The latest game on Apple Arcade, Apple’s US$4.99/month or $49.99/year game streaming service that has over 130 games, is Solitaire Stories. It’s available for the iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac. (Apple Arcade is also available as part of the Apple One bundle.)
Here’s how Solitaire Stories is described: Solitaire with a story? Weird. Solitaire Stories are a progressive journey through increasingly difficult levels. Each story is a completely new theme with it’s own unique deck design, gameplay environment, level map, soundtrack, and storyline! Whether you’re looking to get better at Solitaire and work through new challenges, or if you’re an experienced player looking for increasing difficulty, this mode is for you! New stories / decks are added monthly.
Purists, do not fear. If you’re a Solitaire Ace and just want to sneak in a quick game of classic Klondike with no stories, progressive challenges, or drama, you’re in luck! Quick Play is the perfect way to get your Solitaire fix between meetings, in the bathroom, under the kitchen table during dinner, or right before bed when you need a quick game break! Just choose your favorite deck and play.
Daily Challenges are a way to accomplish new tasks every day and earn gold, which helps you unlock new stories / decks. There’s always something new!
Every day, once a day, you have the chance to play a hand of Solitaire against ALL Solitaire Stories players around the world. Everyone gets the same deal, and winner takes all. Here’s the kicker, you only get one chance to play it each day…so don’t screw up. How will you rank against all other players globally?
When you log in with GameCenter, your Solitaire skills are publicly ranked with players from around the globe. Flaunt your bragging rights to your friends and find out how you stack up against the competition. Are you the Solitaire King (or Queen) of the world?
Solitaire Stories is a single-player player game for ages 13 and up. It offers game controller support.
