Great game


This is one of my favorite games on the App Store. It has great game play and with the new update, you can finally slap the pile!!! I would love this game except for a bug the update brought. Whenever my CPU opponent slaps the pile before I do, the cards disappear and the whole game stops working. You can go back to the main menu, but when you resume the game it's still not working. Also, there's a small bug where if you finish a game, the "you win" screen pops up. You then tap the screen and it goes back to the main menu. This is what is supposed to happen. But when I start a new game it says another game is still in progress an that I can resume it. I press resume and it just goes back to the you win screen. This isn't too much of a problem because I can then go back to the main menu and start a new game by erasing the progress of the "other game still in progress." But its still a bit annoying. Lastly, you haven't updated the instructions to say that you can slap the hand or the pile.

Great game


The computer player is quite good which makes it a good challenge. Luckily you can change the difficulty settings. Game is addicting and quite fun!

The only thing missing...

anaxis the physical pain of getting smacked on the top of your hand when you go for the pile. Great rendition of the classic slap-the-pile game. The customizable rule variants are a nice touch.
