I think it’s kind of weird to get excited about Solitaire. I mean after all, it is a fairly boring and simple game that you play alone, but if there’s anything that can revive my excitement in the card game it’s the iPhone app called Awesome Solitaire.

Awesome Solitaire is a free app for the iPhone that just makes Solitaire look pretty. It adds a couple of visual effects to the game that are very subtle but make playing solitaire a bit more enjoyable. Things like moving stars in space that react to the iPhone’s accelerometer and sparkly card flourishes all add up to make a boring game a little less mundane.

Here’s Awesome Solitaire’s crazy promo video. It’s…weird.
