Summary

This is one of those games that just makes sense to be on the Nintendo Switch, It does a genre and one that fits. Saying that how can you not have touchscreen support! I mean imagine how much better it would be. That is my biggest gripe because leaderboards are a nice to have but not a must-have. Back to the game and it does exactly what you expect, It plays Spider Solitaire and does a really good job and never deviates away from it. Not much else to say really, If you like Spider Solitaire then winner if you don’t then don’t buy it.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
