Editors' Review

This popular tile game is the best of its kind for Mac, with plenty of added features. The object is to pick two identical tiles and clear them away until you've cleared the board. Although that may sound easy, the tiles are arranged in stacks and inventive formations, making a solid strategy necessary.

Having played several PC iterations of this game, we thought the Mac version was good, with OpenGL 3D graphics, several themed tile sets, varying difficulty settings, and a huge number of backgrounds. The classical music uses a low-quality synthesizer, and we recommend shutting it off and playing your own music--we love the classics, but the sound quality leaves a lot to be desired. Overall, this solitaire game is great for killing time and offers enough variation with the tile sets and formations to keep any puzzle-game fan coming back for more.

"A very addictive game indeed>"

December 09, 2009  |  By cnet2

 |  Version: Mah Jong Solitaire 2.41

Pros

Challenging brain teaser. It also provides would-be buyers with a reasonable trial period, Thanks!
Your scores can be seen relative to your last performances, but also relative to the performance of others on the web.

Cons

1. Some of those web guys have such high performances that they seem not too credible...
2. Game settings really influence how well you can play and are not easy to optimize intuitively.

"Pretty nice if not the music and the sadows !"

October 15, 2009  |  By bellamy.michel

 |  Version: Mah Jong Solitaire 2.41

Pros

Pretty nice choice of tiles, schemes and backgrounds.

Cons

Really poor music, even when it's Mozart ! Shadows are too heavy and you don't always notice if two tiles are on the same level or not. You need then to turn le whole set in 3D and but you loose precious seconds !

Summary

Better to have a good surface to drive your mouse if you want to make a good time ! ;) Anyway, a good game which just need to improve the little problems indicated above.

"The best.Exciting racing against the clock!"

October 08, 2009  |  By Zeke Canidae

 |  Version: Mah Jong Solitaire 2.41

Pros

Great tile sets and backgrounds are quite excellent. My favorite Mah Jong! One of many Solitaire 2's tile sets "Plastic Mahjong Tiles"is so GREAT that I find it unsatisfying to use tile sets from competing products. Easy to identify tile symbols.

Cons

Not really a "con" but note that If you want music during the game play iTunes since the music that comes with the game is MIDI & the classical music its to slow for the pace of the game.

Summary

Dedicated Developer/Programmer/CEO quick to improve/update the game demonstrated by the production of the release of this Snow Leopard compatible version in quick step with Apple's release of Snow Leopard. Great support too! AS for the game, just read the 'publisher's description then add zing because it is much more fun than it is modestly described.
