    There can be UNO one!


    Uno has the honour of being part of Microsofts Windows 7 release line up and although a basic game it is a good introduction to the world of WP7.

    Simular to the XBLA version your cards are at the bottom of the screen and well...well it's UNO. Simple yet addictive you'll find yourself tapping away for hours at a time.

    The difference here to the XBLA version (apart from the lack of online play) is the game modes.

    You can start of with a quick game on easy or normal which is basic UNO rules and if you have not played UNO before a few hands on easy mode will get you in to the swing of things and then you can move on to normal. Hard is unlocked later.

    Where this version earns is keep though is through tournement mode; 15 'levels' as it were of UNO but each time you win a round the rules of the next change for example one version will tax you brain on tactics when a 0 will shift everyones hands round in the direction of play where a 7 allows you to swap your hand with another players.

    The touch screen is responsive and easy to use, a tap of your cards enlarges them and you can move through your hand to choose the card you want to play. Even with my big hands I had no issues with hitting the wrong button (although the placement of the phones 'back' button made sure that a couple of times I left my game but as it saves exactly where you left it was not a hair pulling screen fest of losing a game save!)


    If you own or are planing to buy a WP7 UNO is a sure bet to pick up....and easy achievements help the sale!
