Nice list, but I think you meant to put November 2012 for Shark Dash and Fruit Ninja.

My bad, it should have been in the FREE for a limited time category. Thank you as well.

I do intend to keep this updated. But of course, it would be better if others will also share too if ever they find out new releases or glitches like Crash Course Go (which I missed, hence this thread).

Right. I was just not sure myself, thinking maybe most of the achievements needed you to pay (like cut the rope).

For real? You're the second person to mention that, though it looks fine to me. I'll make a change. Let me know if it gets any better.

Now it sticks a bit out on the right side, but much better compared to the first time where it wouldn't even fit in the screen.

Wrong forum mate. This is for Windows8 (Tablets/PC) not Windows Phone 8.

This has already been mentioned in the WP8 forum and is worth noting is for Lumia devices only!

I would personally bring the ban hammer down on these folks. Not just the account they make, but their ip address so they can never shatter our dreams of a useful post again!

I stuck the thread for you. One suggestion might be to change the heading on the quoted section to "Previously Free" as the current title is a bit ambiguous on if they are currently free or not.

The confirm section was true. Both of those games had trials with achievements unlocked. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case as the games have been updated. I got all the free achievements in Rocket Riot but my CCG game glitched someone before I could get them all (one of the achievements popped in game but never stuck). Had to reinstall and by that time the trial exploit was patched. I paid.

I guess taptiles could be moved to the partially free section as it now has paid dlc. Very pricy at that. 15g extra I think for like $10. Can't remember but now only 200/215 g is free.

EDIT: Also The Gunstringer has permanently been reduced to FREE.

Also, MS Flight, Tinker and AOE Online are not downloadable anymore due to the GFWL store closing down, so if you haven't dl'ed them you are out of luck.
