Version Differences

As with every game that came with it, Windows XP revamped the icon.

The Windows ME/XP version introduced difficulty levels, with lower levels having fewer suits.

There is no sound in the Plus! 98 version. Cards also fly into the rows much faster. The deck is not present in the Plus! 98 version.

Instead of a box showing the score and moves as seen in the Windows ME/XP version, a status bar appears at the bottom of the screen in the Plus! 98 version. This status bar shows more information than the ME/XP version, such as the number of suits removed and the number of rows left to clear.
