Outpatients Review

If you’ve played solitaire (and who hasn’t?) it won’t take long to get to grips with Outpatients, as medical theme aside it’s simply a twist on that old single player card game.

You start the game with a single face up card in front of you and three pyramids of cards above it. The bottom row of each pyramid is face up while subsequent rows are face down.

The idea is to take one of the face up cards from a pyramid and put it on the face up card in front of you, but it has to be either one higher or one lower than your current card.

You then continue to place cards on top of it for as long as possible. Clearing the bottom row of a pyramid reveals cards on the row above and ultimately you want to move all the cards from the table onto the stack in front of you.

Of course inevitably you’ll get stuck, at which point you can draw a card from the deck, which then gets placed on top of your pile and lets you keep going from whatever was drawn. As with solitaire it’s possible to get to a point where you can’t continue.

The game is fine, it’s a slight twist on a game we’ve all played and if you enjoy solitaire it’s absolutely worth a go, it controls well and the medical theme doesn’t get in the way of the core game. It’s not the most exciting thing you’ll ever play but there are worse ways to while away a rainy afternoon. You can find it on PlayJam.

Verdict

If you enjoy solitaire give this a try, you just might like it.
