Buggy software, cluttered interface and an arrogant developer - that's the impression you get after trying out this program. It crashes every few minutes randomly, although there are no bugs, as the developer states. It's interface is cluttered with hundreds of buttons where you wouldn't expect them, graphics are ugly, the registration instructions are incomprehensible, as there are different versions - but if you decide on the wrong one, please, don't ask the dev for help, as all he will tell you is that YOU are the one to blame if things go wrong. Don't buy!

I find, it is a very good program. The most time I play without the story for a quick play.

I'm with Nick. This program suffers from the programmer suffering a god complex. later.

The only Doppelkopf-game for OS X … and the worst (admitted, that doesn't mean much considering the previous information).

I don't know about the registered version but playing the demo is an awful experience. There are nag windows that stay open for roughly half a minute after every game. Most of the options don't work (e. g. no saus, supersaus, and only two types of solos one can play, no way to announce sth.) and from time to time, the application simply quits stating that the demo time has ended due to manipulation (that is clicking on "new deal" to start a new game for example - hell, if that is considered manipulation then I'm probably a software pirate!).

The interface is too complex, has no clear structure, and opens one window after another on startup instead of combining all options in one simple dialog-window.

Playing Doppelkopf is possible with this application, granted. It simply is no fun due to the fact that you cannot play it correctly because the demo lacks many of the official rules and the AI that often plays a bit clumsy (changing all oponent's "character" is not possible in demo mode).

Dear Developer, this is definitly not how you're going to get people registering your software. I played this demo for a few hours because Doppelkopf is my favorite card game and I had nobody to play with. Consider me sweet-tempered because I gave it one chance after another to persuade me to register - but it failed. I cannot recommend it because there are way too many flaws, bugs, UI inconsistencies and AI oddities.

This also allows for more variety when playing league or championship games against a number of other simulated players. In this regard, Rasche's Doppelkopf 3.0 also introduces a new fantasy element in the form of an entire "town" of Doppelkopf players ready to take you on. Your goal is to increase your starting capital by playing Doppelkopf. There are eight different rooms with players of different skill levels and a variety of six game options. But don?t get carried away with the various attractions.
