It records your statistics, including your points, your win percentage and your number of straight wins.

- “Echigohana” card suit design -(*ii)
This is our first time to introduce the Echigohana card suit design!
(The “Hachihachihana” card suit design is the most popular design, so this app includes both the “Echigohana” and “Hachihachihana” designs.)
This visual design is a bit different from Hachihachihana, the defining feature of Echigohana is that there are Chaff cards that depict classical Japanese Waka and entirely gold and silver colored.
- Game Center -
Your points, win percentages, and number of straight wins will all be registered on the worldwide Leaderboards which contain the highscore rankings.
You earn Achievement awards when certain conditions are met.
And also, you can extend friend invites to your opponents and invite friends. This app fully supports Game Center!
- iPhone4′s Retina display -
When it comes down to it, the best part of Hanafuda is the beautiful card design!
This app supports iPhone4′s high resolution Retina display!
- Beautiful Japanese-style background music -(*iii)
There are about 20 different background music tracks(BGMs), including Japanese Festival Music composed using Japanese Instruments. The Japanese instruments used include the Japanese zither (koto), the three-stringed banjo (shamisen), the vertical bamboo flute (shakuhachi) and the drum.
This app also includes a custom playlist function that allow you to select your favorite BGMs and order them as you like.
