Hey. How’s it going?
It’s been a while since we’ve had really big news… and now we have two things that are pretty darned interesting. The first thing? We’re about to release the biggest updates we’ve had yet to Word Ace, Card Ace: Blackjack, and Card Ace: Hold ‘Em.
The biggest thing? The brand-new People Grid.
One of the things that people have loved about the Ace games is the ability to play with their friends – not just friends from “real life”, but friendships that have formed from playing Word Ace or Card Ace together for months and months. So now, when you fire up the game, you can instantly find your friends by just looking for familiar faces. The rest of the Grid is full of Featured Players – players that have done something interesting – so you can jump into a game with someone who’s giving away tons of gifts, racking up popularity, or chatting up a storm.
The simple fact is that this is a game you want to play with people. Now every aspect of the interface works toward that goal. Wanna jump into a game based on blind size? Not a problem. All that’s still there, as well.
We’ve also got a brand new feature for Card Ace: Hold ‘Em – Sit & Go tournaments! Ante up for a Sit & Go, and if you can be the last player standing, you win a huge stack of chips. It’s a whole new way to play – winning is based on your skill at Hold ‘Em – you can’t buy back into these games.
But the big surprise? Card Ace: Casino is all three of our apps in one. Word Ace, Blackjack, and Hold ‘Em, all in a single app. Jump into a game of Blackjack, and when your friend invites you to a game of Word Ace, join their game with a single click. All your awards, all your friends in one place.
Card Ace: Casino will be launching soon on iOS, with Retina Display support for the iPhone 4.
The craziest thing of all? That’s not all we’ve been up to.
