“I Come Not, Friends, To Steal Away Your Hearts”


Hearts iconHearts

Microsoft used to offer a quote from Shakespeare's famous play, Julius Caesar—I come not, friends, to steal away your hearts—in its popular Hearts game.

Indeed, alongside Solitaire and Minesweeper, the Hearts game was widely distributed by Microsoft to users through some of its early versions of Windows up to Windows 7. After which, Microsoft has disappointed devoted players as it has not made this game available either in Windows 8 or 10.

The only good news is that you still have a chance to get this popular game to work if you follow this article Get Classic Windows 7 Games in Windows 8 and 10 for Free. However, it is a desktop app and Microsoft has yet to produce one for mobiles as of today.

While we're waiting for more from Microsoft, why not we take a look at the Google Play store for any offers of this game for mobile devices. Not surprisingly it has been overwhelmed with a plethora of Hearts games, most of them using almost the same app title—Hearts.

Among a multitude of great choices, Hearts developed by Karman Games stands out for its user-friendly design and rich features. You can play against strong computer players as well as online human players with either rated or friendly games.

Besides the Android version of Hearts, the developer has produced a version for both iPhone and iPad.

I've been playing Hearts (both on-line and stand-alone) on my Windows computers for a lonnng time and this is a welcome addition to my game box, since I'm not always near one of my computers, but I always have that #%$@! electronic ball-and-chain with me.

Thanks for the good news!
