Unfortunately the only way to get the game on your Zune HD, is by downloading the developer kit, as Microsoft has locked the Zune to free, first party apps at the moment.

Lets hope Microsoft opens up the platform soon, as this could be great news for Zune HD owners and Microsoft if game developers can transfer existing games to the Zune HD so easily and quickly.
