Good solitaire

I like this game; both challenging and frustrating at the same time.
Overall rewarding.
Still, I wish my two scores can be combined to properly reflect my winnings and length of time playing.

Rewrote my Review Get this game.

I wrote a review a month or so ago that someone, somehow had compromised my scoring for this game. Still don't really know how it happened, but eggheads might have figured out away to block me so that I could be out scored. Frankly, I hope Game Center is on top of the fact that this type of situation should not occur. Both my iPad and my iPhone scoring were blocked for about 2-3 weeks, until I was out scored by exactly 300 points and then suddenly both started scoring again. Just fishy. It's working properly now and that's a GREAT thing, because this is the very best game in the WORLD if you love working puzzles. I literally work it in my sleep now. Once you adopt a few strategic (look down the road, find you pairs) patterns... you're rollin'! My brain is active, my nerves (when stressed) get calmed down, and hey, it's great for the ego to climb that ladder! I greatly appreciate the developer for creating such a satisfying, addictive game. Buy the ad free one and see what I mean!

Ads in a paid game? Unacceptable!

Update 2022
This has been my go-to games for years ever since I bought the initial version. There was a problem with end-of-game notifications, but that had been resolved. Then today I open the game and see a notice to download an update to get "improved performance." Bull! What I got was a downgrade to a version with ads. The ads appear as a large banner on the bottom of the screen effectively make the board appear smaller. I fully accepted the difficulties of the game - no hints, no undo, etc - but reducing the board size to show banner ads is totally unacceptable. This should be a 5-star game, but lose the ads.
