Frustrating, Low End and Outdated
Poor graphics and terrible animation. The visual is flat and boring and there are no bells and whistles to make it interesting and fun. It is also slow to respond which makes the game cumbersome and long. The player’s time score will be longer than is normally expected with other Spider Solitaire games. There is no option for saving games and so you can’t shut down your computer and finish later. Once started, a game must be either finished or forfeited. The worst part is how badly it plays. The user has almost no control over the cards and you will find yourself fighting the automatic functions during the entire game. Don’t even think of trying to keep score, because the cards jump all over the place of their own accord, messing up you time and your score. When I try to make a move, the cards jump to a place i didn’t intend about 75% of the time. The options are also extremely limited. Unbelievably bad. It really, REALLY is possible to do a better job than this. There are some very good spider solitaire games on PC, on my iPhone and on my iPad - and some of the better games are free. This one seems like the games I used to play on some of the older computers from about 10 years ago or even longer. Very badly designed game with lots and lots of bugs. I might be OK with the limitations of this app if it were free, but when you pay good money, you kind of expect more than this. I keep trying to find the games I am used to and like, but I don’t think they are available on a Mac, even though they are on my Apple mobile devices. The only good feature of this game is that there are no ads, so that is something.
OK spider not great but good enough
Eliminating the option to put a K on an Ace limits the variables. Less challenging- you either get the cards or not.Cards move a bit slowly so double the time you expect to achieve from other spider games.
Easy to see cards. Works great. Just wish there was an option for saving games in play.
Excellent Spider Solitaire
Great version of Spider Solitaire for OSX. You can play either One, Two or four suits. Nothing more to say. Excellent!
