Are you a Solitaire fan? Good! Then you will be pleased to find out that you will now be able to play the golden oldie game on your iOS-compatible device.
Microsoft recently announced a new application for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. As you might have guessed it, the application is called Microsoft Solitaire Collection, and it is now available for download in Apple’s online store.
But wait! There’s, even more, good news. The application is free to download, and it includes all Solitaire-based games.
So, what kind of games are we talking about here? Let’s take a closer look at the Microsoft Solitaire Collection.
The first day you’ll be able to play is the ever-popular Klondike Classic. This is kind of your Solitaire boot camp since this game will help you learn how to play Solitaire like a pro. The rules are straightforward: you have to clear all the cards from the table. You can choose between one-card draws or three-card draws. Vegas Scoring is also available.
Moving on, the second game available in the package is Spider Solitaire. The game has the same rules as Klondike Solitaire – draw cards and clear the deck. However, the trick is to clear the table as fast as possible using fewer moves. Spider Solitaire has two modes: with four suits or with one suit.
Now, if you’re looking for a true challenge, you might want to try your hand at Freecell. Remember the creepy King figure that followed your mouse cursor? Well, the game is back. To win the game, you’ll need to strategically use the four free cells in order to move the cards around.
The fourth game includes in the Microsoft Solitaire Collection is Tripeaks. The game is won after you clear multiple tables before running out of hands.
Finally, the last game you’ll be able to play is Pyramid Solitaire. Select cards whose face value amount to thirteen and take them off the table. Again, the game ends when the table is clear.
The application in now available for download on Apple’s online store, and you can run it regardless of OS’s version.
Now, if you’re the proud owner of an Android-compatible device, don’t despair. The game is also available on Android and can be downloaded from Google’s Play Store.
