What's New in Version 1.2
Misc Reliability improvements
I am very pleased that I chose this game. I have had several different Mahjong games both for PC and MAC. This is one of my favorites for layouts, tile sets, backgrounds, sound--everything.
It comes with a default tile set and Background, but you can download more and they are all very interesting. It does not have a full screen option, but has great layouts and the backgrounds and tile sets are easy to see and visually interesting and challenging.
This is a great choice.
My Mahjong wish
If only this game could be Full Screen. What I like best about this Mahjong over any game to compare is there is an option to play with tiles other than the typical chinese calligraphy. What would really rock is if paired tiles rewarded the player with a short animation or small movie. There was a mahjong game I purchased long ago in th 80's that offered the best game I ever played. That game offered the best reward; if won, a short black and white old movie clip played for the winner. It was like winning the Lottery.
It needs lion full screen support.
honestly, the only fault I could find with this game is lack of full screen support for lion. I like to keep all my open apps full screen, and its really sad, that such a great game is lacking this very basic ability. upgrade with full screen support, and I will gladly give it 5 stars. otherwise its an excellent game, and i dont believe there is a better mahjong solitare game out there, for any platform.
