I am a casual player and to me Mahjong has always been a casual game to relax with. Knowing that it is timed and having to rush to beat the clock really killed this game for me!! Why not make it the gamer's choice to play it timed or not. Having it set so you can take it off the timed feature after you beat it, does not make sense to me. Good luck first timers!
If you like Timed games this is for you, if not pass this one up!!!
Once my mother gleefully ripped the festive gift wrapping, I got a chance to play with the game. The graphics and gameplay was similar to the one I played online with the exception of the 3D representation of the puzzle cube. The goal is to get rid of all the tiles that make up the cube by selecting to matching cubes that are not being blocked by other tiles.
The simplicity of the game is what makes it fun and addictive. However, I'm quite disappointed in how they implemented the controls. Instead of taking advantage of the stylus and touch screen, the developer choose to control the entire game (except the menu navigation) using the hard control (joystick, bumpers and buttons). For example,rotating the puzzle cube requires the use of the bumper (L1 or L2) and the rotation of the joystick. Although this is probably intuitive for those who are used to console controllers and in my opinion, it would have been more intuitive to use the stylus and touch screen to allow the user to select the tiles and rotate the cube (or use the bumper buttons for the rotation) with the 3d screen used to show the selected tiles instead of the entire cube. This method of controls would allow my mother, who has arthritis, to play a longer because it would require less strain on her finger joints.
With that said, the game is enjoyable and should provide hours of fun. As this was purchased for my mother, I wish the controls were better implemented for ease of use.
Went through the first 20 games and now am playing the Classic Mode. I am glad that I spent 18.99 for the game for that is my 3rd 3ds game that I've purchased since I bought my console. I bought Zelda and Sims Pets and have played Mahjong 5 times longer than the other games.
Also I went to Chinese school over 51 years ago and still recognize a lot of the characters which makes it easier to play. All in all...I've enjoyed the game very much.
