Editors' review

With its basic concept of colorful tiles strategically placed on a playing board, Mariko is similar to Mah Jongg. Mad Data's Mariko 1.0 marks a good-looking yet ill-explained and unstable attempt to bring the classic Chinese game into the electronic world. The fairly rich graphics resemble a classic Mariko board and tiles, but the game's controls are a nightmare to manipulate. The tutorial includes rough descriptions that make it difficult to grasp the rules on a first or even second read. Unfortunately, you can't return to the tutorial for another look once you start the game. We actually failed to find an intuitive way out of the game at all, managing to end it only with help from the Task Manager. Stability problems will probably squash any remaining affection you have for the game.
