Hours of addictive fun, however...
I downloaded this game at the suggestion of my girlfriend who was spending hours playing it and having a blast. By the way she's introduced me to my two favorite free games, the other one being Ruzzle. The advertising is not too obtrusive at all, after a while you get very good at it and are almost able to predict the card that's going to come out. That can be fun. Whether on the train, or on the airplane, or waiting for your flight, or on a bus ride - God forbid, this'll give you something to do for much of that time. Definitely a must download. The only thing missing? Friends, tournaments, stats and chat! I should be able to connect with the actual people that I play spades with at the barbecue, and play with them online to continue the fun of the game. If they add this to the game, it will make this the ultimate absolute all-time best spades game ever made. And I'm not kidding! I'm saving the last star for that part.
Was great until the last update
I have been using this app as well as many other Optime apps for years and they have always been great until the recent introduction of ads. I understand the need for the funding the ads generate and would be perfectly fine with it, but the ads do not work correctly. The ads do not appear on screen, but pop up in the background in the middle of a game and I can hear them while I am playing the game. When this happens, the app slows down to a crawl and eventually just crashes and loses the game progress. It just seems they tried to push out the new version with ads before they had worked out all the bugs.
I just tried to play 3 different games and never got past 250 points because the game would crash and when I reopened the app, my progress was gone and I had to start a new game. Before the ads were introduced it was a great, 5 star app, but now it has dropped down to 1 star since I can’t even finish a game without it crashing. I thought about upgrading to add free, but I read other reviews saying there are issues with that version too. There are too many options for spades games on the App Store to have to deal with these types of issues so I guess I will be on the lookout for a new spades app.
I like that this game is against computers, so it is super fast and I don’t have to find a table or people to play with. The pictures of the people are pretty simple, and sometimes my partner does some pretty stupid moves for a computer - but that makes it more realistic and unpredictable. I wish you could double tap a card to play it instead of having to tap the card and then tap the playing area. And I definitely don’t like that the cards are played in a line rather than by the person who played them. Overall pretty decent. Hard to stop playing because the next game starts right away.
