What's New in Version 2.3
Lots of improvements! Including:
* Penalties for quitting in multiplayer
* All new achievements
* More fun end-of-game experience
* Many bug fixes and other minor improvements
This game is pretty well designed. I love playing the multi-player option. There are many players who say they can play but are really horrible. They expect to win by going nil all the time. When they happen to get lucky and get the nil the trash talking begins. The minute they get set its time to QUIT. They ruin the game for the rest of the players. Now i am stuck with playing bots. This happens about 95% of the time. I have purchased tokens several times but will not anymore because i am throwing away money to play solo with the computer which takes away the fun and the challenge. Programers should have some kind of way to see your partners rankings or stats. Many are rookies or new jacks who just have an idea of how to play but have no skill whatsoever. Once the game starts you lose a token if a player leaves after the first hand. I would like to have an option to remove the nil completely. Programers should ban quitters for a day or so after quitting too much. Its not fair that I pay to play with rookies and lose my money and time when they quit because they dont know how to bid there hands. Overall the game is great but many of the players are not. I will not buy more tokens until these issues are fixed. I am sure many of you who have witnessed this agree. Thank you and write your review if you feel the same or have any other ideas.. Jose
Great game but AWFUL A.I.!!!
I downloaded this game forever ago but never really played. Only recently have I gotten bored with all my other apps so I finally started playing this and it definitely helps to pass the time. The game is really smooth and put together well, but it has some major issues when playing offline. First, I won't complain about the AI opponents getting better hands because it's not that big a deal, however, it's clear as day that the AI knows what cards everyone has. For instance, the AI always knows whether to cut over it's partner or not and knows the perfect cards to play when bidding nil, so they never get set. And my second and most important issue is the partner AI, it's godawful!! They do everything wrong! I bid nil and my partner proceeded to play the TWO OF DIAMONDS! I won with a 3 of diamonds...and he had plenty of other suits to choose from! Terrible, terrible AI!
Good but room for improvement
Unlike some reviewers, I've been able to get computer opponents to miss their bids (I play Hard level). However there is some room for improvement:
- Computer partner sometimes does not properly protect me when I build nil. Normally it does, but I've a few instances it did not, really frustrating.
- Computer players need to learn how to feed bags to opponents so they hit the bag limit.
- Computer players need to learn to take score into account when bidding, especially when getting near 500. Sometimes you have to take on more risk depending on the score.
- Provide option to view last trick. If one is distracted, one can miss what is played. It is a common rule that players can always review the last trick.
- Provide option to replay hand (but does not get scored). Sometimes I would like to go back and replay hand to see if different actions would lead to different results.
Overall, this Spades game is the best I have tried for the IPad, but needs some improvements to earn 5 stars.
UPDATE: Over time, this app freezes up when starting. requires a reinstall to work again, but then lose all stats and progress. Lowering rating until fixed.
