Default Skip-Bo: Classic Card Game $1.99

It's a nice version of the card classic, but unfortunately, not universal. There doesn't appear to be a HD version as of now.

Default Needs improvement

When playing against the computer, the AI's card movements are much too fast, and the computer always wins. I've lost my first 35 games (yes, the game play is addicting), many of them when I'm down to only a few cards but the computer miraculously draws exactly the cards it needs to win. There is no semblance of an even playing field in the vs. computer mode. Also, the game doesn't keep track of wins and losses, perhaps because human players can never win. I rated this as 4 stars in the App Store, but the extremely high challenge may ultimately trump my enjoyment. I can't comment on the multiplayer mode as I haven't tried it.

That's strange, because I've won about 3 out of 7 games against the AI. It's certainly a challenge, and I didn't win until my 3rd game when I figured out a strategy that works for me. The stats do seem to have issues though. Hopefully they'll get addressed in an update.
