Great app, lacks racial diversity amongst player icons
This is a well developed, highly functional app. The layout is clean and it provides a good user experience. One issue that may seem insignificant to some but I think raises a question, is the lack of racial/cultural diversity amongst player icons. All the players are white with blonde or light brown hair. Considering spades is a game that is not limited to just whites who fit that bill, it may be worth the comp at considering diversifying it's player icons to represent and include a wider range of player identities.
I like the game, it's a great time killer. I do have some problems with it...
On the first hand YOU are not able to play any spades if you lack that suit. However, the computer players can if they want. VERY annoying when the game is tied.
Megan, who is your partner, will sometimes forget she's your partner, especially during times of Nil.
Hard mode likes to give you 1 high spade and the rest very low cards so you can't win tricks or nil
And you can perform Nil(and win) multiple times in a row. Won 3 in a roll on medium.
To the point.....whoever programmed this game, forgive me, hasn't a clue in how to play the game! How can you use a trump ace (legally) on the very first time a suit is played? Really? Or have Megan trump on her partners obvious winning trick and then lead off suit the next trick. These are just two of the many glaring inconsistencies in the game. Very frustrating as well when one hand you are 3 bags over and it's good, then the next time you are 2 bags over and get penalized. Get a better programming team.....stat!
