Mah Jong Adventures is a board game in which you need to match identical tiles in order to eliminate them from the board. However, for a tile to be selected, it should have no other tiles on top and at least one free side, left or right. Tiles need to be identical, except for the seasons and flower tiles, which can be matched with any of their group. The objective of the game is to find and match the gold tiles to complete a level. The games are timed, so the faster you complete levels, the higher your score will be. The game includes Undo (to reverse your last move), Hints (which highlight a possible match), and Shuffle (which rearranges the tiles in case you cannot make any other move). However, if you use any of these last two options, you will be deducted points from your final score.
The game includes two modes: Classic and Adventure. In Classic mode, you can customize your mahjong game completely to your liking and skills level, while in Adventure, you will travel around the world playing mahjong games with different layouts in order to uncover a treasure. In both modes, you will be able to select the tileset, and music (there are multiple soundtracks). There is an additional mode which allows you to create and play your own layouts. Unfortunately, the game offers very simple graphics and sounds.
To sum up, if you like mahjong games, Mah Jong Adventures is a nice one if you do not mind the poor graphics.
- Three modes
- Lots of help options
- Very simple graphics and sounds
