End of a game, with some pretty terrible hands.
This is a Poker Solitaire (aka Poker Squares or Poker Patience) game for the Atari 8-bit computer, written in the C programming language and cross-compiled using cc65.
Using a shuffled deck of 52 cards (13 ranks × 4 suits), you are to place cards on a 5×5 grid. Once a card is placed, it cannot be moved.
Once a row or column is full, a score is given based on the poker hand that was formed. (Points depend on the hierarchy of poker hands; see "Scoring/Hands, below.)
Once all 25 cards are placed, a final score is calculated based on the 10 hands (5 across, plus 5 down) that were formed.
Use the arrow keys ([+], [-], [*] and [=], with or without [Control]) or a joystick in Port 1 to move the cursor, and press [Return] or joystick [Fire] to place a card.
When the game ends, and your final score is shown, press any key to start a new game.
