The West simplified the popular Chinese game MahJong into a single player Tile Matching game in the spirit of Solitaire. Both very popular games improve cognitive activity and inspired the development of MahJong Therapy.
PahJong takes it to the next level. Stacks of Tiles are replaced by Topology representing deep-oceans on up to mountain-peaks. The stagnant Tile images are replaced by Birds in motion.
PahJong also adds several Game Enhancers that help complete the process of removing all the Birds and associated Topology to win the Game. It is the perfect game for all ages and convenient for spanning commercial breaks.
The Game's Help Pages will explain all the details. There is a SHUFFLE option to re-randomize the birds, an EARTHQUAKE option which flattens the topology exposing more birds, and a FREEZE option to slow the clock which eats away at your Score and Bonus. The most useful and fun option is RADAR because there is a Nighttime period where the Birds disappear into the darkness.
Each of the Game Enhancers require Credits. These are earned on successful completion of clearing all Birds and Topology. Achievement Credits are awarded for End Score, Bonus Peak, and Completion Time. Enhancers also affect your Bonus, so use them sparingly. If you run out, don't worry, sympathy Credits are awarded on first activation in a given day.
Even without the Enhancers, PahJong is very fun, competitive, and relies on the same luck found in Solitaire. Stretch your brain, enjoy the chirpy-screeching bird sounds, and HURRY. The clock is ticking.
I enjoy the birds gently flying and their sounds while trying to match them. The extra features are a real help once you get familiar with them.
