    just came out yesterday i think. you're going to need a lot of free space on your phone though. at least 1 gig free.

    wasnt sure how it was going to run. i downloaded it on a newer but lower end Anrdoid tablet a few months ago and it wasnt pretty, but i figured id take the chance and download it onto the Volt.

    it runs well, the phone didnt get hot after a half an hour of play, and everything seems to work great input-wise.

    they definitely downgraded a lot of the graphical effects for phones (which is a good thing), but it still looks and sounds great. definitely a game worth checking out if you have the room!

    everything works really well. way better than i would've expected on this phone with the screen size and res.

    it uses pretty minimal data as well. it will drain the battery a good bit, but still less than damn cell standby. definitely worth checking out if you have the room. wont run from SD though.

    Installed it and it runs OK, but there are laggy moments and loading is slow. Might be due to having parts of it on the SD card, although with a class 10 card I wouldn't think it would be that bad.

    i think it must be. it works very smoothly for the most part running it from the internal memory. some very slight hitches here and there, but not bad at all. it only takes about 20-25 seconds to load the game for me, but then everything loads fast.

    (not sure if its my imagination but some things seem slightly more laggy since the recent update. really hope thats not the case. i have been playing on pc again though, so maybe thats affecting my perception)

    the app does take up some serious room though. i actually had to uninstall the app and re-install it recently because the trying to update it took up too much room.

    Played around with stuff and now have the game completely on SD. I think it was more an issue of having it split up between internal and external storage.

    Also, running OC kernel and swap it runs almost completely smooth.
