In Showdown Poker, it's pair or nothing-- of players, that is-- due to the glaring omission of a single-player mode and the limitation to one-on-one matches. This is why the game is a gamble for your $0.99, a risk you probably shouldn't take.
The prime selling point of Showdown Poker is its Bluetooth multiplayer, which was one of the big features included in software 3.0. Unfortunately, it took us more time to connect than it did for us to play the game. Still, once connected, it ran pretty smoothly."
