MahJong generates random tile arrangements that gives you infinite game possibilities for this Chinese-inspired favorite.
Featuring 10 different tile and table sets, each tile is a delightful, hand-designed work of art, showcased in a 3d view with board rotation and zoom to capture every angle.
Select and match pairs of open tiles to remove them from the board, exposing layers of tiles below for more matching. The goal is to match every pair to fully clear the board. Outstanding music completes the experience that will transport you eastward.

My first and most serious complaint is that I couldn't find a comfortable viewing angle. With each new game the view is then reset and for some reason starts by rotating the board at a shallow angle around the tiles. I'd waste about a minute slowly rotating the board back to an overhead view. Compounding view issues is that despite the game being 3D, internal rendering appears to be effectively fixed at about 800x600 resolution. Though there's a fullscreen option, that just causes blurring and aliasing.
As far as gameplay goes, tile layout is totally random and you're unable to select a preferred arrangement. The handful of available arrangements are of the sort that clump the tiles in the center, which to me feels like an attempt to justify the camera. I found the availalable tilesets mostly chaotic making tile identification more difficult than it should be. Some are slightly transparent, which is neat, but unnecessary. Since tile edges are poorly deliniated you'll end up frequently clicking on a tile that's blocked since it's difficult to judge depth from the overhead view, which is the only way to see all the tiles at once.
I was drawn in by the screenshots and stills do look good. The game, however, plays poorly.
Looked like this could have been a good Mahjong game, but not even half way through I was unable to finish even one game before it wanted me to buy it. Tried again with the same results. Think there is a time limit on how far you can get before it wants you to purchase it. Developer should consider letting you at least finish a game to decide if you like it.
bought the license still can’t play the game
I bought the license for my disabled husband to play the game. It still cuts him off half way through. I have tried to contact both the app store and Bank Games to no avail. I am starting to think this is just a way to rip people off. I won’t make this mistake again and buy anything from the App Store.
