I agree with Kikoshou, but @ the same time when i play this game most of the time i am @ work so i don't really want it to be hard to the point i am clicking like a mad person. Anywho all in all i love this game & it will be on my favs for a long time. =)
While an alright version of Mahjong, the game breaks itself by having almost no actual difficulty. Players have unlimited use of the shuffle button, and in many cases it's simply easier to shuffle the board then to try and look for that last pair to eliminate. In addition using the shuffle button does nothing to add time to your clock, so it's almost encouraged to spam it if you wish to get a decent time.
Also, the fact that the shuffle can result in zero matches is just lazy programming. A subroutine could easily be put together to make a shuffle only valid if it has 1 or more matches.
For a game that already has so many versions out on the web, this really needed a lot more polish and care for it to stand among them. Remember to do a little research and get a good grasp on what people like about a particular game or genre, and be sure to either do it better, or bring something new to the table to make it unique.
I like it, it's good for passing time.
It's an old classic so you can't go wrong, i like how you've added a shuffle feature so you can actually complete it, but it needs tuning, in the last game i had to shuffle 45 times before a pair was made.
I like the style and artwork but it does go slightly fuzzy if you full screen the game and it could use some ambient music in the background, but it's still a pretty decent version of a classic.
Thank you for review!
Mahjong...You can' t go wrong with mahjong.
It is a great game,
Good that you can shuffe, and the shade system so you know what is in play, and the hint system.
4.5 because you could have added a aniamted winning screen, and aminate when you find a pair (I know it is picking holes in cheese but just something to think about.
Most of the negiavte view seems to be the acual game, which I know you did not make up, this is just a remake of it and a very nice one at that.
