Solataire Spider - I like the game so far-Just got it last night. When you want to move a card to a certain place you have to move it manually. If you double click on it then it will send it to an empty space instead of the stack that is available. But that isn’t ‘a biggie’! just have to adjust and learn to manually place the card where you want it instead of letting the program place it for you.. I was missing playing Spider and had tried another one and it froze up all the time. So far this one hasn’t.
Spider Solitaire - This is a clunky excuse for a functional spider game. The screen is pinched so badly you don’t even get a full image. There are not “quick keys” to facilitate speed of play. You have to move the cursor to even access a new game and you have to click the same choices, like 1 suit, 2 suits etc. each time you play. From what I can tell there is no record of stats. The sounds are elementary and not helpful. The one possibly neat feature they have, which is to click on a card and have it automatically move, screws you up more than it helps because it moves cards to the nearest open or available location, not where it would seem logical, like on card in the same suit. Poor excuse for a spider solitaire game and I’m sorry I wasted my money on it.

Not bad, but could use improvements - Not bad! I wish the graphics were better — on my mac I can’t see the entirety of the completed suits at the top of the board. Like some of the other reviewers, I too would prefer that this version of the game had a “hint” option. Also, I don’t like that if you click on a card, it moves, even if you decide you don’t want to move it. The Office version allows you to just leave a card where it is, unless you drag it somewhere and then release the mouse.
OMG Deliver me! No, I’ll just delete this monster game myself. - Who asked for intelligent card action… it’s not here. Winning my first game played, down to the last two stacks… it was impossible to finish because the cards kept hopping from one blank space to the next, ignoring the intelligent option of lining up appropriately. In short, the worst Spider app I’ve ever played. During play, the overactive screen action is confusing. I noticed that immediately and found it annoying, but I kept going. Even here in the review box, you can’t copy and paste commentary to reorganize your comments. Overall, there is no control allowed to the player in determining where you want to send your card played, so the game refused to let me build stacks at my discretion. Eventually, tiring of trying to outwit the game, I quit with my two remaining stacks trapped in the clutches of the faulty coding. The thrill was pretty much gone by now anyway, as when the previous stacks were completed, they simply disappeared in a flash with no fanfare. And I had been so eager to hear the triumphant music at the end, when I finally made it happen. Now, I have serious doubt such a bit of joy was even programmed into this game. There are far superior games out there… don’t waste your time here.
Good solid play - This is a decent spider solitaire version. I would like the option to replay the same game if I'm unable to solve it the first go round. I'd also like to click on the card for the next logical move as opposed to dragging - many times if you click, it does not move the card to the most logical spot. If you move it there, you suffer a move count. You have to 'undo' and then drag and drop. Otherwise, the game is fun and very addictive.
spider - I find it most irritating that when I click on a stack that has a specific place to go, the cards do not automatically go to the logical location. If there are blank spots and a spot that would add to the correct sequence, the stack goes to the blank. Also, if there is an appropriate suit, such as a 6 of heart and an inappropriate suit such as a 6 of spades, the 5 of hearts will go to the 6 of spades rather than the correct location, the 6 of hearts. This adds to the number of moves thus lowering the score. I still play the game frequently, but get frustrated. I prefer spider on a PC rather than the MAC version.
addictive - I like the fact that you can play at all levels of expertise so that you don’t feel like there’s no way you’ll ever reach the “congratulations” message. However, there is a glitch at the end when you have almost won and there are one or more cards still to “click” to bring another layer of cards to play. At that point it will not release another layer of fresh cards. I tried every combination to tell the computer that there were no more cards to be played, but nothing happened.. Otherwise….
