"Overall, I really enjoy playing this game. Very creative twist on a classic solitaire game."

Review from AppVersity
Its actually isnt what I thought Id be getting when I saw the name Solitaire Siege. I thought it would be another version of the game played against a computer opponent. But it turns out I was wrong very wrong and very happy.
Sound and game play make this game fun to play and well worth the price.

LordGek's comments:

Anyone notice I lost the "?"!

It's a cool twist on Pyramid Solitaire a bit in the same vein as the computer game, "Fairway Solitaire" but instead with a military theme.

I'm liking it so far and there is a great variety of special weapons although how they work isn't often all that clear until AFTER you've tried it once or twice (are they covered in the Help?).

If you ever miss a valid move or run out of cards (your soldiers) with bad guys still on the field, you'll take damage. Take enough and the game is over. If you can't clear a field of baddies but survive their return fire at the end of the level (each card left on the field dinks you a bit) or actually do completely clear the field you'll move onto an end of level bonus screen and then the next level.

I also thing it's pretty cute how although making big runs gets you some points, the way to big bonuses is being able to quickly use an uncovered card when a big bonus is suddenly printed on it (usually only shows up for a few seconds).

I can't wait to see what they add in future updates.

Thanks LordGek for your review.

That's an interesting approach for a Patience card game. I may purchase it later today.

Thank you for the kind comments.

Hi Guys,
Thanks for starting this thread and the mini review and Im really happy that you seem to like (Ive been on a huge high today, what with the game been released and more so because everyone seems to like it so far).

Yeah, I wanted to designed a game that was easy and fun to play with plenty of replay value and a card game seemed to be the best choice but I wanted the game to be a bit more forgiving then a normal card game and it had to have plenty of scope for lots of updates and features, and so after a few months we ended up with Solitaire Siege =)

Yeah, the weapons can be a bit confusing at first. There is a short description in the help section about the weapons, but basically the main thing is try to keep the hand grenades for taking out the Stone Wall card and the Flame Thrower card removes the Tree card. After a few games you actually start to learn strategies on how to combine cards together to get bonus points.
For example, the Spy card not only turns the cards in the selected row to face the player, but it also displays all the bounty/bonus points on the Jack, Queen, King and Ace cards, so you can also use it that way for getting more points if you have a card that can be played or you could even use the Sniper card if you have one.
Did you notice that after linking 10 cards (then at 15 and 20) you get a Mercenary card for doing so well?

As for future updates, Ive got so many ideas and features for the game but I can tell you that the next minor update will involve Ninja attacks against the player, so you have to smack him before he attacks, which adds another dimension to the game play. In fact we had a rough version of this feature in the game before we submitted the game, but we ended up taking it out as didnt want to give the game to step a learning curve to the game so we are currently tweaking this feature so it fits smoothly into the progression level of the game.

As for other updates, I have some ideas for a couple of boss style battles and enemy vehicles that will need to be destroyed as they will attack the player at set intervals. As a little hint of what else to expect, check out the iPhone wall papers in this post.

Links to videos of the game:
Solitaire Siege Intro: Comic book style intro with a bit of story background.

Solitaire Siege Weapons (Sorry I went a bit nuts with the explosions on this one, but you'll like it):

Solitaire Siege Game Play: Watch someone get a 24 card combo.

As for time intervals for the updates, we are aiming for at least one per month, maybe quicker then that, but we will make sure that what ever we do works well with the game first and doesnt destroy the flow of the game as its surprising how a little feature can screw up the game play and we want to make sure that after a few updates, that the game is still accessible to new players.

If anyone has any questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to get in touch as we want our players to be happy with our games and I want to save a really big thank you to every one that has bought our game (especially if you have left a review) as we are only a small team and every sale really does make a difference to us. So THANK YOU!

All the best,

Mike Moore

I love the strategic thinking aspects and hope you don't start going down too much of an arcade route with little whack-mole aspects.

Maybe bad luck or something but I could not pass level 4 though I have removed all cards. It seems the game didn't recognize the end.

You took out all baddies or you ran out of cards?

If it's just that you've run out of cards you may still need to hit the "Surrender Flag".

we will try


Im the game programmer. It has been a fun task. We will try to do not get rid of the nice aspects of the game (strategy). But of course, we will keep original game mode (actual difficulty settings and gameplay) while adding harder options.

And of course, there will be nice new mini games with every update.

Thanks for the support buying the game
