Artwork looks great, but this appears to be iPad only. Just bought the iPhone 6+ so really disappointed - any chance of a Universal build?

Hmm.. Looks like quite a unique solitaire game. Full Game Center support. Really cool fantasy art style. And I like this - "Here at Beardy Brothers Games we don't believe in gems or adverts.

It's a great alternative to those lame windows looking solitaire apps with no visual style at all. Looks great! I hope the Devs make it iPhone compatible because while t looks great on the big screen, it's more of a phone on the go style game for me.

Really pretty game. It is straight solitaire, but new card art unlocks as you win game and the GC achievements also add incentive to keep playing. The game lacks music, which would be nice to have and the sound effects are minimal. Regardless, well worth the dollar just to enjoy the exquisite fantasy art.

Pretty much my thoughts exactly. I noticed the lack of music and quiet sound effects too. But still, like you said, you can't beat the price for a solid and somewhat unique solitaire game.

Nice but they need to make it for the iPhone. I'm all in if they can do that.

I wouldn't want game music constantly playing as solitaire can take a while. No matter how much you might initially like it - it would get old quick.

But no SFX? At all?

Is this true? No comforting paper shuffling card effects? Looks great otherwise.

Gameplay can vary between solitaire titles... Some you'll constantly win a suspicious amount of times, other you can barely squeak out an occasional triumph.

Are their Klondike rules variations available? 1 card draw, 3 card, etc?

Art does indeed look great.

Yes, there are SFX. They seem quiet though. You get the "comforting paper shuffling card effects".

As for winning chances... I played about 6 or 7 games and didn't win. And I know how to play solitaire. Seems like a realistic luck of the draw card game. So that's a good thing.

It's 3 card draw by default. I'm not sure if there are other variations available...
