You all know how this works, don't you? Complete each Solitaire puzzle made up by piles of cards, taking cards from the deck and putting them in order (from king to ace) alternating colors. That easy.
Solitaire by 1bsyl has been set in a good-looking layout. Screentouch response, which is probably the most important in this kind of drag&drop games, works properly. What's more, from settings you can customize parameters to your liking (audio, orientation, display score, display moves, time, doble-clicking, deal cards 1by1 or 3by3.... and much more). You can even set text colors, fullscreen view, background and other appearance issues.
The game includes some statistics about your games, how many moves you did and your highest scores. You can undo and restart easily thanks to the dock-buttons at the bottom. Finally, there's a changelog (bulb icon) where the enhancements introduced after each update will be shown.
In a few words: a highly customizable Solitaire which cute graphics and an excellent screentouch response. We're missing though online leaderboards to submit best marks and, perhaps, more different game modes.
Taking a shuffled standard 52-card deck of playing cards (without Jokers), one upturned card is dealt on the left of the playing area, then six downturned cards (from left to right). On top of the downturned cards, an upturned card is dealt on the left-most downturned pile, and downturned cards on the rest until all piles have an upturned card. The piles should look like the figure to the right.
The four foundations (light rectangles in the upper right of the figure) are built up by suit from Ace (low in this game) to King, and the tableau piles can be built down by alternate colors, and partial or complete piles can be moved if they are built down by alternate colors also. Any empty piles can be filled with a King or a pile of cards with a King. The point of the game is to build up a stack of cards starting with 2 and ending with King, all of the same suit. Once this is accomplished, the goal is to move this to a foundation, where the player has previously placed the Ace of that suit. Once the player has done this, they will have "finished" that suit- the goal being, of course, to finish all suits, at which time the player will have won.

Don't know why it isn't better reviewed. Be nice if landscape layout were less cluttered, and I don't care how many moves I make, but neither is any big deal.
A great application! So fun to play. Keeps one busy & their mind alert & on point all day! A great way to exercise those brain cells!
Great game love it
