IMG Reviews Emperor's Mahjong
11:00 AM | Galen Wiley | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a review of MacPlay's The Emperor's Mahjong, based on the popular ancient Chinese board game Mahjong. The review covers everything from graphics to gameplay, and is a definite must-read for those interested in purchasing the game for themselves. Here's a brief excerpt from the article:

The game is traditionally played with 144 tiles and four players. Emperorís Mahjong uses all the traditional tiles but in a single player experience. The seven tile categories are Character, Ball, Bamboo, Dragon, Wind, Season and Flower. The first three categories are numbered from 1-9 with 4 of each number while there are 4 Compass tiles and 3 Dragon tiles and again 4 of each. The last two groups, Season and Flower, have 4 distinct tiles each. Graphically the tiles are represented well with three different choices of how they appear during the game. The tiles are arranged in a pattern stacked atop each other four high and offset from one another. Your object is to select matching tiles, which are free either on the left or the right, eventually removing all the tiles on the board. This sounds a lot easier than it is.
For more information, be sure to read the full review.
