Love this game

I really enjoy this version out of all the mahjong games; which are many. I admit I haven’t ventured into hard games at all and medium very seldom. I find the easy games difficult enough, especially with the time constraint. I am not complaining as this is my problem but I do wish you had a no time version only as I have Parkinsons and therefore a tremor which when stressed exacerbates:). Now understand I wish it for ease of playing and enjoyments’ sake only. I do not expect nor ask for it.
The game is great. I find it fun, challenging, unique and imaginative. The tiles are attractive and easy to see. I love the idea behind finding all the specific tiles within the time required,(though see above note; notwithstanding). Nonetheless, nice job guys. This is, I repeat the BEST Mahjong game on the market.
Thank you

After 10 years, still awesome

I’ve been playing Venice Mystery on my Macs for ten years, originally downloaded through Big Fish Games, and even if I leave it for a year or two, I always come back to it.

I thought I’d search to see if it was available for iPad, and sure enough, there it was!

It is much easier to play on the iPad, but the only thing I miss is the UI artwork on the desktop version (if you get a chance, take a look).

I would also love the ability to lose the shine from the playing pieces, or—tall order—have the ability to use more detailed tiles (like in the desktop version). That would be awesome!

After all these years of enjoying this game, it’s nice to see it still doing so well.

Ten years

And they still haven’t fixed it. The game play is smooth, very good. But you finish the classic levels find all the parts and the game crashes. You do not get even a bland congratulations screen. It did this on my iMac and it still does it now.

And now that I’ve finished all the levels, here is a more complete review. The game is gorgeous. Even the classic levels, and the new tile sets are eye popping. Some of them make quick play very hard. The classic levels are the most fun since they offer some mini-games interspersed between the regular matching levels. The picture puzzles get quite hard by the end.

You can set the game to be as hard or as easy as you like, it offers a timed and an untimed mode and four levels of difficulty.

But. . . As mentioned before, the game crashes at the end of the classic levels. It speaks well of the devs that they noticed the review and reached out for more information hoping to find a fix, but if they haven’t found one in ten years I don’t think they’re going to. It is apparently only a problem for a few people.

The other major problem is mentioned in another review. The score of the last level in all tile sets doesn’t get counted. If you really obsess about scoring you’re going to be unhappy with this game.

Nevertheless it’s a good game

Hello and thanks for your feedback. We are very sorry about this crash you had and we are still puzzled (for years) why this is happening to some very few customers. We heart about this issue for over a long time but we never found the problem because we simply couldn't reproduce it. Maybe you are willing to share some more details when this crash happen and we get a step closer fixing it. You can reach us by email or simply hit the contact button on the options menu. Sorry again! Kathrin from Gamgo Games
