Poker Dice Solitaire Future Review
Release Date: July 3, 2014 | Price: $1.99
Genre: Tabletop | Platform: Wii U eShop
Publisher and Developer: RCMADIAX
Poker Dice Solitaire Future is the first game in RCMADIAX’s “Tabletop Gallery” series, of which two more will be released this summer. Much like Blok Drop U – which has since received an excellent update – Poker Dice Solitaire Future was developed using Construct 2 software. Video game developers can use Construct 2 to create a myriad of truly unique games, though Poker Dice Solitaire Future opts for a much simpler approach.
Of course, your main objective is to create the best hands to gain the highest score possible. However, the number of winning hands you can keep are limited to four. If you create a hand that doesn’t match an available hand, you will lose a chip, which applies a negative value to your overall score. This also takes away one potential chip from that hand. Once all potential hands have been used, the game will end and your final score will be tallied, which may include bonus points for getting one of each hand.
Poker Dice Solitaire Future features a nice presentation that sports clean, colorful, futuristic graphics, as well as a great user interface. Also, while the game only has one music track, it’s relaxing and quite catchy, which most certainly fits the Poker Dice Solitaire Future style created by RCMADIAX.
Overall, Poker Dice Solitaire Future does exactly what it sets out to do, and does it remarkably well. However, Poker Dice Solitaire Future doesn’t provide gamers with challenging gameplay, or any incentive to keep coming back. As a single title, Poker Dice Solitaire Future isn’t an attractive purchase, even at its $1.99 price point. That being said, those that really enjoy tabletop games might still want to give Poker Dice Solitaire Future a look. I’d normally consider Poker Dice Solitaire Future an average game, but its fantastic presentation is hard to ignore.
6/10 – Above Average
