Review: “Top 3” Solitaire

Solitaire is any of a family of single-player card games of a generally similar character, but varying greatly in detail. These games typically involve dealing cards from a shuffled deck into a prescribed arrangement on a tabletop, from which the player attempts to reorder the deck by suit and rank through a series of moves transferring cards from one place to another under prescribed restrictions. Some games allow for the reshuffling of the deck(s), and/or the placement of cards into new or “empty” locations. “Top 3” Solitaire is a collection of three solitaire games: Klondike, Freecell, and Spider. It currently sells for $2.99 in the app store. It was developed by Chris Miles, and published by PosiMotion.

Presentation

This has a very simple look to it.  It starts you off in a menu to choose your game, then gives you a quick tutorial (which you can skip), and the game starts.  Very quick, and simple, just the way a solitaire game should be like.

Score: 9

Graphics

This part of the game is extremely polished and very nice.  This game probably looks better than most of the other solitaire games.  And, this game has six different skins, which is a nice option.

Score: 9

Sound

None, zero, zipo, nana, empty.

Score: 0

Gameplay

I’m not going to go into detail about how to play the card games (google is your friend).  The game plays extremely to the Microsoft version found on windows.  You just drag or double tap (to move to the top pile) the card to move it.  Extremely simple, but extremely fun.

Score: 10

Value

To get 3 games for $4 is a not bad deal.  But, if you really want to stetch your money, go with some of the $10 games that have over 100 games.  The deal isn’t great, but they aren’t ripping us off.

Score: 7

Lasting Appeal

(NOTE: this game is not for someone who is board and wants a game to play all the time.  This game is for people who like a fun game to play for 10-20 minutes every few days.)  With that in mind, this game will last you forever.  Solitaire never gets, and this version won’t either.

Score: 10

Overall

To be honest, this game isn’t an easy game to review.  Nothing is “wrong” with the game.  Everything is great about this game.  The problem is that I don’t have other solitaire games.  I can’t compare them to this one becaues I’ve never played them.  When your shopping for a solitaire game, just remember three words about this game: cheap, small, fun.
