Customer Reviews


I owned an app by this name way back in the Mac OS9 days. It's so much alike that it may be the same developer. It was very good then and this app is far better.

I do wonder, tho, if the deck is stacked, so to speak. It seems like I am winning far more games than I expect I should. Or maybe I've gotten smarter over time, but I doubt it.

I'm glad it's not a full screen app. I use a 30" monitor and it would be hard to play at that size. I wouldn't mind it being a bit larger than it is, but am happy with it as is.

Nice job.

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.

This is one of the best mahjong games that I have played. It will definitely become my favorite, I'm sure.
I really like the timing and score keeping that several other mahjongs for Mac do not have. It makes the game much more exciting when you are competing against your times and scores.
Very nice layout, good choices for backgrounds, and clear tile set.
Good job, Shanghai Mahjong creators!
