Solitaire Dreams 2.0 - No rush. No pressure.

Posted on Nov 15, 2019

One of the complaints we’ve been hearing from you much too often is that the game rewards fast playing and that it’s often stressful having to keep up the pace. Knowing about this was stressing us in turn but it wasn’t an easy thing to redesign. We kept working on ideas though and finally we came up with a solution.

With Solitaire Dreams version 2.0 we’re introducing new rules. There’s no more time pressure and we’ve removed the score entirely. Stars are now awarded based solely on the number of cards left on the table. 1 star for 10 cards or less. 2 stars for 5 cards. And a clear table gives you 3 stars. Easy!

We’re also introducing boosters. Pinwheel, Scissors and the good old Joker. You can take them with you on a level as an extra help to win more stars.

You’ll also notice new special bonuses that happen while playing. Like Sequences. Matching pairs of cards in sequence (i.e. 5+5, 6+6, 7+7, etc) rewards you with an extra Joker. Or Perfect Matches. Pairing cards of the same suit (i.e. Queen of Hearts with another Queen of Hearts) removes an extra pair of cards from the table.

Overall, this was a huge change to the game (hence the bump to version 2.0!) and we’re a little bit scared how this is going to be received. So, don’t hesitate to let us know :)

For the next version we plan to work on tweaking and improving the difficulty and balance. Also, now that the foundation is laid out we have some cool ideas about new things we can do to the core of the game. But that’s a story for a future update.

Meanwhile, enjoy the new calm. There’s no rush.

As always, you can get the game here:
