App description: "Straight Aces is not your standard puzzle game.. it's why words like 'addiction' were invented."


We've turned Poker into a quick playing, skill based puzzle game and called it Straight Aces.

Unfamiliar with Poker? No worries.

Inspired by popular match three games such as Bejeweled. Straight Aces is excellent for those who've always wanted to learn to play Poker, or just looking for a fresh new puzzle game to enjoy.

Features:
- A Fresh Experience with an old Classic
- High Quality Graphics and Presentation
- Super Smooth Animations
- 3D Cards and Poker Chips
- Track Your Progress with the Daily Graph
- Learn the Game or Perfect Your Skill
- Music by The Jason Parker Quartet
- Additional Game Modes, including Online Play (Coming Soon)

How to Play:
Select five cards using a 4x4 grid of playing cards. The aim is to make the highest ranked hand possible. Strategy is important as new cards fill where cards were previously chosen. Anticipation is part of the strategy.

A standard session lasts 60 seconds, but is able to be expanded by getting High Ranking Poker Hands.

Instant feedback is provided through Big Money payouts (3D Poker Chips) and time is given to the player to extend their session.

About:
Straight Aces is poker like you've never played it before. Making special use of the touchscreen, Straight Aces is a fast playing skill based game that pushes your puzzle skills to new heights.

Unfamiliar with poker?

Straight Aces is excellent for those who've always wanted to learn, as the game quickly rewards and reinforces good play with extra time and money.


Rules:
The goal in Straight Aces is to make as much money, in as fast a time possible.

Each game session starts with sixty seconds on the clock. There is no limit to the number of hands the player is able to make, but scoring is all about quality, over quantity.

Based off the standard poker tier system, higher valued hands are worth more money, and also extend the length of the game session. The session ends when the clock reaches zero.

Cheers!

For the time being we've released just this, a Speed Run styled gameplay called 'Express Mode', with hopes to go much further.. The globe in the background of the menus is a clue of what's to come. We wanted to mitigate our risk a little to start, in case people didn't like the game.

Of course, the better hands you make, the longer you're able to extend our run. The longest run I've had has gone on for 2:23 seconds.

If you click the red triangular exclamation icon in the upper right corner of your first post, you can then send a message that all of the mods will see. You can request a thread title change there.

That's for reporting an improper post tho.. I'm not sure they would like that.

We're happy to receive as many gameplay impressions as we can. Feel free to post any additional questions/comments you might have. We're certainly looking to implement all the things we can to make Straight Aces a solid experience.

Also, if anyone remembers the thread in the upcoming section of this board you should know we have a trick or two up our sleeve.
