Really great but...
This would be a lock for a 5-star review but there's a bug where sometimes when you "shoot the moon" there's no acknowledgement and you just get the 26 bad points. This has happened about 30% of the time that I take all the points and seems to be more frequent if a player goes out on the hand. Would love it if the AI were better regarding JD optional play (I.e. Computer throws the J to get rid of it...not to try and take it). But that's not a huge deal.
Otherwise...great app. Snappy play, great graphics and non-obtrusive ads...and nice stats.
The game does not always properly score when you "Shoot the Moon". The first time it happened I thought I had just not noticed another hand getting a heart, but today I tracked it carefully and in 6 hands I shot the moon twice. Neither scored correctly. One was the first hand, and it merely gave me 26 points and the other players got zip. It should also have given me the choice to take 10 off or add it to the other players as I had the "Jack of Diamonds" option turned on. On the 6th hand I took 11 tricks in a row, everything after the first two. I had 79 points at the start of the hand, and the system added 26 to that, ignoring the fact that I also had the Jack of Diamonds, ignoring the fact that I shot the moon.
This needs to be fixed!
A few improvements would make this a really good hearts game: ability to queue up the next card before your turn for faster/smoother game flow; ability to change player names and make them permanent; more variety in card table selection; ability to turn off starting background music or game sound effects (separately). It's already one of the best in the app store. 5 stars if the above issues are addressed. Most other hearts games out there rate 3 or less IMO.
PS. When I edit my revew why is the old version still appearing??? Will I have 3 versions now?
