An Addictive Game That Never Gets Old!!
We discovered ABC Solitaire last fall and is the only game that we play every single day. It seems we are easily bored with game apps on the iPad because we play them for awhile but will then lose interest relatively quickly. Not so with ABC Solitaire. In fact, after a few months I insisted my husband load it on his own iPad because every time I set my iPad down, it was immediately in his hands and he was playing it — and that's saying a lot because he's an anti-game person. It's literally the only game he plays.
ABC Solitaire remains challenging because no two games are ever the same and it is irritatingly addicting! With a few minor tweaks I would easily rate this a five-star game. It's frustrating that the game clock doesn't pause if you have to step away from a game in progress, there are far too many buttons to press to continue a game once paused, and it's exceedingly frustrating when you have bonus hints stored and they get taken away from you when the game is inactive for any more than a short time. It seems like these would be easy fixes. The game's developer told me the clock did not stop to thwart fraud on the leader board. Perhaps I don't know the nuances of cheating, but I can't see how the constantly-ticking time clock foils cheaters.
I have yet to find another game app that comes anywhere even close to the addiction level of this game. It's mentally challenging and wholly engaging.
It's working yet
It's fun when it works
At first I really didn't like this game! As others have said, the instructions are not clear and I felt like I would never get it. This game does allow you to use a different part of your brain to solve each puzzle, and as I win more I feel like I'm gaining brain power. Pause button would be nice. Also, I thought for a while that when I pressed "end" and saw the Please Try Again tiles lit up, that there was a way to keep playing by going after those tiles...please, make directions clearer!
