Spades and Hearts Card Game Arrives on Apple Arcade

Mobile Games

Apple welcomes two new games in its subscription gaming platform this week. Kicking off 2022, Apple Arcade announces the inclusion of Spades: Card Game+ and Hearts: Card Game+ in its platform. These classic card games are free to download on iPhone and iPad as of this writing.

Players will find both Spades: Card Game+ and Hearts: Card Game+ with a sense of familiarity in terms of gameplay. However, players are also up for a surprise or two as an intuitive artificial intelligence (AI) springs challenges that aren’t part of the classic gameplay.

Apple Arcade, in partnership with MobilityWare, brings Spades Card Game+ into the gaming platform with the objective to challenge players using its AI. This version of the classic card game brings new graphics and new goals to reach per round. This is something that players can expect, considering MobilityWare is regarded as the top card game developer in the market today. Additionally, both Apple Arcade and MobilityWare promise only a good time with this card game on your iOS device.

Hearts: Card Game+

Perhaps the biggest catch in Hearts Card Game+ is the ability of MobilityWare’s AI to adapt to players’ playing styles to give more crunch in the game. However, this offers an opportunity for players to complete outsmart a bot and develop new strategies as the game progresses. What we like about Hearts Card Game is its availability for play even when offline; the rest of the classic gameplay is also in full play but, as always, players could expect a surprise or two.
