The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Clickgamer Solitaire HD is very easy to play -- especially if you're already familiar with the rules of Klondike solitaire. Otherwise, the Help section walks you through the rules and tips. It's sometimes easy to accidentally tap on ads, depending on the orientation of your iPad and the length of you card columns.


Small ads appear at the bottom of the screen during the game. Tapping the "stop ads" button will offer you the option to buy the app and remove the ads. There is also an option to join Crystal, an online gaming portal owned by Chillingo (of Angry Birds fame), for those who want to compare scores. There are small ads for Crystal-supported games within this part of the app. This gives you the option to download the apps from iTunes, too.

Is it any good?

Just because a game is free doesn't mean it's worth your time. Fortunately, that's not the case with CLICKGAMER SOLITAIRE HD, a versatile "Klondike" game for iPad. You know the drill: You're dealt seven columns of cards and you must place them in descending order, alternating between black and red cards. The goal is to get rid of all the cards by making four piles, one for each suit. Simply use your fingertips to move cards around the board, plus there are shortcut commands such as dragging a finger to the left to undo a move.

Clickgamer Solitaire HD lets you tweak the rules, such as how many face-down cards are flipped from the deck (one, two, or three). The game also lets you choose from multiple themes (such as Pirate), card backs (even your own photos), and background images. The game has smooth animation and sound effects, and you listen to your own music while playing. Games are scored based on skill level ("Vegas" rules), plus the game has Crystal integration to compare scores with online players. Fans of Klondike will love Clickgamer Solitaire HD, a free game that's better than many paid versions. And if the ads bother you, a $.99 in-app purchase will remove them.
