"4 Thrones, 1 king"

An innovative solitaire game

Solitaire games players have often been quite left aside by the formal, serious, gamer community, though it's hard to tell why: in the end, all video games are solitaires, aren't they?

Anyway, it was time to someone to reinvent solitaire card games properly, a sub-genre without any innovation at all since the PDA-saurs roamed the Earth. In order to entertain you, there are several different game modes, a completely overhauled graphic environment that will make you forget Windows Solitaire and fits better in mobile devices, and a series of preset decks that must be solved as they are, as if they were chess problems but using cards instead.

Beyond its apparent simplicity, it's a very well crafted game. Perhaps it depends too much on luck for a true solitaire lover's liking, but it's great no matter how you look at it. We could only ask for some kind of multiplayer feature, even though that would mean going against the very nature of solitaire games, or a chance to create your own decks and share them with other lonely players abroad.

    Game is fine but the way it works on Android is awful. If you hit the menu button mid-game - the game is ended then-and-there - no confirmation - no way to continue!? If you hit Back - the entire APP ends without warning and your game is lost If you get a call or switch to another APP and 4 Thrones is ended (by Android) - your game is also lost There's minimalist and there's doing half-a-job i

    Simple and addictive. Game length is perfect amount of time while on your own throne. Why oh why can't I mute sounds though?

    It's simple, fun and beautiful. What more do you need? And it's no longer low-res! But there are still some bugs. On my nexus 4, tapping the google play icon does nothing. And the google play icon is confusing. Check the google design assets for a nice white google play games icon (the gamepad) that fits with the design of game.

    Great great great great great great game. Design is amazing and simple, plays like a dream. Perfect take on solitaire. Also, back the kickstarter, physical cards of the black theme, are you kidding?? Do it!!!

    This is solitaire on mobile done right. Love the clean look and the myriad of themes to unlock. Though the persistent sign-in on start up is annoying, and there's the occasional bug where the restart icon remains on screen. Back button behaviour also needs some work.

    Really fun take on the Solitaire genre. There are a few graphical issues with the android version which the author has acknowledged and (hopefully) will fix, but the gameplay is really tight. Nice job making a unique game with the tried-and-true deck of cards.
