I'm sure that eyes will be raised at the relatively high price of the game ($6.99 / £5.49) although this is a similar price to the Android and iOS versions of the game. What might be more of an issue is the size of the game. Although it is listed as 773MB, you'll need to have around 5GB of free space on your internal drive to install the game.

You can download the game (over Wi-fi!) from the Windows Store now.
