Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Be sure to update to version 1.1 of this software, as it contains important bug fixes.
From the people who brought you the highly acclaimed version of Hearts for your iPhone, now you can play the classic bidding game of Spades on your iPhone or iPod Touch. Bid on your hand and see if you and your AI partner can out-strategize and out-play your advanced AI opponents.
This time around Ned, your Hearts AI opponent, is your partner. Hands are played to 500 points, and nil earns 100 points.
Unlike many Spades implementations, this one supports blind nils, complete with 2-card passing (though you can disable this feature from the options screen).
The score and statistics pages let you know how often you won and loss, as well as the progress of the current game.
What's New in Version 1.42
Fix issue where, with blind nil disabled, cards are still dealt upside down in blind nil solutions.
Still a bunch of bugs
I'm using the updated version, and still.... 1. Game crashes every time I've played it, particularly if I'm trying to make Nil 2. When I restart the game, it appears saved, but it doesn't allow me to play at all, and I end up having to reset the game anyway. 3. And this is just a suggestion, but with the "Joker" option, I'd like to see actual jokers instead of just the 2's. Otherwise, I'm excited for future updates.
Extremely buggy, your partner doesn't know how to cover you whatsoever, he'll spade your aces, take sandbags ok hands he could have given to you and many more, low cards win at least once a round and there are absolutly no instructions as to how to use the interface, i've had the app for two days now and I still can't figure out how to trigger dealing blind vs face up
No sound makes it kinds boring, you don't even hear the cards like other games. Also the cards should be spaced out allitle more, it makes it kinds hard to push out the card you wanna throw. Also it would be nice to be able to play against real people like the poker apps. But I'm still glad this game was added I love spades, can't wait for the updates.
