Canasta is a free video game app that lets you play the classic card game from the comfort and convenience of your mobile Android device. It supports both online multiplayer and single player gameplay, and the computer opponents are more than challenging enough to make the game interesting. You can set the difficulty rating of each opponent or partner in the game, and you can view statistics about your performance.
For maximum playability, the app is compatible with both portrait and landscape views. This makes it easy to enjoy no matter where you are, even if you only have one hand to play the game. There are a number of Canasta decks in the game, and you can collect them all by completing various tasks. The game is customizable to a certain degree, and you can alter the background color for your own preference.
The software is designed for both tablets and smartphones, so the gesture controls are smooth and intuitive. While some players have said that the opponent AI software is too difficult, this can be remedied by changing the difficulty in the app. Of course, even with the computer at the lowest level, some players claim it still seems as if the computer is 'cheating' by viewing the cards in your hand and reacting to them.
As far as the graphics are concerned, this game is quite beautiful for a free card game. The decks are striking and memorable, and the design of the app environment itself is modern yet sleek and filled with depth. You won't be able to perform any illegal moves since the game restricts you to legitimate moves, and there are several in-app purchases that you can buy to improve the gameplay. Of course, these purchases are not at all required to enjoy the game.
