Ratings and Reviews
Play and layout smooth and fast
I grew up with Spite and Malice and it's always been one of my favorites. I've been waiting for years for an electronic version so was thrilled when I found this a few years ago. The updates have improved the game and this version is wonderful The game play is one of the best out there of any card game, the graphics pretty and the movement smooth and fast. The option to play with peers over the network works really well and I've used it often.
My complaints are:
1. Even at the hardest level, the computer makes stupid mistakes like playing from the discard piles when the same number is on the pile to get rid of.
2. The new goals thing is annoying and I though it was an ad at first. I want the option to turn it off.
3. I'd like more options to customize the patterns on the cards and table. I'm getting really tried of these.
This is one of the few apps I've actually purchased because I play it so much, every time I play a game on my phone it's the first or second I choose, and I want to support the developers. I highly recommend this fun and addictive game.
Large amount of strategy
A large amount of strategy is able to be utilized in this simple game. The decision making to be able to block your phone opponent from playing their hole card is predicated upon looking at all the options that you have present and future, the options your phone opponent has present and future, the unknown vagarities of what card may turn up in your own hole pile, the possibilities of what my turn up in the opponent hole pile, can you go on a run before the opponent goes on a run, how long may the runs last, etc. Also, don’t make a false step in choosing where to place a card because the game does not allow you to go back and fix a mistake.
This is a new game to me and I am enjoying it so far. I would have liked a bit more instruction in the beginning or a practice session. However, after much trial and error and losing way too many times, I think I may have the hang of it. I am winning a few more games and I can see improvement in my skill. I will definitely come back to this one again! I like the art work and the sound effects. Good work developers!
Update...I’ve been playing daily and have become pretty much addicted! Thanks for a fun but challenging game that can be played over and over
