UNO Review – Main Takeaways
UNO is just that. The UNO game we all know and love. I won’t go into the basic game rules – you can check them out online. This game in High Definition for Kindle Fire.
The visuals are crisp and the game flows quite fast. It does allow you to enter your name for game play – but only displays the first 5 letters which is a bit silly.
Three games modes are available: Quick Play, Tournament and Multiplayer. I spent most of my time in Quick Play Mode. Basically – you against 3 opponents. You can choose from 3 difficulty levels for the competition. I found this to work well – it was obvious whose turn it was and how to pick cards or pull a card from the deck. Took me a few turns to figure out how to click on UNO before I played my next to last card and how to call it on opponents, but that is easy once you figure it out.
In Tournament mode you try to win the best of 5 matches. This can take a while to play – but looks like a lot of fun for vacation days.
There are a variety of options that can be set based upon which rules you like to play.
I did learn I had to adjust the volume before starting the game in order to avoid the fun of adjusting the volume while in game mode in Kindle Fire without physical volume buttons.
UNO Review – Conclusion and Overall Rating
I would give UNO a rating of 4.25 stars. I enjoyed playing the game and it flows very nicely on the Kindle Fire. Grab this up while it is on sale for $0.99 – I thought it was worth it even at its normal price.
