Fairway Solitaire Blast for iOS aims to reboot the classic game of solitaire to deliver something wholly original and entertaining. Clear the board of all the cards in sequential order, with a twist. This one requires skill, logic, and a strong desire to just be left alone and play.

Fairway Solitaire Blast presents in landscape mode to deliver a high-impact solitaire experience with a twist. Similar to solitaire, your objective here is to clear the board of playing cards in sequential order. However, that's where the similarities end. Cards are arranged in the center of the screen, and as each level progresses, they appear in various patterns. Some cards can be locked behind others, and strewn about in different configurations. Below that, is the remaining deck of cards with one drawn and facing upward. Your mission, is to tap the cards above in sequential order, matching the one visible card below. Matched cards are dropped below and become the new card to match; so if you draw a 5, your next match can be a 4 or a 6. Matches can go upwards or downwards in value at any time, so you can switch directions as often as the cards permit. If you get stuck, just draw another card from the deck and try to get things rolling again.

The controls employ screen taps and functioned well. The graphics and animation are excellent, featuring some cool visual triggers and energetic renders that are pleasing to the eye. This one uses a golf theme, so the references stick close to that format. The sounds are entertaining and added some nice punctuation to the play.

Fairway Solitaire Blast is energetic, fun, and sure to twist your brain with utter simplicity and classic gaming roots. I really liked this one a lot.
