Annoying fatal flaw
I love this game. And I generally love this app. But there is a bug in the start meld that is frustrating and fatal to continuing a game. If a player lays down a black/red canasta during the initial meld of say 90 points against a 120 point requirement, the cards form a book. That’s the way it’s supposed to be. Then to satisfy the 120 points the player lays down two cards and a wild card the app says it’s an invalid meld because it doesn’t have 3 like cards. Since the book is already on the table and can’t be recovered, the player is stuck. The only way out is to start a new game. A work-around is to not form a book during the initial meld unless you have 3 like cards to build your next canasta. In other words the game forgets that you’ve already fulfilled the 3 like cards with a wild card requirement of the initial meld.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your detailed feedback, I am glad you enjoy the game. I will investigate and fix this bug for the next update.
Great game- except for glitches
Great game, minus a few glitches....
1- The rules state that you can have 2 wild cards in a canasta. (3 if you turn on that option) I had one already on the table with only one wild card. It would not let me add one more if the wild card was at the bottom. This glitch has cost us times to go out. Or having to make a "dirty" book out of a "clean" book in order to get the wild cards played. (Basically, not letting you put one wild card on top of another)
2- you can not see an opponents black book on their screen. (The green screen background) There's not enough contrast.
3- A glitch that would hide a card drawn from the draw pile in my hand behind the other cards in my hand. To correct and keep playing, I would have to "pretend" to play cards in my hand by putting them up on the table until I could see the hidden card and then click on the hidden card so it would go into my hand properly. Then I could bring the cards placed on the table back into my hand.
One thing we'd like to see is the ability to play more than two people via wifi or Bluetooth on a local game.
We have sent an email to you and hope to see the glitches fixed soon.
Other than that, we really enjoy your game.
It’s not great for one you have to pay for!
I had been using a free Hand and Foot game that always worked great, but apparently has not been updated to work with the updated iOS versions, so I forced to find another one. This one you have to pay for and the calibration is terrible. It rarely clicks on the correct card I am trying to choose when organizing or selecting a card to discard. I never had that issue with the other app, so there is no reason this one should, especially because they charge for it. I really hope they fix that. It also almost never lets me choose to pick up a discarded card, even if I have enough to lay down my meld etc. It’s very frustrating because if you pay for an app, it better work pretty well or at least as well as the free version.
