  • I just hope this won't destroy my saves. I updated Cut the Rope once, lost all my game progress...
  • I had the same thing. I just completed the game 2 weeks before the update...
    They really need an option to save the savegames in the cloud...
  • I also had this problem. May have been tolerable if it added new levels.
  • Angry birds go for 512 MB Ram WP??

  • I really hope this update fixes the issues I've had with Star Wars 2 - after the first flung bird, the game would slow down to like 1 frame per 20 seconds, then it might or might not freeze thereafter.  Unplayable!

  • I wish they would just hurry up Rovio Accounts. At the moment I have a few Angry Bird games on my phone and a few on my tablet but with no overlap as I don't want to be replaying levels.
  • I wish they make all the angry birds game free for a day on Christmas as a gift to all WP users. That would really be awesome ain't it ?
  • Last time I updated a Angry Birds game I lost my saves, same for Cut the Rope.
  • I would still have these games if all my progress wasn't lost when changing phones :'( kind of annoying to have to start over....
  • They should have a system where your progress is saved thru your Microsoft least until they eventually let us save apps on the SD Card or maybe thru skydrive...
