6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Independent software developer In-Poculis recently announced In-Poculis Mahjong. 3.1, an update to the free solitaire game for Mac OS X and Windows. The title is a memory game where players have to select identical tiles to make them disappear. The main constraint is that they have to be on the layout's borders. All of the Mahjong pieces must be cleared to win. In-Poculis Mahjong features 120 levels and 6 themes.

Commonly called Shanghai games, In Poculis Mahjong features 120 levels and 6 fun scenarios, including Christmas, Halloween, Asian, Easter, Wonderland and Future. Each one has its own levels, graphics, musics, sound effects as well as an easy-to-read statistics panel where scores from scenarios' levels can be quickly observed. To get users started, a 5 step, in-game tutorial can be displayed on demand. Players may also post their scores and photo on the game's website.

Feature Highlights:
  • Standard and Expert Mode
  • Christmas, Halloween, Asian, Easter, Wonderland and Future scenarios
  • 120 levels
  • Built-in 5 step, in-game Tutorial
  • Post Scores and Photo on In-Poculis's website
"We tried all the Mahjong games we could to extract our prefered features" said Bernard Lerat, co-founder of In-Poculis. "However it was not enough. We wanted to add something really new to the gameplay and decided to change the scoring by the use of combos. You always have to select identical tiles but you have to evaluate many possibities to be sure to create straights or four of a kind"

Among In Poculis Mahjong's most prominent features is its combo feature to gain more points. Other than beating a particular time for clearing the board, players earn points with combos such as four of a kind (two identical pairs) or straights. If the player can no longer match a pair, the game board automatically reshuffles the tiles.
