I would like a Blackjack that, firstly, plays realistically with the full set of choices: hit, stand, double, split, and insurance. Secondly I would like good graphics and big cards.
Atari's original Blackjack has big cards, it looks great, and it sounds good too, but shocker I tried it and I didn't seem to be able to split. Plus, it's OSB only from what I've been able to tell, however I found a modified version that seems to run on XL: http://gury.atari8.i...games/5785.htm.
I tried Keypunch Software's Blackjack but it apparently won't let one double! It looks okay graphically, but has one of those stylized computerish fonts that is incongruous for Blackjack.
I haven't played Manhattan Software's Blackjack yet but from the screenshot (http://www.atarimani...k_counter_4.gif
) it looks to have all the choices, though the graphics are sparse.
Ken Uston's Professional Blackjack no doubt has all the choices, but I haven't located the download yet.
Any ideas for a decent Blackjack simulation? It's really too bad about the original Atari one's limited play capability, because it looks and sounds so good.
