Ratings and Reviews
Wage war by sea, land, air…and a card table? You may think you’ve played solitaire before, but this fresh take on the venerable classic was invented by none other than Sir Winston Churchill, and the game’s lush presentation is imbued with historical flavor. Using two decks of cards and some challenging rule tweaks, it’s a wonderfully strategic reimagining of a familiar standard. And if Churchill’s design weren't enough to give the game a military pedigree, the app is the brainchild of former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
There are two metrics in which a game can be objectively evaluated: implementation quality and how much fun (or entertaining) it is.
Implementation quality is awful. Try and tap the cards for them to move. You will think you are trying a move that is not allowed. Besides, It lacks indispensable features. For example, it has no pause. You are playing against the clock and your dog asks you to go for a walk. Guess what? No pause. I will leave the lack of proper undo and hint for the other metric.
How much fun is it? Not at all. Playing a game is something we do for fun. It is that break time we give ourselves. Playing this game? You’d better pay attention because you make a bad move, your undo will cost you. You are tired, want to play a game to relax a bit. You want to hit the deck but you are unsure you have done all moves you could. In a proper game, you ask for a hint. In this game you shouldn’t, it will cost you. Yes, instead of entertaining yourself, you have to worry about spending more money, probably one of the things you wanted to forget in the first place when you decided to play a game.
Finally, have Churchill’s surviving family members really authorized to put his name on a game where money gets you promoted? Really? Is this Churchill’s model of climbing the military ranks? In this game, once you give them some money, you will get promoted. That’s a shame. Apple should not have approved this low quality rip-off scam of a game.
Excellent--but with a bug
Love the game. I've got a Peacemaker ranking with over 500 wins, but...
Occasionally there will be a legal play that is rejected. Normally quitting and restarting the game will fix it and let you continue, but today I ran into the ultimate glitch. I have a game which is won, except that it won't let me play the nine of clubs onto the eight of clubs. I've tried restarting the app; didn't help. I've tried quitting the app, restarting the iPad, and restarting the app; didn't help. I even crossed my fingers, deleted the app and downloaded it again. To my relief, everything was restored, but I still can't make the play to win the game. I even used a hint, and it showed me the play that keeps getting rejected. Arggghhhhh!!!!!
I just noticed something else about the stuck game (I took screen shots): all of the cards are visible -- I mentioned that it was a won game -- and the other eight of clubs is missing, along with the other nine of clubs. All other cards are there and ready to be played but even if I were able to play my nine of clubs on the eight I would still be stuck because there would be no way to get past the other seven of clubs. Double Arggghhhhh!!!!!!!!!!
