Smart-Tap™

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Solitaire Plus makes game play easier and faster by scanning the game window for a valid position for the card (or a pile of cards) that are tapped or dragged, and then automatically moving the card. This makes game play fast with less repetitive movements.

 

Typically, most moves can be accomplished by simply tapping or nudging a card and the smart-tap will make the move automatically.

 

The smart-tap feature works as follows:

 

If a valid position is available in a tableau pile, the card (or pile of cards) will be moved to the appropriate tableau pile.

 

Valid moves to occupied tableau piles will be preferred over empty tableau positions. This is especially useful for games similar to Forty Thieves which may require several reorderings of tableau piles in the latter stages of a game.

 

If more than one valid move in the tableau is available, smart-tap will select the first available position from left to right in the game window. Available moves to the tableau piles are always preferred over moves to the foundations with the exception of foundation base cards.

 

If a valid position is not available in the tableau, a single card when tapped or dragged will be moved to a foundation if possible.

 

If more than one valid move is available, a specific move may be selected by dragging the card (or pile of cards) directly over the desired target. Your finger must penetrate the bounds of the target pile before releasing in order to select a specific pile.
