Seven Seas Solitaire
JUST A WARNING..after the fact
I bought this game when it first came out, and now I am adding a review after the fact, to warn any gamers contemplating buying this game, that it is great at first, but towards the end it is simply impossible. I hate games where you can't finish, so every day, I go back to it for one level, to see if I can get through. Alas....not to be. The cards are dealt out in so many layers that is virtually next to impossible to get 4 perfects in the nine rounds. The cards just keep repeating themselves; what you have showing is what it will give you. Eventually, you use up all your money trying to finish by using cannon balls...but forget it...it is just impossible...and totally maddening.
Beware! DO NOT BUY if you can't stand being unable to finish!

Progress regularly "undone"
I quit after half an hour. Which is so rare for me as I simply love this type of game, and almost bought it without even testing. So glad I didn't! Too many flaws....
- I ended a hand with a chain of 19, but the "best chain" tracker still only showed my best chain as 8
- on scene 5 of 6, I achieved the 5000-gold goal - got the popup that struck off the goal - but at the end of scene 6, I was told that I had failed as I had not achieved the 5000 gold requirement. And no, I didn't spend any ;)
- several "addition" errors on scoring ... say I earn 700 on scene 1, then earn 900 on scene 2 ... the end of scene 2 it will say "scene score 900 - level score 1020" or something foolish like that - ignoring most (but not all) of what I'd earned previously.
I simply cannot play a game that has flaws like this - no matter how good the graphics, story, design, music, power-ups, or anything else may be. :(

Too many glitches
I generally love these games like Fairway Solitaire. This one has too many gremlins that make it hard to advance the levels. Things like: I lost at levels because I got too many of the same card that I cannot use. Don't need 5 sixes in a row! I don't think the power-ups are powerful or even useful sometimes. If you like these games, I would try another.
