[prMac.com] Dallas, Texas - Order N Development today is pleased to announce the release of Hearts Attack 1.0 for the iPhone and iPod touch. Hearts Attack allows users to play any of the common variations of the hearts card game, such as omnibus, shooting the sun, and spot hearts against a variety of zany computer opponents. Hearts Attack includes a full in-game tutorial, suggestions, and multiple level undo, allowing beginners to easily pick up the game. It provides four difficulty levels to challenge even experienced players.
The player competes against three of seven possible colorful computer opponents, each of which has their own distinct looks and personality. The personalities range from a communist kitten trying to overthrow oppressive humans to a vegetarian vampire to a pacifist pirate who sells insurance. They always have something interesting to say about how they and their opponents are playing. The computer opponents can be configured to play at trivial, easy, normal, or hard difficulty levels.
Unique to Hearts Attack is its in-depth tutorial system. The tutorial begins by giving the player a brief introduction to the rules and strategies of hearts. Throughout the game it offers suggestions for which cards to pass or play, including the rationale for choosing those cards. The suggestions are useful to beginners learning how to play, and to more advanced players looking to improve their game. The suggestions can be used apart from the tutorial.
Since players always have their favorite way of playing hearts, Hearts Attack allows flexible configuration of the rules. Players can choose how cards are passed, which player leads and with what card, how penalty and bonus cards are scored, and what is required to shoot the moon or the sun.
