Hearts (Microsoft, Windows, 1993)
Another of the Microsoft card games, and the first one with multiplayer support. Still, it didn't quite gain the popularity of its sister games.
This game has a debug mode, but it's a bit harder to enable here because it requires editing the Windows registry.
Open a registry editor and go to key
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Hearts (create any sub-keys that don't exist). Add a REG_SZ named ZB and set its value to 42 (in Windows for Workgroups 3.11, add "ZB=42" to the [Hearts] section of win.ini).
After having done this, start the game and you'll be able to use the keyboard combination Ctrl + Shift + Alt + F12 to see the cards of your competitors. This was probably used to test the game engine and possibly also the AI.
The Windows XP version changes the icon.
