Simple to use
You can't see how many cards you have played.
Clock Solitaire for the Andriod is easy to play. Simply tap a card to turn it over, and drag it across to the correct pile. For example, if your get a queen, put it at 12 o'clock, and if you get a king, put it in the middle.
Due to the fact that the probability of you winning is very low (your last card has to be a king in order to complete the clock), there is also a scoring system that will be saved onto a board of high scores. It does not, however, explain what the scoring system is. I have no idea whether time is a factor or not, and I don't know what the difference is between 'points' and 'score'.
Given that this is such a basic game, I would expect all the features to be perfect, but there is one aspect that I find annoying. When you drag a card over the corresponding pile, it just disappears, meaning you have no idea how many cards you have played or have left to play.
Once the pile is complete, all those cards will be turned over so at least you get an idea of some of the progress you are making.
Although it is no different from a game of Clock Solitaire you play with a physical set of cards, I somehow find it far less stimulating. It isn't exactly like there is anything wrong with the game, but I really think you need a visceral experience to be able to get enjoyment out of it. Perhaps some sound effects would have helped.
