Not all the Xbox enabled games currently work on Windows Phone 8. There are about 20 of them that dont work. Feed Me Oil is one of them. Basically for some reason or another they do not work on the new OS. There is a small chance that they will be updated in the future to work on WP8, but it may take a long while or never happen and will be on a game-by-game basis.

The only way to play those games currently is to have a WP7 device. I know it is lame, but WP8 is a big change and not everything was originally deigned to carry over.

Currently a downside to WP8. You get two extra games (with achievements - the Angry Birds Space/Star Wars games), but lose 20 other games. And also new releases come out from time to time that dont work on WP8. Example last weeks Ken Ken (although I did download it and it seemed to work fine on my 920), it was removed from the marketplace shortly after and gives "not compatible on device" warning.

Lets hope they fix their mistakes. I have WP7 and WP8 but I'm missing out on 3 Nokia exclusives.
