Do you enjoy playing Solitaire and other classic card games? Are you looking for a different twist on these types of card games and want a little bit more of a challenge? Then Artifice of Solitaire from developer Maxim Leybovich is just for you! This app is compatible iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, and it also requires iOS 3.0 or later.

Gameplay:

After Artifice of Solitaire finishes loading, the user is shown a main menu screen that allows the user to select different game play options such as “Training”, “Match Game”, or “Tournament”. The user can also view review statistics, change the games settings, and learn more about the game itself. Since this is the free version of the game app being offered, the user also has the option of purchasing the full version of the game. Please note that functions such as “Tournament” and the “Shop” are only accessible if the full version of the game is purchased.

When selecting the “Training” or “Match Game” functions, the user will be prompted to choose from the following game options: Klondike, Spider, Free Cell, or Pyramid. Once the user selects their desired game option, they can click on the “Play” button on the bottom right hand corner to begin the actual game. Users can always revert back to the previous screen or main menu by selecting the “Cancel” button on the bottom left hand corner.  If the player ever wants to leave a current game being played, they can select the “menu” button on the bottom of the screen and return to their desired screen.

The only downside to this game app is that the user will need to have some sort of prior knowledge on how to play the actual Solitaire game in order to successfully with rounds on this app. A beginning user can attempt to make sense of it all, but might get frustrated early on, so ti would be better if they looked up on how to actually play Solitaire.

Appearance and Layout:

Artifice of Solitaire App Review

The general appearance and layout of Artifice of Solitaire is simple, and bears a similar resemblance of the Solitaire games that can be played on personal computers. Individual screens are clear and easy to navigate through, and the color scheme is basic and non-distracting from actual game playing. Function buttons and options are easy to find and understand.

Value:

Since Artifice of Solitaire is offered for free, even if it is a trail version, it is still a decent deal, especially for those who love to play Solitaire, whether on the computer or with actual cards. Since it offers more than the classic game itself, both amateur and intermediate players will have plenty of game to keep them occupied with and entertained. This is highly recommended, so what are you waiting for? Get the game app today!
