Hours of addictive fun, however...
I downloaded this game at the suggestion of my girlfriend who was spending hours playing it and having a blast. By the way she's introduced me to my two favorite free games, the other one being Ruzzle. The advertising is not too obtrusive at all, after a while you get very good at it and are almost able to predict the card that's going to come out. That can be fun. Whether on the train, or on the airplane, or waiting for your flight, or on a bus ride - God forbid, this'll give you something to do for much of that time. Definitely a must download. The only thing missing? Friends, tournaments, stats and chat! I should be able to connect with the actual people that I play spades with at the barbecue, and play with them online to continue the fun of the game. If they add this to the game, it will make this the ultimate absolute all-time best spades game ever made. And I'm not kidding! I'm saving the last star for that part.
I really enjoy playing against the computer. Overall very good mix of cards and realistic opponent and partner moves. My partner is a bonehead sometimes lol and bids high after I already have put in an aggressive high bid and we lose. Like I bid 7 which is usually a stretch. In real life a partner would usually follow with a conservative bid but sometime my partner will also go high and bid 5. I'll get my 7 tricks but my partner will bomb and get only 1 or 2 and not 5. Not a complaint though. Really enjoy this app. They did a great job building this one :)
Very good, except
PRO: This is a good and enjoyable game. Bidding by partner and opponents occasionally seems odd, but I detect a crafty method behind most of that.
CON: The play occasionally but quite often locks up. The temp fix is to exit and re-enter the game, but this is an ongoing annoyance. Without this bug, it would be 5 stars.
Update: the app continues to lock up, but at greater frequency. No problems on an older iPhone (4s), but lots of problems on a newer one (6s).
