Pocket Cards Jockey: Ride! It was developed by Gamereak, the same studio behindGames, a remake of the 2013 Nintendo 3DS game Pocket Card Jockey.
The premise of the game is that you race horses by playing golf solitaire, a type of card game where you clear cards from the board by selecting one card above or below your stock card. The more cards you clear, the more energy your horse will have and the better your chances of winning the race.
The horse racing card game may seem hard to come by, but it’s easier – and more fun – than it looks. The game is also understandably funny and fun at the beginning of the game when your character falls off his horse and gets trampled by other horses. Then she meets an angel who mysteriously connects golfing and horseback riding. Your character is rambunctious, but before the angel explains, you’ll be off to the races!
