New Gadget-Size PC Solitaire Card Games

Share Article

Big game fun squeezed into a convenient size.

Red Mercury, developer and publisher of entertainment software, today released miniSolitaire(TM), the first full-featured, gadget-size solitaire card game for Microsoft Windows. Taking a cue from the conveniently-sized Windows gadgets, these new games are designed to easily integrate into your daily multitasking workflow.

As small as a credit card (and as thin as a photon), miniSolitaire fits nicely among other active desktop applications. Though small, miniSolitaire is densely packed with great game play features.

miniSolitaire introduces a new generation of mini-applications -- intuitive, useful programs that do not get in your way. Mini-applications are full featured, robust applications that launch quickly and exit quickly. The only thing mini is the graphical interface. And, if you want to make miniSolitaire big, you can resize it to be huge -- big enough to fill a 24 inch monitor and still look great.

  • Fun to play small. Cards are easy to read and moves are easy to execute no matter what size the game is played. The intellimove(TM) system has been specifically designed for mini-mode play.
  • Never gets in the way. miniSolitaire can be resized and positioned anywhere on the screen and when the game is not active, the game window gently fades away.
  • Instantly accessible. miniSolitaire launches instantly right where you left off and can be exited just as quickly enabling you to get back to other things. Every game played is automatically saved.

"Our focus is to design products that are simply enjoyable from the minute they are installed." explains Scott Corley, president/founder of Red Mercury. "miniSolitaire demonstrates the amount of detail that goes into a casual mini-game from the extensive game management system that tracks every game and every move to the scalable cards and game window."
