Based on the popular children fairy tale of Alice in the Wonderland, Neverland Solitaire brings us to this magical and fantastical world of Neverland where playing solitaire is a favorite pastime. Clear the cards off the board by matching two cards of the same rank regardless the suit as you race against the clock. Match cards consecutively to fill up the Joker meter and get Joker cards! Have fun playing solitaire with Alice in Neverland Solitaire today!
The game starts off with a very detailed tutorial that teaches you how to play the pairs-type of solitaire. If you’re new to the game, you should find the tutorial very useful, but if you’re a Solitaire veteran, well, what are we waiting for then? Let’s start playing!
Basically, what you need to do in Neverland Solitaire is to remove all the cards on the playing field to the foundation. In order to move the cards to the foundation, you have to select 2 cards of the same rank regardless of suit (Suit refers to whether cards are Hearts, Spaces, Clubs or Diamonds). It’s similar to the game, Pairs, where you match up 2 cards of the same pattern together.
Interestingly, cards that are seemingly blocked but are faced up can be used for matching. Only those cards that are faced down are inaccessible to matching. If there aren’t any more pairs on the playing field, you will have to click the stock or your deck on the bottom left side of the screen to open new cards. The game will uncover 2 cards at a time and thankfully, you are able to redraw the deck without any penalties.
Most importantly, every level of solitaire in Neverland Solitaire is timed. So, you’ll need to keep an eye on the timer as you play. Naturally, the quicker you play, the more points you’ll score. How much time you have left when you complete a level will also affect how many stars you get. Similar to many solitaire games out there, you can earn up to a maximum of 3 stars per level.
The objective in this game is pretty straightforward. You just need to clear the playing field of all cards. You don’t even need to match up the cards in your deck. Also, any penalties that other solitaire has do not apply in this game. It’s incredible really. This makes Neverland Solitaire a very friendly game to players who are new to the Pairs-type solitaire genre and it will also appeal to those who just want to enjoy a relaxing game without all the hassle of power-ups and boosters.
In addition, as you play, you’ll realize that you can fill up the Joker meter with combos – and by “combos”, I mean “performing consecutive matches”. You don’t have to obtain combos rapidly as the meter does not decrease over time, but if you miss a match and draw a card from the deck, you’ll lose your Joker meter and will have to start all over again. Once the meter is full, you’ll get a Joker card which can be used to match and remove any card on the playing field. The meter will then reset itself.
Depending on how you perform, you can get 2 to 3 Joker cards per level. However, bear in mind that Jokers only last for that level, so since you cannot bring any Jokers you have on this level over to the next, it might be best if you just use them up. After all, the game doesn’t penalize you for using Jokers either. Not to mention, the game also provides an undo option as well which allows you to take one step back.
The only 2 ways Neverland Solitaire monetize its game is its adverts and by selling you virtual lives. You are given 5 lives in this game and you’ll lose 1 of them if you fail a level. Once all your lives are out, you won’t be able to play the game anymore. Thankfully, the lives will regenerate by themselves over time, but it’ll take some time. Thus, for those who are slightly more impatient, you might want to support the developers of the game and buy some lives using real cash.
Neverland Solitaire is a pretty good game. However, a big no-no in this game is that it made the rather unforgivable mistake of mixing up Wonderland as in Alice in the Wonderland with Neverland from the Peter Pan story. So, if you’re confused as to why Neverland Solitaire is set in the story, Alice in the Wonderland... well, now you have your answer – it’s a mistake made by the developers.
Neverland Solitaire is admittedly not a very well-known game, but it has around 50 thousand monthly active players, which is pretty impressive for an indie-sort of casual game. Unfortunately, the game does not offer you any way to meet up with you fellow players and to share tips on how to solve some of the tougher levels in the game. However, don’t let this stop you from creating your own Facebook group with your friends who play this game with you.
In terms of graphics, the game’s visuals are brightly colored and look cheerful, but the game seems to have only 1 background and it doesn’t change even as you progress to the later levels. It can get kind of boring after awhile. For sound, the casual music provided in Neverland Solitaire manages to capture the mysterious and magical feeling of Alice in Wonderland perfectly, but there seem to be a glitch of sorts at times where some sort of digital noise will interfere with the music.
To sum it all up, Neverland Solitaire is pretty much a back-to-the-basics-type solitaire game that lack all the bells and whistles of most of the solitaire games out there. It’s basically a Pairs-type game whereby you’ll need to match up 2 cards of the same value regardless of suit. Matching consecutively will also reward you with Joker cards that can be used for that level and that level only. There’s even a helpful undo button to let you go back a move. Earn 3 stars for each level as you journey the amazing Wonderland with Alice while enjoying exciting, time-based games of solitaire! Try it today!
