I used to have a multi-version solitaire game, (I can't remember whether it was on my PC [it definitely wasn't my mac] or Phone or some other format), which had a particular version of solitaire I really want to play again.

The only problem is, I can't remember the name of it, and am unable it track it down.

I'm fairly certain it was played with two decks, laid out in 8 columns with forming the foundations and a further 4, 5 or 6 rows below that, (the tableau laid out in a grid and all face up) and a stock pile.

The foundation piles were built down in suit, and you could moves cards either by placing them in an empty gap in the row above, or by placing them on a card one pip lower on the same row or the row above.

Cards were fed from the stock pile onto the bottom row whether into a space or on a card one pip lower.

Does anyone recognise my crappy description, and if so do they know what it's called? (If you know of an iPhone app with this variant in, I will love you for ever!)

ETA As I've rather failed to describe it adequately, I've mocked up an approximation of the game lay out using another solitaire game and photoshop. Please click below the cut to see it.

The top card of the stock pile would be played in to the empty gap, a. Card b could be played on card c and so on.

Hopefully that's a bit clearer. (One point, I've put in five rows, but it could be four, five or six. I'm fairly certain it's not seven rows.)
