    When it comes to mah-jong, I am very old-fashioned. I like my tiles to look Chinese, the layouts to be playable, and the experience to be relaxing. I don’t much care for all the new-fangled variations you get with, say, Great Cities mah-jong, and I can live without fancy power ups. Which is perhaps I like this game so much.

    The first thing you notice about this game is the music. Oh boy is it wrong for this game! Sounds like you should be doing aerobics to it. But it deceptive. The actual rounds have no music at all, only some of the most delightful background sounds of waves, birds etc. Well worth the blare at the end of each round.

    The game looks good. Nothing fancy, but pleasant, and there are 8 views to choose from, but you must unlock them with play. There are 3 tile types; 2 x Chinese and one Jewelled set. There are 4 power ups if you want them – hammer, whirlwind, magnifier, bomb. You have the number of tiles and the number of possible matches up the top of the screen. There are a lot of layouts – I didn’t see them all in the demo – and none of them look like the crazy unplayable ones. The tiles are large and clear, so you can always see what you’re doing.

    The one complaint I have about the design is the auto-shuffle. I’d like to have to do the board again until I get it right.

    As well as mah-jong, there are 2 other mini-games, which appear seemingly at random, but not often. There is an excellent little HO game where you must find a number of the objects, indicated by their pix below. The second is the swap tiles mini-game. I like this touch of something other.

    This is a nice little game, well thought out and very relaxing.

    I Recommend This Game!
