Really do like this game. Could do with better selection of special hands and most definitely no chows option. That would make this more entertaining. Notwithstanding though great graphics, no nonsense game. Hats off to developers. A multiplayer option would be good, would love to play this with daughter when on long trips away!!!
This is a very good representation of the real game of mahjong, as opposed to the many 'pairing' games that seem to exist.
It does the scoring for you, thus removing one of the off putting aspects for people unfamiliar with the game but doesn't help much in explaining how or why the score is arrived at.
The graphics are fine for iPad but the Mac version makes me squint.
What a fantastic game!!! Nothing to dislike, great graphics, brilliant way to spend a bit of down time, fun and very enjoyable. If you like Mahjong, get it and have some fun.
