It’s a whopping 132MB file so will only download over WiFi, which is no bad thing, and we’ve found that it will download and play just as well on the Nokia Lumia 820 running Windows Phone 8, as well as the Nokia Lumia 800 running Windows Phone 7.5. It will also play on the Nokia Lumia 610 with ease.

At the same time, Mirror’s Edge has also come in for an update, taking it to version We’ve no information at this time as to how long Mirror’s Edge will be free for, so we suggest you get hold of it now while you can.

    Really wanted this app, but didn’t really want to stump up the money (Not like it was expensive) but I had already played, and paid for the iPad and Xbox equivalent. Really good game and buttery smooth on my 820. Surprised and Glad to see it free!

    Sorry to hear that, we’ve checked it on a number of devices here and all show it as free – worth a re-start?
