The worst of the bad games
I have played all of this developers games and this is clearly the worst of all of them. The new fleecing of America is your apps and this developer is strictly about the $$$. You can go nil back to back and or even shoot the moon two hands in a row in this developers world. It’s all about others loosing at the table! The algorithm is pre set at the start of the first hand to get the losers and get the $$$.
Back to back loners, no problem with this developer. Maybe your on the loser side and get 5 or 10 hands in a row of 9’s, 10’s, or queens. If it’s going to squeeze out another dime, it’s all good with these guys. All these apps make gambling at the casino’s look like a child games. The real money is in these apps. Just another company fleecing America with pre determined losers. Hope people start deleting these apps and stop feeding these companies pockets. I figured it out and hit delete.

Having a Partner is more like opponent
Overall the game play is fine and it does what it is supposed to. There are no lags. I like to play solo (AI version). So this review is based on that. I have the free version and honestly couldn’t find a paid version, if that would make a difference. The biggest, most frustrating part of the game is your team player. It is like you are playing alone but have to also suffer poor decisions of partner. Here are some examples.
1. Going nil: I went nil. Yes it was a stretch, but it was just a game. My partner also went nil. So that means there is no way we could cover for each other.
2. Covering Partner: In real play, a partner would cover their teammate if it were a possible move. I went Nil. A suit was called that I had to play and it was only a mid range number. My partner, who was NOT going nil, threw a card less than mine so I won the trick cost our team 100 points. Turns out, they had the Ace of that suit.
I could go on with examples like this where having a partner was worse than being a single player. Even if I could sort of get the first scenario, the second made no sense. If it was smart enough to know it didn’t have to over play because the partner had it, it should be smart enough to know the bid was nil and it shouldn’t use that tactic. Every time I play I get frustrated for those reasons. I got over the fact you couldn’t count on the partner. But final straw was when it bid nil when I already had.

Thank you for taking the time to share this experience, and we are sorry for the frustration. The AI player is designed to make the best play it can, but it sometimes doesn’t see the same moves that a human would. We are always working on tweaking and improving the performance of the players, and we really appreciate you sharing this example of areas we can focus on. The Spades++ app is a paid version of the game that is the same as the free version but doesn't include ads.
Too many foul players
Edit: 7/1/20 Developers did respond to my review and thanks for taking the time to do that. One easy fix you could do that would greatly benefit everyone who plays in rated multiplayer is eliminating the 13 bid.
Original review below with grammatical corrections.
This is a decent app for spades, and I appreciate the clean aesthetic without a lot of extra clutter on the screen BUT players will bid 13 if you make a mistake, or abandon the game, and even though they penalize the player who leaves, you still lose points on your rating when you lose. I’ve seen players completely sabotage games out of spite if they get set or get a book when the bid nil. It looks like you can’t get above 1700 points without spending money on more coins or the game will give you hands that are guaranteed to lose unless someone on the other team makes a serious mistake. And if your partner leaves and you decide to play with the pc partner, the ai will sabotage you too - by overbidding/underbidding. I recently had “shark” as a partner in multiplayer when it bid nil and proceeded to cut with a spade to win a book in a game I could’ve won. They need to fix that ASAP. It’s not fair to be punished for staying in the game when your partner quits or losing points because they left or sabotaged your game.
