Challenging, Addictive but Time Consuming

I’ve been playing this game off and on for about 2-3 years. It’s challenging and relaxing but only when there is significant progress being made. I’ve encountered, like other reviewers, levels where it continually makes it so I cannot win the level. The need to sometimes decide which tiles to choose is sometimes an welcome added challenge, but more often than not it leads to losing the level which will lead to my biggest and hugest complaint of the game: the heart replacement counter. I understand after using up a life that you’ll need to wait a certain amount of time to let it recharge, but the wait of 30 MINUTES PER LIFE is way too long of a wait. When you use all your lives up, sometimes on one level in the span of 10 minutes WITH boosts, you’ll have to wait almost 2+ hours to play with full lives again & that is one of my hugest complaints that I hope will be addressed. The price of boosts too, the in app purchases is also very overpriced. I can understand 99¢ to $4.99 for boosts but a minimum usable amount of diamonds for $4.99 to be able to get anything to use in the game to make progress is slightly unreasonable. I love this game, and I hope that the main issue, the heart regeneration rate, can openly be improved so I may be able to play more often as the game, legitimately, is addicting and invigorating.

I play games to help distract me from the stresses in everyday life, and chose Mahjong Journey because of the beautifully drawn tiles. I enjoyed moving to a new country and discovering new tiles which offer a challenge for several levels until I learn them. Love the mini games and monthly challenge! I can’t wait to see the next country.
However, of all the Mahjong games I’ve played over many years, this one has the highest ratio of boards that I lose. I often use my 5 lives and get nowhere. Yes, my moves can affect the outcome, but getting down to the final two and having one on top of the other happens way too often. Is it intentional to encourage players to buy more? Last year my raise was $2 per month, so that’s not going to happen.
You have created a game that is beautiful and interesting. It’s too bad that it’s not user friendly.
I just played for 5 days and still cannot move to the next level. I don’t play to be stressed & frustrated. What’s the point if making it so hard?
Again I’ve played day after day with no progress, just loss after loss with an occasional win that still gives only one star. Is this actually a psych test to see how long someone will continue to play while continually getting beat up? I keep coming back in hope of a change in my favor and hope this time I won’t return. Perhaps you can make a new version for children. Call me if you do.

Change a few tiny details get 5 stars

My original review was more positive than this one & I gave 4 stars but because I’ve had more than a couple days of experience in playing, I’ve discovered you’ve made some of the levels so impossible to reach 3 stars to progress, that it makes me more frustrated than stress free. The time limit is absolutely impossible to beat on some of the levels. I realize most “free apps” have a goal to get the player so addicted that they eventually spend money at some point but it’s too expensive & is starting to get a bit redundant when I use up all my lives trying to beat ONE level & having to wait half an hour to get a life. I think u should tweak a few things like making the time limit a little less impossible to meet, give more boosters or prize boxes for completing goals & making purchases a little less expensive. if that were to happen, this game would most definitely get 5 stars & id recommend this to all my stressed out or bored friends. I’m just not that secure about positive endorsing at this point. It’s an extremely fun & challenging game & does relieve stress in the beginning but within no time, you’re basically stuck unless u make a purchase. I’m close to deleting because I’ve tried for a week to beat a level that’s just simply impossible to do unless I purchase a booster.
