Grey Alien Games
Regency Solitaire is a one-up one-down type of solitaire, so it is definitely very easy to get going. As the game progresses, more power-ups and obstacles are introduced which could offer some much-appreciated challenges to some of the more hardcore players. For beginners, Regency Solitaire is a solidly-made solitaire game, and you can always replay the chapter to get a higher or a perfect score as many times as you want. When finished a chapter, you can also buy some new decorations for your wedding ballroom using the coins earned from the levels.
We rarely play a PC solitaire game since most of the solitaire titles bring nothing out of the ordinary to the genre. On one hand, Regency Solitaire is definitely nothing revolutionary. On the other hand, the game at least featured a pretty strong and consistent storyline that runs throughout the whole game.
As you play each chapter, you will be welcomed with a set of interesting story-related dialogs as well as a new background scene. Many of the scenes resemble England’s famous historical sites, all portrayed pretty accurately through the game’s cartoonish, but delightful artwork. We also found the graphics in Regency Solitaire to be very pleasant; lively and colorful, while not being too childish or too ornate. In addition, the soundtracks are calm and relaxing, while the sound effects are not distracting.
Regency Solitaire included 2 difficulty selection , a custom cursor choice and certainly an excellent replay value. However, the game does not feature the much-needed widescreen selection, which makes the game looks a little out-dated with two huge black bars on the sides.
