Asphalt 7: Heat file size

Hi all,

 

I bought Asphalt 7: Heat on my HTC 8X earlier and at first it didn't want to download; it said I had insufficient space. It turned out I had 4gb free but with some determination I managed to get it to download via a 3rd party Windows 8 app. Any idea why it might have tried to stop me downloading it? Has anyone else experienced this issue? 

 

And why is the game so big? It's almost 1gb, which seems much too large for a phone app, and I'm pretty sure it's not that big on other platforms. Is it possible that a future update might help to reduce the file size of the game? At the moment it's a bit ridiculous.

 

Cheers for any opinions and advice,

You can add your thoughts there. The short version is - this OTHER STORAGE is a bit of painful/unresolved situation. There are dozens of workarounds but no fix as such.
