ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!
Can you say REFUND?!?!?
This is my favorite mahjong-style solitaire game on my Mac. I was SO excited to see it in the app store so I could take it with me on my iPhone. My first impression, though, was of disappointment. I can't turn the horrible music off without disabling the card sounds! The sound of the cards are one of the reasons why I enjoy the game so much. It's actually a dealbreaker for me - I can't play with that awful, repetitive put you to sleep music! I also acne play with NO sound either. How hard is it to give separate options for turning off music and ambient sound!?
Also, as others have mentioned, the bar at the bottom is BROKEN! It doesn't tell me how many undos or shuffles I have - it's just blank. I don't get freezing when using the free space but that is because I CAN'T use the free space AT ALL. It doesn't let me put anything there! And why on earth can't cards be dragged and dropped OR at the very least put a glow around selected card so I can see when they have been selected?!
I am so angry that my fave solitaire game has literally been destroyed by $ hungry developers. It is completely unacceptable and we all deserve refunds! I mean come on! You cannot tell me they tested this before putting it in the app store. FIX THIS NOW OR GET IT OUT OF THE STORE BEFORE OTHERS ARE DUPED LIKE WE WERE.
The game is unplayable, because the bottom menu bar does not respond at all. Other than that, I would consider the game a good port of the Mac version, if it actually looked and felt the same.
As it is, the animations run too fast, the instructions are incorrect and cards are not draggable, and the bottom bar doesn't work at all. It's a wonderful game that was horribly, horribly ported to the iPhone, and I wasted two dollars in the vain hope that it would be remotely comparable to the Mac OS version.
I filed bug reports, and also sent a request for support via the developer's website, and I did not even receive an acknowledgment of message receipt, when all I wanted was empty assurances that the problems would be repaired. Apparently they will not.
DO NOT BUY unless an update repairs the numerous flaws in this game.
One Star Until Updated
*UPDATE* Does not work on iOS4.
Beautiful Game. Nicely Executed.
Just like Aloha Solitaire for the Mac. Highly recommended. Just a couple of suggestions. Please add the ability to turn of the music and sound independently. Would love the nature sounds without the very repetitive music clip. Crashes a bit more than I'd like too, but it saves your place regardless for which I'm grateful. Very strong initial release. How about a beach version too?
