Solitaire Reverse is a relaxing alternative version of Klondike Solitaire. The game displays a blue tabletop with a traditional seven columns of layered face-down and face-up cards, a foundation area and a draw pile. Yet, unlike most versions of Solitaire, the player doesn't reorder non-suit cards in the build columns in a descending, sequential order (K, Q, J...).
Instead, the player must order them in an ascending, non-suit order (A, 2, 3...) from the top to the bottom of the column build. Additionally, any free space in the columns starts with an Ace instead of a King. The foundation area also doesn't start with an Ace at the bottom of each pile. It starts with a King and the piles build upward in a descending order until the tops of each pile display an Ace.
Solitaire Reverse offers some traditional aspects of gameplay, such as a timer, points accumulation and a hint tool. That said, it also offers unique reversal features, such as a steal tool that transfers a card from the columns to the face-up cards in the draw-pile area when the player needs to work around an out-of-sequence card during a build.
The game even features quests that the player must complete to earn additional points referred to as crowns. The player spends these points to change the deck's design and background theme.
