UNO is an app that emulates the classic card game of the same name.
A staple of most childhood game nights, UNO has been around for ages in its original form. Even with all the current emphasis on new technologies and browser-based games, UNO's simplicity, fun and quick-paced nature has endured for decades. In a way it's fitting that this classic card game has made its way into the iTunes App Store and onto our mobile devices.
The UNO app is a really good approximation of the card game we all played as children. The graphics are crisp and clear, and gameplay is just as rapid as it is in its original form. You can choose to play UNO against computerized opponents or else challenge other UNO users online. Play multiple games and obtain 250 points quicker than your opponents to win.
UNO has a great tutorial and hints feature that shows you how to play the game on your mobile device with ease. You can also choose a game player color and icon, as well as input your name for a more personalized experience. If you need to stop playing for any reason, UNO will save your progress, and you can resume the next time you turn on your mobile device.
The only real criticism of the program is a small one. Upon initial purchase of the program the installation takes a few minutes, which is a great deal longer than most app installations. It's a small price to pay for an incredibly fun game though.
The UNO app is a great approximation to the original classic game, and just as fun.
