Mostly love it
by Hegemon16 on 2019/07/22 14:50
Love the variety of card games! Two issues I ran into: first, the game stops working when asked to leave a review. I have to delete and reinstall for it to work. Second, it starts slowing down significantly after a while. Same fix of having to delete and reinstall. Hope this gets solved soon!
Spades King Lite
by CNessa56 on 2019/05/28 22:12
I enjoy the game but after playing for awhile, it will show a ratings page that cannot be accessed or deleted. You then have to reinstall to play the game. VERY-FRUSTRATING.
Fun!
by Spiga357 on 2019/05/10 07:33
Learned how to play bid wiz thanks to this only negative so far is pop up for rating doesn’t work. Have to enter so store to leave review.
Bad deal
by Mgtlb on 2019/04/11 04:55
Have not been able to get the app to open since the update. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it. But nothing happens.
Cards
by LadyMyLexus on 2019/04/04 21:06
This game is fun, I love bid whist I’m a card player. Why does it keep asking you to rate the app (game) then it’s stuck on when you try to rate. It won’t let you do anything. I have to turn my phone off and back on to play the game. I’m thinking I can play, once it’s back on. You are asked to rate the app and it’s stuck again. I give up. Please fix this problem Right now it let me rate but not back to the game SMH
Game freezing up on rate game page
by mz rob on 2019/02/15 22:29
I often choose not to review games, but this game has been freezing up on the rate game page. I have been unable to leave that page, unless I uninstall the game, then reinstall it. I left a message for the game developer, but have not heard anything in past 2 days.
Spades
by rscotty33 on 2019/01/08 17:32
A little different from the way I play the game but I’m learning. One thing, it has to many commercials.
Deleted game!
by MikB611 on 2018/12/28 16:38
Too many long ads! Game is not good enough to purchase..
Not Worth It (and it’s free)
by Sadbad on 2018/11/17 21:13
The Spades game i used to play was really good, but it is no longer supported. This was recommended by the manufacturer of that previous game. This is the worst!!! The AI strategy is to play “give-away,” and I couldn’t win a game at all. I switched from the partners version to single player and now I can’t lose because I know the other AI players play to lose. It’s boring, and I am losing my skill to play properly. Looking for a new game...
30 second ads between hands???
by Sangresolo on 2018/11/01 04:17
Spades is supposed to be a decently paced game. Having an ad in between every hand, especially when those ads are as long as 30 seconds, takes the fun out of the game. Also, your scoring system is off. There was a hand where I bid 5 and my partner bid 5. I got 4 and my partner got 6. We made our total of ten, but we also got a bag in the hand. That isn’t right. One last thing... the AI is terrible. If I bid nil, the AI will lead low cards after they took a trick of the same suit wasting a high card. For example, 2C is lead, I play 6C, then 5C is played, and my partner plays the AC. Partner then leads 3C. What the ???
Latest update is unrecognizable
by DuckWalk512 on 2018/09/22 15:36
Magmic's Spades was my go-to game. Solid AI; lots of options mixing up opponents and level of play. This version is not an update but a complete replacement, and a move in the wrong direction. They broke something that needed zero fixing beyond a small tweak or two. In short, the UI and AI are unplayable for anyone who knows how to play. Removed from my phone and looking for a replacement. Can only hope they go back to what worked.
Unhappy with my purchase
by ThePowerwriter on 2018/07/15 00:49
after I bought this app I discovered that it has a lot of very serious bugs. For one thing, it gives you 10 bags on solo games. It should be only five bags. Also, you can tell that the robots are not playing the way real players would play. they do not throw out the cards that people do it real games. So you are not getting accurate practice. Hopefully the developer Will correct these issues and in the meantime I suggest you do not purchase this app.
Bags way too easy to get
by Chuba216 on 2018/06/14 03:10
The bags are calculated per player and not per team, so you can get set and still develop bags in a round. This doesn’t seem fair and is not natural as nobody plays like that in real life. And the opponents are so easy. It’s like they are not even trying to play.
Terrible partner
by meremerr on 2018/05/15 20:29
Gameplay is simple and appealing. My partner though, is terrible. Who leads a 2 when their partner is blind nil? Or breaks the spade when they themselves are nil? I don’t understand.
AI has IQ of 45!
by CPTAMP on 2018/05/10 15:38
While this program could be good the AI is just as stupid as it can get! Come on guys program this so it’s challenging and fun.
Really?
by WahooSnevets on 2018/05/06 12:46
Game play really is bad. Like playing with kids who don't know how to play the game. AI gameplay is just to unrealistic. Feels like you don't have a teammate and it's just you playing against 3 players to make you teams bids. Teammate bids 8 and starts giving away books and only makes 1 book? Who does that. Or bids 0 and starts off with ace or has the highest spade Ace in his hand. These are just a couple of examples of bad AI play.
Bring back Spades King
by Cincy44er on 2018/04/20 01:30
This new version is horrible. Why did you go and mess things up? I’ve been trying to find another decent spades app since this one is nowhere near as good as the earlier version. Was this meant to be for small children? Horrible
Please update
by Atl Gma on 2018/04/02 20:57
I played this game daily when on previous IOS v11. The logic now on how the computer players play the game makes no sense. Opponents have aces but won’t (or don’t) play them, have trump but does not cut when appropriate often cutting out their own partner when it’s not necessary. Wish someone would take a look at this and give it good old upgrade!! Thanks
The ads are horrible
by Nonna3132 on 2018/03/17 04:36
Enough said in the title, I don’t mind ads but why can’t I just click the X and get back to my game. I have to close out the game to clear an ad. Fix that!!
Old Version Was Much Better....
by GoGo Dave on 2018/03/14 05:05
Are there any plans on porting the old version of Magmic’s Spades game to iOS11? I loved playing it everyday. This version is almost unplayable. What happened? I will gladly pay a fair price for a game that plays like the old version....
More adds than game time
by Imonfire999 on 2018/02/20 22:49
So many adds I just can’t enjoy this game anymore 😞
Love this app
by dc1958 on 2018/02/19 02:28
Fun
Makes no sense
by Pinkangel97 on 2018/02/06 00:53
The AI has no concept of how to play this game. One player can have the game top 3 spades yet only bid one. It's hard to bid when you have to figure in "the stupid play" factor. There is no challenge what's so ever to this game. At least you can chose to play as an individual so you aren't stuck with a clueless partner. I like the interface of this game better than others. But this one offers no challenge.
Stupid AI
by Revtrin on 2018/01/30 15:04
I enjoy almost everything about this game except for the idiotic AI. It’s fast. It’s free. But it’s stress inducing. Not what you look for in a game. The worst gameplay is when your partner bids Nil or Blind Nil and leads with an Ace. The reverse is equally horrible. Every time I bid Nil my partner leads with low cards. It’d be nice to have some cover instead of having my partner trying to undermine me. I mean really. This is basic strategy. Fix it.
Fun but partners terrible
by Ncsugirl2001 on 2018/01/28 20:02
I like that this game gives different options for the versions of spades. However, the computer partners are horrible even on the difficult level.
Simple Spades has missed the mark with this update
by Whowants2 on 2018/01/15 23:50
I normally don’t write reviews for apps because I usually feel like people can make up their own minds without reading what I have to say, but on this app I felt like I needed to break my own rule. I have been a long time user of the older version of this spades game. I actually held off upgrading my IOS version when I got a message that this older version would not run on v11 of IOS. But alas a new cell phone forced me to the new version of both. I must say this version of the game misses the mark badly. They took away the ability to “pick” your level of opponent hence you lose the ability of choosing the AI personality to play against. This new version I have found on both hard and hardest level they AI spends so much time trying to give you bags it rarely makes it own bid. I have played at least a dozen games so far and I have yet to see my opponent with a positive score. Then speaking of scoring. They have changed the scoring or bags taking away the idea of “team” and making even your partner play low to not get bags even if you bid nil. Of which the old version game you a 100 points for and this one gives you 50 with no way to set it how you want. Overall I used to play this game for stress relief now I find myself more stressed after trying to play it. My advice, pass this version up. I feel robbed having paid again for this update just to have the ads removed.
Too many ads and not as good as old app
by Bladehunter on 2018/01/13 21:34
The older version was great. This one has more ads than game. Maybe it's time to look at your competitors games. Thanks for the memories. Decided to try your app one more time as I truly loved the previous version. One thing that I really dislike about your new version is having to touch a card twice. The old app also was more pleasing to the eye. With a few changes to make it a seamless change from the old app and you may have a winner.
Went from OK to bad with last update
by mzives on 2018/01/11 00:16
There were always some quirks in the game logic but it was tolerable. Since last update, logic is out the window, making game impossible to play. Obviously, programmers have never actually played the game.
Disappointed!!
by StampingCatNut on 2017/12/30 19:22
My all time favorite Spades game, made by the same company, no longer works on my newest iOS. I decided to try this one because it’s made by the same developer. It is NOTHING like the other game! Even on the ‘hardest’ level I feel like I am playing 6 year olds! I want to scream at the DUMB moves the (goofy looking) players make, especially my partner!!!! UGH!!!!! I WANT MY OLD SPADES GAME BACK!!!!
Very disappointed
by cm2echo on 2017/12/28 23:49
I've been playing Spades King for several years and loved it! I haven't updated to iOS 11 yet so I can still play it. Simple Spades stinks. I have it set for most difficult play and it's like the AI opponents are playing to lose, really, 500 to -1200?! Why can't Spades King be updated to work with iOS 11? I will have to find a diffent app when I update my iOS
What happened?
by sdiddy_mc on 2017/12/28 12:54
I used to play this game all the time. It was quick and the AI was pretty good. You could fool it from time to time but all in all it felt similar to how friends play. Now the AI is incredibly frustrating. It’s gone the complete opposite and seems like they are willing to take sets just to load bags on you. And the new point system is TERRIBLE. I’ve been playing Spades for 20 years and have played all kinds of crazy house rules... never once have I played with anyone that counted bags by individual team member. If my team bids seven and takes seven we shouldn’t be penalized just because I took one less and my partner took one more than our bids. That’s a big part of the game...working together to make your bid. All that system does is add more bags in to the game and drags them out. And for some reason nil bids are only worth 50 now? What’s the point? Might as well just bid the one in your hand than try and dump it because the risk-reward just isn’t there. Bummer to lose a game I’ve been enjoying playing for years
Game is fun, but way too many ads.
by Ilovedogs22 on 2017/12/25 20:36
Long ads between each turn gets old real fast, if you can deal with that it's a decent card game.
Worst game ever
by Kennz4q on 2017/12/23 20:35
I’ve been told a computer is only as smart as it’s programmer, well you better bypass this one!!!
Fun but flawed
by happibunni on 2017/12/22 06:49
It would be great if the game gave you an option to change levels in the middle of a game. As of now, if you start a game going to a 300 score, you have to finish that game before going on. Also, what is this with your partner sabotaging your books?! Aren’t we supposed to be a team? I allow my partner a book and the next play, they cut mine! Then we’re both penalized. Who plays like that! Needs work to be a TRUE spades game.
ADS
by Ellsgtmortar on 2017/12/19 16:45
TO MANY ADS. ADS AFTER EACH HAND PLAYED. DELETED
Who’s my partner
by FreeEBiird on 2017/12/19 02:20
The game play is simple but the program needs work. My partner is constantly trumping my high cards and causing us to be set. If I have won the trick it should not auto throw high cards. If playing teams the teammate should act like it is on the team. I go nil and the partner leads with a 2???
Disappointed
by Marie’s Macbook on 2017/12/15 03:07
I, too, like the others have been playing this game for a while. I was forced to upgrade and was truly disappointed with the new interface, game play and options menu. You used to be able to change everything off the main menu, now you have to go to a separate menu to change game play. I concur with the other gamers that note the players have become stupid. Who bids zero with the ace of spades in their hands. Also, I witnessed the opponents make counter productive moves against each other. I have gotten really frustrated with the game where I am going to uninstall it and try another spades game.
Perfect!
by Arthur_Dent on 2017/12/14 19:23
I enjoyed the game. Like the title suggests it's a simple game and that’s how I like it. You just bid and play spades.
Spades
by Ratherhike on 2017/12/13 04:35
Very enjoyable!
I love it!
by 1Nephi11 on 2017/12/13 01:48
Great game
Hate the new version!!!
by PADWMN on 2017/12/06 14:59
Loved the old game. Would play for hours. Now it is childish and ridiculous- not to mention all the ads. Deleting the app.
Look elsewhere for spades
by brooksflow on 2017/12/05 02:39
Look elsewhere for spades games. Updates keep making game worse. Last update broke the game anyway. Will delete. Review update: recent update fixed launch, but waiting 30 seconds between hands makes gameplay unbearable. Will finally delete without regrets.
What the heck
by Brk61 on 2017/12/05 00:17
After the last update the app downloads then goes right back to my home screen! Before that I enjoyed it
Spades lite
by Rayfinn on 2017/12/03 23:26
Latest iOS and now it is broken😥
Zero Stars
by coolgirlAva on 2017/12/03 08:31
After upgrade, can’t open the program. How do I get a refund?
Dec 2nd update broke the app
by CharlesMcL on 2017/12/03 04:03
App is unreliable after update.
Garbage
by run away from this game on 2017/12/02 05:46
Your game is garbage now. Used to be great. Just installed new update and game won’t even play - just keeps hanging and being unresponsive. Looks cheap, plays cheap. You had a great game and then you killed it. Everyone on your team should be fired.
Bad update just terrible game was good before
by Tunaforsale on 2017/11/26 08:16
Will never play this game again just terrible plz go back to what it was before last update
Needs improvement
by B J Fan on 2017/11/21 15:07
Spade king was much better. Help section is not helpful, I would love to be able to change the settings for the way I play spades.
Completely changed
by Lisa Prusha on 2017/11/21 14:56
Deleting this app now. The computer partners stink and there is an ad after every deal. I realize it’s a feee app and expect some ads but that’s overkill. Not worth your time.
Disappointed
by Fredbillionaire on 2017/11/11 01:02
Please bring back Spades King. It was by far the best spades game in the App Store. Why wasn’t the game upgraded instead of replaced? Biggest mistake the developers ever made.
Better than others
by Kbrown123 on 2017/11/09 12:49
I️ like to play fast without all of the graphics and slow dealing. This is better than others I️ have tried. I️ wish I️ could see the score when I️ am bidding.
Bring back the old spades
by Country atom on 2017/10/30 23:24
Don’t like double tapping to play a card. The opponents don’t play intelligently. The score sheet is hard to figure out compared to the old format. I played the old spades almost obsessively and I have yet to finish a game with this new one.
Poor new version
by Colliers5 on 2017/10/28 18:56
This new version is juvenile and slow. The graphics are poor and it takes forever to play a round. The scoring isn't even the same. Used to play all the time now I'm looking for a different ap.
Terrible update
by spadesplayer1990 on 2017/10/20 01:12
I agree with everyone else. I enjoyed the old version and now I can't choose characters and I have to double tap cards. The whole look is like a cheap version of the old game. I will start looking for a new spades because I don't even like playing this version.
Lame
by JG Seamus on 2017/10/17 19:22
Bring back the old one. Your partner under cuts you when you go nil instead of covering you. Not a good at all.
Won’t open
by Susie Poland on 2017/10/15 00:36
Downloaded but keep getting prompt to connect but doesn’t work. Unfortunate because it was a good game
Simple!
by Musical Cordie on 2017/10/14 03:31
This card game is really fun. The graphics are cute and really easy to work with and around. The fact it's free makes me happy too. This may replace my favorite solitaire app!
Back up but not quite a 5 yet!
by JustMy2Senses on 2017/10/14 02:00
Another new review 10/13/2017 Yay! You've fixed a lot of the issues (and the most serious issues) that I complained about in my last review. Thank you! There are still a few things that detract from my enjoyment, but the game is once again playable. Remaining issues: 1) Scoring is mostly fixed, but you are only giving 50 points for winning nil bid. It should be 100 for nil and 200 for blind nil. 2) If you've done anything about #2 below, I can't figure out how to make it work. 3) Fixed! The ai players still make some dumb moves, but it's not enough to ruin the game. 4) still no change. I'd like to see an OK button at the bid to make sure I've not fat-fingered the wrong bid. 5) fixed. Thank you. I can now easily find the spades again. 6) I'll stop whining about the ai player icons. Not a biggie. 7) I was too frustrated to notice this before, but it would be nice if after a hand the app would wait for me to look at the score and review the hand before loading the ad. Maybe when the user clicks on the OK button to start the next deal? Some things I like about the game: - I have bad eyes (and play on a small screen) so the larger numbers are great. - the game no longer crashes if I get called away in the middle of a hand and have to close the app. - I notice that a lot of the ads now have mute buttons. Yay! I play a lot at night, but need to hear if I get an actual phone call, so I like to be able to mute the ads. I am really impressed that you not only fixed so many of the things I mentioned in my last review, but also took the time to respond to me. Thank you! It shows that you value your users. Previous review 9/25/2017 Four years ago you took this game from a sucky game to a great one, now you've made it sucky again! Here are the things you've ruined: 1) Scoring is screwed up. For standard spades it should be 10 bags for the penalty, not 5; you can no longer play to 500 points; you can't easily see bid/made per player. Although unless you fix what you broke, I don't think I'd want to play long enough to get to 500. :( 2) you can't see/check the score summary during hand play. There is an icon in the corner of the screen that looks a little like a scoreboard, but it doesn't work. You can't even go back over the score for the past hands any more. 3) The computer players make stupid plays, like trumping partner's ace or discarding when player should Trump to make the bid. I don't think I've ever seen so many tricks taken by an 8 or below. 4) The game makes you confirm every play, which is ok, I guess, but not the bid. Be consistent. 5) Hand layout puts spades in the middle of the hand. They should be on either end (i.e. either SHDC or CDHS). 6) The graphics aren't even as good as they used to be. ------------- (4 years ago--must have been 2013) So this is the new review. I saw there was an update--didn't say what the fix was, but I decided to try it again. Fixed! The game is now allowing you to play to game (500 points) rather than stopping at 3 hands. In the meantime, I downloaded ALL the other free Spades games, and this one is far and away the best. Way to go! --------------------------------------------- (Old review) Up until the last upgrade, I would have rated this game a 5. Great graphics, good play, ability to review last play. But with the last upgrade, game is limited to 3 hands, not 500 points. Yuck! If this doesn't get reversed soon, I'm deleting it from my phone.
Favorite spades game to use
by Nicolas435 on 2017/10/13 15:48
This game has smooth gameplay and nice graphics that aren’t like the other out of date looking spade games. It’s a fun game for anybody who likes playing cards online.
A must have game!!
by Metalmouse08 on 2017/10/13 15:24
I’m happy to see there’s another free card game out there other than poker or bridge. Sometimes I just want something quick and easy to play between classes.
Love this game!!
by MarkGlazer on 2017/10/12 02:59
A challenging and fun game if you like old school spades, or even solitaire/bridge/spades/ euchre card games.
Nice game
by Ztolle on 2017/10/12 00:01
If you're a card shark or just a casual player, this ranks right up there with other great online spades, poker, and bridge card games. It's a fun free spades game
Ugly
by Eyal Minsky-Fenick on 2017/10/11 23:19
With new version, hands are no longer sorted with spades at left. The new UI is ugly as sin; the old one was less cluttered. The statistics are gone. Do not update. Developers have responded. I remain unsatisfied. They fixed the sorting order a little, but there is no option to sort high on left or high on right. Old version was high on left. Please, developers, just let us play the old version!
The dang ads!!
by Ajonesmem on 2017/10/11 22:48
How can one get rid of the ads and just play the game??!! I loved the old version, the new version just isn’t it.
Love a good game of spades
by Marth Sasquatch 211 on 2017/10/11 20:47
This spades game really grew on me. I love the UI compared to other online spades games, and the fact that it's just a lot of fun.
Great spades game!
by FlyingBeaver5 on 2017/10/11 20:47
I'm a HUGE fan of spades and this is the app a card shark like me has been looking for! Playing is easy and fun.
What happened?
by tayb1994 on 2017/10/07 03:06
The gameplay is horrible. It’s like the computers don’t even know how to play spades. I can no longer look at my previous hand, like before the update. I like the updated display. Just keep the original features.
Horrible Update
by Tallgirl42 on 2017/10/03 22:01
I am now deleting this app. The update made the game look cheesy and cheap. It is no longer fun to play and takes too long to complete one hand! Awful
Needs a lot work.
by LasVegasSeamus on 2017/10/02 19:25
The old game was so much better. When you go and mil your partner undercuts you and forces you to take a book like he's your opponent. The scoring to win the game is way too low.
What the heck???
by Keverhart on 2017/10/02 02:14
Worst update ever. They took one of the better game apps and dumbed it down to the point of inanity. You had NO competition before this update, now it is just another crappy app.
Why did they completely redo the game?
by Josiedoesit on 2017/09/30 16:39
This new version, and technically new game is just terrible. I played simple Spades because it was just SIMPLE. Now, they added a whole new look and feel, but it’s much worse. Here’s why: The game is absolutely slower, the cards being thrown out, selecting bids, and going to the next hand. The game is over animated: why? I can’t even stand to look at the characters because they look like cartoons. I can’t select who I want to play against: In the old game, I could select the players in the game. Thats now gone. They were also based on difficulty. Honestly, I had better games versus a medium and hard difficulty than two hard opponents. They right combination of conservative and aggressive. I played this game all the time. It was my time away from bs life for a few minutes. Now, that is gone because to play this new game, I’ve got to spend an hour waiting for how slow it is, and get upset about how stupid this update was. At least make the old version available for download. Thanks.
Sad
by BigdaddyLawdog on 2017/09/28 13:32
I am considering deleting the app. It used to be enjoyable now it isn't. Not just the ridiculous amount of ads but the game itself is just different in a bad way. If I wanted that kind of experience I would have downloaded it. I liked the old version and will look for something similar.
Hate it
by annaplao on 2017/09/27 18:45
Would give a zero if i could. The game was great the way it was. Now it’s like a cartoon for kids with a totally different interface that is so frustrating to those who had been enjoying the app for YEARS. A good app was lost by adding stupid comic faces and cards that zoom in and out with every move. Incredibly disappointing.
Use to love playing
by Wolfcubs88 on 2017/09/27 18:35
Yuck hate the last update! No fun anymore deleting game
Words Cannot Express How Upset Am
by NY Cowboy Bob on 2017/09/26 22:00
Really NO STARS. First off, there was no update to the paid version, so I can no longer open it. Then you replace a classy version with nice graphics to this juvenile graphic version. Truly will never get another app from magmic again. I enjoyed the old version for many years. It was a part of my daily experience. This is absolutely disappointing and sad.
What happened to Spades King?!
by March 1 2016 Reviewer on 2017/09/26 16:23
I used to have Spades King, which was a decent game despite too many ads. Today it updated and was replaced with Simple Spades, which is just awful. Dumbest AI I've ever seen and minus a lot of the nice features of Spades King like the score graph and hand histories. Terrible, terrible game now!
Spades
by Archy39 on 2017/09/26 16:12
I like the older game better.
Horrible players, even worse update!!!!
by Baldman5150515077 on 2017/09/26 02:05
This new update is horrible. They changed the entire game to new rules, new scoring, new AI players that play worse than the old ones. Whoever was in charge of this update has absolutely NO idea of how to play spades and I honestly think they only did this to piss us off. Been playing for a long time and have simply expected my partner to play like a fool. I enjoy the game to an extent, but the cards they play really blow my mind. I like playing the "wiz" rules the most, you bid either how many spades you have, or nil. At least one time in every game, my partner, or an opponent will bid nil when they have 6 spades in their hand. It makes absolutely no sense and is an obvious flaw in the game. Other times, I lead trump because we need the rest of the tricks to get our bid. My partner will have high trump, but plays low and allows opps to take the trick, getting us set. They throw off regularly instead of taking tricks, getting us set even more. It gets very frustrating. So if you are not ready to pull your hair out due to poor playing partners, don't download this app. The makers of this program need to sit down with real players, experienced players, and take a lot of notes.
ADS KILL THE GAME
by Here N GA on 2017/09/23 15:06
The game itself is super. BUT there are entirely too many pop up ads to enjoy playing. Why not add an option to pay to opt-out of the ads?
Ads Free Version Gone
by Dewshawt on 2017/09/22 00:51
I’ve had the ads free version for years but since the iOS 11 release its been incompatible. It appears that the lite version was updated but I don’t want to deal with all the adds, especially since I’ve paid to not do so.
iOS 11 update
by Quuueball on 2017/09/20 13:42
The paid version is telling me it’s not compatible with the new iOS 11. I see the lite version has updated, what about those that paid?
Update messed up the game!
by LindyMth on 2017/08/03 23:43
What the heck did you do??? I have played this for years and loved it! I accidentally updated it today and now the font is so small I can barely get my little finger to hit the right card. Plus the commercials are ridiculous. I'm going to delete the game
Not motivated to buy the add free app
by Bjg87 on 2017/07/10 14:59
The lite version has the worst glitches. I would go into detail but all of the other reviews seem to cover it. If the free edition has this many problems, I can't see purchasing the pay app
Boo!
by chasemypaige on 2017/06/09 13:22
Crashes every time you have to watch a video for a coin and the game is lost. There is no way to opt out of watching the video so you can only play one hand at a time because the video comes up after each hand.
Yuck
by Mcfish1 on 2017/06/04 03:10
Something is seriously wrong with this game. I had the spades king game and they quit fixing it and now this version pops up with stupid loud videos in the middle of my spades game trying to make me buy things I don't want. Fix the other version and get rid of this crud I paid for an ad free version not this garbage I would not give it even one star but the stupid thing wouldn't let me post my comment without giving it a star. Total money grubbing yuck...they really ruined a great game
App Needs to be fixed

Shrunken spades
by Ansalot on 2017/05/30 22:58
I don't like updating my games because when I do it screws up something one way or another. Well I updated my spades game, big mistake, all of the fonts and screens have shrunk to at least half the size they used to be. This used to be my favorite game. I even endured the commercials that I got from the last update I did. But this, the game is so small that you pick the wrong cards and make mistakes all the time. You can't go back and do a do over so you end up losing a lot of your games. Please fix this problem! But even if you do I'll be really leery of trusting the next update
Not happy
by malveyd on 2017/05/12 23:41
Since the update I can't finish a game. Screen goes blank and games closes and shuts down.
Seriously?!?
by The Almighty Mattski on 2017/04/29 23:15
I'm in the middle of a null bid; my partner leads a 2-spades and I end up taking the trick. THE VERY NEXT HAND they throw the King?!? What kind of imbecile programs this crap? And this sort of thing happens ALL THE TIME! Deleting this game before my blood pressure gives me a stroke...
Concern
by Hey Berta on 2017/04/26 11:03
The numbers & letters are smaller. Why?
Spades
by Like the app, but the glitches on 2017/04/24 13:16
4/24/17 I love Spades, but this new upgrade in the past couple of days on my iPhone, the screen and the layout is so small compared to previous installments. You need glasses just to read the wording. Disappointed, why did you shrink the screen.
Way too many ads!
by jcornelio123 on 2017/04/07 01:25
The previous versions were decent, and limited ads. Now, its ad after ad, 30 seconds in between hands! Very annoying. It is not worth playing it. I am uninstalling the app...
Waaaaay too many ads!
by Ladyparker09 on 2017/03/29 16:26
I downloaded this app for maybe 10 minutes before I realized that there are way too many ads. After each hand they make you watch a 15 second ad. No thanks. Uninstalling now
Less than zero
by muttdog on 2017/03/07 03:46
That's what I'd like to rate this game. Long annoying ads make unbearable to play. Deleted!
ADS MAKE GAME UNPLAYABLE
by revgsmitty on 2017/03/04 03:36
This update has made the game unplayable with ads after every hand that are longer than it takes to play a hand. In removing it from my iPad and iPhone.
Horrible
by DurtyRice on 2017/02/19 14:08
It takes longer to watch the adds than to actually play the game! I mean did I come to play the game or watch the adds???
30 seconds ads?!
by kimbull on 2017/02/13 00:39
Who actually has the patience to play this game. What a disappointment.
Ad's galore
by Repeat ad hater 2082017 on 2017/02/09 05:04
OMG what an ad nightmare. Literally the same ad at least twice in a row. Always a 30 second ad between hands and then 30 second ad to end the game and then another 30 second ad to start a new one. Deleting this game due to developer greed.
Game freezing up on rate game page
by mz rob on 2019/02/15 22:29
I often choose not to review games, but this game has been freezing up on the rate game page. I have been unable to leave that page, unless I uninstall the game, then reinstall it. I left a message for the game developer, but have not heard anything in past 2 days.
Simple Spades has missed the mark with this update
by Whowants2 on 2018/01/15 23:50
I normally don’t write reviews for apps because I usually feel like people can make up their own minds without reading what I have to say, but on this app I felt like I needed to break my own rule. I have been a long time user of the older version of this spades game. I actually held off upgrading my IOS version when I got a message that this older version would not run on v11 of IOS. But alas a new cell phone forced me to the new version of both. I must say this version of the game misses the mark badly. They took away the ability to “pick” your level of opponent hence you lose the ability of choosing the AI personality to play against. This new version I have found on both hard and hardest level they AI spends so much time trying to give you bags it rarely makes it own bid. I have played at least a dozen games so far and I have yet to see my opponent with a positive score. Then speaking of scoring. They have changed the scoring or bags taking away the idea of “team” and making even your partner play low to not get bags even if you bid nil. Of which the old version game you a 100 points for and this one gives you 50 with no way to set it how you want. Overall I used to play this game for stress relief now I find myself more stressed after trying to play it. My advice, pass this version up. I feel robbed having paid again for this update just to have the ads removed.
What happened?
by sdiddy_mc on 2017/12/28 12:54
I used to play this game all the time. It was quick and the AI was pretty good. You could fool it from time to time but all in all it felt similar to how friends play. Now the AI is incredibly frustrating. It’s gone the complete opposite and seems like they are willing to take sets just to load bags on you. And the new point system is TERRIBLE. I’ve been playing Spades for 20 years and have played all kinds of crazy house rules... never once have I played with anyone that counted bags by individual team member. If my team bids seven and takes seven we shouldn’t be penalized just because I took one less and my partner took one more than our bids. That’s a big part of the game...working together to make your bid. All that system does is add more bags in to the game and drags them out. And for some reason nil bids are only worth 50 now? What’s the point? Might as well just bid the one in your hand than try and dump it because the risk-reward just isn’t there. Bummer to lose a game I’ve been enjoying playing for years
Why did they completely redo the game?
by Josiedoesit on 2017/09/30 16:39
This new version, and technically new game is just terrible. I played simple Spades because it was just SIMPLE. Now, they added a whole new look and feel, but it’s much worse. Here’s why: The game is absolutely slower, the cards being thrown out, selecting bids, and going to the next hand. The game is over animated: why? I can’t even stand to look at the characters because they look like cartoons. I can’t select who I want to play against: In the old game, I could select the players in the game. Thats now gone. They were also based on difficulty. Honestly, I had better games versus a medium and hard difficulty than two hard opponents. They right combination of conservative and aggressive. I played this game all the time. It was my time away from bs life for a few minutes. Now, that is gone because to play this new game, I’ve got to spend an hour waiting for how slow it is, and get upset about how stupid this update was. At least make the old version available for download. Thanks.
Cards
by LadyMyLexus on 2019/04/04 21:06
This game is fun, I love bid whist I’m a card player. Why does it keep asking you to rate the app (game) then it’s stuck on when you try to rate. It won’t let you do anything. I have to turn my phone off and back on to play the game. I’m thinking I can play, once it’s back on. You are asked to rate the app and it’s stuck again. I give up. Please fix this problem Right now it let me rate but not back to the game SMH
Disappointed
by Marie’s Macbook on 2017/12/15 03:07
I, too, like the others have been playing this game for a while. I was forced to upgrade and was truly disappointed with the new interface, game play and options menu. You used to be able to change everything off the main menu, now you have to go to a separate menu to change game play. I concur with the other gamers that note the players have become stupid. Who bids zero with the ace of spades in their hands. Also, I witnessed the opponents make counter productive moves against each other. I have gotten really frustrated with the game where I am going to uninstall it and try another spades game.
30 second ads between hands???
by Sangresolo on 2018/11/01 04:17
Spades is supposed to be a decently paced game. Having an ad in between every hand, especially when those ads are as long as 30 seconds, takes the fun out of the game. Also, your scoring system is off. There was a hand where I bid 5 and my partner bid 5. I got 4 and my partner got 6. We made our total of ten, but we also got a bag in the hand. That isn’t right. One last thing... the AI is terrible. If I bid nil, the AI will lead low cards after they took a trick of the same suit wasting a high card. For example, 2C is lead, I play 6C, then 5C is played, and my partner plays the AC. Partner then leads 3C. What the ???

Unhappy with my purchase
by ThePowerwriter on 2018/07/15 00:49
after I bought this app I discovered that it has a lot of very serious bugs. For one thing, it gives you 10 bags on solo games. It should be only five bags. Also, you can tell that the robots are not playing the way real players would play. they do not throw out the cards that people do it real games. So you are not getting accurate practice. Hopefully the developer Will correct these issues and in the meantime I suggest you do not purchase this app.
Mostly love it
by Hegemon16 on 2019/07/22 14:50
Love the variety of card games! Two issues I ran into: first, the game stops working when asked to leave a review. I have to delete and reinstall for it to work. Second, it starts slowing down significantly after a while. Same fix of having to delete and reinstall. Hope this gets solved soon!
Too many ads and not as good as old app
by Bladehunter on 2018/01/13 21:34
The older version was great. This one has more ads than game. Maybe it's time to look at your competitors games. Thanks for the memories. Decided to try your app one more time as I truly loved the previous version. One thing that I really dislike about your new version is having to touch a card twice. The old app also was more pleasing to the eye. With a few changes to make it a seamless change from the old app and you may have a winner.
Fun but flawed
by happibunni on 2017/12/22 06:49
It would be great if the game gave you an option to change levels in the middle of a game. As of now, if you start a game going to a 300 score, you have to finish that game before going on. Also, what is this with your partner sabotaging your books?! Aren’t we supposed to be a team? I allow my partner a book and the next play, they cut mine! Then we’re both penalized. Who plays like that! Needs work to be a TRUE spades game.
Makes no sense
by Pinkangel97 on 2018/02/06 00:53
The AI has no concept of how to play this game. One player can have the game top 3 spades yet only bid one. It's hard to bid when you have to figure in "the stupid play" factor. There is no challenge what's so ever to this game. At least you can chose to play as an individual so you aren't stuck with a clueless partner. I like the interface of this game better than others. But this one offers no challenge.
Yuck

Old Version Was Much Better....
by GoGo Dave on 2018/03/14 05:05
Are there any plans on porting the old version of Magmic’s Spades game to iOS11? I loved playing it everyday. This version is almost unplayable. What happened? I will gladly pay a fair price for a game that plays like the old version....
Latest update is unrecognizable
by DuckWalk512 on 2018/09/22 15:36
Magmic's Spades was my go-to game. Solid AI; lots of options mixing up opponents and level of play. This version is not an update but a complete replacement, and a move in the wrong direction. They broke something that needed zero fixing beyond a small tweak or two. In short, the UI and AI are unplayable for anyone who knows how to play. Removed from my phone and looking for a replacement. Can only hope they go back to what worked.
Who’s my partner
by FreeEBiird on 2017/12/19 02:20
The game play is simple but the program needs work. My partner is constantly trumping my high cards and causing us to be set. If I have won the trick it should not auto throw high cards. If playing teams the teammate should act like it is on the team. I go nil and the partner leads with a 2???
Not Worth It (and it’s free)
by Sadbad on 2018/11/17 21:13
The Spades game i used to play was really good, but it is no longer supported. This was recommended by the manufacturer of that previous game. This is the worst!!! The AI strategy is to play “give-away,” and I couldn’t win a game at all. I switched from the partners version to single player and now I can’t lose because I know the other AI players play to lose. It’s boring, and I am losing my skill to play properly. Looking for a new game...
A must have game!!
by Metalmouse08 on 2017/10/13 15:24
I’m happy to see there’s another free card game out there other than poker or bridge. Sometimes I just want something quick and easy to play between classes.
Favorite spades game to use
by Nicolas435 on 2017/10/13 15:48
This game has smooth gameplay and nice graphics that aren’t like the other out of date looking spade games. It’s a fun game for anybody who likes playing cards online.
iOS 11 update
by Quuueball on 2017/09/20 13:42
The paid version is telling me it’s not compatible with the new iOS 11. I see the lite version has updated, what about those that paid?
Really?
by WahooSnevets on 2018/05/06 12:46
Game play really is bad. Like playing with kids who don't know how to play the game. AI gameplay is just to unrealistic. Feels like you don't have a teammate and it's just you playing against 3 players to make you teams bids. Teammate bids 8 and starts giving away books and only makes 1 book? Who does that. Or bids 0 and starts off with ace or has the highest spade Ace in his hand. These are just a couple of examples of bad AI play.

Better than others
by Kbrown123 on 2017/11/09 12:49
I️ like to play fast without all of the graphics and slow dealing. This is better than others I️ have tried. I️ wish I️ could see the score when I️ am bidding.
Simple!
by Musical Cordie on 2017/10/14 03:31
This card game is really fun. The graphics are cute and really easy to work with and around. The fact it's free makes me happy too. This may replace my favorite solitaire app!
Please update
by Atl Gma on 2018/04/02 20:57
I played this game daily when on previous IOS v11. The logic now on how the computer players play the game makes no sense. Opponents have aces but won’t (or don’t) play them, have trump but does not cut when appropriate often cutting out their own partner when it’s not necessary. Wish someone would take a look at this and give it good old upgrade!! Thanks
Stupid AI
by Revtrin on 2018/01/30 15:04
I enjoy almost everything about this game except for the idiotic AI. It’s fast. It’s free. But it’s stress inducing. Not what you look for in a game. The worst gameplay is when your partner bids Nil or Blind Nil and leads with an Ace. The reverse is equally horrible. Every time I bid Nil my partner leads with low cards. It’d be nice to have some cover instead of having my partner trying to undermine me. I mean really. This is basic strategy. Fix it.
Very disappointed
by cm2echo on 2017/12/28 23:49
I've been playing Spades King for several years and loved it! I haven't updated to iOS 11 yet so I can still play it. Simple Spades stinks. I have it set for most difficult play and it's like the AI opponents are playing to lose, really, 500 to -1200?! Why can't Spades King be updated to work with iOS 11? I will have to find a diffent app when I update my iOS
Fun but partners terrible
by Ncsugirl2001 on 2018/01/28 20:02
I like that this game gives different options for the versions of spades. However, the computer partners are horrible even on the difficult level.
Disappointed!!
by StampingCatNut on 2017/12/30 19:22
My all time favorite Spades game, made by the same company, no longer works on my newest iOS. I decided to try this one because it’s made by the same developer. It is NOTHING like the other game! Even on the ‘hardest’ level I feel like I am playing 6 year olds! I want to scream at the DUMB moves the (goofy looking) players make, especially my partner!!!! UGH!!!!! I WANT MY OLD SPADES GAME BACK!!!!
Hate it
by annaplao on 2017/09/27 18:45
Would give a zero if i could. The game was great the way it was. Now it’s like a cartoon for kids with a totally different interface that is so frustrating to those who had been enjoying the app for YEARS. A good app was lost by adding stupid comic faces and cards that zoom in and out with every move. Incredibly disappointing.
Look elsewhere for spades
by brooksflow on 2017/12/05 02:39
Look elsewhere for spades games. Updates keep making game worse. Last update broke the game anyway. Will delete. Review update: recent update fixed launch, but waiting 30 seconds between hands makes gameplay unbearable. Will finally delete without regrets.
Sad
by BigdaddyLawdog on 2017/09/28 13:32
I am considering deleting the app. It used to be enjoyable now it isn't. Not just the ridiculous amount of ads but the game itself is just different in a bad way. If I wanted that kind of experience I would have downloaded it. I liked the old version and will look for something similar.
Terrible update
by spadesplayer1990 on 2017/10/20 01:12
I agree with everyone else. I enjoyed the old version and now I can't choose characters and I have to double tap cards. The whole look is like a cheap version of the old game. I will start looking for a new spades because I don't even like playing this version.

Love a good game of spades
by Marth Sasquatch 211 on 2017/10/11 20:47
This spades game really grew on me. I love the UI compared to other online spades games, and the fact that it's just a lot of fun.
Fun!
by Spiga357 on 2019/05/10 07:33
Learned how to play bid wiz thanks to this only negative so far is pop up for rating doesn’t work. Have to enter so store to leave review.
Spades
by rscotty33 on 2019/01/08 17:32
A little different from the way I play the game but I’m learning. One thing, it has to many commercials.
Nice game
by Ztolle on 2017/10/12 00:01
If you're a card shark or just a casual player, this ranks right up there with other great online spades, poker, and bridge card games. It's a fun free spades game
What happened to Spades King?!
by March 1 2016 Reviewer on 2017/09/26 16:23
I used to have Spades King, which was a decent game despite too many ads. Today it updated and was replaced with Simple Spades, which is just awful. Dumbest AI I've ever seen and minus a lot of the nice features of Spades King like the score graph and hand histories. Terrible, terrible game now!
Poor new version
by Colliers5 on 2017/10/28 18:56
This new version is juvenile and slow. The graphics are poor and it takes forever to play a round. The scoring isn't even the same. Used to play all the time now I'm looking for a different ap.
What happened?
by tayb1994 on 2017/10/07 03:06
The gameplay is horrible. It’s like the computers don’t even know how to play spades. I can no longer look at my previous hand, like before the update. I like the updated display. Just keep the original features.
Boo!
by chasemypaige on 2017/06/09 13:22
Crashes every time you have to watch a video for a coin and the game is lost. There is no way to opt out of watching the video so you can only play one hand at a time because the video comes up after each hand.
Bags way too easy to get
by Chuba216 on 2018/06/14 03:10
The bags are calculated per player and not per team, so you can get set and still develop bags in a round. This doesn’t seem fair and is not natural as nobody plays like that in real life. And the opponents are so easy. It’s like they are not even trying to play.
Bring back Spades King
by Cincy44er on 2018/04/20 01:30
This new version is horrible. Why did you go and mess things up? I’ve been trying to find another decent spades app since this one is nowhere near as good as the earlier version. Was this meant to be for small children? Horrible
Needs improvement
by B J Fan on 2017/11/21 15:07
Spade king was much better. Help section is not helpful, I would love to be able to change the settings for the way I play spades.
Ads Free Version Gone
by Dewshawt on 2017/09/22 00:51
I’ve had the ads free version for years but since the iOS 11 release its been incompatible. It appears that the lite version was updated but I don’t want to deal with all the adds, especially since I’ve paid to not do so.
Bring back the old spades
by Country atom on 2017/10/30 23:24
Don’t like double tapping to play a card. The opponents don’t play intelligently. The score sheet is hard to figure out compared to the old format. I played the old spades almost obsessively and I have yet to finish a game with this new one.
Went from OK to bad with last update
by mzives on 2018/01/11 00:16
There were always some quirks in the game logic but it was tolerable. Since last update, logic is out the window, making game impossible to play. Obviously, programmers have never actually played the game.

Mostly love it
by Hegemon16 on 2019/07/22 14:50
Love the variety of card games! Two issues I ran into: first, the game stops working when asked to leave a review. I have to delete and reinstall for it to work. Second, it starts slowing down significantly after a while. Same fix of having to delete and reinstall. Hope this gets solved soon!
Spades King Lite
by CNessa56 on 2019/05/28 22:12
I enjoy the game but after playing for awhile, it will show a ratings page that cannot be accessed or deleted. You then have to reinstall to play the game. VERY-FRUSTRATING.
Fun!
by Spiga357 on 2019/05/10 07:33
Learned how to play bid wiz thanks to this only negative so far is pop up for rating doesn’t work. Have to enter so store to leave review.
Bad deal
by Mgtlb on 2019/04/11 04:55
Have not been able to get the app to open since the update. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it. But nothing happens.
Cards
by LadyMyLexus on 2019/04/04 21:06
This game is fun, I love bid whist I’m a card player. Why does it keep asking you to rate the app (game) then it’s stuck on when you try to rate. It won’t let you do anything. I have to turn my phone off and back on to play the game. I’m thinking I can play, once it’s back on. You are asked to rate the app and it’s stuck again. I give up. Please fix this problem Right now it let me rate but not back to the game SMH
Game freezing up on rate game page
by mz rob on 2019/02/15 22:29
I often choose not to review games, but this game has been freezing up on the rate game page. I have been unable to leave that page, unless I uninstall the game, then reinstall it. I left a message for the game developer, but have not heard anything in past 2 days.
Spades
by rscotty33 on 2019/01/08 17:32
A little different from the way I play the game but I’m learning. One thing, it has to many commercials.
Deleted game!
by MikB611 on 2018/12/28 16:38
Too many long ads! Game is not good enough to purchase..
Not Worth It (and it’s free)
by Sadbad on 2018/11/17 21:13
The Spades game i used to play was really good, but it is no longer supported. This was recommended by the manufacturer of that previous game. This is the worst!!! The AI strategy is to play “give-away,” and I couldn’t win a game at all. I switched from the partners version to single player and now I can’t lose because I know the other AI players play to lose. It’s boring, and I am losing my skill to play properly. Looking for a new game...
30 second ads between hands???
by Sangresolo on 2018/11/01 04:17
Spades is supposed to be a decently paced game. Having an ad in between every hand, especially when those ads are as long as 30 seconds, takes the fun out of the game. Also, your scoring system is off. There was a hand where I bid 5 and my partner bid 5. I got 4 and my partner got 6. We made our total of ten, but we also got a bag in the hand. That isn’t right. One last thing... the AI is terrible. If I bid nil, the AI will lead low cards after they took a trick of the same suit wasting a high card. For example, 2C is lead, I play 6C, then 5C is played, and my partner plays the AC. Partner then leads 3C. What the ???
Latest update is unrecognizable
by DuckWalk512 on 2018/09/22 15:36
Magmic's Spades was my go-to game. Solid AI; lots of options mixing up opponents and level of play. This version is not an update but a complete replacement, and a move in the wrong direction. They broke something that needed zero fixing beyond a small tweak or two. In short, the UI and AI are unplayable for anyone who knows how to play. Removed from my phone and looking for a replacement. Can only hope they go back to what worked.
Unhappy with my purchase
by ThePowerwriter on 2018/07/15 00:49
after I bought this app I discovered that it has a lot of very serious bugs. For one thing, it gives you 10 bags on solo games. It should be only five bags. Also, you can tell that the robots are not playing the way real players would play. they do not throw out the cards that people do it real games. So you are not getting accurate practice. Hopefully the developer Will correct these issues and in the meantime I suggest you do not purchase this app.
Bags way too easy to get
by Chuba216 on 2018/06/14 03:10
The bags are calculated per player and not per team, so you can get set and still develop bags in a round. This doesn’t seem fair and is not natural as nobody plays like that in real life. And the opponents are so easy. It’s like they are not even trying to play.
Terrible partner
by meremerr on 2018/05/15 20:29
Gameplay is simple and appealing. My partner though, is terrible. Who leads a 2 when their partner is blind nil? Or breaks the spade when they themselves are nil? I don’t understand.
AI has IQ of 45!
by CPTAMP on 2018/05/10 15:38
While this program could be good the AI is just as stupid as it can get! Come on guys program this so it’s challenging and fun.
Really?
by WahooSnevets on 2018/05/06 12:46
Game play really is bad. Like playing with kids who don't know how to play the game. AI gameplay is just to unrealistic. Feels like you don't have a teammate and it's just you playing against 3 players to make you teams bids. Teammate bids 8 and starts giving away books and only makes 1 book? Who does that. Or bids 0 and starts off with ace or has the highest spade Ace in his hand. These are just a couple of examples of bad AI play.
Bring back Spades King
by Cincy44er on 2018/04/20 01:30
This new version is horrible. Why did you go and mess things up? I’ve been trying to find another decent spades app since this one is nowhere near as good as the earlier version. Was this meant to be for small children? Horrible
Please update
by Atl Gma on 2018/04/02 20:57
I played this game daily when on previous IOS v11. The logic now on how the computer players play the game makes no sense. Opponents have aces but won’t (or don’t) play them, have trump but does not cut when appropriate often cutting out their own partner when it’s not necessary. Wish someone would take a look at this and give it good old upgrade!! Thanks
The ads are horrible
by Nonna3132 on 2018/03/17 04:36
Enough said in the title, I don’t mind ads but why can’t I just click the X and get back to my game. I have to close out the game to clear an ad. Fix that!!
Old Version Was Much Better....
by GoGo Dave on 2018/03/14 05:05
Are there any plans on porting the old version of Magmic’s Spades game to iOS11? I loved playing it everyday. This version is almost unplayable. What happened? I will gladly pay a fair price for a game that plays like the old version....
More adds than game time
by Imonfire999 on 2018/02/20 22:49
So many adds I just can’t enjoy this game anymore 😞
Love this app
by dc1958 on 2018/02/19 02:28
Fun
Makes no sense
by Pinkangel97 on 2018/02/06 00:53
The AI has no concept of how to play this game. One player can have the game top 3 spades yet only bid one. It's hard to bid when you have to figure in "the stupid play" factor. There is no challenge what's so ever to this game. At least you can chose to play as an individual so you aren't stuck with a clueless partner. I like the interface of this game better than others. But this one offers no challenge.
Stupid AI
by Revtrin on 2018/01/30 15:04
I enjoy almost everything about this game except for the idiotic AI. It’s fast. It’s free. But it’s stress inducing. Not what you look for in a game. The worst gameplay is when your partner bids Nil or Blind Nil and leads with an Ace. The reverse is equally horrible. Every time I bid Nil my partner leads with low cards. It’d be nice to have some cover instead of having my partner trying to undermine me. I mean really. This is basic strategy. Fix it.
Fun but partners terrible
by Ncsugirl2001 on 2018/01/28 20:02
I like that this game gives different options for the versions of spades. However, the computer partners are horrible even on the difficult level.
Simple Spades has missed the mark with this update
by Whowants2 on 2018/01/15 23:50
I normally don’t write reviews for apps because I usually feel like people can make up their own minds without reading what I have to say, but on this app I felt like I needed to break my own rule. I have been a long time user of the older version of this spades game. I actually held off upgrading my IOS version when I got a message that this older version would not run on v11 of IOS. But alas a new cell phone forced me to the new version of both. I must say this version of the game misses the mark badly. They took away the ability to “pick” your level of opponent hence you lose the ability of choosing the AI personality to play against. This new version I have found on both hard and hardest level they AI spends so much time trying to give you bags it rarely makes it own bid. I have played at least a dozen games so far and I have yet to see my opponent with a positive score. Then speaking of scoring. They have changed the scoring or bags taking away the idea of “team” and making even your partner play low to not get bags even if you bid nil. Of which the old version game you a 100 points for and this one gives you 50 with no way to set it how you want. Overall I used to play this game for stress relief now I find myself more stressed after trying to play it. My advice, pass this version up. I feel robbed having paid again for this update just to have the ads removed.
Too many ads and not as good as old app
by Bladehunter on 2018/01/13 21:34
The older version was great. This one has more ads than game. Maybe it's time to look at your competitors games. Thanks for the memories. Decided to try your app one more time as I truly loved the previous version. One thing that I really dislike about your new version is having to touch a card twice. The old app also was more pleasing to the eye. With a few changes to make it a seamless change from the old app and you may have a winner.
Went from OK to bad with last update
by mzives on 2018/01/11 00:16
There were always some quirks in the game logic but it was tolerable. Since last update, logic is out the window, making game impossible to play. Obviously, programmers have never actually played the game.
Disappointed!!
by StampingCatNut on 2017/12/30 19:22
My all time favorite Spades game, made by the same company, no longer works on my newest iOS. I decided to try this one because it’s made by the same developer. It is NOTHING like the other game! Even on the ‘hardest’ level I feel like I am playing 6 year olds! I want to scream at the DUMB moves the (goofy looking) players make, especially my partner!!!! UGH!!!!! I WANT MY OLD SPADES GAME BACK!!!!
Very disappointed
by cm2echo on 2017/12/28 23:49
I've been playing Spades King for several years and loved it! I haven't updated to iOS 11 yet so I can still play it. Simple Spades stinks. I have it set for most difficult play and it's like the AI opponents are playing to lose, really, 500 to -1200?! Why can't Spades King be updated to work with iOS 11? I will have to find a diffent app when I update my iOS
What happened?
by sdiddy_mc on 2017/12/28 12:54
I used to play this game all the time. It was quick and the AI was pretty good. You could fool it from time to time but all in all it felt similar to how friends play. Now the AI is incredibly frustrating. It’s gone the complete opposite and seems like they are willing to take sets just to load bags on you. And the new point system is TERRIBLE. I’ve been playing Spades for 20 years and have played all kinds of crazy house rules... never once have I played with anyone that counted bags by individual team member. If my team bids seven and takes seven we shouldn’t be penalized just because I took one less and my partner took one more than our bids. That’s a big part of the game...working together to make your bid. All that system does is add more bags in to the game and drags them out. And for some reason nil bids are only worth 50 now? What’s the point? Might as well just bid the one in your hand than try and dump it because the risk-reward just isn’t there. Bummer to lose a game I’ve been enjoying playing for years
Game is fun, but way too many ads.
by Ilovedogs22 on 2017/12/25 20:36
Long ads between each turn gets old real fast, if you can deal with that it's a decent card game.
Worst game ever
by Kennz4q on 2017/12/23 20:35
I’ve been told a computer is only as smart as it’s programmer, well you better bypass this one!!!
Fun but flawed
by happibunni on 2017/12/22 06:49
It would be great if the game gave you an option to change levels in the middle of a game. As of now, if you start a game going to a 300 score, you have to finish that game before going on. Also, what is this with your partner sabotaging your books?! Aren’t we supposed to be a team? I allow my partner a book and the next play, they cut mine! Then we’re both penalized. Who plays like that! Needs work to be a TRUE spades game.
ADS
by Ellsgtmortar on 2017/12/19 16:45
TO MANY ADS. ADS AFTER EACH HAND PLAYED. DELETED
Who’s my partner
by FreeEBiird on 2017/12/19 02:20
The game play is simple but the program needs work. My partner is constantly trumping my high cards and causing us to be set. If I have won the trick it should not auto throw high cards. If playing teams the teammate should act like it is on the team. I go nil and the partner leads with a 2???
Disappointed
by Marie’s Macbook on 2017/12/15 03:07
I, too, like the others have been playing this game for a while. I was forced to upgrade and was truly disappointed with the new interface, game play and options menu. You used to be able to change everything off the main menu, now you have to go to a separate menu to change game play. I concur with the other gamers that note the players have become stupid. Who bids zero with the ace of spades in their hands. Also, I witnessed the opponents make counter productive moves against each other. I have gotten really frustrated with the game where I am going to uninstall it and try another spades game.
Perfect!
by Arthur_Dent on 2017/12/14 19:23
I enjoyed the game. Like the title suggests it's a simple game and that’s how I like it. You just bid and play spades.
Spades
by Ratherhike on 2017/12/13 04:35
Very enjoyable!
I love it!
by 1Nephi11 on 2017/12/13 01:48
Great game
Hate the new version!!!
by PADWMN on 2017/12/06 14:59
Loved the old game. Would play for hours. Now it is childish and ridiculous- not to mention all the ads. Deleting the app.
Look elsewhere for spades
by brooksflow on 2017/12/05 02:39
Look elsewhere for spades games. Updates keep making game worse. Last update broke the game anyway. Will delete. Review update: recent update fixed launch, but waiting 30 seconds between hands makes gameplay unbearable. Will finally delete without regrets.
What the heck
by Brk61 on 2017/12/05 00:17
After the last update the app downloads then goes right back to my home screen! Before that I enjoyed it
Spades lite
by Rayfinn on 2017/12/03 23:26
Latest iOS and now it is broken😥
Zero Stars
by coolgirlAva on 2017/12/03 08:31
After upgrade, can’t open the program. How do I get a refund?
Dec 2nd update broke the app
by CharlesMcL on 2017/12/03 04:03
App is unreliable after update.
Garbage
by run away from this game on 2017/12/02 05:46
Your game is garbage now. Used to be great. Just installed new update and game won’t even play - just keeps hanging and being unresponsive. Looks cheap, plays cheap. You had a great game and then you killed it. Everyone on your team should be fired.
Bad update just terrible game was good before
by Tunaforsale on 2017/11/26 08:16
Will never play this game again just terrible plz go back to what it was before last update
Needs improvement
by B J Fan on 2017/11/21 15:07
Spade king was much better. Help section is not helpful, I would love to be able to change the settings for the way I play spades.
Completely changed
by Lisa Prusha on 2017/11/21 14:56
Deleting this app now. The computer partners stink and there is an ad after every deal. I realize it’s a feee app and expect some ads but that’s overkill. Not worth your time.
Disappointed
by Fredbillionaire on 2017/11/11 01:02
Please bring back Spades King. It was by far the best spades game in the App Store. Why wasn’t the game upgraded instead of replaced? Biggest mistake the developers ever made.
Better than others
by Kbrown123 on 2017/11/09 12:49
I️ like to play fast without all of the graphics and slow dealing. This is better than others I️ have tried. I️ wish I️ could see the score when I️ am bidding.
Bring back the old spades
by Country atom on 2017/10/30 23:24
Don’t like double tapping to play a card. The opponents don’t play intelligently. The score sheet is hard to figure out compared to the old format. I played the old spades almost obsessively and I have yet to finish a game with this new one.
Poor new version
by Colliers5 on 2017/10/28 18:56
This new version is juvenile and slow. The graphics are poor and it takes forever to play a round. The scoring isn't even the same. Used to play all the time now I'm looking for a different ap.
Terrible update
by spadesplayer1990 on 2017/10/20 01:12
I agree with everyone else. I enjoyed the old version and now I can't choose characters and I have to double tap cards. The whole look is like a cheap version of the old game. I will start looking for a new spades because I don't even like playing this version.
Lame
by JG Seamus on 2017/10/17 19:22
Bring back the old one. Your partner under cuts you when you go nil instead of covering you. Not a good at all.
Won’t open
by Susie Poland on 2017/10/15 00:36
Downloaded but keep getting prompt to connect but doesn’t work. Unfortunate because it was a good game
Simple!
by Musical Cordie on 2017/10/14 03:31
This card game is really fun. The graphics are cute and really easy to work with and around. The fact it's free makes me happy too. This may replace my favorite solitaire app!
Back up but not quite a 5 yet!
by JustMy2Senses on 2017/10/14 02:00
Another new review 10/13/2017 Yay! You've fixed a lot of the issues (and the most serious issues) that I complained about in my last review. Thank you! There are still a few things that detract from my enjoyment, but the game is once again playable. Remaining issues: 1) Scoring is mostly fixed, but you are only giving 50 points for winning nil bid. It should be 100 for nil and 200 for blind nil. 2) If you've done anything about #2 below, I can't figure out how to make it work. 3) Fixed! The ai players still make some dumb moves, but it's not enough to ruin the game. 4) still no change. I'd like to see an OK button at the bid to make sure I've not fat-fingered the wrong bid. 5) fixed. Thank you. I can now easily find the spades again. 6) I'll stop whining about the ai player icons. Not a biggie. 7) I was too frustrated to notice this before, but it would be nice if after a hand the app would wait for me to look at the score and review the hand before loading the ad. Maybe when the user clicks on the OK button to start the next deal? Some things I like about the game: - I have bad eyes (and play on a small screen) so the larger numbers are great. - the game no longer crashes if I get called away in the middle of a hand and have to close the app. - I notice that a lot of the ads now have mute buttons. Yay! I play a lot at night, but need to hear if I get an actual phone call, so I like to be able to mute the ads. I am really impressed that you not only fixed so many of the things I mentioned in my last review, but also took the time to respond to me. Thank you! It shows that you value your users. Previous review 9/25/2017 Four years ago you took this game from a sucky game to a great one, now you've made it sucky again! Here are the things you've ruined: 1) Scoring is screwed up. For standard spades it should be 10 bags for the penalty, not 5; you can no longer play to 500 points; you can't easily see bid/made per player. Although unless you fix what you broke, I don't think I'd want to play long enough to get to 500. :( 2) you can't see/check the score summary during hand play. There is an icon in the corner of the screen that looks a little like a scoreboard, but it doesn't work. You can't even go back over the score for the past hands any more. 3) The computer players make stupid plays, like trumping partner's ace or discarding when player should Trump to make the bid. I don't think I've ever seen so many tricks taken by an 8 or below. 4) The game makes you confirm every play, which is ok, I guess, but not the bid. Be consistent. 5) Hand layout puts spades in the middle of the hand. They should be on either end (i.e. either SHDC or CDHS). 6) The graphics aren't even as good as they used to be. ------------- (4 years ago--must have been 2013) So this is the new review. I saw there was an update--didn't say what the fix was, but I decided to try it again. Fixed! The game is now allowing you to play to game (500 points) rather than stopping at 3 hands. In the meantime, I downloaded ALL the other free Spades games, and this one is far and away the best. Way to go! --------------------------------------------- (Old review) Up until the last upgrade, I would have rated this game a 5. Great graphics, good play, ability to review last play. But with the last upgrade, game is limited to 3 hands, not 500 points. Yuck! If this doesn't get reversed soon, I'm deleting it from my phone.
Favorite spades game to use
by Nicolas435 on 2017/10/13 15:48
This game has smooth gameplay and nice graphics that aren’t like the other out of date looking spade games. It’s a fun game for anybody who likes playing cards online.
A must have game!!
by Metalmouse08 on 2017/10/13 15:24
I’m happy to see there’s another free card game out there other than poker or bridge. Sometimes I just want something quick and easy to play between classes.
Love this game!!
by MarkGlazer on 2017/10/12 02:59
A challenging and fun game if you like old school spades, or even solitaire/bridge/spades/ euchre card games.
Nice game
by Ztolle on 2017/10/12 00:01
If you're a card shark or just a casual player, this ranks right up there with other great online spades, poker, and bridge card games. It's a fun free spades game
Ugly
by Eyal Minsky-Fenick on 2017/10/11 23:19
With new version, hands are no longer sorted with spades at left. The new UI is ugly as sin; the old one was less cluttered. The statistics are gone. Do not update. Developers have responded. I remain unsatisfied. They fixed the sorting order a little, but there is no option to sort high on left or high on right. Old version was high on left. Please, developers, just let us play the old version!
The dang ads!!
by Ajonesmem on 2017/10/11 22:48
How can one get rid of the ads and just play the game??!! I loved the old version, the new version just isn’t it.
Love a good game of spades
by Marth Sasquatch 211 on 2017/10/11 20:47
This spades game really grew on me. I love the UI compared to other online spades games, and the fact that it's just a lot of fun.
Great spades game!
by FlyingBeaver5 on 2017/10/11 20:47
I'm a HUGE fan of spades and this is the app a card shark like me has been looking for! Playing is easy and fun.
What happened?
by tayb1994 on 2017/10/07 03:06
The gameplay is horrible. It’s like the computers don’t even know how to play spades. I can no longer look at my previous hand, like before the update. I like the updated display. Just keep the original features.
Horrible Update
by Tallgirl42 on 2017/10/03 22:01
I am now deleting this app. The update made the game look cheesy and cheap. It is no longer fun to play and takes too long to complete one hand! Awful
Needs a lot work.
by LasVegasSeamus on 2017/10/02 19:25
The old game was so much better. When you go and mil your partner undercuts you and forces you to take a book like he's your opponent. The scoring to win the game is way too low.
What the heck???
by Keverhart on 2017/10/02 02:14
Worst update ever. They took one of the better game apps and dumbed it down to the point of inanity. You had NO competition before this update, now it is just another crappy app.
Why did they completely redo the game?
by Josiedoesit on 2017/09/30 16:39
This new version, and technically new game is just terrible. I played simple Spades because it was just SIMPLE. Now, they added a whole new look and feel, but it’s much worse. Here’s why: The game is absolutely slower, the cards being thrown out, selecting bids, and going to the next hand. The game is over animated: why? I can’t even stand to look at the characters because they look like cartoons. I can’t select who I want to play against: In the old game, I could select the players in the game. Thats now gone. They were also based on difficulty. Honestly, I had better games versus a medium and hard difficulty than two hard opponents. They right combination of conservative and aggressive. I played this game all the time. It was my time away from bs life for a few minutes. Now, that is gone because to play this new game, I’ve got to spend an hour waiting for how slow it is, and get upset about how stupid this update was. At least make the old version available for download. Thanks.
Sad
by BigdaddyLawdog on 2017/09/28 13:32
I am considering deleting the app. It used to be enjoyable now it isn't. Not just the ridiculous amount of ads but the game itself is just different in a bad way. If I wanted that kind of experience I would have downloaded it. I liked the old version and will look for something similar.
Hate it
by annaplao on 2017/09/27 18:45
Would give a zero if i could. The game was great the way it was. Now it’s like a cartoon for kids with a totally different interface that is so frustrating to those who had been enjoying the app for YEARS. A good app was lost by adding stupid comic faces and cards that zoom in and out with every move. Incredibly disappointing.
Use to love playing
by Wolfcubs88 on 2017/09/27 18:35
Yuck hate the last update! No fun anymore deleting game
Words Cannot Express How Upset Am
by NY Cowboy Bob on 2017/09/26 22:00
Really NO STARS. First off, there was no update to the paid version, so I can no longer open it. Then you replace a classy version with nice graphics to this juvenile graphic version. Truly will never get another app from magmic again. I enjoyed the old version for many years. It was a part of my daily experience. This is absolutely disappointing and sad.
What happened to Spades King?!
by March 1 2016 Reviewer on 2017/09/26 16:23
I used to have Spades King, which was a decent game despite too many ads. Today it updated and was replaced with Simple Spades, which is just awful. Dumbest AI I've ever seen and minus a lot of the nice features of Spades King like the score graph and hand histories. Terrible, terrible game now!
Spades
by Archy39 on 2017/09/26 16:12
I like the older game better.
Horrible players, even worse update!!!!
by Baldman5150515077 on 2017/09/26 02:05
This new update is horrible. They changed the entire game to new rules, new scoring, new AI players that play worse than the old ones. Whoever was in charge of this update has absolutely NO idea of how to play spades and I honestly think they only did this to piss us off. Been playing for a long time and have simply expected my partner to play like a fool. I enjoy the game to an extent, but the cards they play really blow my mind. I like playing the "wiz" rules the most, you bid either how many spades you have, or nil. At least one time in every game, my partner, or an opponent will bid nil when they have 6 spades in their hand. It makes absolutely no sense and is an obvious flaw in the game. Other times, I lead trump because we need the rest of the tricks to get our bid. My partner will have high trump, but plays low and allows opps to take the trick, getting us set. They throw off regularly instead of taking tricks, getting us set even more. It gets very frustrating. So if you are not ready to pull your hair out due to poor playing partners, don't download this app. The makers of this program need to sit down with real players, experienced players, and take a lot of notes.
ADS KILL THE GAME
by Here N GA on 2017/09/23 15:06
The game itself is super. BUT there are entirely too many pop up ads to enjoy playing. Why not add an option to pay to opt-out of the ads?
Ads Free Version Gone
by Dewshawt on 2017/09/22 00:51
I’ve had the ads free version for years but since the iOS 11 release its been incompatible. It appears that the lite version was updated but I don’t want to deal with all the adds, especially since I’ve paid to not do so.
iOS 11 update
by Quuueball on 2017/09/20 13:42
The paid version is telling me it’s not compatible with the new iOS 11. I see the lite version has updated, what about those that paid?
Update messed up the game!
by LindyMth on 2017/08/03 23:43
What the heck did you do??? I have played this for years and loved it! I accidentally updated it today and now the font is so small I can barely get my little finger to hit the right card. Plus the commercials are ridiculous. I'm going to delete the game
Not motivated to buy the add free app
by Bjg87 on 2017/07/10 14:59
The lite version has the worst glitches. I would go into detail but all of the other reviews seem to cover it. If the free edition has this many problems, I can't see purchasing the pay app
Boo!
by chasemypaige on 2017/06/09 13:22
Crashes every time you have to watch a video for a coin and the game is lost. There is no way to opt out of watching the video so you can only play one hand at a time because the video comes up after each hand.
Yuck
by Mcfish1 on 2017/06/04 03:10
Something is seriously wrong with this game. I had the spades king game and they quit fixing it and now this version pops up with stupid loud videos in the middle of my spades game trying to make me buy things I don't want. Fix the other version and get rid of this crud I paid for an ad free version not this garbage I would not give it even one star but the stupid thing wouldn't let me post my comment without giving it a star. Total money grubbing yuck...they really ruined a great game
App Needs to be fixed

Shrunken spades
by Ansalot on 2017/05/30 22:58
I don't like updating my games because when I do it screws up something one way or another. Well I updated my spades game, big mistake, all of the fonts and screens have shrunk to at least half the size they used to be. This used to be my favorite game. I even endured the commercials that I got from the last update I did. But this, the game is so small that you pick the wrong cards and make mistakes all the time. You can't go back and do a do over so you end up losing a lot of your games. Please fix this problem! But even if you do I'll be really leery of trusting the next update
Not happy
by malveyd on 2017/05/12 23:41
Since the update I can't finish a game. Screen goes blank and games closes and shuts down.
Seriously?!?
by The Almighty Mattski on 2017/04/29 23:15
I'm in the middle of a null bid; my partner leads a 2-spades and I end up taking the trick. THE VERY NEXT HAND they throw the King?!? What kind of imbecile programs this crap? And this sort of thing happens ALL THE TIME! Deleting this game before my blood pressure gives me a stroke...
Concern
by Hey Berta on 2017/04/26 11:03
The numbers & letters are smaller. Why?
Spades
by Like the app, but the glitches on 2017/04/24 13:16
4/24/17 I love Spades, but this new upgrade in the past couple of days on my iPhone, the screen and the layout is so small compared to previous installments. You need glasses just to read the wording. Disappointed, why did you shrink the screen.
Way too many ads!
by jcornelio123 on 2017/04/07 01:25
The previous versions were decent, and limited ads. Now, its ad after ad, 30 seconds in between hands! Very annoying. It is not worth playing it. I am uninstalling the app...
Waaaaay too many ads!
by Ladyparker09 on 2017/03/29 16:26
I downloaded this app for maybe 10 minutes before I realized that there are way too many ads. After each hand they make you watch a 15 second ad. No thanks. Uninstalling now
Less than zero
by muttdog on 2017/03/07 03:46
That's what I'd like to rate this game. Long annoying ads make unbearable to play. Deleted!
ADS MAKE GAME UNPLAYABLE
by revgsmitty on 2017/03/04 03:36
This update has made the game unplayable with ads after every hand that are longer than it takes to play a hand. In removing it from my iPad and iPhone.
Horrible
by DurtyRice on 2017/02/19 14:08
It takes longer to watch the adds than to actually play the game! I mean did I come to play the game or watch the adds???
30 seconds ads?!
by kimbull on 2017/02/13 00:39
Who actually has the patience to play this game. What a disappointment.
Ad's galore
by Repeat ad hater 2082017 on 2017/02/09 05:04
OMG what an ad nightmare. Literally the same ad at least twice in a row. Always a 30 second ad between hands and then 30 second ad to end the game and then another 30 second ad to start a new one. Deleting this game due to developer greed.
Game freezing up on rate game page
by mz rob on 2019/02/15 22:29
I often choose not to review games, but this game has been freezing up on the rate game page. I have been unable to leave that page, unless I uninstall the game, then reinstall it. I left a message for the game developer, but have not heard anything in past 2 days.
Simple Spades has missed the mark with this update
by Whowants2 on 2018/01/15 23:50
I normally don’t write reviews for apps because I usually feel like people can make up their own minds without reading what I have to say, but on this app I felt like I needed to break my own rule. I have been a long time user of the older version of this spades game. I actually held off upgrading my IOS version when I got a message that this older version would not run on v11 of IOS. But alas a new cell phone forced me to the new version of both. I must say this version of the game misses the mark badly. They took away the ability to “pick” your level of opponent hence you lose the ability of choosing the AI personality to play against. This new version I have found on both hard and hardest level they AI spends so much time trying to give you bags it rarely makes it own bid. I have played at least a dozen games so far and I have yet to see my opponent with a positive score. Then speaking of scoring. They have changed the scoring or bags taking away the idea of “team” and making even your partner play low to not get bags even if you bid nil. Of which the old version game you a 100 points for and this one gives you 50 with no way to set it how you want. Overall I used to play this game for stress relief now I find myself more stressed after trying to play it. My advice, pass this version up. I feel robbed having paid again for this update just to have the ads removed.
What happened?
by sdiddy_mc on 2017/12/28 12:54
I used to play this game all the time. It was quick and the AI was pretty good. You could fool it from time to time but all in all it felt similar to how friends play. Now the AI is incredibly frustrating. It’s gone the complete opposite and seems like they are willing to take sets just to load bags on you. And the new point system is TERRIBLE. I’ve been playing Spades for 20 years and have played all kinds of crazy house rules... never once have I played with anyone that counted bags by individual team member. If my team bids seven and takes seven we shouldn’t be penalized just because I took one less and my partner took one more than our bids. That’s a big part of the game...working together to make your bid. All that system does is add more bags in to the game and drags them out. And for some reason nil bids are only worth 50 now? What’s the point? Might as well just bid the one in your hand than try and dump it because the risk-reward just isn’t there. Bummer to lose a game I’ve been enjoying playing for years
Why did they completely redo the game?
by Josiedoesit on 2017/09/30 16:39
This new version, and technically new game is just terrible. I played simple Spades because it was just SIMPLE. Now, they added a whole new look and feel, but it’s much worse. Here’s why: The game is absolutely slower, the cards being thrown out, selecting bids, and going to the next hand. The game is over animated: why? I can’t even stand to look at the characters because they look like cartoons. I can’t select who I want to play against: In the old game, I could select the players in the game. Thats now gone. They were also based on difficulty. Honestly, I had better games versus a medium and hard difficulty than two hard opponents. They right combination of conservative and aggressive. I played this game all the time. It was my time away from bs life for a few minutes. Now, that is gone because to play this new game, I’ve got to spend an hour waiting for how slow it is, and get upset about how stupid this update was. At least make the old version available for download. Thanks.
Cards
by LadyMyLexus on 2019/04/04 21:06
This game is fun, I love bid whist I’m a card player. Why does it keep asking you to rate the app (game) then it’s stuck on when you try to rate. It won’t let you do anything. I have to turn my phone off and back on to play the game. I’m thinking I can play, once it’s back on. You are asked to rate the app and it’s stuck again. I give up. Please fix this problem Right now it let me rate but not back to the game SMH
Disappointed
by Marie’s Macbook on 2017/12/15 03:07
I, too, like the others have been playing this game for a while. I was forced to upgrade and was truly disappointed with the new interface, game play and options menu. You used to be able to change everything off the main menu, now you have to go to a separate menu to change game play. I concur with the other gamers that note the players have become stupid. Who bids zero with the ace of spades in their hands. Also, I witnessed the opponents make counter productive moves against each other. I have gotten really frustrated with the game where I am going to uninstall it and try another spades game.
30 second ads between hands???
by Sangresolo on 2018/11/01 04:17
Spades is supposed to be a decently paced game. Having an ad in between every hand, especially when those ads are as long as 30 seconds, takes the fun out of the game. Also, your scoring system is off. There was a hand where I bid 5 and my partner bid 5. I got 4 and my partner got 6. We made our total of ten, but we also got a bag in the hand. That isn’t right. One last thing... the AI is terrible. If I bid nil, the AI will lead low cards after they took a trick of the same suit wasting a high card. For example, 2C is lead, I play 6C, then 5C is played, and my partner plays the AC. Partner then leads 3C. What the ???

Unhappy with my purchase
by ThePowerwriter on 2018/07/15 00:49
after I bought this app I discovered that it has a lot of very serious bugs. For one thing, it gives you 10 bags on solo games. It should be only five bags. Also, you can tell that the robots are not playing the way real players would play. they do not throw out the cards that people do it real games. So you are not getting accurate practice. Hopefully the developer Will correct these issues and in the meantime I suggest you do not purchase this app.
Mostly love it
by Hegemon16 on 2019/07/22 14:50
Love the variety of card games! Two issues I ran into: first, the game stops working when asked to leave a review. I have to delete and reinstall for it to work. Second, it starts slowing down significantly after a while. Same fix of having to delete and reinstall. Hope this gets solved soon!
Too many ads and not as good as old app
by Bladehunter on 2018/01/13 21:34
The older version was great. This one has more ads than game. Maybe it's time to look at your competitors games. Thanks for the memories. Decided to try your app one more time as I truly loved the previous version. One thing that I really dislike about your new version is having to touch a card twice. The old app also was more pleasing to the eye. With a few changes to make it a seamless change from the old app and you may have a winner.
Fun but flawed
by happibunni on 2017/12/22 06:49
It would be great if the game gave you an option to change levels in the middle of a game. As of now, if you start a game going to a 300 score, you have to finish that game before going on. Also, what is this with your partner sabotaging your books?! Aren’t we supposed to be a team? I allow my partner a book and the next play, they cut mine! Then we’re both penalized. Who plays like that! Needs work to be a TRUE spades game.
Makes no sense
by Pinkangel97 on 2018/02/06 00:53
The AI has no concept of how to play this game. One player can have the game top 3 spades yet only bid one. It's hard to bid when you have to figure in "the stupid play" factor. There is no challenge what's so ever to this game. At least you can chose to play as an individual so you aren't stuck with a clueless partner. I like the interface of this game better than others. But this one offers no challenge.
Yuck

Old Version Was Much Better....
by GoGo Dave on 2018/03/14 05:05
Are there any plans on porting the old version of Magmic’s Spades game to iOS11? I loved playing it everyday. This version is almost unplayable. What happened? I will gladly pay a fair price for a game that plays like the old version....
Latest update is unrecognizable
by DuckWalk512 on 2018/09/22 15:36
Magmic's Spades was my go-to game. Solid AI; lots of options mixing up opponents and level of play. This version is not an update but a complete replacement, and a move in the wrong direction. They broke something that needed zero fixing beyond a small tweak or two. In short, the UI and AI are unplayable for anyone who knows how to play. Removed from my phone and looking for a replacement. Can only hope they go back to what worked.
Who’s my partner
by FreeEBiird on 2017/12/19 02:20
The game play is simple but the program needs work. My partner is constantly trumping my high cards and causing us to be set. If I have won the trick it should not auto throw high cards. If playing teams the teammate should act like it is on the team. I go nil and the partner leads with a 2???
Not Worth It (and it’s free)
by Sadbad on 2018/11/17 21:13
The Spades game i used to play was really good, but it is no longer supported. This was recommended by the manufacturer of that previous game. This is the worst!!! The AI strategy is to play “give-away,” and I couldn’t win a game at all. I switched from the partners version to single player and now I can’t lose because I know the other AI players play to lose. It’s boring, and I am losing my skill to play properly. Looking for a new game...
A must have game!!
by Metalmouse08 on 2017/10/13 15:24
I’m happy to see there’s another free card game out there other than poker or bridge. Sometimes I just want something quick and easy to play between classes.
Favorite spades game to use
by Nicolas435 on 2017/10/13 15:48
This game has smooth gameplay and nice graphics that aren’t like the other out of date looking spade games. It’s a fun game for anybody who likes playing cards online.
iOS 11 update
by Quuueball on 2017/09/20 13:42
The paid version is telling me it’s not compatible with the new iOS 11. I see the lite version has updated, what about those that paid?
Really?
by WahooSnevets on 2018/05/06 12:46
Game play really is bad. Like playing with kids who don't know how to play the game. AI gameplay is just to unrealistic. Feels like you don't have a teammate and it's just you playing against 3 players to make you teams bids. Teammate bids 8 and starts giving away books and only makes 1 book? Who does that. Or bids 0 and starts off with ace or has the highest spade Ace in his hand. These are just a couple of examples of bad AI play.

Better than others
by Kbrown123 on 2017/11/09 12:49
I️ like to play fast without all of the graphics and slow dealing. This is better than others I️ have tried. I️ wish I️ could see the score when I️ am bidding.
Simple!
by Musical Cordie on 2017/10/14 03:31
This card game is really fun. The graphics are cute and really easy to work with and around. The fact it's free makes me happy too. This may replace my favorite solitaire app!
Please update
by Atl Gma on 2018/04/02 20:57
I played this game daily when on previous IOS v11. The logic now on how the computer players play the game makes no sense. Opponents have aces but won’t (or don’t) play them, have trump but does not cut when appropriate often cutting out their own partner when it’s not necessary. Wish someone would take a look at this and give it good old upgrade!! Thanks
Stupid AI
by Revtrin on 2018/01/30 15:04
I enjoy almost everything about this game except for the idiotic AI. It’s fast. It’s free. But it’s stress inducing. Not what you look for in a game. The worst gameplay is when your partner bids Nil or Blind Nil and leads with an Ace. The reverse is equally horrible. Every time I bid Nil my partner leads with low cards. It’d be nice to have some cover instead of having my partner trying to undermine me. I mean really. This is basic strategy. Fix it.
Very disappointed
by cm2echo on 2017/12/28 23:49
I've been playing Spades King for several years and loved it! I haven't updated to iOS 11 yet so I can still play it. Simple Spades stinks. I have it set for most difficult play and it's like the AI opponents are playing to lose, really, 500 to -1200?! Why can't Spades King be updated to work with iOS 11? I will have to find a diffent app when I update my iOS
Fun but partners terrible
by Ncsugirl2001 on 2018/01/28 20:02
I like that this game gives different options for the versions of spades. However, the computer partners are horrible even on the difficult level.
Disappointed!!
by StampingCatNut on 2017/12/30 19:22
My all time favorite Spades game, made by the same company, no longer works on my newest iOS. I decided to try this one because it’s made by the same developer. It is NOTHING like the other game! Even on the ‘hardest’ level I feel like I am playing 6 year olds! I want to scream at the DUMB moves the (goofy looking) players make, especially my partner!!!! UGH!!!!! I WANT MY OLD SPADES GAME BACK!!!!
Hate it
by annaplao on 2017/09/27 18:45
Would give a zero if i could. The game was great the way it was. Now it’s like a cartoon for kids with a totally different interface that is so frustrating to those who had been enjoying the app for YEARS. A good app was lost by adding stupid comic faces and cards that zoom in and out with every move. Incredibly disappointing.
Look elsewhere for spades
by brooksflow on 2017/12/05 02:39
Look elsewhere for spades games. Updates keep making game worse. Last update broke the game anyway. Will delete. Review update: recent update fixed launch, but waiting 30 seconds between hands makes gameplay unbearable. Will finally delete without regrets.
Sad
by BigdaddyLawdog on 2017/09/28 13:32
I am considering deleting the app. It used to be enjoyable now it isn't. Not just the ridiculous amount of ads but the game itself is just different in a bad way. If I wanted that kind of experience I would have downloaded it. I liked the old version and will look for something similar.
Terrible update
by spadesplayer1990 on 2017/10/20 01:12
I agree with everyone else. I enjoyed the old version and now I can't choose characters and I have to double tap cards. The whole look is like a cheap version of the old game. I will start looking for a new spades because I don't even like playing this version.
Update messed up the game!

Love a good game of spades
by Marth Sasquatch 211 on 2017/10/11 20:47
This spades game really grew on me. I love the UI compared to other online spades games, and the fact that it's just a lot of fun.
Fun!
by Spiga357 on 2019/05/10 07:33
Learned how to play bid wiz thanks to this only negative so far is pop up for rating doesn’t work. Have to enter so store to leave review.
Spades
by rscotty33 on 2019/01/08 17:32
A little different from the way I play the game but I’m learning. One thing, it has to many commercials.
Nice game
by Ztolle on 2017/10/12 00:01
If you're a card shark or just a casual player, this ranks right up there with other great online spades, poker, and bridge card games. It's a fun free spades game
What happened to Spades King?!
by March 1 2016 Reviewer on 2017/09/26 16:23
I used to have Spades King, which was a decent game despite too many ads. Today it updated and was replaced with Simple Spades, which is just awful. Dumbest AI I've ever seen and minus a lot of the nice features of Spades King like the score graph and hand histories. Terrible, terrible game now!
Poor new version
by Colliers5 on 2017/10/28 18:56
This new version is juvenile and slow. The graphics are poor and it takes forever to play a round. The scoring isn't even the same. Used to play all the time now I'm looking for a different ap.
What happened?
by tayb1994 on 2017/10/07 03:06
The gameplay is horrible. It’s like the computers don’t even know how to play spades. I can no longer look at my previous hand, like before the update. I like the updated display. Just keep the original features.
Boo!
by chasemypaige on 2017/06/09 13:22
Crashes every time you have to watch a video for a coin and the game is lost. There is no way to opt out of watching the video so you can only play one hand at a time because the video comes up after each hand.
Bags way too easy to get
by Chuba216 on 2018/06/14 03:10
The bags are calculated per player and not per team, so you can get set and still develop bags in a round. This doesn’t seem fair and is not natural as nobody plays like that in real life. And the opponents are so easy. It’s like they are not even trying to play.
Bring back Spades King
by Cincy44er on 2018/04/20 01:30
This new version is horrible. Why did you go and mess things up? I’ve been trying to find another decent spades app since this one is nowhere near as good as the earlier version. Was this meant to be for small children? Horrible
Needs improvement
by B J Fan on 2017/11/21 15:07
Spade king was much better. Help section is not helpful, I would love to be able to change the settings for the way I play spades.

I’ve had the ads free version for years but since the iOS 11 release its been incompatible. It appears that the lite version was updated but I don’t want to deal with all the adds, especially since I’ve paid to not do so.
Bring back the old spades

Don’t like double tapping to play a card. The opponents don’t play intelligently. The score sheet is hard to figure out compared to the old format. I played the old spades almost obsessively and I have yet to finish a game with this new one.
Went from OK to bad with last update

There were always some quirks in the game logic but it was tolerable. Since last update, logic is out the window, making game impossible to play. Obviously, programmers have never actually played the game.
