Poker Swap. A Poker game like no other, pick-up-and-play style! We bet you’ll get hooked! Poker Swap Pro: a fresh blend of poker and puzzle game! We bet you’ll get hooked!
5 rows of 5 cards are dealt face-up. You can swap any card with any other on the board. You score points for all horizontal or vertical poker hands you complete. Be smart and quickly spot the best combos!
Intuitive touch controls and simple rules give Poker Swap Pro the proverbial “easy to learn, hard to master” quality, while special bonuses and increasingly difficult challenges provide plenty of depth, for near infinite replayability.
Price: Free, $0.99
Pros & Cons:
- Fun and unique twist on playing Poker
- Several game play modes, great for the casual gamers
- Graphic quality on higher resolution screens is poor
- Needs overall polish
Poker Swap is a causal yet addictive game of creating Poker hands to score the highest points possible with each hand, however, you swap the position of cards to score. Playing on a 5×5 grid of cards you’re against the clock and have to factor both vertical and horizontal Poker hands. It gets a bit more interesting with special cards such as (score) Multipliers, Extra Time, Stones (obstacle card that gets in your way), Mystery Card, and Locked Card. The game features Open Feint achievements to unlock in the Pro version. There are 4 game play modes;
- Quick Game: for some quick Poker Swap action to get the best score
- 3-Round Game: gives 3 quick games under the timer to score as many points as possible
- Survival: ups the ante and score thresholds to meet a designated time
- Zen Mode: is without timer where you’re free to simple play and rack up points

Fun Factor & Addictive:
Good time-waster and desirable for casual gamers especially in Zen Mode. For a good challenge play the Survival Mode as you race the clock to meet or exceed the score thresholds. One gripe with the latter, I wish the game would save your progress in this game mode versus starting from the beginning every time.
This game could benefit from a boost in the graphics department, my critical eye saw the bitmap degradation on WVGA+ screens.
Accelerometer, Vibration & Sound:
The game has background music which can be toggled.
