What's New in Version 2.2
MacBook Pro Retina display support.
A little too addicting! Looks great! No problems
I really enjoy this solitaire game. It looks great on the retina display, and I have vision problems. The cards are large. You can vary the visual simplicity or complexity by changing the card and/or background style.
It plays really well. You only need to click on cards, and they move to the appropriate places by themselves. I've had no problems with cards going where I did not want them.
The sounds are not especially obnoxious or loud, and you only get balloons when you win, not a cheering crowd. There is no sound volume control in the game itself; you can regulate it using the computer's volume control.
The thing I think is too simple is the scoring. Your game can be timed or not; this is easily changed with one button at the start of each game. But there is no scorekeeping. Scores are a little difficult to see way down at the bottom of the screen, only if you win. Change the screen and they are gone. If you want to keep score, you could use Notes, a Stickie, or good old pencil and paper! (Gasp! What did she say?) I would like the game to keep a running score of how I have done over time, and be able to accommodate maybe 3 other players, as well. That would be great for teaching the game to children, the kids competing in the back seat on a road trip, or playing with your honey! I know its Solitaire, but it doesn't have to be that lonely!
it mellows me out
I'm enjoying this version. It doesn't keep a cumulative score, which bothered me at first, but that takes much of the pressure off and becomes more mindless and carefree as I'm unwinding from the day. This version also allows many things I've always considering cheating in other versions. I can undo and redo with no penalty, and borrow from one stack to the other. That sort of freedom makes the game totally between the player and him/herself and it becomes simply something soothing that takes a some of thought (but not six college degrees) while you're ozoning in front of the TV. Most of the games are winnable, if you're willing to break the traditional rules. All in all, it's certainly worth the price and I play several games every night. Highly recommend to people who know that this is a game and don't take themselves too seriously.
Good points first: The cover (with the balloons) is a great improvement because I had a hard time seeing the menu key with all those exploding things before. Good job.
Other: At first I found things too small and I still cannot hear the slapping sound of the cards (which I miss and wish was back), but I have adapted to the size.
Negative: This is an ongoing problem that was not corrected with the new edition: I try to beat my own time, and almost all the time when I "hit" a card to go on the "ace pile" it only moves sideways---sometimes several times. I finally have to drag it to the "ace pile" and lose valuable time. I hope you will fix that hitch. Also, when a new card appears and I tap it (so that it will go on the "ace pile" it goes below instead and then I have to go through the previous experience. That is really annoying.
