Following the release of the surprisingly fun Bubble Witch 2 Saga about a month ago, King is already back with a new iOS offering with Pyramid Solitaire Saga [Free], which hit the App Store worldwide on the 4th of July. Like all of King's games, Pyramid Solitaire Saga takes a tried-and-true gameplay mechanic–in this case the classic pyramid solitaire–and injects it with a level-based progression system and cutesy graphics.

It's easy to be cynical about King games, but it's hard to deny that their catalog has garnered millions of fans in the crazy world of mobile games. I've never really caught the fever for any of King's games, but after sitting down to check out Pyramid Solitaire Saga "real quick" and losing nearly two hours working my way through the beginnings of the game, this might be the one that hooks me. It's also probably due to it being very similar gameplay-wise to Fairway Solitaire, which I'm a huge fan of.

So hey, if you're not a fan of King games, then there's nothing to see here! You can easily satiate your hardcore gaming hunger with the recently-released Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. But, if you like the occasional casual game, and especially if you like variations on solitaire, Pyramid Solitaire Saga is worth the free download to check out and see if it's for you.

      Saga is their "thing" so any game they spend at least 5 days making they add that tag to

    OMG I can't believe I just spent 10 minutes not playing Monster Hunter FU to read this.

      How silly of you knowing you didn't care about the subject of the article but dropped the game you were playing to spend ten minutes (really, ten minutes? it's not a long article) reading it anyway and having to register your annoyance at wasting ten minutes on it instead of the game. Should work on your time wasting skills there.

    Looks fantastic. Great job King.

    This game has been on Facebook for over a year, so it's been successful enough to make it onto iOS. I think I'm on level 9 or something like that, so I'm excited to keep going on my iThing!

  • Truffled

    While this is nice (for us few King fans) I was really hoping their next one on iOS would be Pepper Panic or Diamond Digger.

    More like Pyramid Scam.

  • thesinmaster

    Prefer to have "fairway solitaire". It forces you to use power-ups from lvl 14 or something

    • worldcitizen1919

      Was good up to the point they started adding layers where you have to use boosters to win.
