A great and trouble free app
I enjoy playing solitaire and have never had a problem with the app until a week or so ago when it would crash whenver I changed or customized the background with personal pictures. I didn’t know if I had done something in error and caused the problem or what. I tried restarting and changed settings to no avail. The only thing I could of doing was to keep sending the crash reports hoping it would be fixed but 2 days went by and nothing was fixed. Work finally demanded my full attention and time making me forget the app until today. After restarting my Windows for a security update I noticed this app had been updated 3 days before and found a short message acknowledging there having been a problem but was now fixed. I appreciate that extra step and am grateful this app is working as great and trouble free as ever.
Not really up to snuff
I use this because the offerings are limited, bnut it’s not up to the one on Windows. I’ve found several parameters that are necessary before a game (in any app) has any chance of being completed, so I tend to keep restarting the game until I see the right sorts of setup. That’s not guarantee of success, of course, but keeps me from wasting time with sure losers. The issue is that many times, at least one of the cards does not change when a game is restarted. The Queen of Herats in the third position, for example, will be the same after the restart. I also note that, in several hundred games, I have hit 3000 points only twice, and it doesn’t seem to matter how long or short the game is — virtually every one is scored between 2800 and 2970. Note that I do hold the top two scores on the game on a Windows box where I sometimes volunteer, so the scoring here is very odd and frustrating. Finally, I find it bothersome to have to now resize the screen every time I turn the thing on. It ought to hold my settings
Extremely good though I have 1 tiny issue I wish the developers would fix
Ok, so this is easily the best solitaire game you can get for Windows. Large selection of games, very well setup program, total delight to use. Now for my one small little issue. When you turn off scoring, it still shows a score at the end of the game if you win. I wish the developers would make it to where when you turn off scoring, you see no score at all, anywhere in the game. It’s a very small thing for me, something that really is just a nag because I don’t play solitaire to attain a score, I like to just take my time and enjoy the game. So that’s why I’d like to see that one small thing changed, just for us to like solitaire because solitaire is awesome, no score needed. Otherwise, thanks for the awesome game devs.
Mostly good, but one serious flaw
Graphics, abitlty to customize, all good, even though I thought the “shuffling” somewhat less than random. I’ve had this for almost a year now, and finally discovered the one flaw that sort of ruins the game, or maybe not depending on your point of view. The “Stat” system. First I noticed that sometimes you win a game, and it doesn’t go on the “Winning streak” section. But then, I discovered the flaw in the ability to restart a game, and the fact that games not “started” are not counted at all in the stats. When you know a game is lost, instead of hitting ‘redeal’, restart the game, then redeal. The loss is not counted. I completely reset my stats, and now have 30 starts, 30 wins, no losses. Considering that the score doesn’t always count my wins, and therefore cheats me, I think it’s ony fair to cheat right back, right? Sort of kills the challenge of doing it proper, and now I must once again go searching for a game that works the way it should, and keeps proper Statistics.
Nice, but missing some features
Pros: You can quit the app in the middle of a game and when you start it back up the game comes back up where you left it. This solved one of the things that has really bothered me about other solitare apps, which is finding you need to reboot or something and this causes you to lose a game.
Cons: I have only played Freecell, but their version of this game is missing some features that make it a bit annoying to play. First, you are limited in the size of a stack of cards based on the number of open freecell spaces, even if there are empty spaces in the tableau. So moving a large stack of cards can take a large number of unnecessary moves. Second, when you click on a card so that the game decides where to move it, the game often seems to pick the worst possible move. It will typically not move the card to a stack, moving it to an open cell in the tableau, which is pretty much never the right move. Or it will move the card to the foundation, when you need the card to remain in the tableau so you can use it to build a stack. These behaviors need to be fixed. I find myself reversing most of the automatic moves using undo.
