    BASED ON DEMO  


    This version of mahjong has its good points, but it is really only so-so of games in the genre. The graphics are cartoonish and not at all attractive. The interface is not intuitive. There are no points system, but in timed mode you can choose the limit. For instance, you can choose 10 min, 15 min, or 1 hour.

    One thing that nearly drove me nuts was the music and the sound effects each time you got a pair. It sounded like a pinball arcade, or slot machines I’ve played. The very essence of non-relaxing.

    It does stick very close to the theme though, and you get a choice of 3 Halloween related tiles, much trickier than the more familiar ones. You also get a great number of layouts and backgrounds to choose from. All in keeping with the mood. Many of the layouts are just for fun, they are not ‘doable’, but you can change your set up to exclude unwinnable layouts. You can have either timed or untimed mode.

    In all, it has to be said that unless you have a real desire for a spooky-themed game, I wouldn’t recommend this game.
