I don't actually remember how I got this game. I know I didn't pay $10 for it; in fact, I'm pretty sure I got it for free. In any case, It's fairly entertaining.
It's easy to learn how to play Faerie Solitaire
, which makes this game great for kids. I could see parents using this game to teach young children the basics of solitaire games before the child is ready for more challenging card games. There are also harder settings for more advanced players.
The story mode is okay but could be described as mostly background fluff. Your enjoyment will suffer only slightly if you decide not to pay attention. Again, it's something that would probably hold the attention of children pretty well. Overall, the story art, voice acting, and writing are reasonable for an indie game and you can tell the development team put a solid amount of effort into Faerie Solitaire
This game has a serious lack of options and customizability. There aren't graphics options for this game, there is graphics option. A single switch labelled "high" and "low." So if you're hoping to change the game's resolution (like I was) or even turn off the card animations, you're out of luck. I also would have liked to see an option to change what the cards look like. Personally, I prefer how cards normally look as opposed to the cartoon-ish design the developers decided on.
I'd recommend it to my young nieces and nephews, as well as my mother.
