We’ve featured plenty of card games here on TheiPhoneAppReview.com, as there certainly isn’t a shortage of them on the App Store.
The great ones are easy to spot, though, because they offer a rich game experience that all card players will enjoy.
Best Gin Rummy for iPhone and iPad offers a terrific card game experience for both novice and experienced players alike.
It includes a wide variety of games such as Gin Rummy, Gin 200, Oklahoma Gin, Straight Gin and Hollywood Gin.
Concept and Functionality:
One of the first things I look for when reviewing a card game is how realistic it is. Many games trade realism for flashy animations and fancy effects, which isn’t always a good idea because players are looking for a more relaxed game.
Best Gin Rummy, created by Kuralsoft, looks pretty basic when you first open the game, but that’s what’s great about it. You can select which game to play right off the bat.
If you’re unfamiliar with how to play, tap on the Tutorial button at the main screen. You’ll be able to read a handy walkthrough that gives you an overview of the basics.
When it comes to navigation, Best Gin Rummy is pretty spot on and easy to figure out. I do wish that a popup appeared for new players to optionally start the tutorial, just so they know it’s there and they don’t get discouraged by trying to start a new game without knowing how to play.
Best Gin Rummy is surprisingly full of great features for players to enjoy.
Along with essentially being five games in one, this particular card game gives players even more options by providing three different difficulty settings: expert, skilled, or rookie. This setting can be changed in the settings menu.
Also, Best Gin Rummy provides an auto arrange feature so cards in your hand are sorted automatically. Like other helpful features, this can be enabled or disabled in settings.
Naturally this only skims the surface of what’s available in Best Gin Rummy, but these are features that I think are most important and appealing to the game.
Best Gin Rummy can be downloaded from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. There are ads at the bottom of the screen, but there isn’t an option to disable them. Not that I could find, anyway. The ads don’t get in the way, though.
Overall, Best Gin Rummy is a fantastic rendition of these classic card games and a solid download for fans of the game. It offers a ton of options for players of all skill levels and is incredibly easy to play.
Best Gin Rummy requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
