Waterscape Solitaire: American Falls
When you want a relaxing pace
This is an enjoyable game for times when you don't want anything stressful. It is a relaxing solitaire game with soothing sound effects, soft music, and beautiful waterfall backgrounds.
I almost didn't even try it when I read one of the reviews that stated it didn't save your game, but decided to give it a chance. Well, it DOES save. I tested it several times in the trial mode and had no problem at all with that.

This is a perfect game to relax too, I really enjoyed this and the piano music in the background was very soothing..I usually turn off the music but not this time, I left it on, even when I was away and had the game running I let the music play..
I have a high level stress job and when I play this at the end of the day, it relaxes me enough that I can sleep.

Relaxing "Match Cards" Game
I have played this game many times. It is a very relaxing game due to the beautiful music and backgrounds.

I wasn't sure about it at first. I was wanting a solitaire game, not mahjong. But it's just so relaxing and beautiful that it won me over. It'll be the perfect thing when you just want to de-stress, relax and not have to use your brain :-)
If you leave and come back, you'll have to restart the hand you're playing, but it'll save where you are along your 'journey'. I don't know what went wrong for the other poster, but you do have the bonus games in the purchased version.

Loved the waterfall sounds and visuals
Plus = This is an easy-to-play solitaire game, where you travel around America visiting different waterfall sites. The game levels are varied, and the game goes from very easy to very hard as you advance around the USA. I particularly liked the music, the waterfall and nature sounds are very soothing, and the visuals are so pretty with the falling water, so I often play a few rounds at night before I go to to bed, the game helps me to relax. The cards are large and easy to see. I particularly enjoyed the info about the different waterfall locales.
Minus = Some levels are very challenging, and you will have to replay and replay if you want to advance to the last locales

A decent solitaire game
This game is very similar to Heartwild Solitaire. You match the cards as you would match tiles in mahjongg. The music is relaxing, the storyline is appropriate, and you have a clear sense of where you are in the game at all times.
Played 33 minutes of the trial before writing this, and had I not found Heartwild first, I'd have probably bought this one instead. Worth a look for a relaxing experience.

Simple and Unpretentious
This is a game for when your brain has had enough of tackling puzzles and searching for hidden objects. It's a game to "chillax" to. Yes, I know all you do is match cards of the same value. So it's not exactly mindbending, but that's its' value in today's stressed world. Ace to Ace, two to two and so on, take it as it is, a simple pleasant relaxing cardgame. The backdrops with the moving waterfalls are beautiful and probably the closest I shall get to visiting America.
The bonuses are, that the card backs and music changes at each waterfall; so you don't hear the same tunes all the way through like in so many other similar games. Each waterfall area comprises of six levels. You match up the gold cards to win the level. I think the gold cards will increase as the game goes on. At the moment its two sets to match up of a leaf and a fern. The sixth level is a bonus one, where you match Ace to King in order, and this one is timed. You are given four minutes in which to complete this. There are card helpers, undo and shuffle, just match up the card with it on with another of the same value to get it. and a joker which will match with any other card.
If you want to read the "bon mot" at the end of each game, just wait a moment or two before pressing the continue button. I missed them the first time, when I was doing the free hour given. Each game only takes a couple of moments to load, so you're not looking at the load screen for that long, its no big deal, just make it part of this game. No worries Little Fishies.

I bought it and not I'm not sure why!
I dunno...I kinda got suckered into this one. I played the demo all the way thru and bought the full game. I kinda wished I hadn't. It's really the same all the way thru..the levels have different music (well--there are 3 or 4 reels of "music" that keep repeating themselves) The one with the flutes is really annoying because it's the only one that is obviously a loop that jerkily starts over mid way. The others aren't so obvious. I'll probably play it thru the 15 levels and only come back to it once in a while. I like it but it is rather boring. If you use all your bonuses and there are no more matches, you're forced to start the level over again.

Great Audio and Visual, but...
Loved the free trial, so I purchsed this game. Was disappointed that the "bonus games" are not included when you buy it. It could be such a GREAT game, but it also won't save your levels, so unless you play the whole game through at one time, you keep starting over and it gets boring.

This is not Solitaire, it's a Mahjong game with playing cards. The music is Oriental and repetitious.Thankfully you can Mute it. There are 15 Waterfall locations, and you play 5 mahjong boards each plus a Bonus game to advance to the next location. The Bonus is pairing the cards in numerical order Ace thru King. They flash Mottos like a fortune cookie after each board completed, but don't give you time to read them.
If all you want is an easy, relaxing game, this may suit you. I'll give it a pass.
