Shanghai Pocket Essentials is a modern, solitaire version of the same named ancient oriental game, based on Activision's Shanghai Mah-Jongg series. You can create your own layouts, up to five levels deep, right on your handheld. Choose from over 100 of Activision's standard Shanghai layouts categorized in six groups: Kid Layouts, Quickies Advanced, Quickies Normal, Standard Advanced, Standard Easy, and Standard Normal. Choose from one of four play modes including the standard Activision Shanghai and Contemplation (tiles are upside down). There are two levels of difficulty. When you complete a game (remove all tiles), Shanghai will keep track of your best times and includes the play mode and layout that brought you the win.
Version 1.2 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
