InXile entertainment today confirmed that their latest game, Solitaire + Friends, is now available for free in the iTunes store. Solitaire + Friends is the first solitaire game for iOS that has a social gaming element which allows you to challenge your friends. After winning a game on your own, you send the same deck to a friend to see if they can beat both the deck and your high score.
InXile President, Matt Findley, had this to say: “We have had tremendous achievements in experimenting with small projects for iOS, both in sales and critical success. Our average rating across all our titles exceeds 4 out of 5 stars, and currently Solitaire + Friends is following suit.”
“With the huge success of push-notification social games, like “Words with Friends”, “Draw Something” and “Dice with Buddies,” we thought it was time to bring these social features to one of the most popular game categories on the app store: Solitaire,” said Matt Findley. InXile has been committed to bringing fun casual games to iOS for years, and Solitaire + Friends is our next step towards the goal of a truly social casual gaming experience.
Also enjoyable as a single-player game, Solitaire + Friends stands apart with its stylized graphics and polished interface—including a handy swipe gesture for easily sending cards to their piles. Infusing the social element of sharing and competing with friends or random opponents through Game Center, Facebook or email, Solitaire + Friends adds a whole new dimension of fun to a classic game.
