Classic card game Hearts gets a modern (and minimalist) update

Hearts app by aeliox for iOS

I couldn’t tell you the last time I played the old card game Hearts. I remember having a lot of fun playing it as a kid, as it’s a simple (but quite strategic) game of avoiding certain cards which give you points The more points you have, the more you’re losing. Now San Diego designer Keiran Flanigan, who designs under the pseudonym aeliox, has recreated Hearts as a beautifully minimal iOS app.

This is one of those perfect games for when you’re standing in line, waiting for coffee, and you want something to do to pass the time. The gameplay is quick and the design of the game is clean and beautiful. When I first started playing I didn’t quite remember all the rules, but after 10 minutes of playing and a glance at the rules in the app I was totally set. The app even has different skins so you can customize what your gameplay experience looks like. In my opinion, this app is a must buy.
