Solitaire is a very popular game whose different variations throughout the years have sprung up all over the world. Klondike is probably the most popular version and it is the one people learn from parents, grandparents and it is included in the small group of games that actually come when Windows purchased. Despite being that simple, Klondike Solitaire is the one of the “evergreen” games and it remains being entertaining.
The newest and the hottest
The last update is pretty much playable but it does not impress us, the players, much. The rates on the internet are pretty low, two-three stars are pretty much the biggest given rates. The game’s interface is simple but yet very attractive with the cards being displayed on a nicely patterned background. Unlike the other versions of the solitaire, Klondike does not allow customization of the game’s appearance, they obviously tried too many “one fits all” pieces of clothing and unfortunately liked it. It is disappointing when you can not switch from the boring deck of cards to something more interesting and also not changing the background color.
Graphics are good
As a matter of fact, graphics are actually decent and really the game itself is playable, but the problem here is that the program is lacking many features that make common part of the package to even the ground versions of solitaire. The fact there are no draw-one options, only draw-three makes everyone sad. There is available only one way of scoring, poor users can not double-click on their cards to send them to the foundation piles, imagine this: you got to, each card, drag and drop manually. This version of Klondike Solitaire isn’t bad in a pinch just that even the version that comes with Windows has more features. In fact. the only thing that is the least customisable is that cool jazz track that can be turned on and off. Klondike Solitaire does not have the Help file but it includes the short instructions for playing solitaire. The game is free but it also contains advertisements for some other games.
The brighter side is that this program installs and uninstalls without any problems.
When all upsides and downsides considered this version is not really bad. The ones who are starting to play solitaire should give a shot to this version because it is very basic and it teaches and gives you good foundations for more challenging versions.
