5.0 out of 5 stars stellar card game October 8, 2012
I got this as an Amazon App Store Free App of the Day and am very happy with it. Yes there are other spades game out there, but this one was built exceedingly well, with lots of little touches. For example, the sound effect when "breaking spades" is a nice touch that almost subliminally creates a feel for what "breaking spades" is like.

Nice sound effects, effective tutorial, hint button--this is a great card app! I even have my 9-year-old loving it.

1.0 out of 5 stars 30 day DRM clock December 22, 2012
By twidget
Verified Purchase
Interesting app. 1 star because of the 30 DRM clock. If you don't get on the internet at least once every 30 days, the app stops working. Not good when you're deployed and CAN'T get on the internet every 30 days.

3.0 out of 5 stars Resolution issues, developer not updating on Amazon June 14, 2013
Verified Purchase
First off, it's a decent game of Spades with great graphics. Excellent time waster. But...

The Amazon version is two versions behind the free version on Google Play (1.0.14 vs. 1.0.16). I don't ordinarily care what version I'm running as long as it works well, but this older version doesn't properly support the screen resolution of my two devices, HTC One and Asus TF700. It only uses approximately 65% of the screen, making it difficult to see what suit has been led, etc. The two latest updates on Google Play don't have this issue.

I contacted Concrete Software on May 30th and got a very quick response, essentially saying they'll look into it. Good customer service. But since that time, no update on Amazon, BUT the Google Play version was updated again on June 7th.

I suppose Amazon may have an unusually complicated update process, but I doubt it. Feels like they've just abandoned Amazon's app store.

I'm posting screenshots of both versions for comparison purposes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay to Kill Time, but not Challenging June 21, 2013
Verified Purchase
The app works. I can say that... For "serious" or experienced Spades players, you will be horrified at the poor quality of play. For example, nil bids (by the computer) or nil coverage (if YOU go nil) are almost laughable. Also, there is no sense whatsoever of bag management. Not for use in terms of improving your game against Spades players with any skill.

I DO play the game simply for entertainment... sometimes to see how many blind nils I can make in a row, or to see if I can pull off a regular nil with a ridiculous hand... but the folks who designed and programmed this app are NOT experienced Spades players.... or are not ale to program the nuances of serious Spades play.

I haven't found any GOOD spades games out there.

As a side note, the book "How Not To Lose At Spades" (two editions) are available from Amazon, and are fantastic for improving your Spades game.

1.0 out of 5 stars unplayable on droid turbo with 4.4.4 November 11, 2014
Verified Purchase
This was my favorite short game to play but it is no longer usable on my new Droid Turbo with Android 4.4.4 - the graphics are corrupted for key information. Examples:

Help screen shows the box, but the help information is all strange green squiggles
In the game, the buttons for blind nil vs bid are unreadable
Bidding - numeric value of bid is unreadable. Interestingly, the word "hint" is readable
Names of the other players are unreadable
Scoring - total score for either team along with bag count are unreadable.

At this point the game is unplayable.

Also, a long-time quibble independent of device - even when the sound is turned off in the game, it still makes a fairly annoying sound when starting up (like something falling and then hitting). This is very annoying and should be turned off when sound is off in the game.

Starting to learn to play. At one point used all my cards, then a dialogue box comes up but before I can read it the game is gone. FC is my guess. Happens every time too. ASUS Transformer.
