Guess I was spoiled by Fairway Solitaire....
This game is ok but, if you like this kind of game, then you should spend your money on Fairway or Fairway Solitaire, both of which are far superior to this version.... or even Fairy Solitaire, which is also a good version. (This one might be better for younger kids though, as it is easier.)
My main gripe with Pirate Sol is that the only thing you can buy with your gold is A cannon ball (equivalent to the irons in Fairway) - just one at a time. I played many, many levels and still haven't come across anything else that can be purchased. And the game is so easy, you rarely even need them.
Second to that is that, although there are achievements earned, I have no idea what I did to earn them! I tried scrolling over them, clicking them, double clicking them.... no information whatsoever.... not even the TITLE of the achievement! You only get that when you earn it, IF you're lucky enough to notice that you did.
Also, as I stated above, it is very easy to play.... perfects are plentiful in Pirate Sol. Very little challenge here.
I do recommend this game for younger kids or those who love this form of solitaire and have plenty of money to buy all the versions available. Otherwise, spend your money on Fairway, Fairway Solitaire, or Fairy Solitaire ;)

Cartoon graphics, pirate voice over. Music fits the game. I played the trial and I'm going to buy. Not much in the line of instructions. Cute, but not half as good as "Faeries."

Don't Waste Your Money
I recently bought this game because it was on special. I should have done the demo first, because I wouldn't have wasted my 2.99. This is a REALLY boring game. Level after level is the same thing. And, really easy to get perfects. You win money, but I have yet to see what you can spend it on except cannon balls (wild cards), and you don't need to buy those cause the game gives them to you. And, speaking of the money, It gets a little irritating after awhile having to "scoop" up the money at the bottom of the screen with your cursor. One of the Achievements you can earn is finishing 20 levels. Not sure how many total levels there are, maybe 30-40, but just trying to stay with the game to finish 20 may be a real achievement for me. Soooo glad I didn't use a credit!
