implementation of the classical solitaire game
is an implementation of the classical
Klondike solitaire game,
having new graphic, animation, card design and sounds. The goal is the
same, you have to build up the four suit stacks in ascending order (one
for each color), using all the cards in the deck. You win the game when
all stacks are completed, and the score you get is based on the card
movements and the playing time. This game release has many features,
from hints and auto-play to statistics and score posting.

computer for the file where it is stored. The buy page can be open from

In order do enjoy
the animation, we recommend a fast graphic card (1024x768
resolution at least, 24 bits color deep) and a minimum 2Ghz processor.
You may also play this game on slower computers, if the animation, shadows
and 'No more moves' options are
disabled (Settings menu). It works with any Windows release, from XP to
8, either 32 or 64-bit version.

When the "auto-play"
option is ON, the playable cards are automatically moved to the upper
stacks, and the face down cards are turned over. But notice that these
moves are not always the best ones, so we recommend to disable the
auto-play option if you are not a beginner.
During a game, if there
are not any useful moves, the message "No more moves" will
appear, when is enabled; the game can be replayed, making other moves.
A small button appears when
the mouse is over the bottom-right corner; it allows you to resize the
game window, but not when the full screen mode is active.
