Not Real World At All - DO NOT PURCHASE
FIX YOUR PROGRAM. It could be a good game.
Your computer partner cannot count his/her tricks, underbids the hands majority of the time.
Your partner constantly throws away kings in the first round of play when they could likely be counted and used to take another trick.
When your partner reaches his/her bid, it continues to take tricks that could be avoided when there are cards in other suits that could be played or lower spades.
Because of all the above reasons, I intentionally overbid my hand to compensate for my computer partner's underbidding. You would never do that in a real card game of Spades.
Even though I overbid my hand, many times, it still isn't enough. So, I find myself trying not to take tricks to compensate for my partner taking too many. Again, you would never do that in a real game of Spades.
It lets you win. It's a computer game, so of course, it always knows the cards in your hand. I often overbid my hand, when I shouldn't, knowing the computer is going to let me win most of the time anyway. That would never happen in a real game of Spades.
Love the fast pace easy to play. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is when set to advance player my computer generated partner seemed to lose the ability to correctly ascertain the appropriate number of trumps. This resulted in excess number of bags, or having to be very aware in order to avoid being set. Perhaps this is done in order to teach you to play with and inexperienced partner. However I would prefer The computer generated partner to appropriately calculate the number of trump in the hand in order to make the game more challenging and less frustrating.
My wife is a Bridge addict. I play Spades which is similar. She won't try it. Her loss! Rules are similar, but..... Start out with the free game wherein you can get bidding hints, which lean conservatively, and learn to be frustrated by your partner. Bid nil as often as you can but be prepared to lose it on the last card played. That's the way I have a win percentage of 83% over many games. The game keeps track.
Now that you know the rules and game strategy, upgrade for $2 to the pro version. Now you can tune up your strategy and partner aggressiveness. It's tougher.
Early versions of this game had a bug or two but for some period since I haven't seen one. I play one game daily (unless I lose in a squeaker chiding me to try again to show 'em my stuff). Give it five stars.
Incidentally, this game is not the pass three cards, avoid black Black Queen played in my college days.
