    Lol! You're not serious right? The games are nothing alike apart from the rules (which are the same for all solitaire games). We call it "Windoze Solitaire" because we give the same games away for free (Klondike, Freecell and Spider).

    Gramps, what the hell am I paying you for?
    It's kinda hard to rip off solitaire there, man.

    Anyway, I took it to the pro of all things Solitaire (specially Windows solitaire), my mom, and she liked it. Found it easy to get into, fun to look at, and liked the loads and loads of games to choose from.

    The only complaint she had was the lack of a button to hit to complete the game when you have all your cards lined up ready to go in regular solitaire. You have to send them all up manually. Beyond that one little detail, she thought it was great.

    Hey Renzatic I'm really happy to hear your mum likes the game :)

    For the end of Klondike you can turn on a setting called "Foundation Tap Build" which means you can tap a card at the end to send it to the foundation. So while it's not an auto-complete it does make it easier to finish a game.

    We may include an auto-complete feature in a future update.

    Here are the latest reviews on the US App Store.

    Absolutely entrancing and CLEVER game *****
    by Linda UK - Windoze Solitaire - Version 1.0 - 01/08/2012
    All my family, and particularly me, love solitaire and have played quite a lot of versions. This is one of the best with so many extras it is hard to know where to start. It's very responsive and I like the background music too ( can be muted ) as it shuts out all but my thoughts. I have played the basic free version but have just bought a game set. All I can say is TRY IT !!!!!!!

    Superb! *****

    I've had the Eric Snider's Solitaire for quite some time and I've been very happy with it, coz I mainly play Solitaire and nothing more.
    I gave this one a shot. VERY WELL DONE guys. It's a very polished game and has tons if not all variations of card games that I've heard of. Very impressive! Definitely worth it!

    Yay! Yay! Yay! *****

    Omg, I've been wanting a solitaire pack game on my iPhone for so long but every one I've come across is always missing crucial games, but not this one! This one has them all! (Though I do wish Aces Up was included, but hopefully that's added in an update soon). Four Seasons and MONTANA! Omg MONTANA!

    The design and customization options are beautiful! This is the most perfect card game app ever! And best of all it has Game Center achievements!

    To the developer: I love you so freaking much! Thank you for making this app! I went ahead and bought the $6.99 All Game Packs IAP and I can't wait to see what the developer will add in the future. I'm so happy right now!

    Dig it! *****
