I reeeeaaaalllly like the game but too many advertisements for more games! Every now and then; maybe. But, really too many!
Glitchy.
by No tech gal on 2019/05/19 01:12
Hard to get a card where it is supposed to go! Tap or move sometimes the card does not stay. So frustrating! You answered “no tech gal. The card place themselves upon tapping...”. WRONG...sometimes I tap AND THE CARDS DO NOT MOVE. THEN I try to manually move them and again they do not move! Guess you didn’t understand what I was trying to say!!

Problem with software
by Lisabee43 on 2019/05/13 06:40
I've enjoyed playing brainium games for years including this solitaire. Lately a problem developed after winning a game the next game dealt freezes on my screen. There is no response when I tap on the screen. I have tried deleting the app and try again, but the same problem keeps happening. Anyone else have this problem? My brainium Free Cell has no glitches. Some debugging is needed.

After every game an ad pops up, so annoying. But their logarithm doesn't allow higher than a 31% win rate, so it's not worth wasting your time.

Frustrating app
by ameliapovelites2136 on 2019/05/06 03:16
I enjoy some aspects of this solitaire app but find it frustrating to play. I can go game after game with only one or two aces. So many games have so little chance to actually play that I spend my time simply turning cards over and not getting to do anything. Frustrating.
Not random cards
by fscsert on 2019/05/06 02:49
Cards dealt are way too often all black or all red or all low cards or all high cards or same two or three numbers. I have compared using a deck of cards, the deck deals a variety of cards way more often. Very frustrating

An advertisement app with some card playing in between
by Rowanmoon on 2019/05/04 15:11
If you like to play solitaire don’t get this app. The games are short (you loose a lot) and you have to watch an ad for one of their other games in between each game.
What’s happened
by Garrant on 2019/05/04 11:42
Ladies and Gents. Did you have to change the algorithm in the last few weeks? To that extent? You could make it more sophisticated, complicated, but in 8-10% games played card layout is definitely unsolvable. Rarely cant even get pass the first row. Lets hope you will do something about it.

It works well, until it freezes when you try to deal a new game. Sometimes, I have to put my phone in sleep mode, then wake it up to get out of the game. Other times, I have to restart my phone to be able to unfreeze the game so I can play. Really annoying.

Love the app, but don’t like the ads
by EBethCMAIII on 2019/04/25 03:35

Questionable deal methodology
by Consultantsunlt on 2019/04/24 04:36
We ran over fifty games, the initial deal delivered 3 cards of the same value across the suits more than 50% of the time. The ads are repetitive and poorly done! None could convince anyone to spend their time and money on them. Visually, it has a good clean look. It plays quickly and doesn’t crash.

Best solitaire game I've ever played
by Frankinchobee on 2018/04/24 03:58
I've played a lot of solitaire games over the years. Most of them were decent games and some were just terrible. What really sets this particular game above the rest is it's simplicity of design and how close it gets to a real life experience. No two games are the same and it's really impressive how the developers have been able to design the game in such a way that it feels like I'm playing with a real deck of cards that are being shuffled and dealt in a truly random way. The best compliment I can pay to the developers is to let them know that they've created a game that has been a really great way kill some time and immerse myself in the experience that helps to relieve stress and promote relaxation. Kudos to the developers and publishers. Thanks for creating a great game that I would have been more than happy to pay for but have been able to enjoy it for no money at all. If you enjoy solitaire, I can recommend this game without reservation. Give it a try, I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
Drop the Las Vegas Slots ads
by Lignamorren on 2018/01/24 06:45
The new ads for Las Vegas Slots are deadly. I mean that -- they either crash the Solitaire app or force you to force-quit it, sometimes dropping you back into the middle of the game you just won. Ads of any kind are wretched abominations but these are worse. Update: those particular ads haven't shown up lately, but I will take your suggestion of screenshots in future. I have noticed, however, a rise in the number of ads that take more and more time before you can dismiss them. One of the nice features of your game was that the ads were always quickly dismissable, and I'd hate to see you use ads that take even five seconds before I can get rid of them. I understand that you need ad revenue, but it sure makes games unpleasant. I don't have a good solution, but it feels like paying to get rid of ads is a form of extortion. "We'll make your experience more and more unpleasant unless you pay up. Capisce?" Otherwise, nice game!
Decent version of Solitaire
by C€J£H& on 2018/12/23 06:06
I recently switch from a Windows 10 phone to an Apple iPhone. I tried to find a version of this game similar to what I had on that phone. Game play on this version of Solitaire is good. Two areas of one improvement would be make the “undo” button immediately available (currently on a pull up menu), and find a different way to display the adds. Not having the undo button on the main screen adds several seconds to the time it takes to successfully solve the hand. On the version I played on my old phone I regularly got below two minutes to solve the hand, but the best I can do with this version is 2 minutes 20 seconds. Being forced to watch a 5 second add after (on average) every other deal is rather off-putting. Perhaps that is the Apple phone App way, but I still might look for a different version of this game on the iPhone because of it. Otherwise, good game.
Save your house
by fickthissite on 2019/04/19 12:15
On the solitaire game - when I finish a solitaire game & request a new game, I get an ad for a game called “Save your house” that depicts a burning house. I don’t know who thinks it would be fun to see this or play this game. Anyone who’s ever been through a house fire would be traumatized by this, seeing it multiple times a day. You can hit X & get rid of it but only after several seconds & it comes right back the next time. I hate it. It’s psychologically upsetting. I will never play this game. Some of the ads you can delete permanently but this one doesn’t seem to have that option. I have reported this to Branium, who apparently is the company offering the games but have had no response & no results. Whatever sick individual that thinks it’s fun showing a burning house needs psychological counseling.
Enjoyable, but also annoying
by LLM221 on 2018/01/07 17:48
What other reviewers have said is true -- the cards are not as random as if you were playing with a real deck. The game seems to go in cycles of winning for a stretch and then not being able to win for a (long?) stretch. That said, I'm mostly using it for mindless passing of time, so I just keep going. I don't even mind the ads, as long as I can just X them away. The ads that have timers, lasting 5 seconds or more, or multiple pages are a different matter. And, just recently, ads with sound have been popping up, and, if one isn't paying attention in order to silence them quickly, they are very noisy! I have no desire to draw attention to myself in a public place or on an airplane, or to interrupt someone nearby who is reading, watching tv or on the phone. (I realize I could mute my device, but I shouldn't have to.) If these ads continue, I probably will delete this app.
Random algorithms? Riiight!
by aspanky7 on 2017/05/30 21:08
This is a very addictive and fun game as are almost every other solitaire app out there. The most annoying thing about this version is the supposed "random" algorithm that chooses the cards. These are about as random as a dirty casino slot machine. You will never be able to get above a 20% win rate because of the cards that are "chosen" to start the game. I have played well over a thousand games and at LEAST half of those games started with either ALL red or black cards, all low number cards, or ,the most infuriating of all, every single card in a suit. Entirely too many time this game deals out all 4 cards in a suit and even more often 3 cards from one and 3 cards from another. I've played solitaire since I was a child and NO other computerized solitaire game (NOR when I've played with actual cards shuffled and dealt by myself) has been this maddening and impossible to win. Yes it IS fun but it is also absolute crap and absolutely NOT random!
Best graphics I think
by Jgcool01 on 2017/03/28 19:40
I would like to see the undo button on the screen all the time or have the option to have it there instead of having to pull up the menu. Like most games now it is crammed full of ads which just get in the way and make it unenjoyable. I decided to delete the game from my iPhone because of this. I think these guys have the best graphics and sound though. I think the apps are affordable. With solitaire I would like to option to stack the columns one way or the other. FreeCell gives you an option of switching the top around to where you want things and I like solitaire to do the same. With FreeCell I have a good one ratio, but with the regular solitaire the win ratio is very poor. I don't believe in making difficulty levels, just have it be random and you win what you win. With the redo button how can you lose.
Good game, annoying ads
by Kat634 on 2019/04/08 22:03
Why don’t you thank us by getting rid of the horrible ads? The game itself is fine, but the tacky ads are really, really, really annoying. Unless you enjoy being irritated, you have to turn off wifi, or turn off Solitaire's cellular access, to avoid the ads. The ads are for crap that no one would want. Just to be extra annoying, occasionally an ad runs for quite a while before offering you an option to dismiss it, and in one instance, tapping the barely visible x did nothing whatsoever. The ad, which was for some dumb shoot-at-stuff game, was stuck. Closing and reopening Solitaire did nothing. The only way to get rid of the ad was to reboot the iPad. This is not acceptable. Whatever is spawning these ads needs to be sucked into a black hole.
One fault
by reallytrulyfree on 2018/06/19 13:16
I love your games. I look for your games. One problem I have found is minute but makes me crazy. The drop up menu when playing solitaire to go back a step or start a new game is on the bottom of my screen which is where all of my frequently used apps are and nearly every time I want your drop up menu I get my frequently used app drop up. It particularly seems to happen when I am close to winning a game I think and I see a card that the game did not pick up and place on the correct spot and I try to go back to get it. Just a pet peeve of mine. Doesn’t mean I will stop playing because you have the best games by far.
A Great Solitaire Version
by Mick's Game on 2017/09/19 16:26
Still enjoy this version of Solitaire. But for the past few weeks, the advertisement for Find the Clues game has fatal flaw; when pressing X, the app closes. I have used this app for a couple of years and found it to be a great version of the basic solitaire. I use the app daily just for relaxation. But I also pay attention to the stats being kept (about 40% wins) as well as the achievements which just gives me smiles, like 'Night Owl'. The ads that are shown don't interrupt my game, but appear between games and are easily dismissed. In addition, I also use FreeCell from the same maker which is another good solitaire game.
Love the app however....
by Nchild6 on 2017/09/18 06:23
I am an avid solitaire person, probably one of my favorite games. I absolutely love this app. Love the fact I can personalize the background & the cards too! The undo option is great, align with options of draw 3 or vegas scoring. Sometimes I want it, sometimes I don't. I like the options there. However, as of recently it's been freezing nonstop, everyone other card I touch *game freezes* and I have to exit and restart the app. There are a lot of ads which I understand, however those too freeze the app quite often. Only app I have that freezes. It's frustrating. Especially when, like I said, am a solitaire junkie basically. Might find a new one if it continues to be too bad. Only reason for 3 instead of 5 stars.
Use to be a good game
by Tommore2003 on 2018/01/09 16:33
Rarely write a poor review but this apps advertisements between each game have gotten excessive and obnoxious. After most games the commercial ad is loud and long. Sometimes it requires multiple clicks to bypass the ad and get back to the game. Bummer this app has gotten so ad focused as it really has diminished the experience. Update - was trying to include screen shots. Still loud ads running for 5+ seconds. Most have ability to mute but not all can be muted. Unpleasant experience to have noisy ads. Some ads do require multiple clicks, one to mute, second click after five seconds to close screen, then another ad for same game comes up. Three clicks to remove ad. This all changed from previous experience which had almost all silent ads. More pleasant experience.
Brainium games
by another Proud Vet on 2018/11/04 02:28
I have found the Brainium games to be an excellent way to pass much idle time, now that I am disabled and home bound. These games are both fun, challenging, and addictive. I really enjoy and appreciate the way the time seems to fly while I am not only passing the day, but I am also keeping my mind sharp. I also use the free games, because they save me money, and keep me alert when the ads’ appear. I have also noticed that some of the ads’ are for some pretty nifty, sometimes ingenious products. All in all, I am thankful for Brainium games and their sponsors; a really great match! Joseph B.
Most Challenging Solitaire
by Goldylocksca on 2017/10/28 02:41
Other games have not challenged me as much as this game. I do question, however, why there are what I have found to be "unsolvable" games.... and why you offer "hints" which have no positive outcome. The game has me improving my overall strategies. My stats are at about 74%, and I hope to keep improving....Please developers answer what percentage of games are not winnable. Do not like wasting my time if there are non winnable games and you have yet to find a way to filter them out. For me to give this game a higher rating, you would need to ONLY include winnable games....
Excellent game; timed ads are annoying
by flyindon on 2016/12/16 23:18
This would get five stars except for the annoying method of advertising. Sure, I understand you gotta' earn some dough either by sale or through advertising revenue, but having an ad remain on the screen for such a long time is annoying and actually is counterproductive -- even if I am interested in the product I will ignore it because I have been force fed the information. The good stuff: The game is great. The graphics are pleasing and the game seems to do a good job of randomizing the cards, making the game fair and entertaining.
A player
by Wordsnphrases on 2017/01/16 23:30
Fun, relaxing. Great way to learn how to play solitaire. You can undo any move, and you can replay any game. When I lose a game, I frequently replay it and often win on the second or third try. In any game of solitaire, even with real cards, on average, only 60% of the games can be won. So I am pleased with my average--47%--that means I am winning almost 5 out of every 6 games that it is possible to win. Also makes me think of life--success depends on how you play your cards, and sometimes, you just can't win, so just move on and don't take it personal.
Ads are out of control!
by ADcrazyAPP on 2019/01/17 17:36
The branium app developers have decided you MUST watch 30 second commercials every time you open their apps, and then force you to watch them again every few games. I’m used to some ads, but this is over the top. Some of the ads have loud soundtracks with video. There are other folks offering games that are not this ridiculous with the mandatory ad time. I don’t open the branium apps as much anymore. Since I rated them earlier, the long, loud commercials have disappeared! Thanks for taking the time to rein in some of these ads that were out of control. Much appreciated!
Throttled win rate.
by Uglybuster on 2018/01/06 02:48
Two things that are maddeningly wrong about this game. One is if you are on airplane mode so that the adds can’t run the win rate drops to zero. And worse. It doesn’t even let you “feel” like you’re winning. You’re lucky to get four or five flips. The second you turn off airplane mode the win rate shoots up in a ridiculously obvious way. You’ll be able to get tons of flips even if you don’t win every hand. Problem two is the annoying adds. Even with the airline mode off the win rate is lower than it should be and you’ll have to hit “new game” a lot. Then a video starts and shuts off your music so it can run a stupid clip. If you’re renewing your games a lot trying to get even just one win you’ll get 4 or 5 interruptions in the middle of a good song. So frustrating!
Nice single tap interface
by Bill657483 on 2019/03/20 16:22
After one or two hang ups it runs smoothly. I especially like the single tap interface that pretty much does the right thing when you tap a card. The auto-finish button that quietly appears when all of the cards on the table are visible is nice. The animation after you "win" is cute but boring after a few times. HOWEVER—Occasional ads, fine. Ads with loud music, HELL NO! I’m frequently playing this game while waiting in a quiet place with other people. P.S.: the ads got quiet for a few months but in the last few days I’m getting LOUD ADS WITH NO MUTE BUTTON - Shame on you!
Cool
by hhhayden07 on 2018/01/18 23:59
Solitaire is the coolest game I have ever played it makes your brain work while on a device but for children I’m might be a little challenging and children might get a little frustrated and that is not good. But all in all solitaire is a god game for ages 12-90 if you live that long. So if your interested in making your brain hurt and make your kids mad at you then go ahead get solitaire, I’m just kidding if you want your kids to think over the summer without a pen or pencil than you should go get solitaire. And that is my review about the wonderful game solitaire.
Very low percentage of wins versus losses
by Ohrings on 2016/11/12 18:52
I haven't been playing this game since my Apple IPhone 5 and I've had the iPhone 6 for about 15 months. I have played close to 2000 games and everyone exactly 377, less than 20%. I would very much like to have the ability to adjust the difficulty as other solitary games have. UPDATE!!!! I have let my wife play this game to see if she could do better than I have. We switched phones for a month. Her I five phone with a different game gives her A higher percentage of wins. Or percentage was right around 20% which was the same as mine. I would like to see the option to allow The user to adjust the difficulty.
Mostly great game
by Phcytech on 2017/10/20 23:43
I love solitaire. I play it at work and home. I can go through a game in 1-2 minutes usually. Only complaint is lots of ads. And not just in between games. Sometimes the screen freezes and not even closing the app then signing back in helps. The other day I finished a game and the same starting cards came up. Even when I closed the app and went back in, it was the same exact cards! Finally just quit for the night and it was fixed the next day. But over all, I love this app.
The slots ads are horrible
by Epost91 on 2018/05/15 22:59
I love the game. Haven’t had problems till now. The slots ads don’t give you an option to close them. They just direct you to the App Store. After that the Solitaire app crashes and when reloaded it just loads up the same game you were on. I’m not able to open a new game because it keeps showing the same glitchy ad every time. I deleted the last Solitaire app I had because of this same problem. I’d like to not have to find another one. Please get rid of these horrible ads. It’s the “Piggy Slots” ad that is causing problems for me.
Update: upgrading my rating because problem appears to be resolved.
by MakinLemonade on 2019/03/29 13:29
Update: I’m upgrading my rating because the problem I complained about seems to be fixed. It hasn’t happened in many months. Thank you! Original review: The game itself is quite good and I’ve enjoyed it in the past, but I’m significantly downgrading it now due to ads that cause the app to freeze up or crash. And, more importantly, a few ads the ads have started blasting loud music even when you have your phone set on silent.
I would have given it 5 stars, but .............
by Regina. Hogan on 2017/11/07 09:06
The cards move so slow when you win! I do like to play. It is relaxing and I can still have a conversation with someone should they wonder by. I had a game once & when you won the cards world break like glass and make a tinkling sound. It was cute. I don’t mind the ads so much except when they won’t let you leave. They make the “ X “ really small in the corner most of the time, but sometimes they just take you to a site or they worm their way in to your private area and I don’t like that at all. Thank You....Hogan Hatcher
One of the better solitaire games
by jamval55 on 2017/03/13 06:38
I like the physical characteristics of this game, especially the fact that you can make the cards big and plain. I like the fact that you can vary the challenge level, as you can in most games and that you don't have to reset that after every game, as you do with some. I would like it better if it showed when there are no more options to play within a game (as some do) and would like to see a "best" for time and number of cards played after each winning hand (as some do).
Great Rendition of Solitaire
by Acid Rock Racer on 2017/10/18 10:33
I find it funny that some reviewers have complained of some games that are difficult to beat. Sorry to break it to ya, but there is a finite number of possible games in solitaire. As such some are not possible to win. Others are exceptionally difficult to win. While some are just hard to win. And so on and so forth. But this game is a very good reproduction of the real world card game. Nice adjustability, with some nice features. Overall, one of the best digital versions I have encountered.
Give up and move on ?
by Sarunai77 on 2018/07/23 23:44
I don’t know if it’s a pro or con , but some solitaire apps stop the gam when there are no more possible moves or solutions so it saves you time and you move on. But this app leaves you keep trying and trying. I spent 3 days trying to finish a game and i have tried all possible solutions as well as using hints, I realized that i should stop when the hints were useless and there was nothing more to do. I actually don’t know if that is a waste of time, but sometimes i feel it’s good to push us beyond our thinking limits.
Freeze
by Wassenaar review on 2017/09/19 14:49
It's a good game; user friendly and challenging enough, however it continues to freeze suddenly. In the past when it froze, the game lay-out looked horizontally "squeezed",and one could only uninstall and re-install. I spoke with one of the very pleasant and helpful developers. They apparently were aware of the problem, and were working on it. It seemed to be solved for a while but no, the freezing is back. No more horizontal squeeze, but no response to touching the screen, in mid play, or at the start. Annoying. Only uninstall and re-install. I am looking at another game but Branium has the best lay out and rules.
Fun when you just want to relax
by PoppyFalduto on 2017/08/07 02:33
I like this game for winding down for the day. Sometimes I check percentages (really only when I have lost several games in a row lol). Pros: easy to play, several options for scoring available. Cons: hint is available even when there are no moves left (shows you how to move things from column to column). If there are no moves to win, the option should be greyed out. Also agree with another post about the hint option location, would be better if it was easier to use if visable.
Ads aren’t formatted well. Not my favorite solitaire app.
by Kberrie on 2018/02/07 19:23
Most ads will stop the music from playing on my phone, regardless if my ringer is off or if the ad’s sound is not on. Some ads will have an x button in the corner that doesn’t work. I’ve noticed that most ads are all different formats from each other, which is not only annoying but also unprofessional. In regards to the game, most games I play are not solvable. I prefer apps that offer an option to play only solvable games. Also, the hints are useless most of the time. If it can’t further me into the game, it shouldn’t be a hint.
Love except for the ad "bug"
by bassline70 on 2017/09/15 05:00
Not sure if anyone else has this problem, but some ads I can't seem to close out of? I hit the 'x' and get no response after many tries. That is highly annoying because I can't pull up a new game until making several attempts to close the ads. I try to close and re-open the app, and it doesn't always help because it brings up the ad again after getting my previous hand again that I lost and asking for a new deal. Would be awesome without the ad bug!!
Solitaire Brainium--Beware!
by Miss Caveat on 2018/12/24 15:30
Played this for about 4 months. The promos in between new games became longer--up to 30 seconds. I learned I could work round this by tapping out, then tapping icon again. The game was good enough I was willing to tolerate this, as ads you could instantly tap out of were mixed in w/shorter ones. However, in last 2 days, a game ad has tried to automatically download a sample into my device. This is a gross invasion that I cannot tolerate--especially since I've had trouble w/browser hi-jackers that were hidden in apps. So, bye-bye, Brainium Solitaire. I realize ads are necessary for revenue, but the risk of infection & increasing delays are not necessary to me!
If I could buy it I would rate it a 5
by emmgee53 on 2018/03/07 05:15
But instead I have to see and skip ads for games I will never buy. Update: Not sure when I first wrote this review but I feel the same way today. I've never bought one of the games they interrupt you with. I forgot that I’d written essentially two reviews. I laughed when I read the above because I was going to write the same thing again. People! Almost everything you put up I try to close as fast as I can. Let me pay for this instead of dodging your ads.
Too many ads, and freezes too much
by Jhart79 on 2018/02/10 16:37
The game has gotten worse with each update, and there are way too many ads. Game freezes up quite a bit, and it doesn’t respond properly. Also the fact that if you have to undo a move it will automatically add time to your already existing time to cause you to go over is really not a very desirable feature. Almost like the creator of this game does not want a player to even be able to beat already set high scoring time, no matter what you do or how quickly you can get through a set. As soon as I find a suitable replacement game, I will be deleting this one.
Good app but...
by Aviator5 on 2018/06/14 03:07
I’m updating this review out of the respect that the company actually reached out, and asked me to screen shot the specific problem ad. Nice to see a company get behind their product, and try to improve issues. In between new games you may be subjected to an annoying game advertisement. It will have a 5 second counter before you can close it. Problem is it won’t close for at least 10-15 seconds. It’s extremely annoying.
Ads have become annoying
by Momofa2z on 2018/01/19 00:41
My first review said the ads didn’t bombard you. Well, they’ve changed. Now, ads are sometimes impossible to close. They have minimum times they stay up. And, some require you to hit two Xs from two different screens. I’ve even had to jump to the their links just to get them to close. That being said, I still play regularly. The layout is simple and the game doesn’t try to sell you more bells and whistles. I prefer it to any other Klondike solitaire out there.
The best available
by ID-Al on 2016/11/20 02:58
Very fast playing, love the cumulative scoring (I'm approaching 2,000,000 points) and how it saves time by automatically placing a card as you turn them up on the next logical move you have, yet giving you the option of reversing it. I enjoy the timing of games which allows me to see how quickly I can complete a game (currently my best time is 1:40 minutes). I've tried a number of other versions and greatly prefer this one.
Great Game!
by Margiann on 2017/04/25 16:56
This is the first solitaire game that I downloaded. I have since tried others and I end up deleting them because Brainium's is so versatile! I like all the options and replay choices, etc. I got addicted trying to compete with myself because it is so much fun! I believe it is great stimulation for my brain, so I am always playing it! Problem: lately it freezes up and I lose all my statistics and have to figure be the app all over again! VERY FRUSTRATING!
Solitaire by Brainium
by Skylar Leigh on 2017/01/06 04:59
I've been playing this for quite a while and find it very relaxing, especially when I can't sleep. The ads bug me when they place fake x's to get you to accidentally accept trying a new game, but usually I can go right back to playing. It's weird though, the past couple of weeks I can't seem to win very often. I was enjoying the perk I felt when I frequently won! Regardless, this version is great!
Solitaire
by MartiBMD on 2017/11/12 04:28
I’m addicted to this solitaire! I’ve seen reviews where people say it’s too hard to win-au contraire! I win about 2/3 of the games I play-granted I may have to replay the games a few times to win, but that’s the challenge. I do take issue with the awards and statistics of the app as they don’t seem to work properly. However, for a free game that takes a great way pass time, dose off to sleep, and compete against myself. My fastest time of 1:35 is my biggest challenge. All in all, it’s fun and free—what more can you ask for?
No More Moves Available
by ItsAGameOfNumbers on 2018/06/05 23:59
The game needs a “No More Moves Available” window/notification to pop up when there is no alternative rather than showing the same card or cards being switched around when asking for a “Hint”. It’s a complete waste of time to an otherwise enjoyable game. The dealt card placement is obviously predetermined so it shouldn’t be that difficult to program the notification in.
FROZEN.......
by FarkleFreak! on 2017/10/01 02:32
I love this game! Or at least, I did. I had acquired over 5.6 million points that I was quite proud of. And then my game started freezing & I couldn't get it to work. Period. I closed & restarted & phone several times over several days with no luck. This website suggested deleting the game & restarting it. Which I've just done. I'm electronically challenged & thought my original points would be restored. They weren't. I'm moving on to a competitors game. Grrrrrr.
The best game ever !!!
by patty' o on 2017/11/27 21:40
It’s a very good game to pass time when you are dog sitting for your granddaughter and Malibu wants to sleep. Also I already was enough to almost put me to sleep. Fun game and it all depends on how they are delt to you. Very cool game and passes the time away. My my taught me God bless her her heart ❤️. Was very rare she wasn’t playing at all times of the day or night. I seem to have picked that up from her. Not a bad thing I can think of too say about the game. All is good here thanks !!
Worst solitaire. Don’t waste your time
by bcnola on 2018/03/21 10:10
I have used this for some time and used to really enjoy it. However recently there are changes that are so frustrating that I have deleted the app. Every time it loads a new game there is at least one pair showing. If a pair is not showing, it will show up when you play the first card. As you progress through the game 2 or 3 of the same number cards ALWAYS show up. Every game becomes about those 1 or 2 numbers. In every game at least once, but most times frequently, when you move a card the same number card/color, or at least the same number card, is under the card you just moved. The game feels completely programmed and contrived. Not random draw at all. The ads went from stationary to 5 second loud ads. If you don’t want to wait every time you do your hand, stay away from this game. These clearly intentional changes have ruined what used to be a good game. Don’t waste your time on it in its current form.
Change in success ratios?
by dgeffken on 2017/05/17 06:02
Used to be I could take a quick break to relax and after a few tries find a winning sequence. Felt satisfied and distracted for about 5 minutes and ready to get back to more important items. Just took the better part of my day to see a win. More stressed and frustrated not than if I had played at all today. Did something change or did I hit the negative jackpot? Will not continue playing if it builds rather than relieves stress. Thanks much.
Paid version that forces you to deal with ads nonstop
by 747whaledriver on 2016/11/11 00:26
Good game, but the app is a bloody nuisance. You have to pay to play the game -and even then, you are forced to look at ads between every hand of solitaire, a complete nuisance (and an insult, since I'm paying for the privilege of looking at the stupid ads that you can't opt out of). It's not just avarice: it's extortion. There are better apps out there that you neither have to pay for -- or be forced to deal with the useless ads. This is what happen when app developers believe that your choices are limited -- and that they don't care what they force upon you.
Brainium gets it
by nutmegFrom79 on 2019/02/24 20:42
This is a good, simple Solitaire game that doesn’t have all the annoying bells and whistles that other apps do. The thing that really sets this apart from other mobile game apps, though, is that the ads can always be skipped after 5 seconds, AND, they’re muted by default. Those two things alone make it worthwhile to download. It’s obvious the folks at Brainium don’t just make games, but they like to play them, too.
Predictive Algorithm
by qkslvrvb on 2019/01/30 20:10
Unbalanced results and ability to produce consistent results point to a flawed algorithm and flawed data set or intentionally biased foundation. However the very predictive and annoying pop ups and adverts hold the player hostage at pace. Typical churn and burn game, even the idea that habitual play will increase iq is based on loose opinion rather than solid specific science regarding the game itself. Seems to be rooted on a vague ref to brain elasticity and theory rather than real data based, peer reviewed science. Scam a lama ding dong. But if you know that in advance and don’t mind, go for it, it’s rigged.

It’s a great game to play but annoying with the ads..would love to pay for an ad free version!
Too many,,
by Pain N on 2019/05/19 03:45
I reeeeaaaalllly like the game but too many advertisements for more games! Every now and then; maybe. But, really too many!
Glitchy.
by No tech gal on 2019/05/19 01:12
Hard to get a card where it is supposed to go! Tap or move sometimes the card does not stay. So frustrating! You answered “no tech gal. The card place themselves upon tapping...”. WRONG...sometimes I tap AND THE CARDS DO NOT MOVE. THEN I try to manually move them and again they do not move! Guess you didn’t understand what I was trying to say!!

A great game for the subway or when you lie in bed before going to sleep. The only drawback: it is so good that you never stop doing it till you accomplish Solitaire!

Problem with software
by Lisabee43 on 2019/05/13 06:40
I've enjoyed playing brainium games for years including this solitaire. Lately a problem developed after winning a game the next game dealt freezes on my screen. There is no response when I tap on the screen. I have tried deleting the app and try again, but the same problem keeps happening. Anyone else have this problem? My brainium Free Cell has no glitches. Some debugging is needed.
Does not look like playing cards

The hint provided are illogical and do not serve to get you closer to the end goal. The caricatures are all of white skin tone. I don’t like it.

Great......except that the Auto-complete button is too close to the Info button. Frustrating, whenever game finish is delayed by an Info screen, instead of stopping clock with Auto-Complete. Please separate these two buttons.

by Goodguysarerare on 2019/05/07 01:37
After every game an ad pops up, so annoying. But their logarithm doesn't allow higher than a 31% win rate, so it's not worth wasting your time.

Frustrating app
by ameliapovelites2136 on 2019/05/06 03:16
I enjoy some aspects of this solitaire app but find it frustrating to play. I can go game after game with only one or two aces. So many games have so little chance to actually play that I spend my time simply turning cards over and not getting to do anything. Frustrating.
Not random cards
by fscsert on 2019/05/06 02:49
Cards dealt are way too often all black or all red or all low cards or all high cards or same two or three numbers. I have compared using a deck of cards, the deck deals a variety of cards way more often. Very frustrating

An advertisement app with some card playing in between
by Rowanmoon on 2019/05/04 15:11
If you like to play solitaire don’t get this app. The games are short (you loose a lot) and you have to watch an ad for one of their other games in between each game.
What’s happened
by Garrant on 2019/05/04 11:42
Ladies and Gents. Did you have to change the algorithm in the last few weeks? To that extent? You could make it more sophisticated, complicated, but in 8-10% games played card layout is definitely unsolvable. Rarely cant even get pass the first row. Lets hope you will do something about it.

It works well, until it freezes when you try to deal a new game. Sometimes, I have to put my phone in sleep mode, then wake it up to get out of the game. Other times, I have to restart my phone to be able to unfreeze the game so I can play. Really annoying.

I love this app, but for one thing I don’t like the ads. They can be very disturbing and you usually get an ad when you win a game on the bright side I love how you can change the backround,card features, and mostly everything! (Except the ads!)

Questionable deal methodology
by Consultantsunlt on 2019/04/24 04:36
We ran over fifty games, the initial deal delivered 3 cards of the same value across the suits more than 50% of the time. The ads are repetitive and poorly done! None could convince anyone to spend their time and money on them. Visually, it has a good clean look. It plays quickly and doesn’t crash.

Too small

Best solitaire game I've ever played
by Frankinchobee on 2018/04/24 03:58
I've played a lot of solitaire games over the years. Most of them were decent games and some were just terrible. What really sets this particular game above the rest is it's simplicity of design and how close it gets to a real life experience. No two games are the same and it's really impressive how the developers have been able to design the game in such a way that it feels like I'm playing with a real deck of cards that are being shuffled and dealt in a truly random way. The best compliment I can pay to the developers is to let them know that they've created a game that has been a really great way kill some time and immerse myself in the experience that helps to relieve stress and promote relaxation. Kudos to the developers and publishers. Thanks for creating a great game that I would have been more than happy to pay for but have been able to enjoy it for no money at all. If you enjoy solitaire, I can recommend this game without reservation. Give it a try, I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
Drop the Las Vegas Slots ads
by Lignamorren on 2018/01/24 06:45
The new ads for Las Vegas Slots are deadly. I mean that -- they either crash the Solitaire app or force you to force-quit it, sometimes dropping you back into the middle of the game you just won. Ads of any kind are wretched abominations but these are worse. Update: those particular ads haven't shown up lately, but I will take your suggestion of screenshots in future. I have noticed, however, a rise in the number of ads that take more and more time before you can dismiss them. One of the nice features of your game was that the ads were always quickly dismissable, and I'd hate to see you use ads that take even five seconds before I can get rid of them. I understand that you need ad revenue, but it sure makes games unpleasant. I don't have a good solution, but it feels like paying to get rid of ads is a form of extortion. "We'll make your experience more and more unpleasant unless you pay up. Capisce?" Otherwise, nice game!
Decent version of Solitaire
by C€J£H& on 2018/12/23 06:06
I recently switch from a Windows 10 phone to an Apple iPhone. I tried to find a version of this game similar to what I had on that phone. Game play on this version of Solitaire is good. Two areas of one improvement would be make the “undo” button immediately available (currently on a pull up menu), and find a different way to display the adds. Not having the undo button on the main screen adds several seconds to the time it takes to successfully solve the hand. On the version I played on my old phone I regularly got below two minutes to solve the hand, but the best I can do with this version is 2 minutes 20 seconds. Being forced to watch a 5 second add after (on average) every other deal is rather off-putting. Perhaps that is the Apple phone App way, but I still might look for a different version of this game on the iPhone because of it. Otherwise, good game.
Save your house
by fickthissite on 2019/04/19 12:15
On the solitaire game - when I finish a solitaire game & request a new game, I get an ad for a game called “Save your house” that depicts a burning house. I don’t know who thinks it would be fun to see this or play this game. Anyone who’s ever been through a house fire would be traumatized by this, seeing it multiple times a day. You can hit X & get rid of it but only after several seconds & it comes right back the next time. I hate it. It’s psychologically upsetting. I will never play this game. Some of the ads you can delete permanently but this one doesn’t seem to have that option. I have reported this to Branium, who apparently is the company offering the games but have had no response & no results. Whatever sick individual that thinks it’s fun showing a burning house needs psychological counseling.
Enjoyable, but also annoying
by LLM221 on 2018/01/07 17:48
What other reviewers have said is true -- the cards are not as random as if you were playing with a real deck. The game seems to go in cycles of winning for a stretch and then not being able to win for a (long?) stretch. That said, I'm mostly using it for mindless passing of time, so I just keep going. I don't even mind the ads, as long as I can just X them away. The ads that have timers, lasting 5 seconds or more, or multiple pages are a different matter. And, just recently, ads with sound have been popping up, and, if one isn't paying attention in order to silence them quickly, they are very noisy! I have no desire to draw attention to myself in a public place or on an airplane, or to interrupt someone nearby who is reading, watching tv or on the phone. (I realize I could mute my device, but I shouldn't have to.) If these ads continue, I probably will delete this app.
Random algorithms? Riiight!
by aspanky7 on 2017/05/30 21:08
This is a very addictive and fun game as are almost every other solitaire app out there. The most annoying thing about this version is the supposed "random" algorithm that chooses the cards. These are about as random as a dirty casino slot machine. You will never be able to get above a 20% win rate because of the cards that are "chosen" to start the game. I have played well over a thousand games and at LEAST half of those games started with either ALL red or black cards, all low number cards, or ,the most infuriating of all, every single card in a suit. Entirely too many time this game deals out all 4 cards in a suit and even more often 3 cards from one and 3 cards from another. I've played solitaire since I was a child and NO other computerized solitaire game (NOR when I've played with actual cards shuffled and dealt by myself) has been this maddening and impossible to win. Yes it IS fun but it is also absolute crap and absolutely NOT random!
Best graphics I think
by Jgcool01 on 2017/03/28 19:40
I would like to see the undo button on the screen all the time or have the option to have it there instead of having to pull up the menu. Like most games now it is crammed full of ads which just get in the way and make it unenjoyable. I decided to delete the game from my iPhone because of this. I think these guys have the best graphics and sound though. I think the apps are affordable. With solitaire I would like to option to stack the columns one way or the other. FreeCell gives you an option of switching the top around to where you want things and I like solitaire to do the same. With FreeCell I have a good one ratio, but with the regular solitaire the win ratio is very poor. I don't believe in making difficulty levels, just have it be random and you win what you win. With the redo button how can you lose.
Good game, annoying ads
by Kat634 on 2019/04/08 22:03
Why don’t you thank us by getting rid of the horrible ads? The game itself is fine, but the tacky ads are really, really, really annoying. Unless you enjoy being irritated, you have to turn off wifi, or turn off Solitaire's cellular access, to avoid the ads. The ads are for crap that no one would want. Just to be extra annoying, occasionally an ad runs for quite a while before offering you an option to dismiss it, and in one instance, tapping the barely visible x did nothing whatsoever. The ad, which was for some dumb shoot-at-stuff game, was stuck. Closing and reopening Solitaire did nothing. The only way to get rid of the ad was to reboot the iPad. This is not acceptable. Whatever is spawning these ads needs to be sucked into a black hole.
One fault
by reallytrulyfree on 2018/06/19 13:16
I love your games. I look for your games. One problem I have found is minute but makes me crazy. The drop up menu when playing solitaire to go back a step or start a new game is on the bottom of my screen which is where all of my frequently used apps are and nearly every time I want your drop up menu I get my frequently used app drop up. It particularly seems to happen when I am close to winning a game I think and I see a card that the game did not pick up and place on the correct spot and I try to go back to get it. Just a pet peeve of mine. Doesn’t mean I will stop playing because you have the best games by far.
A Great Solitaire Version
by Mick's Game on 2017/09/19 16:26
Still enjoy this version of Solitaire. But for the past few weeks, the advertisement for Find the Clues game has fatal flaw; when pressing X, the app closes. I have used this app for a couple of years and found it to be a great version of the basic solitaire. I use the app daily just for relaxation. But I also pay attention to the stats being kept (about 40% wins) as well as the achievements which just gives me smiles, like 'Night Owl'. The ads that are shown don't interrupt my game, but appear between games and are easily dismissed. In addition, I also use FreeCell from the same maker which is another good solitaire game.
Love the app however....
by Nchild6 on 2017/09/18 06:23
I am an avid solitaire person, probably one of my favorite games. I absolutely love this app. Love the fact I can personalize the background & the cards too! The undo option is great, align with options of draw 3 or vegas scoring. Sometimes I want it, sometimes I don't. I like the options there. However, as of recently it's been freezing nonstop, everyone other card I touch *game freezes* and I have to exit and restart the app. There are a lot of ads which I understand, however those too freeze the app quite often. Only app I have that freezes. It's frustrating. Especially when, like I said, am a solitaire junkie basically. Might find a new one if it continues to be too bad. Only reason for 3 instead of 5 stars.
Use to be a good game
by Tommore2003 on 2018/01/09 16:33
Rarely write a poor review but this apps advertisements between each game have gotten excessive and obnoxious. After most games the commercial ad is loud and long. Sometimes it requires multiple clicks to bypass the ad and get back to the game. Bummer this app has gotten so ad focused as it really has diminished the experience. Update - was trying to include screen shots. Still loud ads running for 5+ seconds. Most have ability to mute but not all can be muted. Unpleasant experience to have noisy ads. Some ads do require multiple clicks, one to mute, second click after five seconds to close screen, then another ad for same game comes up. Three clicks to remove ad. This all changed from previous experience which had almost all silent ads. More pleasant experience.
Brainium games
by another Proud Vet on 2018/11/04 02:28
I have found the Brainium games to be an excellent way to pass much idle time, now that I am disabled and home bound. These games are both fun, challenging, and addictive. I really enjoy and appreciate the way the time seems to fly while I am not only passing the day, but I am also keeping my mind sharp. I also use the free games, because they save me money, and keep me alert when the ads’ appear. I have also noticed that some of the ads’ are for some pretty nifty, sometimes ingenious products. All in all, I am thankful for Brainium games and their sponsors; a really great match! Joseph B.
Most Challenging Solitaire
by Goldylocksca on 2017/10/28 02:41
Other games have not challenged me as much as this game. I do question, however, why there are what I have found to be "unsolvable" games.... and why you offer "hints" which have no positive outcome. The game has me improving my overall strategies. My stats are at about 74%, and I hope to keep improving....Please developers answer what percentage of games are not winnable. Do not like wasting my time if there are non winnable games and you have yet to find a way to filter them out. For me to give this game a higher rating, you would need to ONLY include winnable games....
Excellent game; timed ads are annoying
by flyindon on 2016/12/16 23:18
This would get five stars except for the annoying method of advertising. Sure, I understand you gotta' earn some dough either by sale or through advertising revenue, but having an ad remain on the screen for such a long time is annoying and actually is counterproductive -- even if I am interested in the product I will ignore it because I have been force fed the information. The good stuff: The game is great. The graphics are pleasing and the game seems to do a good job of randomizing the cards, making the game fair and entertaining.
A player
by Wordsnphrases on 2017/01/16 23:30
Fun, relaxing. Great way to learn how to play solitaire. You can undo any move, and you can replay any game. When I lose a game, I frequently replay it and often win on the second or third try. In any game of solitaire, even with real cards, on average, only 60% of the games can be won. So I am pleased with my average--47%--that means I am winning almost 5 out of every 6 games that it is possible to win. Also makes me think of life--success depends on how you play your cards, and sometimes, you just can't win, so just move on and don't take it personal.
Ads are out of control!
by ADcrazyAPP on 2019/01/17 17:36
The branium app developers have decided you MUST watch 30 second commercials every time you open their apps, and then force you to watch them again every few games. I’m used to some ads, but this is over the top. Some of the ads have loud soundtracks with video. There are other folks offering games that are not this ridiculous with the mandatory ad time. I don’t open the branium apps as much anymore. Since I rated them earlier, the long, loud commercials have disappeared! Thanks for taking the time to rein in some of these ads that were out of control. Much appreciated!
Throttled win rate.
by Uglybuster on 2018/01/06 02:48
Two things that are maddeningly wrong about this game. One is if you are on airplane mode so that the adds can’t run the win rate drops to zero. And worse. It doesn’t even let you “feel” like you’re winning. You’re lucky to get four or five flips. The second you turn off airplane mode the win rate shoots up in a ridiculously obvious way. You’ll be able to get tons of flips even if you don’t win every hand. Problem two is the annoying adds. Even with the airline mode off the win rate is lower than it should be and you’ll have to hit “new game” a lot. Then a video starts and shuts off your music so it can run a stupid clip. If you’re renewing your games a lot trying to get even just one win you’ll get 4 or 5 interruptions in the middle of a good song. So frustrating!
Nice single tap interface
by Bill657483 on 2019/03/20 16:22
After one or two hang ups it runs smoothly. I especially like the single tap interface that pretty much does the right thing when you tap a card. The auto-finish button that quietly appears when all of the cards on the table are visible is nice. The animation after you "win" is cute but boring after a few times. HOWEVER—Occasional ads, fine. Ads with loud music, HELL NO! I’m frequently playing this game while waiting in a quiet place with other people. P.S.: the ads got quiet for a few months but in the last few days I’m getting LOUD ADS WITH NO MUTE BUTTON - Shame on you!
Cool
by hhhayden07 on 2018/01/18 23:59
Solitaire is the coolest game I have ever played it makes your brain work while on a device but for children I’m might be a little challenging and children might get a little frustrated and that is not good. But all in all solitaire is a god game for ages 12-90 if you live that long. So if your interested in making your brain hurt and make your kids mad at you then go ahead get solitaire, I’m just kidding if you want your kids to think over the summer without a pen or pencil than you should go get solitaire. And that is my review about the wonderful game solitaire.
Very low percentage of wins versus losses
by Ohrings on 2016/11/12 18:52
I haven't been playing this game since my Apple IPhone 5 and I've had the iPhone 6 for about 15 months. I have played close to 2000 games and everyone exactly 377, less than 20%. I would very much like to have the ability to adjust the difficulty as other solitary games have. UPDATE!!!! I have let my wife play this game to see if she could do better than I have. We switched phones for a month. Her I five phone with a different game gives her A higher percentage of wins. Or percentage was right around 20% which was the same as mine. I would like to see the option to allow The user to adjust the difficulty.
Mostly great game
by Phcytech on 2017/10/20 23:43
I love solitaire. I play it at work and home. I can go through a game in 1-2 minutes usually. Only complaint is lots of ads. And not just in between games. Sometimes the screen freezes and not even closing the app then signing back in helps. The other day I finished a game and the same starting cards came up. Even when I closed the app and went back in, it was the same exact cards! Finally just quit for the night and it was fixed the next day. But over all, I love this app.
The slots ads are horrible
by Epost91 on 2018/05/15 22:59
I love the game. Haven’t had problems till now. The slots ads don’t give you an option to close them. They just direct you to the App Store. After that the Solitaire app crashes and when reloaded it just loads up the same game you were on. I’m not able to open a new game because it keeps showing the same glitchy ad every time. I deleted the last Solitaire app I had because of this same problem. I’d like to not have to find another one. Please get rid of these horrible ads. It’s the “Piggy Slots” ad that is causing problems for me.
Update: upgrading my rating because problem appears to be resolved.
by MakinLemonade on 2019/03/29 13:29
Update: I’m upgrading my rating because the problem I complained about seems to be fixed. It hasn’t happened in many months. Thank you! Original review: The game itself is quite good and I’ve enjoyed it in the past, but I’m significantly downgrading it now due to ads that cause the app to freeze up or crash. And, more importantly, a few ads the ads have started blasting loud music even when you have your phone set on silent.
I would have given it 5 stars, but .............
by Regina. Hogan on 2017/11/07 09:06
The cards move so slow when you win! I do like to play. It is relaxing and I can still have a conversation with someone should they wonder by. I had a game once & when you won the cards world break like glass and make a tinkling sound. It was cute. I don’t mind the ads so much except when they won’t let you leave. They make the “ X “ really small in the corner most of the time, but sometimes they just take you to a site or they worm their way in to your private area and I don’t like that at all. Thank You....Hogan Hatcher
One of the better solitaire games
by jamval55 on 2017/03/13 06:38
I like the physical characteristics of this game, especially the fact that you can make the cards big and plain. I like the fact that you can vary the challenge level, as you can in most games and that you don't have to reset that after every game, as you do with some. I would like it better if it showed when there are no more options to play within a game (as some do) and would like to see a "best" for time and number of cards played after each winning hand (as some do).
Great Rendition of Solitaire
by Acid Rock Racer on 2017/10/18 10:33
I find it funny that some reviewers have complained of some games that are difficult to beat. Sorry to break it to ya, but there is a finite number of possible games in solitaire. As such some are not possible to win. Others are exceptionally difficult to win. While some are just hard to win. And so on and so forth. But this game is a very good reproduction of the real world card game. Nice adjustability, with some nice features. Overall, one of the best digital versions I have encountered.
Give up and move on ?
by Sarunai77 on 2018/07/23 23:44
I don’t know if it’s a pro or con , but some solitaire apps stop the gam when there are no more possible moves or solutions so it saves you time and you move on. But this app leaves you keep trying and trying. I spent 3 days trying to finish a game and i have tried all possible solutions as well as using hints, I realized that i should stop when the hints were useless and there was nothing more to do. I actually don’t know if that is a waste of time, but sometimes i feel it’s good to push us beyond our thinking limits.
Freeze
by Wassenaar review on 2017/09/19 14:49
It's a good game; user friendly and challenging enough, however it continues to freeze suddenly. In the past when it froze, the game lay-out looked horizontally "squeezed",and one could only uninstall and re-install. I spoke with one of the very pleasant and helpful developers. They apparently were aware of the problem, and were working on it. It seemed to be solved for a while but no, the freezing is back. No more horizontal squeeze, but no response to touching the screen, in mid play, or at the start. Annoying. Only uninstall and re-install. I am looking at another game but Branium has the best lay out and rules.
Fun when you just want to relax
by PoppyFalduto on 2017/08/07 02:33
I like this game for winding down for the day. Sometimes I check percentages (really only when I have lost several games in a row lol). Pros: easy to play, several options for scoring available. Cons: hint is available even when there are no moves left (shows you how to move things from column to column). If there are no moves to win, the option should be greyed out. Also agree with another post about the hint option location, would be better if it was easier to use if visable.
Ads aren’t formatted well. Not my favorite solitaire app.
by Kberrie on 2018/02/07 19:23
Most ads will stop the music from playing on my phone, regardless if my ringer is off or if the ad’s sound is not on. Some ads will have an x button in the corner that doesn’t work. I’ve noticed that most ads are all different formats from each other, which is not only annoying but also unprofessional. In regards to the game, most games I play are not solvable. I prefer apps that offer an option to play only solvable games. Also, the hints are useless most of the time. If it can’t further me into the game, it shouldn’t be a hint.
Love except for the ad "bug"
by bassline70 on 2017/09/15 05:00
Not sure if anyone else has this problem, but some ads I can't seem to close out of? I hit the 'x' and get no response after many tries. That is highly annoying because I can't pull up a new game until making several attempts to close the ads. I try to close and re-open the app, and it doesn't always help because it brings up the ad again after getting my previous hand again that I lost and asking for a new deal. Would be awesome without the ad bug!!
Solitaire Brainium--Beware!
by Miss Caveat on 2018/12/24 15:30
Played this for about 4 months. The promos in between new games became longer--up to 30 seconds. I learned I could work round this by tapping out, then tapping icon again. The game was good enough I was willing to tolerate this, as ads you could instantly tap out of were mixed in w/shorter ones. However, in last 2 days, a game ad has tried to automatically download a sample into my device. This is a gross invasion that I cannot tolerate--especially since I've had trouble w/browser hi-jackers that were hidden in apps. So, bye-bye, Brainium Solitaire. I realize ads are necessary for revenue, but the risk of infection & increasing delays are not necessary to me!
If I could buy it I would rate it a 5
by emmgee53 on 2018/03/07 05:15
But instead I have to see and skip ads for games I will never buy. Update: Not sure when I first wrote this review but I feel the same way today. I've never bought one of the games they interrupt you with. I forgot that I’d written essentially two reviews. I laughed when I read the above because I was going to write the same thing again. People! Almost everything you put up I try to close as fast as I can. Let me pay for this instead of dodging your ads.
Too many ads, and freezes too much
by Jhart79 on 2018/02/10 16:37
The game has gotten worse with each update, and there are way too many ads. Game freezes up quite a bit, and it doesn’t respond properly. Also the fact that if you have to undo a move it will automatically add time to your already existing time to cause you to go over is really not a very desirable feature. Almost like the creator of this game does not want a player to even be able to beat already set high scoring time, no matter what you do or how quickly you can get through a set. As soon as I find a suitable replacement game, I will be deleting this one.
Good app but...
by Aviator5 on 2018/06/14 03:07
I’m updating this review out of the respect that the company actually reached out, and asked me to screen shot the specific problem ad. Nice to see a company get behind their product, and try to improve issues. In between new games you may be subjected to an annoying game advertisement. It will have a 5 second counter before you can close it. Problem is it won’t close for at least 10-15 seconds. It’s extremely annoying.
Ads have become annoying
by Momofa2z on 2018/01/19 00:41
My first review said the ads didn’t bombard you. Well, they’ve changed. Now, ads are sometimes impossible to close. They have minimum times they stay up. And, some require you to hit two Xs from two different screens. I’ve even had to jump to the their links just to get them to close. That being said, I still play regularly. The layout is simple and the game doesn’t try to sell you more bells and whistles. I prefer it to any other Klondike solitaire out there.
The best available
by ID-Al on 2016/11/20 02:58
Very fast playing, love the cumulative scoring (I'm approaching 2,000,000 points) and how it saves time by automatically placing a card as you turn them up on the next logical move you have, yet giving you the option of reversing it. I enjoy the timing of games which allows me to see how quickly I can complete a game (currently my best time is 1:40 minutes). I've tried a number of other versions and greatly prefer this one.
Great Game!
by Margiann on 2017/04/25 16:56
This is the first solitaire game that I downloaded. I have since tried others and I end up deleting them because Brainium's is so versatile! I like all the options and replay choices, etc. I got addicted trying to compete with myself because it is so much fun! I believe it is great stimulation for my brain, so I am always playing it! Problem: lately it freezes up and I lose all my statistics and have to figure be the app all over again! VERY FRUSTRATING!
Solitaire by Brainium
by Skylar Leigh on 2017/01/06 04:59
I've been playing this for quite a while and find it very relaxing, especially when I can't sleep. The ads bug me when they place fake x's to get you to accidentally accept trying a new game, but usually I can go right back to playing. It's weird though, the past couple of weeks I can't seem to win very often. I was enjoying the perk I felt when I frequently won! Regardless, this version is great!
Solitaire
by MartiBMD on 2017/11/12 04:28
I’m addicted to this solitaire! I’ve seen reviews where people say it’s too hard to win-au contraire! I win about 2/3 of the games I play-granted I may have to replay the games a few times to win, but that’s the challenge. I do take issue with the awards and statistics of the app as they don’t seem to work properly. However, for a free game that takes a great way pass time, dose off to sleep, and compete against myself. My fastest time of 1:35 is my biggest challenge. All in all, it’s fun and free—what more can you ask for?
No More Moves Available
by ItsAGameOfNumbers on 2018/06/05 23:59
The game needs a “No More Moves Available” window/notification to pop up when there is no alternative rather than showing the same card or cards being switched around when asking for a “Hint”. It’s a complete waste of time to an otherwise enjoyable game. The dealt card placement is obviously predetermined so it shouldn’t be that difficult to program the notification in.
FROZEN.......
by FarkleFreak! on 2017/10/01 02:32
I love this game! Or at least, I did. I had acquired over 5.6 million points that I was quite proud of. And then my game started freezing & I couldn't get it to work. Period. I closed & restarted & phone several times over several days with no luck. This website suggested deleting the game & restarting it. Which I've just done. I'm electronically challenged & thought my original points would be restored. They weren't. I'm moving on to a competitors game. Grrrrrr.
The best game ever !!!
by patty' o on 2017/11/27 21:40
It’s a very good game to pass time when you are dog sitting for your granddaughter and Malibu wants to sleep. Also I already was enough to almost put me to sleep. Fun game and it all depends on how they are delt to you. Very cool game and passes the time away. My my taught me God bless her her heart ❤️. Was very rare she wasn’t playing at all times of the day or night. I seem to have picked that up from her. Not a bad thing I can think of too say about the game. All is good here thanks !!
Worst solitaire. Don’t waste your time
by bcnola on 2018/03/21 10:10
I have used this for some time and used to really enjoy it. However recently there are changes that are so frustrating that I have deleted the app. Every time it loads a new game there is at least one pair showing. If a pair is not showing, it will show up when you play the first card. As you progress through the game 2 or 3 of the same number cards ALWAYS show up. Every game becomes about those 1 or 2 numbers. In every game at least once, but most times frequently, when you move a card the same number card/color, or at least the same number card, is under the card you just moved. The game feels completely programmed and contrived. Not random draw at all. The ads went from stationary to 5 second loud ads. If you don’t want to wait every time you do your hand, stay away from this game. These clearly intentional changes have ruined what used to be a good game. Don’t waste your time on it in its current form.
Change in success ratios?
by dgeffken on 2017/05/17 06:02
Used to be I could take a quick break to relax and after a few tries find a winning sequence. Felt satisfied and distracted for about 5 minutes and ready to get back to more important items. Just took the better part of my day to see a win. More stressed and frustrated not than if I had played at all today. Did something change or did I hit the negative jackpot? Will not continue playing if it builds rather than relieves stress. Thanks much.
Paid version that forces you to deal with ads nonstop
by 747whaledriver on 2016/11/11 00:26
Good game, but the app is a bloody nuisance. You have to pay to play the game -and even then, you are forced to look at ads between every hand of solitaire, a complete nuisance (and an insult, since I'm paying for the privilege of looking at the stupid ads that you can't opt out of). It's not just avarice: it's extortion. There are better apps out there that you neither have to pay for -- or be forced to deal with the useless ads. This is what happen when app developers believe that your choices are limited -- and that they don't care what they force upon you.
Brainium gets it
by nutmegFrom79 on 2019/02/24 20:42
This is a good, simple Solitaire game that doesn’t have all the annoying bells and whistles that other apps do. The thing that really sets this apart from other mobile game apps, though, is that the ads can always be skipped after 5 seconds, AND, they’re muted by default. Those two things alone make it worthwhile to download. It’s obvious the folks at Brainium don’t just make games, but they like to play them, too.
Predictive Algorithm
by qkslvrvb on 2019/01/30 20:10
Unbalanced results and ability to produce consistent results point to a flawed algorithm and flawed data set or intentionally biased foundation. However the very predictive and annoying pop ups and adverts hold the player hostage at pace. Typical churn and burn game, even the idea that habitual play will increase iq is based on loose opinion rather than solid specific science regarding the game itself. Seems to be rooted on a vague ref to brain elasticity and theory rather than real data based, peer reviewed science. Scam a lama ding dong. But if you know that in advance and don’t mind, go for it, it’s rigged.
