UNOFriends is a very interesting card game popular in many cheerful companies worldwide. In some countries, there are similar games with different names and pretty much the same gameplay, so we can safely assume that you won't have problems with the playing UNOFriends. Unlike its predecessor created by the same studio Gameloft, you can download this game for free, but its main advantage lies in the fact that here you are to try strength and luck not with bots (virtual opponents), but with the same players as you are.
Objectives and tasksThe goal in this game is one which is to get rid of all the cards quicker than your opponents, but the rules of the game require compliance with certain items, among which the most important role is played by carefulness. The cards are painted in four basic colors, differ in figures and other elements. In fact, they have already stated what the cards are for and what kind of effect they can cause when used properly, and as for the carefulness, it affects how well you will handle your cards and whether you will forget something important.
Cards and their purposeThe basic cards have figures with denomination from 0 to 9, and each color has two such sets. Besides, there are 4 cards with an image of a circle divided into four parts, each of which is painted in a certain color. These cards can summon any color and they can be placed upon any card in the discarded deck. There are also 4 cards forcing the next player into taking 4 cards, but only if you have nothing to lead. If you have been cheating and the opponent wants to check you, it's you exactly who will get 4 cards of the deck. However, if everything is fair, the doubter is punished with two more cards in addition to the 4 cards.
The deck has 8 more cards forcing the next player into passing the move; 8 cards changing the direction of moves to reverse to the previous one (if moves had been in a clockwise direction, then after this card they start in the reverse direction - counterclockwise); and 8 cards making the next player draw two cards from the deck instead of making a move. You can place cards on the table only if you have the same suit (color) or the same value as that of the card lying on top, with the exception of cards "color change" and "draw 4 cards" (the nuances described above).
Important nuanceAnother feature of the game is that after you have put the penultimate card on the table, you should immediately press the "Uno" button which will notify all the players that you have left with the last card. If you fail to click on the "Uno" button before the next player makes a move, you get 2 extra cards from the deck. That is, generally, all the basic rules, and you can understand the nuances during the game itself.
ResumeUNOFriends has very high-quality graphics and an excellent soundtrack, but only those people can play it who have a constant access to the Internet. Another nuance is that fans of the game will sometimes have to pause to recover the in-game means for playing another match, or to invest your own money (Donat).
