This is a 'double' solitaire game like no other!
DailyAppShow: "Just love it!"
iPhonefootprint: "iPhone App Review: Klondike Battle puts a new spin on solitaire.... must definitely be on your iPhone!"
Important note: Klondike Battle is based on ‘Russian Bank’ and has different rules to begin with.
First of all you play head-to-head against an opponent (human or computer) to determine who the best is! You are constantly trying to play your cards strategically onto the playing field, which you share with your opponent. The smarter player can increase its winning chances, by carefully checking all possibilities and making the better moves. In the classic solitaire game, you challenge yourself, but in Klondike Battle you challenge your opponent.
Secondly the game Klondike Battle has a great game pace whilst you also play against the clock. Who makes better choices in the time given? Is it you? The time is literally ticking against you, while you try to solve the best possible move! No more waiting for slower players, it keeps the pace going!
And last but not least, you can pound your opponent mental state with cards you cannot play to the playing board and give yourself the advantage in the game! Your opponent will not appreciate this, resulting in hilarious sounds of annoyance.
This game is timeless and I think once you’ve mastered the game you will love it! Take your time, this game will stick with you through the years, I know it does!

What's New in Version 3.0.1
Fixed iPod screen bug.
Awesome please a little more...
After a hundred plus apps this is the first review I've done.
If you like Klondike solitaire type games this is super fun and addicting.
To counter a couple other complaints, at least on my iPad 1, I have no problems powering off to pause a game if it takes longer than usual (6-10 mins average for me). Round button, still up and ready. Second I dont see how a timer would be possible? Everything is so random and enhanced by what you can do to your opponent... I've seen where I was smashing the ai quickly with 2 cards left against an unlocked deck only to lose in 2 rounds. I've also won on the first round with a lucky deck.
The only bug I notice is if you set the timer to fastest/hardest it forgets after 1st round every time.
But please Please PLEASE add an online PVP ability. The ai is ok and fun but they don't have too much strategy. Win rate after you get used to it for me is probably 95%.
Having a human to compete against would be awesome, since if I talked my woman into device only PVP I would get yelled at :-P
Needs a save option, cpu is too slow. Stressful solitaire...
Needs a counter or a PROGRESS INDICATOR on EACH players side which shows who is closer to winning. A round can take 10,20,30 minutes+. You have NO IDEA who's winning and how CLOSE to round-end you are. Looking at the card meters isnt good sufficient. And because a round takes so long, you would think this game will SAVE STATE. It doesn't. Needs to be changed so IT WILL SAVE IT'S STATE if you exit or get interrupted by a phone call. A simple "SAVE AND EXIT" function is needed.
I loved double solitaire as a teen; and as a retiree, it is a delight to be able to continue playing against a computer. Thanks and blessings for offering this APP.
