Ratings and Reviews
Have spent many hours enjoying the challenge of this game. I select the most difficult level. I would suggest that it have a “do over” feature that would let you see what would have happened if you had played a different card. Also, some times when trying to “run” the hand It is clear that the last 5-8 cards are all winners, but you still have to make 5-8 more plays before starting the next hand. This a waste of time and I know the computer can easily analyze all the remaining cards and hands and put the number of hearts on each account as if the hand had been played out. It could just state the hand is “conceded” and flash up “deal next hand.” Just my thoughts!
Hard mode counts cards
I thought that 1 star reviewer reporting card counting was being salty but it HAS to be the case. I never leave reviews but I came back to see if anyone else noticed the cheating and I’m not the only one! I’ve played dozens of times and I can win maybe one out of 20 games? You can dismiss this review and just assume that I’m a bad player lol but I don’t think I am, I love playing hearts with friends and spades and am an avid strategic board gamer. The hands that are played by the AI have to be based on what’s in your hand - there’s no way for a player or AI to be “lucky” that often where they know exactly what to play and exactly when, unless it’s counting cards and all 3 AI know what’s in your hand (working together, which of course it will - its all the same AI). Im all for challenging, and this is essentially a game
of awareness of what cards are out there, but the AI shouldn’t know “who” has which cards and it essentially does - so it can set you whenever it wants. That doesn’t make the game is hard, just unfair. Perhaps it should just be unfair mode (other games have that mode lol). It should be making educated guesses based of unknown variables per player/AI, not as a collective team that knows your hand.
As a positive, the UI of the game is pretty good. I just wish I could get my $1.99 back.
Finally deleted this app from my phone
I had this app on my phone for years and played the game nearly every day. There always were things about it I didn’t like. As many others have reported, I played this version of the game long enough to recognize that it is rigged against you. You can have the lowest score, yet other players, when given the opportunity to dump the Q of spades on a higher scoring player will choose to hang onto it and dump it on you in a later hand, at the detriment of their own game. It happens time and again and completely illogical and counter to serious human game play. Even so, it is particularly inept at preventing the human player or others from shooting the moon. This can even things out sometimes for the human. Another unrealistic element is that I don’t worry about the cards I’m passing and what it tells the receiving player about my likely strategy for the round. All that said, I still enjoyed playing the game UNTIL the annoying ads became unbearable with the addition of audio. I played this game almost exclusively as a way to help me fall asleep. No more, after it woke my spouse twice. Now it is gone from my phone.
