Fun-Towers

Fun-Towers is an addictively fun card game contained in a somewhat sloppy piece of software. Despite its flaw, we find that we can't pull ourselves away.

Fun-Towers is a version of solitaire in which cards must be taken from the field and added to a stack, moving cards that are only one higher or one lower than the card on top of the stack. The game is actually really easy to play, but we'd never seen this style of solitaire before, and the instructions included with the game were awful. We figured it out with some trial and error, and then found it hard to pull ourselves away. For the most part, the game is nicely designed, with an attractive interface. The game's options are located in a drop-down menu, although it's not always obvious what they mean. Again, this is something that could have easily been solved with some better instructions. We did like that users can turn on and off the option to be alerted when there are still cards that can be played before flipping over another card in the stack; turning this option off makes the game much more challenging. We also liked that the program tracks high scores and has a variety of ways to earn extra points, lives, and time. We were concerned that during our testing the game crashed, although this only happened once. Overall we found the game to be quite enjoyable, just lacking a bit in professionalism.

Fun-Towers has a 10-use trial period. It comes as a zip file but installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
