Just in case you still need a little push RE: buying Pocket Card Jockey for 3DS

I've got Pocket Card Jockey on the brain, I know. Hell, it could be argued I've gone far that point since I first picked up the Japanese version of the game--called SolitiBa in that part of the world--just over three years ago.

After all, in that time I've published a review of this Game Freak-made 3DS eShop title, a guide that offers up advice on how to improve your results and a slew of other posts about it.

Something I haven't expended much text on, though, it Pocket Card Jockey's soundtrack. It's sublime--and that's not an overstatement.

Don't believe me? Check out its best tune, "Funky Monkey Style."

Pretty awesome, right? Admittedly, it's probably not what you imagined when you learned that SolitiBa-slash-Pocket Card Jockey combined horse racing and solitaire.

Go Ichinose is the man who composed it. Name ring a bell? Makes sense, especially if you're a Pokémon fan. (He's had a hand in creating music for almost all of that series' games, plus the GameBoy Advance gem known as Drill Dozer.)

Now that you're smitten, come back to this post and let me know in its comments section how much you love Pocket Card Jockey after you've spent a couple of hours (or more) with it.
