Customer Reviews

Very relaxing game

This is a great digital rendition of Mahjong. The tiles are well inscribed & colourful & the overall feel & play of the game is professional. If I had to gripe anything is the lack of some kewl background musak, but then again we would soon bore of that so really its better with pure natural silence or whatever your playing at the time. Simple, clean & elegant. Buy it & ENJOY

Found again

I had this game many moons ago and am glad I have found it again. I have it on my IMAC and my IPAD and is easily the best of its kind. Crisp graphics but I would like to see the fire breathing dragon again when I clear the board. No full screen is fine on a desktop but a little taxing on the eyes on my IPAD but overall an addictive game. Full marks

Rip Off!

The reviews here are false. The pictures advertising the extras are false. You can't download any of the custom stuff. All you get is what is shown in the fist picture (Siam Layout). The only thing true is the 200 different styles to play. No other custom stuff. Not even any MUSIC!!

Horrible, horrible app. I am sorely disappointed with this one.
