I love this game, but to save my highscores it needs to connect to the Lavacat website? But I think his website is offline... :(

Sorry for my very late reply (very busy lately). But I see you already had an excellent answer. Good luck and have fun with this game.

My wife loves this app! All she wants is a simple Klondike solitaire app. She doesn't need 100 different games or fancy animations. Solitaire XL fits the bill. It looks great, it can be scaled up to a huge size, and it works flawlessly.

The only thing that would be nice to have added to Solitaire XL would be a semi-opaque background, similar to some widgets. As it is, you can choose a solid brushed metal background (gak!), or no background at all. A semi-opaque background would be a nice third choice that would enable you to see apps in the background, but would "mute" their appearance so that it would be easier to see the playing cards (which can sometimes get lost in the background clutter).

This is a great, aesthetically pleasing solitaire program. It is very stable, you can select your own custom card backs, and the stacks seem to "hover" over your desktop or working space. Kudos to the developer(s)!

Best looking and user friendly solitaire game that I have played. Wish the game would save your own game scores and list them for multiple users just like Snood does. If this game style was made for other card games also I would be glad to pay for something like this. Just love the graphics and how the cards float above the desktop. Very nice.

Solitaire XL was a great program for as long as it worked for me: great graphics, novel idea of displaying cards directly over the destop, and stabile, except for occasxionally needing to force quit it. Then suddenly, it stopped working on my Alum Powerbook 1.5 Ghz running Tiger 10.4.1. I'd sure like to have it back again.

This is an awesome looking game of Solitaire! No internet required as I didn't have it when I first played the game. GREAT work! To bad it doesn't work on an older G3

I really like this. I was searching for some solitaire game because I missed the one I had on Windows, which seems technically better than the others around here. Then I stumbled on this little gem. I like the graphics especially. Bravo.

Good looking and amusing. It requires an Internet connection, since it downloads images from the web to the game. Other than this, and the displaying of ads (as it is shown in the User Agreement), it's a very nice Solitaire game. :)
