Mahjong In Poculis Version 4.0 Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

In Poculis has announced the release of version 4.0 of its free solitaire game, Mahjong In Poculis. The update includes 180 new layouts and a new presentation. The memory game challenges players to find and remove identical tiles from the borders of a stack, eventually finding the proper combination of removal to clear the board. Mahjong In Poculis features 300 layouts and 6 scenarios.

"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"

Perfect for mahjong lovers or those who simply enjoy challenging memorization, Mahjong In Poculis 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, but it takes some discipline, strategy, and a little bit of luck to win the 5 medals of each scenario.

Commonly called Shanghai games, Mahjong In Poculis features 300 layouts and 6 fun scenarios, including Christmas, Halloween, Asian, Easter, Wonderland and Future. Each one has its own 50 layouts, graphics, musics, sound effects as well as an easy-to-read statistics panel where scores from scenarios' layouts can be quickly observed. To get users started, a 5 step, in-game tutorial is displayed on first launch. Players may also post their scores and photo on the game's website.

Among Mahjong In Poculis' 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.

Feature Highlights:
* Child, Standard and Expert Mode
* Christmas, Halloween, Asian, Easter, Wonderland and Future scenarios
* 300 Layouts
* 150 Hours to finish the game in expert mode
* Built-in 5 step, in-game Tutorial
* Post Scores and Photo on In Poculis's website
