Mahjong Solitaire is originally a free traditional Chinese game with roots as far as the Ming Dynasty. Originally a game of strategy and judgement, the game has evolved over the years and currently is played across the globe with different variations.
The age of community games has passed, now is the era of mobile games. Games that entertain us for hours together, be it for leisure or simply to pass the time as you wait for your order at the coffee shop! Mahjong Master is the newest sensation in the universe of mobile gaming. The oriental Taipei feel of the game, draws you to a new world in itself and unknowingly you have spent hours matching tiles after tile.
The game in itself is based on a very simple concept; match tiles to open more hidden object. Mahjong solitaire opens with a very appealing Kyodai feel to it. The simple but intuitive interface couples with the soft background score to keep you hooked. The welcome screen is a simplistic interface which is easy to understand. It has just the bare minimal buttons required for game play; ‘Play Game’, ‘Connect’ and ‘More Games’. Most often you will end up using just the ‘Play Game’ button. There are smaller buttons for sound and music control at the bottom of the screen. You may also use the ‘Share’ button to share the game with your friends. A ‘Like’ button is provided to show your appreciation for the game creators.
Once you enter the actual gaming interface, you are greeted with four arenas named after different seasons; Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. This is consistent with the Shanghai Chinese culture of attaching symbolic meaning to seasons. Once inside an arena, the game presents various levels in order of difficulty. Subsequent levels open as you clear the lower levels. There are 312 levels for each arena, distributed over 13 panes! The number 13 is considered lucky in the Orient! Attention to detail of the makers of Mahjong Solitaire Titans is really impressive!
Actual game-play involves picking out the matching tiles and opening up more tiles. The Mahjongg game ends with successful matching of all the tiles in the pile. The game is lost if there are several non-matching tiles remaining. Again, consistent with the theme of the game, the dimensions have various Chinese symbols on them. One must play with full concentration or the chances of mismatched tiles are high. The game provides peppy haptic feedback and a cheery click on successful matches! The trick is to first match the tiles on top of piles so that the lower ones are opened up. Developing your own strategy and calculations will win you the game.
