XI-ART modernizes the classic 1989 card game of TriPeaks Solitaire with their free iOS, Android, and Amazon app, TriPeaks Solitaire Challenge. Tri Peaks (also known as Tri Towers, Three Peaks, or Triple Peaks) is a solitaire card game that uses one deck of cards, in which players attempt to clear three peaks made up of cards via a chain of descending and ascending cards (i.e. A→2→3→4→5 or K→Q→J→Q→K→A→2). XI-ART’s version of the game allows players to compete in their own Facebook social circles, as well as on a global scale. Facebook and World challenges add a good amount of variety to the game and help keep it interesting. Beyond the sense of competition, there are also achievements to obtain, levels to master, and more. Achievements for playing a certain number of rounds, doing so in record time, or having series of good runs give players something to strive for. Each achievement provides players with a reward (usually a type of spendable coin—coins can be spent to undo and correct a mistake made in haste, as well as on power-ups). Levels illustrate a players mastery of the game, serving as a sort of badge of accomplishment, and are a fun little addition to the game. The user interface and graphics are professional and pleasant to look at and this is key as many players are sure to spend hours playing the classic and ever-enjoyable game. The leveling system, power-ups, and achievements add some novelty to the game, but over all, it remains just a remake of a classic game and therefore the originality score obviously takes a hit. Other than this, TriPeaks Solitaire Challenge offers players a beautiful, easy to use, and free way to play their favorite card game. It’s a solid choice for playing a beloved game of TriPeaks Solitaire.
