Very much enjoy this app
I have been using this app for a long time. It works well and smooth. Stats are just enough without being overwhelming. I have spent many hours on several of the different games. Still come back to my favorites. Upgrades seem to always work well. Different looks and card sets let you change the look so it stays fresh. All in all great game.
Fun for a couple of years
Depending on how much you play this game is only good for a couple of years. They are a terrific couple of years, and that’s why I gave it three stars, but then the game falls apart.
For quite a while now the game has been doing funny things regarding shuffling. The most repeatable aspect is having the same card turn up on consecutive flips of the pile; you turn over 3 of clubs, 3 of clubs, for instance. The first few times I figured “random chance” but it quickly reached the point where this happened every game. In the last week the there have now been TWO sets of consecutive cards in every deck and in two of the last three games I played they have come back-to-back (5 of clubs, 5 of clubs, 5 of spades, 5 of spades flipped over, actual example).
There are some other things going on that can’t be attributed to chance but this one is the most noticeable. The game can still be fun but you do feel like it’s being manipulated. To be honest, I keep playing just to see how bad it gets. Is the shuffling algorithm deteriorating? Have I run out of prerecorded deck shuffles? I don’t know how the game is written so I can’t say but I tried deleting the game last week and then downloading it again and, as recorded above, the game just got worse.
So, fun while it lasted. Maybe I can find another game or maybe Rick Holtzgraf will fulfill my dream and rewrite Solitaire ‘Til Dawn for iOS. Oh, well.
Hours of distraction!
I already submitted a review from the app on my phone, but the app is asking me for one again from my tablet. Anyway, lots of fun, lots of games for variety too! My only complaint is that my gut is the deals are weighted on Klondike-3 so that they are not truly random. There are far too many times that a streak, either good or bad, but mostly bad, go on for an extremely long sequence of games. It seems unlikely that with truly random deals that there would be 30+ losses in a row. Otherwise, much fun and nicely packaged!!
