Anawiki Games today has announced the iOS and Mac OS X release of its latest solitaire title, Seven Seas Solitaire. It's available at the Apple App Store and Mac App Store.
Here's how the game is described: "Like the company's earlier titles, Avalon Legends Solitaire and Soccer Cup Solitaire, Seven Seas Solitaire adds a strong storyline to classic solitaire gameplay, with a few thematic twists and new mechanics thrown in. The game kicks off with the protagonist — Benjamin Fleet, a former naval captain wrongfully imprisoned, accused of kidnapping the duke's daughter.
"The story is set in a fictionalized version of the Caribbean, full of monsters, pirates, ghosts and magic. Benjamin's journey takes place in a series of stages, each of which consists of several locations spread around a particular area of the sea. The player can tackle the locations in any order, and each provides a surprising adventure and an unknown reward; a few will contain quest items which need to be collected to unlock the stage's final level and advance through the game, while others reward the player with optional bonus items or cash.
Aside from these special rewards, the player also earns money through performing well in the levels themselves. This money, in turn, is used to purchase upgrades for Benjamin's secret island hideout, or for the Falcon itself. Each of these upgrades provides the player with special powers, so the game experience can be very different depending on the player's choices."
The iOS version is an universal app, compatible with iPhone and iPad, and the Mac version requires OS X version 10.7.5 or higher. Seven Seas Solitaire is a free download with a three-stage demo available and full version can be unlocked without leaving the game via in-app purchases starting at US$4.99.
