"Free"

Ok, so i've downloaded the game, and so far it seems to be Happy Action Theater 1.5. I'm not sure if game "sees" that i've purchased the original HAT, but it's integrated all the old mini-games into this game, while adding the occasional picture taking gimmick so i can share them to facebook. One thing i've noticed is, when it changes channels, there's cute little mini-mini-games, basically interactive loading pages, like you're a bowling pin and a giant bowling ball tries to knock you down or a big dragon is holding you and licks you.

Here's the kicker, to get the achievements in this one, you need to download the new games, which, when prompted aren't available yet. I go to download them and probably pay for them when they are finally available and THEN you can unlock achievements, but until they let us actually buy the new mini-games, we're pretty much stuck with an updated version of HAT, which is pretty neat.

Unless you have little kids who liked the original game or you're just an achievement hunter, you can probably pass on this one. My 3 year likes it and it can keep him outta my hair for a little while, but not really something i'd buy if i didn't have him.

So, it's free, but you have to pay cash (msp) to get certain achievements in the game?

No. It's definitely free at least til the 31st of this month from what I've read. Make sure you download the full version, not the trial.

You have to make it a full version by hitting the "unlock full version" in the top right where you select channels and then you'll have all the channels unscrambled and thus be able to earn achievements*

Unlock key

There is an unlock key on the add ons page. It is listed as Kinect Party as well, but it is only 108kb. Download that and all the new channels unlock

This didn't work for me but the post below you is what I did as well. It's a small additional download.

I can confirm that this does work as well.

Also can confirm this. My younger brother was confused why he wasn't getting achievements so I did that and presto! I can see a load of complaints by people downloading it and then thinking they've been conned by microsoft.

Dude, my 3 year old daughter had a blast popping balloons and dancing like a dubstep robot. And she slept like a rock afterwards! Best free game in a long time!
