Takes a solid solitaire game and adds a story mode, power-ups, virtual pets, all skippable if you want. Has decent music and great ambient sounds. Great graphics. Very snappy game play, you can really make the cards fly. Solid.
By all rights I should hate this... Fairies, virtual pets, ugly graphics, twee as twee can bee (misspelling of be on purpose to emphasize the twee) but the game mechanic is so damn good it doesn't matter. CURSE YOU FOR MAKING ME LIKE THISSSS!!!
Faerie Solitaire is a very solid game. It contains a lot of value for a low price and proves that solitaires don't have to be boring. The game has some minor bugs as well as pets which are not important at all. Still, it's very good and astonishing in simplicity game.
A very good casual game with relaxing ambient sounds, also kind of addicting because of items collection and a sense of progression and challenge.
The story isn't good, but the game doesn't need it. The eggs and pets are useless, just a collection completely apart from the game, and if you're an achievement hunter you'll probably being mad to collect the pets related ones, because it's very hard and totally randomly. There is a problem with the widescreen resolutions, you have to play it at 800x600 windowed or have graphic quality losses.
But it still very enjoyable.
Entertaining game. Easy way to burn some time. Story mode, challenges, quick play all included. Power ups are available to make the game easier. Most achievements are simple to earn for the achievement hunter. There are pets that can be collected while playing. Depending on your luck may take a ton of hours to collect them all for 100% completion.
If you are looking for a casual game that doesnt require a lot of PC power something to get your time by and something that is actually quite simple and can be as fun as a casual game such as regular solitaire then this is the game for you because it adds more than regular solitaire a unique way to play the game along with a storyline to boot along with a well fantasy like OST and overall visual design.
If you look carefully, nothing revolutionary in this solitaire! Pets are absolutely useless except to artificially add lifetime to the game. They don't affect the gameplay. The "Spares" system show how an addition may seem clever at first, but easily converts into absurdity (see my video: ****/xEOlM-NYNOk).
