Summary of major new engine work completed in this new version:

4 years after the original release of Spades Free, we are happy to announce our single greatest improvement in play quality, after a prolonged period devoted just to Spades. This has always been a collaborative project shared with York University and has combined the best of AI research with game industry engineering to achieve the best result so far. In this last period particular attention was paid to bidding and the Nil game, but we also made substantial progress in the Joker variants and efficiency of the analysis. We believe that the end product was worth it. Discover the updated play for yourself!

This free version is supported by 3rd party ads. Ads may use internet connectivity, and therefore subsequent data charges may apply. The photos/media/files permission is required to allow the game to save game data to external storage, and is sometimes used to cache ads.

Updating again the game is now going to black screen. I go out of it and still blank when I open again I'm updating my review. It seems better but freezes still. I have to restart my phone to play. I'll check for updates... This game is no longer fair or fun. Was my favorite game for a long time. Changes and updates have made it too frustrating to play. Also, certain ads that show at the bottom of the screen cause the cards to hesitate and game will freeze. It really isn't fun to play anymore.

It's a fun game to play, I love playing spades. However, it often seems like your partner isn't playing WITH you. The partners like to trump a trick you've already won; that hurts our scouring. I wish there was a way to correct this issue. And please add more options for the design choices for the cards, some of the options can be a little difficult to read. And while there are some beautiful options for the backgrounds it would helpful if there were some lighter colours choices so it's easier to read the cards as well as easier on the eyes. Thanks for the fun & relaxation this game provides.

The only spades game that doesn't have any ads after every trick. Play is done in clockwise order. You're able to chose the difficulty level of your opponents and your partner. And it's free! But makes me want to spend money on it.. After dealing with the all of the other failures! This is the only one worth any of my time. Good work on this game.
