Top 5 of 25 : UNO!

September 18, 2009 by Ryan Ray 

Finally, we’re going to finish up this series on a wonderful Friday. I’ve got a lot of great stuff coming your way as well. My weekend is not busy at all so I should be posting all the goodies over the weekend. So if you get bored check the site over the weekend. Better yet subscribe to our RSS feed, and follow us on Twitter! The last app in this drawn out series is a game we all know and love. It’s called UNO! I picked up the free version but if you want the full version then you’ll have to pay over $4.99. Just my humble opinion, but I don’t love UNO that much to pay $5 for it. I know there are some real UNO lovers out there so it may be worth it to you to have the game on your iPhone. The paid versions offers some nice multiplayer features though, you can play online with strangers or take on friends over Wifi. That’s cool in itself. So check it out if you need the full version.

Before I show you the game play and look of the game, I do have one issue with the free version. The free version doesn’t even let you finish a game. You get through about 5 hands and it just stops, then takes you to a screen where it asks you to buy the full version. In my eyes that’s not good marketing, for one how do I really enjoy the game enough after 5 hands to buy the full version. Then after annoying me and not letting me finish, you ask me to buy the full version. Gameloft might want to rethink that strategy, I’m not sure how many conversions that pulls in. Just my opinion though. Alright, screen shot time.

UNO! Free Music

UNO! Free Tap To Start

These first two are pretty self explanatory. As they say read them and weep. At least they kindly give you the option to listen to your own music while playing UNO. As you’ll see in a video I’ll upload later today, the music is kind of annoying. Hah. To start the game just tap the second screen.

UNO! Free Enter Player Name

UNO! Free Pick A Color

Then it will ask you to enter your name. Warning for you, this keyboard is really annoying to use not to mention UGLY. Gameloft developers just use the normal iPhone keyboard. It works better. Then after typing your name in choose a color. Red, Orange, Green, or Pink! I’m sad there is no blue here to choose, that’s my favorite color.

UNO! Free Game Play

Here you’ve only got a few options, buy the full game or Quick Play. Like I said earlier Quick Play lets you play about 5 hands then bugs you some more to get the full version. I don’t even see why a FREE version exist if you can barely play it!

UNO! Free Dealing Hands

UNO! Free My Hand

Finally this is what the game play looks like. The top is the cards being dealt out in a neat effect. The bottom is the game in action. Someone played their change color card. As you will see in the video below, it’s a pretty easy game to play. Tap and hold on your cards and they all fan out so you can pick the one you want. Then just drag it to the pile to play it. Doesn’t get much simpler.

UNO may not be everyones favorite game, but I used to love it back in the day. We’d be at my Grandparents or at their condo on a rainy day, and just get out UNO and play ALL DAY. At least it felt like all day. If you are a UNO lover or hater let me know! After watching the video leave us a comment, and be sure to hit up our Twitter for more interaction. You guys are awesome, thanks for reading.

    Did you play UNO on your iPod? I don’t know what Phase 10 is, I’m sure some other game I won’t like, lol.

    We bought it, we love it, we play it alone, we play it together on wifi. You always have your cards for a fun time with family and friends, but I am an old fogey iPhone lover!

    Hah, wonderful comment Kat. Speaking for myself I would probably only be interested in the playing with someone on Wifi. Otherwise I’ll stick to the old school game of UNO! Thanks for your input.

    I’ve seen mahjong paorrls all over Japan. They seem to run the gamut from seedy yakuza haunts to respectable family entertainment places along with manga/internet cafes.What I want to know are three things. First, when you go there, do you go with your friends and get a table so you can play together, or is it like a casino/card room where you go to find a game with random people?Second, how do these places make money? Do they charge per hour for your seat and try to sell you food and drinks? Do some of them take a cut of the bets like card rooms?Which leads me to the third question. Gambling is illegal in Japan, yet mahjong paorrls operate out in the open. Obviously nobody plays mahjong just for fun any more than they would play poker. So how do the players handle the exchange of money without attracting unwanted attention?
