Originally based on "Trinity Solitaire" by Bryan Horling and Kenneth Coste, Burning Monkey Solitaire v2.5.1 for Mac OS 8.6 - Mac OS 9.2.2/OS X 10.0 or higher (PPC), Burning Monkey Solitaire v3.0.1 (aka Burning Monkey Solitaire 2005) for Mac OS 9.0 - Mac OS 9.2.2/OS X 10.1 PPC and above, and Burning Monkey Solitaire v4.0.2 for OS X 10.3.9 PPC and above were the major releases.

Recalling children and adults alike for many years laughing their heads off at the "Monkey" humor parts of the games, while playing the quite functional card games, is certainly something I recall with a smile; Along with Eric's Ultimate Solitaire, Burning Monkey Solitaire is certainly what I most often see on Macs from the G3 CPU Mac OS 8.x machines on up through OS X 10.6.8 Intel CPU machines.

The "killing" of backwards software compatibility by Apple Corporate - by no longer including the QuickTransit "Rosetta" dynamic binary translator on OS X 10.7.0 "Lion" and above (and by not having a standalone "Rosetta" available that users could purchase), is what has caused so very many longtime applications to have issues or to stop running completely. The result is many companies dropping OS X and iOS Platforms.

Freeverse stated: "Some of our titles have not gotten the attention that we would have liked to provide them. Rather than leaving our customers with a sub-par experience running certain titles under OS X Lion, and in light of phasing out our GameSmith service, we've made the hard decision to discontinue the following titles. We will continue to provide support for these titles running on versions of OS X prior to 10.7 Lion."

Discontinued titles include: Airburst, Burning Monkey Casino, Burning Monkey Mahjong, Burning Monkey Puzzle Lab, Burning Monkey Solitaire, Enigma, Periscope, Squabble, ToySight, 3D Bridge, 3D Crazy 8s, Euchre Deluxe, Hearts Deluxe, Pitch-Setback, Spades Deluxe, CrossCards, and X-Words Deluxe...

Nice game. Too bad it no longer functions under Lion and was discontinued.

Freecell is a good game at the beginning. But after the first dozen it becomes too easy. It allows the player to undo moves, thereby making EVERY game winable. You can also restart any game. The challenge level after the first dozen games is 2 out of 10.
