Mahjong In Poculis Version 3.5 Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

In Poculis has announced the release of version 3.5 of its free solitaire game, Mahjong In Poculis. The update includes a new mode designed for children. 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 three modes, a tutorial, and 120 levels.

Commonly called Shanghai games, Mahjong In Poculis 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:
  • Child, 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 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.

Language support:
  • US English, French, Spanish and Italian
Minimum Requirements:
  • Mac OS X Version 10.4 Tiger, 10.5 Leopard or later
  • Windows 7, Vista, XP and 2000
  • Universal Binary for PowerPC and Intel
  • 53 MB Hard Drive space
Mahjong In Poculis 3.5 is available for free. Players who enjoy the game are asked to donate to encourage future development.
