A Fine, if Flaky, Waste of Time

Let¿s face it -- Klondike Solitaire is not a productivity application, regardless whether you play it on your physical desktop with pasteboards, the built-in Operating System version on your desktop or laptop computer, or on a tablet device. It was created to waste time. Years ago, I found a dedicated electronic Solitaire game in a junk box at a flea market, and it ate many idle hours commuting on the bus ¿ at least until I found a Blackjack game at another swap meet. Not long after I bought my NOOK Color in May, 2011, I purchased Agile Fusion¿s Solitaire. If you haven¿t heard of them before, Agile Fusion helped create the NOOK Color¿s Graphical User Interface. Taking full advantage of the NOOK¿s high resolution (1024 X 600) screen and 16 million colors, it¿s a sumptuous feast for the eyes. It offers three card themes; one apparently designed for portrait use and two detailed classic designs. You also have your choice of nine table themes, ranging from two simple color gradients, textures including marble and various 'bubbles', and my favorite, the blond wood slats. One may choose play single or three card deal, place the stack on the left or the right, select difficulty (easy or hard) and Standard or Las Vegas scoring. There are also options to turn on sound effects (annoying) and background music (pleasant). Game play is slick and smooth, for the most part. Tapping on the stack deals the next card(s) and one may gently guide a card where it is desired. To use the automatic move, a double-tap makes (one hopes) the best play. This often means the foundation stacks, which may not always be the best strategy. If you are stuck, the on-screen hint throws you a life-saver (guess what icon that function uses) but it basically reviews obvious moves or hits the next deal, and does not make strategic plays such as plundering the foundation stacks. Make no mistake, though; Agile Fusion¿s Solitaire is a one-trick pony: it plays Klondike and that¿s all it does. AF offers Spider and FreeCell Solitaire as separate apps, at about a buck a piece. My one complaint is with a functional handicap the app has. Occasionally, well into a given hand, the game freezes and will not respond to touch. The Undo, Hint and Settings controls work normally, and the most effective way to unstick the cards is to minimize the game, and then recall it from the NOOK¿s main screen. The game usually unlocks on the first try and works fine for the rest of the hand. Aside from this fluke -- probably a memory leak in the program -- it¿s a great app, and takes my 3-*** rating. It¿s certainly worth the dollar or two it will cost you. Buy it. Pros: Beautiful, playable, customizable and inexpensive. Cons: Only one flavor of Solitaire, weak hints and random lock-ups.

    Game works fine but...

    Ok, I've been playing solitare on computers since the dawn of computers practically, but I've played this game for more than a week now and never seen to win....at all. It is almost as if it is preprogrammed to always give you a losing sequence of cards. I am not a newbie to solitare....I know how to play it well. So, is this just me or does anyone else have this same problem?

    Boring!

    Non stop losing. It is not that entertaining when you lose every time. One feels that you are set up from the moment the cards are laid out that you do not have a chance at all to win. So you lay out another hand, and another, etc. Same exact feeling. You just can't win. To me it was not worth it. Save your money.

    Antiquated Plus Frequent Spam

    The game is archaic and not user friendly. I have a different Solitaire on my iPhone. If I tap a card, it will automatically move to the available spot. If there are multiple possibilities, it goes to one of them and you can then choose to move it by tapping again. On AF's Solitaire you have to drag each card or stack manually. It reminds me of computer games in the late '80s or early '90s.

    Then there's the ads you get. Every couple of days, you get an AF icon on the left side of the status bar. When you click on it, there's the AF spam of the day. I would have happily paid more to get an app without ads. I will not purchase another AF app.

    Not recommended - hardly ever win

    The game is almost impossible to win. I don't mind losing sometimes but not all the time. I have had games that I could only make one or two moves and then I was done. Not much fun.

    Love to Play Solitaire

    Love to play the game. Very, very disappointed in the options of card designs to select from. The numbers and visuals on the cards are not very big and appear jumbled with too much artwork. Options appear to be the bottom of the list of the worst.
