Pocket Gamer recently released a review of Mahjong for iPod, one of several titles available for Apple's portable multimedia device. The popular tile matching game managed a score of 6 out of 10 from Pocket Gamer.
From the review:
It's well presented enough, with thought having gone into the different game modes. But where Mahjong falls down – for much the same reasons as iPod Bejeweled – is in the control mechanism. Where you'd prefer four-way digital movement, instead you have to use the scroll wheel, which jumps between selectable tiles as they appear on the board.The full review is available at the link provided below.
Pocket Gamer: Mahjong Review
In other words, if you want to match two tiles at opposite corners, you have to scroll through every other selectable tile in between, which is tedious. Admittedly, leaving out the tiles that are blocked does make the game a bit easier for beginners, but whatever your level, you'll be biting your knuckles in frustration at the unwieldy controls all too soon.
