RatScrew Reviews

Gives you the option to turn off certain slap settings depending on how you personally play the game IRL, but does not save or apply them. Beautiful look, smooth play, but don’t give us options then disregard them.

This is one of our favorite games on the App Store. It has great game play and with the new update, you can finally slap the pile!!! We would love this game except for a bug the update brought. Whenever our CPU opponent slaps the pile before we do, the cards disappear and the whole game stops working. You can go back to the main menu, but when you resume the game it’s still not working. Also, there’s a small bug where if you finish a game, the "you win" screen pops up. You then tap the screen and it goes back to the main menu. This is what is supposed to happen. But when we start a new game it says another game is still in progress an that we can resume it. We press resume and it just goes back to the you win screen. This isn’t too much of a problem because we can then go back to the main menu and start a new game by erasing the progress of the "other game still in progress." But its still a bit annoying. Lastly, you haven’t updated the instructions to say that you can slap the hand or the pile.

It’s very exciting ! Enjoying difficulty and opportunity to practice your reaction time ! We love it ! Enjoying every moment of it !!!

We don’t like how close the buttons are.. U should be able to slap the deck not the hand we always accidentally hit the deck cuz that’s how u play in real life. If u added those it would be 5 stars!

All of the computer levels are super hard. Even the beginner. We also think you should be able to slap the deck.

The computer player is quite good which makes it a good challenge. Luckily you can change the difficulty settings. Game is addicting and quite fun!

The game is so fun to play. You have to get this game. :)

Very chalanging game, we like it. Its fun.

This is a great game with no glitches and it’s extremely fun. A great buy.!!

… Is the physical pain of getting smacked on the top of your hand when you go for the pile. Great rendition of the classic slap-the-pile game. The customizable rule variants are a nice touch.
