'Speed' is one of those games that are named differently at each town. So, to let everybody know what we're talking about, here's a brief explanation: each player gets four cards on his side, visible to both players. Two cards are placed in the middle. There aren't turns nor order. Everytime you can put a card on top of one of the cards in the middle, do it. To put a card it just has to be one point higher or lower. When no more cards can be played, new cards are dealt to the center. When you get rid of all your cards, you win.
This game features a somewhat "Survival mode" where the AI plays faster at each level you advance. Game pace is optimal and suited even for those who have never played this game before.
I don't want to start a topic about "how this game is played in my hometown", but there'd be deeply appreciated more game modes. For example, putting cards on your adversary's instead of in the middle. I also know people that play with four cards in the middle instead of two, or without wild cards, just to show a few examples. Speed is a game with a thousand faces and a million names, and there should be options to reach them all.
The other big thing that this game lacks is the possibility of playing two players at once, neither by wifi nor sharing the same screen. We hope that Tesseract Mobile has these suggestions in mind, because Speed Card Free is the best 'Speed' app we've found so far.
