Ratings and Reviews
AI has no idea how to play
I love spades and the app itself is pretty good. That’s the only reason it gets 2 stars. You can customize quite a bit and the app has never crashed on me. Ads are often but the are super short which is nice. I’ve never played multiple mode so I can’t speak to that. But in solo mode, your AI partner is so frustrating! First of all they don’t know how to bid, my partner ALWAYS bids way too low to the point I just automatically add 1 or 2 to my bid. I don’t understand how the AI partner is constantly stealing my tricks. Like it makes absolutely no sense. Say I throw an ace of hearts, the computer partner will throw a spade when they are still playing other suites. This happens at least once a game. Rarely they’ll play a good round that actually makes sense but that is RARE. Anyone who plays spades knows that having a stupid partner is the worst and when it’s an AI it just so frustrating. Even more frustrating is that the other team of computers never seem to screw each other over like your partner will. The other team of AI also renege ALL. THE. TIME. It’s like whoever made this game had never heard of reneging. And there’s no way to call your opponents out on a renege. That’s one thing the developers should add. I’m not sure why I still use this app but I’m going to look for a different spades app.
the game itself is great and addicting but it gets very aggravating because the partners in solo mode are absolute idiots. I bid nil and invariable my partner leads a two or four. the opponents bid nil, and my partner plays his highest cards. he plays a higher card or overtrumps my tricks when he plays last and then we don't make our bid because he has used up his good cards to take tricks I would have won. he always plays his highest trump the first chance he gets, even when he is the last player and a low trump would win the trick. doesn't matter if you configure your partner conservative, regular, or aggressive--they don't know how to play the game!
UPDATE: This game gets NO stars! Rather than improving the AI partners, they get worse and worse. They have no idea how to bid--often bid 1 with 2-3 aces--and seem to think the goal of the game is to get as many bags as possible. They wait until the other team makes it's bid, then grab as many extra tricks as possible. Can't make it through a whole game without losing at least 100 points for 10 bags. I'm so aggravated by the poor play, this app will be uninstalled as soon as this review appears.
I don't play multiplayer. I just play the computer. And I'm a bit thrown at how well the opponent AI plays yet my partner is a complete moron. If I set my partner to conservative it regularly underbids and we accumulate bags quickly. If I set my partner to normal it regularly overbids and can't catch its bid. In either case when our bid is met it won't throw off to force the other team to catch bags. The worst is it's behavior when I bid nil. I just played a game where I bid blind nil in a desperate attempt to win the game and I watched the cards very carefully. We were just a few tricks into the hand when my partner led with a 7 of diamonds and set me as I had an 8 as my lowest. I had already played a lower diamond in response to my opponent and my partner covered it. If my partner had no other diamonds it should have played a higher card in another suit (which it had). But just a few tricks later it played both a 10 and Jack of diamonds. If I played like that in real games I would never find a partner that would want to play with me. It's still the best one out there so far but it doesn't set a very high bar.
