The good old Microsoft games that many of you know, such as Solitaire, Mahjong (which is now TapTiles), FreeCell or Spider have been given a serious revamp in Windows 8.1. That’s why all of them look so great on your Windows 8 tablets. Now, the beloved Microsoft Solitaire Collection has finally been optimized for Windows 8.1 in the latest update.

The release note for the Microsoft Solitaire Collection Windows Store app say that it is now optimized for Windows 8.1 and that general bug fixes and optimizations have been put in place.
