TriPeaks Solitaire (Free)
By GASP Mobile Games Inc
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Unlike other solitaire games which could be traced to as early as 18th century, the Tri-Peaks (also known as Three Peaks, Tri Towers or Triple Peaks) is relatively new: it was invented in 1989 by Robert Hogue. As any other successful game, millions of Solitaire clones have been created on all possible platforms. So why should you give our version a try? We tried to recreate all the fun of original game with many card laouts in a tiny download package.
The game starts with a specific layout and one open card. Rest of the cards are on closed stack. Your aim is to move all the cards to open card.
- You can move any of the open card on the three peaks to the open card if it is adjacent to it regardless of the suit. e.g. you can move a 3 or 5 in case the open card is 4. Either King or 2 can go on top of the Ace (and vice versa).
- If you are unable to move any card you can open a close card.
- Every time you move a card from layout to open card you get points. These points start with 1 for the first time and increase by 1 for subsequent cards. However if you open a close card the streak breaks and the point start from 1 again. Earn bonus points for left over closed cards or for fast finish.
What's New in Version 2.1
Restored original background. Added an option to switch to original deck.
This latest version ruins a good playing app. Some exposed cards do not flip, the cumulative scoring is gone, starting a new game after ending one is convoluted, and it plays slowly. I don't understand why this hasn't been corrected.
Current version is a disappointment. Particularly miss the cumulative scoring. It's a "dumbed down" version of what was once unique. Now offers nothing over apps offered by other developers.
This version is terrible. If the old one doesn't come back it will be deleted.
