With poker being the latest craze, mobile poker games are seeing dramatic increases in sales. In order to help you find a mobile poker game that you will actually enjoy playing, I have put together reviews of 7 different popular poker games. The best poker game was THK2 and the worst poker game was Sexy Poker 2006. The rest of them fall somewhere in between.
WPT by mForma
The sounds and graphics in WPT are fairly weak. There is basically one sound, and it’s a twinkle. There are other sounds but I turned them off after I heard the twinkle ten times.
The single player poker is alright. You play with five other computers and they’re somewhat smart.
There are a couple really strange things about this game. For example, when you fold, the round stops and automatically calculates which computer AI won, and the next round starts. You do not see how the round finishes or how the computer bets.
I think you can tell where I’m going with this situs pkv games. This game is just average. Not terrible but not great. It is therefore not a good buy; save your money for the great games.
Texas Hold’Em Kings 2 (THK2)
The graphics were exactly what is needed. I could see multiple hands, as well as my own and I, knew exactly what was going on. It was incredibly easy to read and straight-forward.
The single player gameplay was even more impressive. I thoroughly enjoyed building up my bankroll which I would later bring to the multiplayer tables.
It was so refreshing to actually play with people online. Also, you can play the resident pro at certain times of the day to win prizes. Not only that, but they have a leader board which, if you get in the top three, you win prizes. So basically this game not only is a lot of fun but it can pay for itself.
The game and betting interfaces were simple and contained everything you needed. It was really easy to go from single to multiplayer as well as navigate all the options and menus.
Finally the AI was some of the best I’ve played with. Granted, AI can always be better. I find it extremely difficult to bluff the AI because I’m convinced it is looking at my hand in cyberspace. Maybe that’s not the case but still, AI can always be better. Compared to the other games, this AI was really clean.
I would definitely recommend this game to anyone who enjoys poker. Actually, even if you don’t like poker you should get this game. This game is available from magmic.com.
Downtown Texas Hold’Em
I thought it was a little weird that this game started with a brief explanation on how to play poker. I doubt the market is very big for people buying poker games who have no idea about how to play poker; but that’s just me.
The game interface is weak. There is a giant logo for the cyber tournament that you are playing in at the top of the screen. The words “Muckawa Casino Final” are scrawled in giant letters, taking up a fifth of the screen. This doesn’t add anything to the gameplay and it takes away from vital screen space.
