Description

Ultimate Solitaire 1000 is a collection of solitaire games boasting 1000 unique games. This compilation of card games is fully featured and easy to load, customise and play. It can be run either in a window or full screen.

The first time the game is played after installation it prompts the player for their name. The player then selects their preference from the play area and card backs that are available.

All games are played by mouse. The player clicks on a card to drag and drop it into a location, or clicks on a stack to view the next card.

Features include :
  • The ability to turn on/off card animations, sounds, the recording of statistics (fastest times, number of times a game has been played, etc), and whether the undo moves feature is allowed.
  • Over forty different kinds of card back together with the facility to import more
  • Eight kinds of card face including large symbols for the visually impaired
  • Over eighty different play area images together with the facility to import more
