Silver Creek Entertainment Announces Hardwood Solitaire for AndroidFlagship Game Optimized for NVIDIA Tegra-Powered Mobile Devices (July 20, 2010)
GRANTS PASS, OR -- (Marketwire) -- 07/20/10 -- Silver Creek Entertainment's Hardwood Solitaire, the longstanding flagship of the Hardwood Games franchise, is now optimized for the NVIDIA® (NASDAQ: NVDA) Tegra mobile processor.
Hardwood Solitaire IV is a cross-platform game designed to run on PCs, as well as Android tablets and smartphones. Hardwood Solitaire IV is also utilizing the new micro transaction business model, allowing players to buy only the features or versions wanted by the players. Public availability of the Android version of Hardwood Solitaire is expected later in the year.
"We're very excited to be on the front line of the Android tablet revolution, bringing high-quality card games to a power-sipping and graphically-capable mobile platform such as Tegra," said Jonas Stewart, Creative Director of Silver Creek Entertainment. "Tablets offer the most natural way to play our games and have room on the screen to stretch out a bit, which is going to be great for our mobile players. It's the convenience of a deck of cards, and none of the mess."
"We've partnered with NVIDIA Tegra to make sure that the flagship versions of all of our games look fantastic and provide the best experience possible," said Rich Stewart, Chief Executive Officer of Silver Creek Entertainment. "We've barely scratched the surface of Tegra's capabilities and are looking forward to putting many new features and effects into our games."
Hardwood Solitaire offers unsurpassed beauty, a host of solitaire game types, and a guarantee of excellence. More than 100 exciting solitaire games to play, including favorite solitaire games like Klondike, Spider, FreeCell, Pyramid, Yukon, and a whole lot more, including original solitaire games not found elsewhere.
