Description

Hoyle South Beach Solitaire is a collection of Solitaire games with an art deco, Miami feel to them. The games can be played individually or as a story. In the story mode the player progresses through the game by completing a game of solitaire at each level. Completed games earn points and these translate into dollars which the player can use to buy and equip a mansion among other things. The games become progressively more difficult as the game progresses.

Fast game play is rewarded by bonus points, hint options and wild cards which the player can use to help them if they get stuck. Additionally some of the later levels have an associated point count which is usually reached just before the level is complete so if the player gets stuck with just a couple of cards remaining they can take that as a win. In Quick Play mode the player starts with half a dozen games available but all fifty five games become available as they progress through the story mode. The games are played entirely with the mouse.
