I just wanted to say that I have the same battery issue. It gets really hot when I play for a while, and I've even killed the battery while playing while plugged in.
I have an HTC Eris (which I believe is also known as the Desire C), and do use a task killer. I also try to keep all of the other battery draining things (wifi, gps, other random aps and widgets, etc) off. Generally speaking I'll have the phone stuff, clock, calendar and my email stuff running but that is about it. (I know that the email stuff is draining as well, but the phone is for work and the email access is the reason I got it.)
At any rate, just wanted to say it's not just a one shot thing.
Also-----GREAT GAME! I'm so addicted and have been since the first version

Regarding the battery issue, I am still looking into this. I have a few leads that I am looking into; hopefully I will figure out the cause of this soon.
