Ratings and Reviews
Not completely realistic play by partner.
Not bad but there a couple things I don’t like. It’s almost impossible to win with a partner. My partner is constantly making bids where he gets 3 tricks but he bid 8 or 9. It’s ridiculous! Also, sometimes your partner plays cards very stupidly. Anyone who plays the game holds onto higher cards when they don’t lead. My partner always throws high cards no matter what. One game I threw a card in the suit and my partner threw an ace in another suit. The next hand I threw a card that was in the suit he threw previously, he threw a 4 in another suit! No one who plays the game, whether throwing off or not, would not play the game that way!!!!! You make the partner super dumb and the other computers super aggressive and smart. At least smarter than my partner.
Not bad, but could be better.
I enjoyed playing 500 but some of the things needed:
1. The screen overlay when you are bidding tells you the highest bid but also HIDES your partners bid - which is a very important thing to know when playing 4 player. Also helps to know any other bids for planning strategy.
2. Cards still move off left of screen
3. Rearrange my cards in a meaningful way. If you take hidden cards, they are place where the cards you replaced were. So, you wind up with the joker in the middle of your diamonds and spades and your heart run looks like 6,7,8, 5 of spades, 9, 10, queen of clubs. Diffuicult to plan out when you cant areange your cards.
4. Partner has bid 8 of a suit with no jacks or jokers in their hand. Not good AI.
A few more small features?
I’m really enjoying the app, it’s good for me to keep me in the game between get togethers with friends. It’s simply designed and it works easily. I would like to see a review feature. There are card game apps with the functionality that reviews the hand played as it’s played, and after the hand as a review. The game goes around so fast, a look back on what cards were played would be very helpful. Also, a running score as the game progresses. But mainly the review of cards played. I think that would be a great addition. Thanks!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the review and the suggestions. Glad you enjoy the game. I actually have a plan to implement the cards played history feature in a future update.
