What's the best "Big 2" game out there?

I use to play a lot of Big 2 (four player card game) in school.

I noticed there's a couple of Big 2 games in the App Store.
Any opinions on which is the best one?

Has anyone here even heard of Big 2?

I've played most of them. Big Two to me has the best graphics and has decent AI.

I'm also a big fan of Big 2. I tried one called Big 2 Poker but that was no good- kept crashing a lot and the AI was rather weak. I didn't like the rules - it had the flush ranked by suit instead of by number (for example, a flush 10 of spades high would beat a flush ace of diamonds high). I know different countries have people playing different rules, but it would be better to have a Big 2 game with different rules systems available.

Does this Big 2 game have different rules?

I also saw another Big 2 game available (also called Big 2, released by GoGoalSoft Limited). Anyone try that one?


What I'm looking for is a version with some flexibility in rules and scoring:
Some people play with the diamond 3 leading all the time, while some play with the last winner leading.
Some play with a double point penalty for 10 cards left in hand (and triple if 13) etc.

Here's the Big Two options...hopefully multiplayer coming soon. Not 100% sure about that though. Also supports gestures to make for quick gameplay.
