Ace

Ace is a simple but engaging solitaire puzzle game.

Swipe (Up, Down, Left and Right) to move the cards one space around the game board. When two cards of the same suit meet, and the moving card is of a higher value than the stationary card, the higher value card will take the lower value cards place (which is then added back into the deck).

New cards are added with each Swipe, keep playing until the board is full, and there are no more moves available.

Ace uses a standard deck of cards, where Ace is high and low (11 and 1).

Ace > King > Queen > Jack > 10 > 9 > 8 > 7 > 6 > 5 > 4 > 3 > 2 > Ace


Concept/Design

The idea was to make a card game, that could in theory be played forever (until luck or skill ran out). I also wanted it to be playable with a physical deck of cards (but didn’t necessarily have to be practical, to be played with a physical deck).

 

The Ace cards are used as special cards, adding an extra layer of skill with a risk reward system. The Ace card can be used to reset a cell back to 1 (allowing any card to take it’s place), but doing so sacrifices the highest value on the game board.
