App description: At long last, a Solitaire game befitting the iPhone. The name says it all: Awesome Solitaire is the slickest take on this classic game you'll find anywhere.

"This is the absolute coolest version of solitaire you will ever play on your iPhone."
- The Unofficial Apple Weblog App of the Day (http://bit.ly/9eSdYz)

"Playing solitaire's a nice way to pass the time. Playing solitaire in a gyroscope-controlled cosmos of twinkling stars is an even nicer way to pass the time."
- Gizmodo (http://gizmo.do/b0ZqvT)

"Wolter Group, has loaded up the app with constant affirmations of progress and slick, flashy animations la 'Guitar Hero' that make the normally staid card game feel downright epic."
- Switched (http://bit.ly/9NYefw)

"The App Store is flooded with solitaire apps, but Wolter Group brings something more to the table..."
- App Discover (http://bit.ly/bCITtN)

Here's what people are saying about Awesome Solitaire on Twitter:

@kitsunenoir says Man, Awesome Solitaire for the iPhone is pretty awesome.

@bebebel says Probably the trippiest iPhone game, Awesome Solitaire! (in a far far away galaxy)

@numberless says Awesome Solitaire on iPhone is [...] totally the definitive awesome solitaire experience

Awesome Solitaire features:

Realistic 3D motion and awesome effects? Check.
Super sharp visuals and Retina Display support? You know it.
Gyroscope-powered parallax starfield background? Yeah, that's right.
Great interaction, high-stakes, undo, stats, and more? And how!

All that and the coolest winning animation around. Try your hand at the new king of Solitaire.

Hey All,

If you're bored of mundane Solitaire games, then you'll be happy to know that Awesome Solitaire is free all this weekend! I know Touch Arcade folks aren't necessarily "casual" gamers, but sometimes you just want to kick it old school with a classic, and you shouldn't have to put up with some ugly poorly built app to have your solitaire moment.

Check out the video:

And then download the app:

Hey, it's free! Free as in beer.

Lord Vader mind helping out code the app link? I would do it myself, but I don't know how.

This was a quick download for me! The ui, backgrounds are super slick, lots of eye candy (the cosmos float with the direction of the gyroscope, nice touch!) hands down the only app that has made Solitaire enjoyable to play for me. I also like that it saves my progress on a game if I exit the app. I had this on my wishlist, but thanks for the freebie!

Hopefully we will see updates in the future, new decks, backgrounds?
