Hello fellow gamers, this is the first game that IGS Games released on the mobile platform. Hope you all like it!

We will be submitting a new update this week, and it will include some pretty cool additions.

The most significant update is that we are adding over 10,000 brand new card sets, and every one of them solvable. In case you are wondering, most Solitaire games use the 6K or so card sets used in the old windows' solitaire game. After so many years I think a lot of people have seen and played most of them. We think the addition of these new sets will offer you some great new challenge!

Please, try the game and let us know what you think!

10,000 sets? that's a lot of solitaire

I must've played over 1000 games, but i can count the ones that I've actually completed with 2 hands.

These games are hard

I hope the fix level 22 in the update. I spent like 2 hours on that stage and I must say it's unsolvable.

Thanks for the comment!

Regarding Level 22, we did receive many players complaining it's unsolvable...so we made a video walkthrough

However you need to use the "wild" card to solve it.

Enjoy!

So it IS unsolvable, unless you use the wild card.

We will fix this issue in the next update (coming in a week or 2), and make sure that it is solvable without using the wild card

Thanks for your input, please let us know if you have any other comments and suggestions!

Game Impressions

OK, so I've never actually written an impression for any games, but decided to give it a try since the developer actually responded to my comment and made me feel special

Summary
Nothing really special about it, it's the same Klondike game that you see almost everywhere. If you already have a Solitaire game that you like, this one is OK to pass. But if you are new to Solitaire on your iPhone, this one is not a bad choice.

Ratings: 4/5

Pros
- Nice Graphics. You can tell the developer actually put in some efforts making the art.
- Lots of games. Being a long time Solitaire player since Windows 3.1, it's almost like I have seen every possible combinations. The cards here seem new.
- Simple. Believe it or not, I tried the other Solitaire games with some fancy effects and such, and they DO NOT add to the experience.
- Free & no ads. Always good

Cons
- Game modes are basically the same. It would be nice to have other versions such as Flip 3.
- Achievements are way too hard. I don't believe even the guys that made the game can get some of the achievements.

So there you have it, my first official impression on a game
