First impression: the app looks incredibly cute and fun and I like the music!

There are three game modes: single player mode, head to head, and multiplayer.

In single player mode, you play against a computer.

When I only had my iPod Classic, the only game I would play is a solitaire game called “Klondike.” Now, I have an iPod touch and I play Pounce. And to be honest, I would rather be playing Klondike. The controls are hard to use, dragging tiny cards with your fingers. Every once in a while I would drag the wrong card and I let go. Then I try to drag it again and I get the wrong card. Again.

Ignoring that flaw in the game, I played on. It turned out to be pretty good. That’s a plus for the single player mode.

In head to head mode,you play against a computer whose skill level is chosen by you. You actually play the game on your own in real time, competing with the computer. I think that’s actually pretty cool and it’s a nice concept that they incorporated into this game.

Multiplayer mode is basically head to head mode with up to five players both human and computer.

The many features of this game add up to its total score.
