◉This is the famous Zhongyuan Mahjong (Solitaire)!
(zMahjong Solitaire is its abbreviated name.)
This is the game that you purchase only once but will keep playing forever.
This game demands huge observations, great patience and challenging spirit! Although only 10% people can finally complete the game, yet tens of thousands of people are challenging and enjoying it every day!
Here are a few user reviews:

***Demo of How to Play in Youtube
Clear the board by removing two same tiles each time as quickly as possible.
***How to remove
Condition 1: If two same tiles are on the same row or column and there are no other tiles between them, tap to remove them directly.
Condition 2: If one tile can be moved to a new position where Condition 1 can be met by this tile and the other same tile, move this tile first and then tap the other to remove these two same tiles.
The game proceeds with no hints, no help and no re-try. There is no any assistance to you but your hard observation. You can press the “End” button to see remaining removable pairs, but the game will end at the same time.
Ratings and Reviews
Good, room for improvement
This is a challenging game, but very enjoyable. It does need some improvements, in my opinion. The game needs a pause function, so you can leave the game without the clock continuing to tick. It would also be good if you could save and continue a game at a later date. Also, it would be helpful if there was some sort of notification when no moves remain, and perhaps the option to randomly shuffle the remaining tiles at that point. There are no instructions included with the game, though it is pretty intuitive and easy to figure out if you look at the sample boards on the game description. I'm hopeful these improvements will be made; the game would then rate 5 stars for me.
Stll some glitches.
This is surely the best Mahjong game, but there remain some minor annoyances. The most notable is the inability to close the achievement (scores) window after a win, which necessitates a forced quit. The iPad version has, however, eliminated this bug, and also has additional features that have been sought in this version, such as notification that there are no possible additional moves. The inability to pause the clock still lacks in both versions, however.
Notwithstanding the issues, the gane is to be recommended.
This is the Taiwan version of the ubiquitous matching game with Mahjong tiles. I have purchased it both for my Macs & my iPads. It is a delight for puzzlers.
I would appreciate some enhancements though:
1) Pause the clock when the game is not running.
2) A queue of already matched tiles. At my age I can barely remember my name much less what tiles I have matched in a renewed saved game.
3) Alert the player when there are no matches to be made. (P.S. do not shuffle the remaining tiles as has been suggested. Sometimes the player can't clear the board. That's an element of the game. It is simple enough to start a new game)
4) Clear the leaders list of obvious cheats. No one completes this game in four and a half minutes.
