The ancient game of mahjong gets a colorful face-lift as Dragons provides a wonderful atmosphere for playing. Well-textured icons and 800-by-600 full-screen resolution add to the enhancement, and music is available in the full version to further spice things up. The game is rich in choices, since it offers three styles of play with explanations, and dozens of tile selections as well as multiple backgrounds. A profiling option is available to help track player statistics for different tile-layout sets. Randomization of layout and tile selections is another nice feature. Though the game could stand a few more features in the trialware version, Dragons is a worthy consideration for those with the mahjong itch.

What's new in version 8

It includes a player-profile screen displaying 10 statistics along with a graph showing all ranks in all 360 layouts for each player. The program now has a history screen showing all the games played in three categories.
