What's New in Version 2.3
UI is horrible
I agree with many of the reviews out here. Play dynamics is great visuals are good but the UI is an idiot. It plays wilds on canastas instead of other stacks, discards on going out instead of playing that card on a stack. Also you shouldn't be able to pick up cards of a closed canasta. The UI will hold cards that could make a canasta after picking up the discard pile. It plays cards down when the deck is frozen instead of holding them it has even played a wild down to play cards down.
One other item I have noticed is that the paid version keeps asking me to play skat. I don't want ANY ads on a paid version.
There is also no way to write to the company support to log bugs. For example I was playing a two player game and the AI laid down all but one card and was no where near a canasta. In addition I have seen the computer go down to one card and then not discard and it was then my turn.
AND still get ads in the paid version. Don't buy folks!
Great function, terrible logic
This game works great! No crashing, no ads (paid version), and it's very fast and addicting! However, the logic is awful. I get so frustrated I end up yelling at my phone! A player would never play a wild card on a meld that cannot become a canasta if there is an available meld that could be made into a canasta! Nor would they play wilds on existing canastas instead of on other melds. Or discard their last card instead of making a canasta with it! Please upgrade the IQ of the computer players - especially my partner!
Great app but it's maddening playing with an AI partner that makes terrible errors. All same issues as listed in other reviews, plus: AI will hold cards in hand that should be put down in meld to get closer to having canasta--I had to lay out almost all my cards to make the 120 so I had 1 card in my hand and my partner had nine and kept discarding wilds and our meld cards when we desperately needed to make a canasta so I could go out. It was infuriating!!! Not fun at all to play with mistakes in logic like this.
