Freeverse Software continued its week-long “Big Week” festivities with the announcement that it has released
Burning Monkey Solitaire 4, a new version of its long-running solitaire card game series for the Mac. It costs $24.95, and is a free upgrade for registered owners of previous versions.
Burning Monkey Solitaire features more than 30 different variants on solitaire card games — everything from classics like Klondike and Freecell to Pyramid, Eliminator, Carpet and many others.
But what really makes Burning Monkey Solitaire unique is its use of prodigious use of monkeys — both as playing card decorations and as parts of the scenery. The game is rife with horrible jokes, bad puns, easter eggs and hidden animations involving monkeys and apes, and, as Freeverse points out, is the only game on the market that has a “bagel” button.
Burning Monkey Solitaire 4 features an overhauled graphics engine that uses OpenGL. It now supports widescreen displays, features animated card effects and is a Universal binary that runs natively on Intel and PowerPC-based Macs alike.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.3.9 or later, 64MB RAM and 200MB hard disk space. A demo is available from the Web site.
