"This latest update is by far our greatest and most exciting ever!" commented Michael Ware of Headsoft. "Users can look forward to hour after hour of challenging fun and thrilling amusement. We've totally re-invented solitaire for a whole new generation. Quite frankly, Windoze Solitaire by Headsoft is how solitaire is meant to be played!"
Ben Baker CEO of Headsoft added "We looked at the most successful solitaire games on the App Store because we wanted to design and develop the best iOS solitaire game for end users. To do this, we designed and built a custom OpenGL rendering engine which renders graphics in real 3D, adding shadows and perspective with the best performance possible. We've also added full customization allowing users to place photos in the game, either as backgrounds or directly on the cards."
He then concluded by saying "We're really proud of the options we've included and we believe it's the most customisable solitaire game around. With multiple card movement options, the game play is tweaked to precision and the animation is silky smooth. I challenge anyone to find a better solitaire game that exceeds it in game play, features or value for money"
