What's New in Version 1.0.4
Fixed Minor Issues
So I've been playing this game for about 2 years. I had to get beyond the annoying advertisements & pay for the upgrade. However, I was appalled that the advertisements included inappropriate advertisements for kids; there is no age limit on this app & they needed to be sensitive to their audience. Certain partners you pick will definitely cheat or trump you, which is annoying. Sometimes the game cheats, counts a book & tabulates the wrong score. There are definitely some fixable issues. But beyond those complaints, the game is very fun & the settings give you enough playing options. The graphics are pretty nice compared to other games of the like. They now show the tally of books & bids underneath the player, which is good. It will give you hours of addicting fun. My kids are now addicted to the game too!
For the rules I am used to using, app is pretty good. The biggest thing it has that I haven't found in any other spades app is the ability to set a minimum bid (so-called "suicide" bidding rule). The companion rule, sandbags, is also present. I like to have minimum bids w/sandbags because it forces players to try and bid their hands as accurately as possible. Most other apps just have goofy bidding because they don't have these options.
But it would be nice if there was just a simple minimum bid option with no requirement for your partner to go nil. Also, you always bid first, which isn't fair.
There are other issues, but the min bids and sandbags makes this app quite a bit better than the others.
BEST SINGLE PLAYER SPADES
This is, hands down, the best single player spades app. I've tried them all. It does not offer live interactive games, but when you get tired of the whining, blaming and quitting rampant in the multi player games, this is the go to app. The bots do not keep pulling tricks to make their individual bid when you are already sitting on a couple of bags. They do not lead spades early in the game when they have only two low spades in their hand. They even make reasonable decisions about whether to lay off tricks or go for the set once your bid is made. These bots are the best programmed I've seen.
