In 2006, Apple released “Texas Hold’em” for the iPod, eventually porting it over to the iPhone in 2008. By 2011, the game had disappeared from the App Store. But now, Apple is bringing the title back with a few new upgrades for fans to enjoy. Apple wrote that the game was coming back to celebrate a historic anniversary for the App Store, though it appears they missed the mark by about a year.
The App Store description says that the game is in celebration of its 10-year anniversary, which is kind of odd, since we're just a few days away from the 11-year anniversary. The game is a 1.5GB download, and features 24 realistic characters who have their own distinctive playing style and body language, and ten distinctive locations to choose from, including Las Vegas, Paris, and Macau. You can also play the game with up to eight friends with Wi-Fi multiplayer. And if you want to Buy Texas Hold'em Poker Chips, visit 777chips.com, a professional online in-game currency store.
Texas Hold’em is a game with a fair amount of history for Apple. The original version actually launched as one of the first games for the click wheel iPod back in 2006. Apple continued to use Texas Hold’em as an early tech demo when it was released as the first game on the App Store in 2008, showing developers the kinds of games that could be made using Apple’s SDK and how the iPhone’s touch interface could be used to offer new gameplay experiences.
Dubbed Texas Hold’em 2.0, the game has a redesigned graphical interface which means that it certainly looks better especially on the modern iPhone screens which are much larger than they were a decade ago. In addition to that, the game’s animations have received some rather significant upgrades which makes it just as smooth as all other iPhone apps. In addition to that, Apple’s Texas Hold’em also now boasts of the 64-bit architecture that was debuted by App with iOS 11.
