Description

Also known as Seven Up, All Fours is an addictive point-trick card game where players compete for points in several rounds, tallying up for the overall championship.

When the dealer turns up the Trump suite in each round, you must develop your strategy to vie for Game points, or fish out and hang your opponent's Jack. Trump cards are the key. You can also accumulate points for playing High Trump, Low Trump, and turning up key cards as the dealer.

You can play against 3 other computer players in Single mode or battle an opponent in the Multi Player mode via Bonjour.

This game seems to have originated in the UK, where it is still very popular in pubs. The 4 player-team version has also become the unofficial national card game of Trinidad and Tobago.

5/5 stars

High, low, game, hang jack, to go!

:
I grew up playing All-Fours as a proud Trini, and I was so happy just to find this application but I was so pleased to see how very well it was created. If only there was a way to enjoy the loud fun that comes with the crazy signals my family uses when we play as partners against each other in person. The application is great to help me when I'm homesick until I can get back home to Trinidad for the real thing.

As a Trinidadian I've gotta say the developer is correct when they say it's like our national game. The game seems accurate after playing the single player mode. I couldn't get anyone to connect on the Multiplayer mode so haven't been able to test that yet. I hope you can play against/with people all over the world. If so I'll change the rating to 5

4/5 stars

Fun app, great card game, needs a bit more polish

:
A couple items would make this 5 stars, and hopefully a patch to include them might be released?

* Clearer, cleaner motion for card selection from hand to play. I find myself at times accidentally sending the wrong card into play from my hand because of the angled arrangement of the cards and no clear indication of the correct way to move them into play. Either provide a visual for the player to trace their finger over to ensure the right card goes into play, or create a clearer way to select a specific card and send it into play without the risk of sending the wrong card as is sometimes a problem especially for cards toward the edges of your hand of cards.

* A summary screen after each round that shows which player(s) had High, Low, Jack, and Game for that round, so that it is more clear how the scores are being added up.

* An end-of-game summary screen that shows the total Highs, Lows, Jacks, and Games for each player and how their score added up.

The app is overall very good, it just moves through everything a bit too quickly without enough data/feedback to the players who want to fully grasp who won what parts of the scoring and how the scores added up.
It would also be helpful to have a better motion for moving a card from hand to play to ensure against accidentally playing the wrong card, which can completely ruin a round for the player.
