Disappointed customer

Androids are programmed with unfair advantage. Human players can only win if spending lots of money to buy wilds, skips, chests

Hope you like paying through the nose to play, because that's the only concern of the creator of this app

The app is very similar to the actual game, but sadly whoever created the app does not care in customer enjoyment of the game. The focus is on making money. The cost of energy, wild cards, and gems is totally unrealistic. To earn, without paying these unrealistic amounts is quite difficult, and the program has been created by someone who obviously gets off on making it as difficult as possible to win.

Is It Any Good?

While fans of rummy and Uno will have fun with this matching game, it won't win over people who don't enjoy traditional card games. Phase 10: World Tour has you trying to get rid of all the cards you've been dealt. To do this, you have to place them in piles where they meet certain conditions, such as three of the same color, four in a row, and so on. You also get to toss a card when you finish a pile, or have to take one when you have no other choice, while special cards work as wild cards or block your opponent from taking their turn.

While card sharks may appreciate this game, people who don't like card games will find it overly complicated and even a little redundant. The same goes for people into such faster and more action-oriented card battle games as Hearthstone and Magic the Gathering. Some more mellow card players might also get frustrated with how this can be as annoyingly exact as a relative or friend you won't play cards with anymore because they only count your six in a row if the 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 cards are placed in the correct order. Still, if you're someone who likes playing rummy, Uno, or similar card games, and are OK with sticklers for rules, Phase 10: World Tour should provide a nice distraction when you can't find anyone to play against.
