What's New in Version 1.45
• Updated for iOS 7
• Minor bug fixes
Good but has a scoring bug
I like this game except it has a scoring bug. For example, I just finished a hand where I did not take a single trick and the score showed as zero throughout the game but then when it showed the final tally for all the players suddenly I had 26 points added for the one hand. The same can happen to other players if they have 0 also, but not every time. It really detracts from playing when you know the scoring can be wrong, I wish they would fix this.
Another thing is even in Hard mode it is easy to get the Jack of Diamonds. Subsequent players tend to play low the same as they should for other suits, even if playing high would allow them to take the trick. Similarly, I am often passed a very high Diamond, again in a manner similar to other suits but this should not apply to Diamonds.
Otherwise, I would rate 5 stars.
Love this game
Lot more fun since started using the Jack of Diamonds. I only play the hard version. Apparently one reviewer does not know all the rules of the game. There is no scoring quirk. If one player gets all the tricks then his score is zero and everyone else gets 26!
Would be nice if we could change the names of the other players or our own. I would love to see it speed up when it is clear that one player will be stuck with all remaining cards. Such as if he plays a spade and there are no more. He will get all the cards left. Like to hurry that up. Who needs to play out every card then?
Super cool game. Let's me win a lot. Keeps me coming back.
Good game and good implementation.
The interface is easy to navigate, the cards are easy to read, and the Ai seems to play quite well. I highly recommend it. I noticed one review gave it a lower rating because they thought there was a bug with the scoring. It is not a bug. When a single player takes all the hearts and the queen of spades it is called shooting the moon and all the other players end up getting 26 points. The game is supposed to do that and it is one area where the AI shines. An AI player will intentionally take a trick just to prevent a player from succeeding in doing this. 5 Stars.
