Mahjong Math is a super challenging math puzzle game that will leave your heart racing and your head pounding! Simple two digit addition and subtraction problems are on the tiles. These are the types of math problems that anybody should be able to do or learn to do quickly in their head. You just calculate the result and find a tile that has the same result.
BEWARE: This is mahjong like you have never played it before. Solving a single puzzle can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours. The more you play the quicker you get! With 168 puzzle layouts you will be a math whiz before you know it. Each puzzle has random tile orders so you can play again and again with it never being the same.
Mahjong Math has a unique scoring system that rewards you for speed of individual matches and a star based system with more stars for more points. This is a great game for children or adults who want to challenge their mind and keep their math skills sharp.
Because of the difficulty of this game, this is the one EnsenaSoft game where we recommend you try the Free version before you buy to make sure it is something you truly enjoy and are able to do. The Free version only has 56 puzzles and contains some ads.

Pulls no punches, but perhaps it should
The app developers don't pull any punches in their description of Mahjong Math - They tell you right up front that it is HARD, and to try the "lite" and free version first. The problem is that this is billed as a math game, where it's really a memory game.
Solving the math is the easy part. The challenge is then solving all the other visible tiles to try to find a match for a tile/solution. And, of course, since this is Mahjong, the match may not even be visible, meaning you'll just have to move on to the next tile; one which, sadly, you already solved while trying to see if it matches the previous tile. Unfortunately you've probably forgotten the answer to this new tiles while solving all the others. Arrrggghh.
The only way to solve an entire puzzle without absolute tedium is to memorize the solution to multiple tiles, and then try to find a match for any one of those tiles. But I'd be in awe of the person who can keep all this in their head at one time.
Pencil and paper would help, but that seems against the spirit of an iOS game. Better would be a mode which allowed you to enter the solution onto the tile itself so that you only have to solve each tile once. Granted, it would be much easier, but it sure would open the game to more potential buyers.
And, more importantly, it would return to truly being a "math" game rather than one of memorization. As it is, for most of us, we'll just be solving the exact same, simple math problems over and over; and that just isn't fun.
This is hard. I will keep trying. Will not delete. It will not get the better of me.
Cluttered. Hard to play.
