hard to believe but Apple's presence in the area of games gives App store almost nil: aside from Warren Buffet’s Paper Wizard, which is more an attempt to lick the boots of a major investor than a game in itself, we have nothing from Ma in the most profitable category of your app store. Or rather, we had not.
Ma aired today a new version of Texas Hold'em, its poker game that debuted in 2006 on some versions of the iPod, and was included in the App Store right on its debut in 2008. The game was removed from there in 2011, and now still as part of the 10th anniversary celebrations. store is making its triumphant return with several news and improvements.
Apple's Texas Hold'em is back! To celebrate the App Store's 10th birthday, we brought back one of their first games, a popular classic. Originally created for the iPod and then brought to the iPhone, fans will love the new, more polished design with new characters, more challenging gameplay and stunning graphics for the new iPhones and iPod touch. Gamers will also love the fact that it is completely free for the first time.
In the updated version of the game we have ten scenarios (including Las Vegas, Paris and Macau), (much) improved graphics and smarter virtual players able to bet, bluff and tic. The new interface shows tips, statistics and player ratings on the screen and, just like before, you can enter a multiplayer mode with up to eight players via Wi-Fi.
As Apple remembers, this is also the first time the game is completely free in its previous life, it cost $ 5, but now you can download it for free from the App Store (and without internal purchases).
Have a good time! 😉
