I really like the fact that Shape Solitaire takes the concept of Solitaire to a whole new level. You get to experience a very captivating replica of the original game. it looks new, and aesthetically pleasing, yet it feels familiar and you get the hang of it very quickly.

Shape Solitaire is not only one, but two games, or rather two versions of the same game. You get the classic mode and the arcade mode. The difference between the two is that the second gives you less time to think as the cards automatically move out of the deck and you have about 10 seconds to place them on the board before they disappear.

The layout and the shapes that Shape Solitaire presents are innovative and it is a welcome change, especially if you're a Solitaire fan that's played the old Windows Solitaire game.

one thing that is creates an especially pleasant atmosphere is the ambient music. The music does so much for the gameplay - it's relaxing, yet it keeps you running. There are only two tracks (they could have added a couple more).

What I would have liked to find in Shape Solitaire would be be more options, more customizability, different types of tournaments and activities... various challenges to undertake.


It's a really nice game that all Solitaire fans will enjoy, but you're paying 18$ for a Solitaire game - it's up to you to decide if it's worth it.
