Lake Tahoe, NV (PRWEB) June 8, 2006
Digital Smoke announces the release of Solitaire City v3.00 for Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP, a firm favorite amongst solitaire fans worldwide for the past nine years. Unlike most solitaire games, Solitaire City is played against the clock for points. The faster a game is completed, the higher the score. Players find themselves having "just one more game" long into the night as they try to battle their way to the top of one of the many online hi-score tables to see their nation's flag flying proudly next to their name as they stake their claim on the unenviable accolade of being Best Solitaire Player in The World.
Solitaire City is visually stunning with large, luxurious card graphics that swing and sway as they're dragged around the screen, casting shadows on the play area beneath. Dazzling particle effects and an impressive end of game fireworks display provide even more rewarding eye-candy. Additional high quality card sets in various sizes may be downloaded from the Solitaire City website or original designs can be crafted using the free Solitaire Setty card set creation tool. Everything in Solitaire City is fully customizable, from the card and background graphics to the music and amusing sound effects.
All the most popular solitaire games have been implemented such as Spider, FreeCell, Klondike, Yukon, Pyramid, Golf, Tri-Peaks and more, along with less familiar games such as Eliminator, Casket and Alternations. Numerous game rules such as Spider one, two and four suits and Russian Solitaire bring the total game variations to over 50. Learning the rules of an unfamiliar solitaire game can be tedious and confusing at the best of times but Solitaire City actually makes it fun using a unique training mode that teaches people how to play as they participate, pointing out valid moves and explaining the rules along the way.
Solitaire City's artificial intelligence points out when a game has blocked and it's time to give up, sparing the frustration of searching for a non-existent move. It can also point out the best move to play when the going gets tough, saving valuable time in the quest for a top score.
When Solitaire City fires up for the first time, it immediately becomes apparent that it's the result of many years of development, setting a new standard for solitaire games that's going to be hard to beat!
Solitaire City costs $22.95 via immediate download and is also available on CD-ROM for an additional $5 shipping.
