-Ups"

    Some observations:

    --After you update, you'll have the update actually download within the app itself. It had a connection error my first attempt, but it worked fine the second time.
    --There's a "Pro Scoring Strategies!" button in the bottom-left of the main menu, which has different strategy things I didn't bother looking at.
    --The Power-Upo of the Week will change from the Tunnel Vision to "DD Coffee by Dunkin Donuts," so if you want to eat up the Tunnel Vision one first and earn it permanently, you might do that before updating (I thought about doing that, but didn't).
    --DD Coffee just has the description "Make a bold statement with the Dunkin' Donuts power up!" I'll post what it actually does when I get to playing with it a bit. On the plus side, you get 5 of them free, as opposed to the typical one.
    --I see no new Achievements, still sitting at 150/200 on my screen.

    Anyway, figured I'd let you all know, in case you want to check it out. I'm going to do so now.

    I really agree with you there. In my latest game I've added one item called all incluisve which cost 5$ and then you get Everything in the game and it also stops ads.
