SEGA’s Sonic CD is now available for free for Nokia Lumia phone owners
Quote from WP Central:
"Sonic CD is a remake of the classic 16-bit Sega CD game. It plays much like other Sega Genesis Sonic games, though the focus on exploration has increased thanks to much larger levels and new gameplay mechanics.Sonic’s nemesis Dr. Eggman has traveled back in time to change the history of Little Planet and gain its power. Sonic must jump back and forth between past, present, and future versions of seven different zones, destroying Eggman’s robot teleporters and eventually doing battle with a robotic version of himself: metal Sonic.

The Windows Phone version of Sonic CD features a ton of improvements over the classic game, including true widescreen visuals, two selectable soundtracks, and the newly-playable sidekick Tails. All told, we consider this one of the very best games of 2012."

Sega’s Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition, or just SMB2:SE
Quote from WP Central:
"SMB2:SE is a significant bump in quality over the original Super Monkey Ball though some may find the controls a bit challenging and the graphics a bit dated. The Xbox version does garner 4 out of 5 stars, which is actually pretty decent though.

The game’s conceit is simple: roll a monkey around in a clear ball through mazes while picking up bananas. Makes total sense to us. You even get to choose your chimp for that custom feel. As a nice throwback to arcade games of past, SMB2:SE does work well on mobile as a good time waster with fun and challenging levels. Plus it’s kind of adorable and so darn chipper it’s hard not to like it.:

    Not Windows store?

      Windows Phone

    search for Sonic in the marketplace on your phone. Should come up with 2 results. One is free from nokia.

    •  

      Bing Vision with the QR code ;) opens the marketplace directly

  •  

    I dont have a windows phone, but I showed it to my cousin and he said its probably the best deal ozbargain has given him… including $2 whopper and small fries.

    probably worth a +1

  •  

    Amazing Deal! Sonic CD is normally 5.49, and Super Monkey Ball is normally 3.49. Shame they arent Xbox titles though. :\

  •  

    got SMB2-SE using the QR code. Cheers :)

    Wooh!!

    Just to clarify, the free version of Sonic CD isn't meant to have XBOX achievements, that stuff has been stripped out. Someone didn't change the pic and remove the banner. Posting this just to avoid confusion on why an xbox game appears in the other games section.

    Hmm my Lumia 920 tells my it's not available on my device

    •  

      My lumia 920 has no problem. I used the QR code to download.

      •  

        What carrier did you get the phone from? I checked if there were any updates for my phone (takes ages to find out?) and it turns out there is, will download when I get home as it needs wifi)

        •  

          I'm on TPG, which is Optus network, both games were downloaded fine last night.
          Will check if there's andy OS update tonight.

          What carrier did u get your phone from and what model is it?

        •  

          Bought unlocked from Harvey Norman. TPG Mobile. Nokia Lumia 920.

    •  

      This is what I get:

      App not Available
      this might be because your phone software needs to be updated, the app is exclusive to a different mobile provider, or the app is not available in your country/region

      Lumia 920 from Telstra

      •  

        same - used the QR - found the Sonic free - but same error - unlocked Lumia 800

      •  

        I get the same fro Sonic…Not available. Using Lumia 920 from Telstra. Can see the Super Monkey Ball one though :)

        Edit: Ok, SMB was there earlier….not available now apparently :/

        •  

          I think the lumia 920 on Telstra is going through a software update. I'm downloading the update now. will try these again after and see if the error is still there

      •  

        Says the same thing for me. i have a lumia 900 on optus though

      •  

        Updated the software, still the same issue :/

      •  

        "This application is not available for your device"
        Nokia Lumia 800
        Same error message for both applications.

        Maybe the OP should mention where he found the "Free" apps that few Nokia Lumia owners can actually obtain.

  •  

    Not working on my 920. dammit, monkey ball
