The redesigned Texas Hold 'em app has a new lease on life

Inläggav mmogame » 18 sep 2019, 07:51

The App Store opened for business 11 years ago this week and to mark the anniversary of its app marketplace, Apple is reviving its old iOS poker game. The redesigned Texas Hold 'em app has a new lease on life with more characters, sharper graphics and gameplay that should prove a bit more of a challenge. It's also now free to play.

Originally available for iPod, Texas Hold'em came to the iPhone in 2008, and then Apple yanked the game in 2011. Now, it's back with the same name and app store listing. It adds 10 poker venues, the ability to work offline, multiplayer with up to eight friends, first-person or top-down gameplay options, and granular views of hints, stats, and ratings. The new update also adds more modern graphics and 64-bit architecture. It'll eat up about 1.5 GB of space on your iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad.

Texas Hold’em is a game with a fair amount of history for Apple. The original version actually launched as one of the first games for the click wheel iPod back in 2006. Apple continued to use Texas Hold’em as an early tech demo when it was released as the first game on the App Store in 2008, showing developers the kinds of games that could be made using Apple’s SDK and how the iPhone’s touch interface could be used to offer new gameplay experiences.

Apple is offering Texas Hold’em 2.0 for free starting today from the iOS App Store, oddly to “celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the App Store,” which actually took place last year on July 10, 2018. The company improbably released a new game, a Paperboy clone called Warren Buffett’s Paper Wizard, two months ago, perhaps as a sign of its renewed interest in games ahead of the fall launch of the Apple Arcade subscription gaming service.
