***********************************************************
Hearts is a classic card game, full of skill and strategy. Unless you attempt to Shoot the Moon, simply avoid collecting the Hearts.

There can be few things in life which are more frustrating than being beaten by luck! To have your card playing ability and experience fall victim to a lucky deal can cause players much irritation. Hearts, however, is a game which regularly brings victory for skilled players over their less skillful opponents through its depth of strategy.

Hearts supports all the usual features you would expect from a ZingMagic game, including numerous game play variations, reviewing the game, take-back and replay of moves, display of the previous move and hints.

Game features:
* Multiple levels of play. Each computer player can have any strength from beginner to expert.
* Best of breed artificial intelligence engine, better than most PC Hearts engines.
* Multiple display and card playing options to suit your individual preference.
* Support for three different Passing cards game variations.
* Support for Queen of Spades breaking Hearts game variation.
* Support for Ten or Jack of Diamonds as a bonus card game variation.
* Full undo and redo of moves.
* Hints.
* Hearts is just one of our large collection of best of breed classic board, card and puzzle games available for a wide range of platforms.

    Works on my Nook HD nicely with decent graphics and the side to side layout. I disagree slightly with some of the "rules", but I suppose there may be regional themes. For example, I don't consider "heats broken" just because the Queen of Spades is played. The AI seems moderate, with some weakness, it might vary from the three computer players, but I didn't try to map that out. It did a better job than some of taking a hit for the team to gobble up a trick when someone might be trying to run the hand, but it clearly didn't play it's highest cards and lowest cards of a suit appropriately. It's passing doesn't seem optimal either, but I have my own quirks about passing my three cards. It's hard to get an AI just right. I don't think it's "fair" in some regards when an overly intelligent "AI" "knows" the only spade left in play is the King or Ace and confidently tosses out the Queen. I card count when I can while playing, but few humans can count at the level a computer can. While I prefer a balanced AI, I'd rather have one "too smart" than "too dumb". I can get a little frustrated when an "AI" is not "I", but this one is playable.

    Not bad

    Not Bad, Not Great. The undo function is erratic as far as I can tell - it becomes available for some moves, not for others. Can't find info in help to explain why. Otherwise, fine.
