Video Game Review: Regency Solitaire

by Aleen @ Lampshade Reader

LSR Gamer Review Graphic

Regency Solitaire called out to me in so many ways. The Historical Romance reader in me loved this little game. It carries a story and presents the aspects of solitaire in a unique way: through storytelling.

 

It’s by no means a deeply cerebral story, however one does get invested to help the heroine Bella restore her family’s good name and fortune.

There are a total of 20 chapters. Each with their own goals. Try and get 100%!

The player helps Bella restore her ballroom by buying certain perks and decorations. Each item helps make the levels easier and honestly, it’s just more fun to have a mission.

You earn gold as you progress and thus will help you purchase the necessary items.

It’s definitely not your usual desktop solitaire either. There are obstacles as one progresses in the chapters and there are also chapter goals that you must complete. That is, if you’re a perfectionist like I am. You could totally get stuck if you make the wrong move. Some cards have locks that you have to find the keys to, others have bows you have to cut. It all makes from some challenging and strategic game play. However, to help you along the way, wildcards and jokers help a lot if you find yourself with just one or two cards on the board and no more cards in your deck.

There are quite a few perks you can get as you play like Cupid’s Bow that will help you knock down some cards as well.

The story is quite reminiscent of Regency romance plots, but it’s all in good fun. I wouldn’t say the art is phenomenal, but it’s pleasant to look at. While playing, classical music plays in the background. I do have to say there are satisfying sound effects as well.

Replay Value

Yes, I would totally play this again. In fact I already have many times. You can skip the story after your first run-through and I’ve even played on hard for the whole game. One does get better with practice, right? If you want to unlock her ballroom again just start as a new player, it’s that easy.

This looks like fun. IK am seeing more interactive storybook apps. Finally, video games I can get into!

Solitaire on its own is fun tbh, so this looks especially fun with the extra challenges and the story aspect! Especially for historical romance lovers!

Interesting. I don’t play games but some of them do look fun.
