One of the first card games I learned was Solitaire. One of the first games I ever played on my Windows computer was Solitaire. Today I am looking at a new version of the game for mobile from Mobility Ware.
Solitaire is a free game that is supported with ads. When you are playing, it is ad free; the ads only appear within the settings menu or in between games. Overall this is a nice way to have ads but not interfere with your game play. The game works well on both small and large screen devices.
When you first open the app, you immediately start a new game or continue your last one. To move a card you can drag or tap it. The game interface is clean and easy to use/follow. For each game, the app keeps track on the Score, Time and Number of Moves. There is also a hint button you can use, but who wants a hint? Thankfully there is an undo button also. I have only used it once or twice.
When you are ready to start a new game, you can choose from:
- Random Deal
- Winning Deal
- Daily Challenge
- Replay Deal
I really enjoyed this version of Solitaire. I was able to jump right in and knock out a few games before my meeting. These types of games (relaxing ones) are a nice change of pace from all the RPG or PvP games out there today.
As I mentioned, the game interfere is clean and minimal, but do not let that fool you, this game has a ton of options. When you click on the settings button, you will see everything under the hood.
In the setting section, you can:
- Statistics – view your stats from the various game modes; you can reset them too
- Leaderboard – check out the Google Play leaderboard and acheivements
- Sounds – modify the sounds and card animations
- Game Mode – you can choose to draw 1 or 3 cards at time
- Preferences – you can set up screen orientation, your nickname, and more
- Visuals – modify the card backs, screen background, card faces, and more
The customization of the game, just adds to the overall enjoyment. Solitaire is a pretty straight forward game but the folks over at Mobility Ware have done a nice job putting together a game the whole family can enjoy and tweak to their liking.
If you are looking a nice version of Solitaire to play, I would check out Solitaire by MobilityWare.
