Anyone give this a go yet?
I'm also interested to see how this game is.

Despite the sub-par review, I've actually quite enjoyed this.
Granted, I haven't tried out the touch screen control method yet (which the NL review said was broken), but the button controls work flawlessly from my experience.
Graphically it's a no frills affair, but that's fine by me (I wouldn't want a solitaire game to take up much space anyways, and it's no frills approach allows it to be light on the blocks), and there's still enough diversity in the unlockable decks & tables to find something for you.
For $3, it's worth a shot if you just want some solitaire on your 3DS, and don't want to fill up your system memory on DSiWare.

Well, I've unlocked everything now, so I guess I've played it enough to give my full impressions.
TBH, I have no idea how the NL reviewer came to the conclusion that the control scheme in this was borderline broken (I can only assume they got a bad copy?).
The button controls work absolutely fine, as stated in my initial post. As for the touch controlls, they're fine too. There are two ways you can do touch controls, by tapping & by dragging. By tapping, you simply tap a card to highlight it, and then tap where you want to put it (this worked just as well as button controls). Of course, you can drag the cards as well, and as long as you're not in a rush, this works fine as well. When dragging a stack of cards however, be sure to drag it a little to the left or right before moving down, otherwise it thinks you're trying to cycle through the cards in the stack. That is a minor issue, however, and a far cry from broken.
This isn't a must purchase for most, though. Though it's a completely competent Solitaire game, there's so much competition (both on the system & in general), that it really doesn't stand out much from the competition. If you don't have a Solitaire game on your 3DS yet, or if you REALLY want a Family series, BlazBlue, Battle Fantasia, or Dreamland it's worth a look though.
