What works

  • The main menu
  • All menu options
  • All games
  • All effects
  • Installation (provided WINE is using Win98 mode)

What does not

  • Fullscreen mode
  • Audio in general. Enabling audio, trying to open the audio window, etc all do not work.


What was not tested

The site has a demo for download, however I did not test it. I had purchased this game previously and thus installed from a full-version installer, so I do not know how the unlocking or buying of this app through the program itself would work.

I do not know if this game includes an auto-updater. If so, it was not tested.

Additional Comments

With OpenGL rendering enabled (through the game itself) this game is truly stunning with it's over-use of particle effects and beautiful environments. Runs well in software mode but there is a noticeable difference when using OpenGL. You must have WINE in Win98 mode, as WinXP would not allow the game to install for me. I highly recommend this solitaire.

I've noticed that maximizing/restoring can be buggy. Run within a WINE desktop and it will run much better :)
