Spades Card Classic 4+
Become a Spades pro!
Games By Post LLC
Designed for iPad
Improve your skills and become a Spades pro! Spades Card Classic has three different difficulty settings so you can work your way up to playing like a pro. You can also play either as an individual or in partners mode. Statistics are kept for wins and losses so you can see yourself improving over time. All cards are dealt randomly to all players, so the difference between the Easy, Standard, and Pro computer players is in how they choose to play the cards they are dealt. A hint button can be turned on to help you see how the computer Pro player would handle your current situation.
Ratings and Reviews
Great and quick
The game is very addictive and the app is so clean and moves quick HOWEVER, I’ve noticed after having this app for a while a pattern of fixed games contrary to another persons opinion I saw.
Pay attention to how the games player Charlotte VERY OFTEN BID 0 BOOKS and watch how you’ll see that computerized player CONSTANTLY AND PURPOSELY THROWING AWAY HIGH CARDS THAT ARE BOOKS BASICALLY SABOTAGING THEIR HAND TO NOT GET BOOKS AND GET PENALIZED 100 pts but the live player (me) can actually NOT HAVE BOOKS AND THE GAME WILL SET IT UP WHERE I FOR EXAMPLE LEAD OUT WITH A 7 OF CLOVES AND THE COMPUTERIZED PLAYERS WILL PLAY A 2, 3, and 5 OF CLOVES WHICH WOULD CAUSE ME TO WIN A BOOK AND GET SETBACK -100 PTS. BUT WAIT😱 AFTER THEY SET ME UP TO WIN WITH A MISLEY 7 OF CLOVERS THESE COMPUTERIZED PLAYERS WILL LATER IN THAT SAME HAND START PLAYING THEIR HIGH CLOVERS. That’s not right and very bias and needs to be fixed especially if the developers start to make this a bigger game where real money is involved
My bot partner has trumped my ace with a spade multiple times. This was the last straw. I deleted the app right after this happened. Human players would never do that during normal game play. No other spades game app does this!!!
Also, cards are not dealt randomly. My partner and I are outbid and outscored almost every round. It is not a difference of 10 points, either. It is a difference of 20-40 points every round. After we have two successful nil bids, we are still behind by 50 points! Usually, when we bid nil, our opponents will get great cards and total 90 or 100, which is a glaring example because when they bid nil, my partner and I don’t get great cards and usually only score 60-70. I only have two options to try to win, set my opponent or sandbag to penalize them.
Also, bots do not adapt. They are predictable every single round. Humans play different when they are covering a nil bid. No human player would ever lead out with a 2 or 3 unless they knew their partner had exhausted that suit. I have been burned several times and other reviews have mentioned the same issue. Plus, saving spades and facecards to the very end instead of using them to make your bid is backwards but that’s what my bot partner does and I actually have to work to prevent extra books. I often lead out with spades to try to exhaust them. I am done.
Partner plays against you
I really liked this app the first couple of weeks playing , now NOT SO MUCH! It’s pretty bad when your partner plays against you! When I’m playing nil and the opponent plays a low card my partner will throw his highest spade instead of his lowest. By the time you need a high spade played, he doesn’t have one! Totally stupid!!! If this were a real game, by time I stopped cursing at the idiot they’d leave. Lol. Also if the Ace was already played and I have the king, he’ll trump it, and I fall short! You never trump your partners point if you can’t make up the point!!
The other downside is there is an add between EVERY hand. That’s excessive! Last game I had that wasn’t the case!
One the good side you get two different strategies between Standard and Pro. I beat the Pro players more then the Standard players. The standard players play dirty. It’s easier to accumulate bags playing them then it is to try to get the most points per hand…If that makes any sense to you!??
So bottom line for me…I really like to play Spades, so I’ll keep looking for the perfect game; but from what I can tell there isn’t one out there! So my dog will just have to deal with me cursing and yelling at my phone a few more weeks! Thanks for reading! Good luck to all!
