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.
Spades Pro - Enjoyable App!
Spades Pro is a VERY enjoyable game! Colorful and clear graphics; fine sound effects. App plays fast and smoothly on an iPad Mini generation 1.
Yes, there are times when I'd like to be able to reach across the table and smack my partner alongside the head ... some pretty lame plays! However, when I play with a human partner, there are also many times I'd like to do the same!
With the app set to Easy or Normal difficulty, I win over 85% of the time, so I've switched to Hard difficulty. With partner strategy set to Venture, I've won 30 games and have lost 9 (77% wins). The partner is quite aggressive in Venture mode, so we collect fewer bags.
I'd recommend Spades Pro to anyone who enjoys "real" spades with human opponents and wants to have a few relaxing computerized games. The partner isn't perfect, but few partners are.
