Is this game actually free?

I saw that this is listed as "Free" on Windows 8, but there are quite a few of the games that are listed as free, but are demos that require you to spend real money to unlock the higher levels and complete all of the achievements.

I don't want to bother testing it if I'll unlock some achievements on my gamer card but can't complete it without further funding.

Also, does anyone know of a list of the Windows 8 games that are actually free?

I believe when it first came out the game itself was free since it didn't have xbox enabled with it. The next update however, fixed that and added achievements along with a price. However, if you installed it before that happened then you were able to get the achievements free. Now I don't think there is a way to get it free anymore. I actually didn't download it when it was free so i had to pay the $2 (i believe). I found it to be a fun game and worth the small price tag. Plus the achievements are really easy too.

As for a list of actual free games, there might be a thread in the W8 section, so I'd take a look there.

A few off the top of my head would be:

Monsters Love Candy - Note: Its basically a freemium game and if you want to complete it faster you need to spend money.

Samurai vs. Zombies - again another freemium

Solitaire Collection - free and easy 40gs

Taptiles - free 200gs

Shuffle Party - free 200gs

Jetpack Joyride - free 200

Mahjong - 25gs

Minesweeper - 50gs

Those are the ones I can think of right now. Hope this helps.
