MAHZOONG is based on the classic Chinese game. The goal is to eliminate all blocks from the board. Playing this game is very easy and fun. You can eliminate only paired free blocks. The block is free when at least two adjacent neighbouring sides of it are free, i.e. they have no neighbours on at least two adjacent sides. Combine matching blocks with similar blocks. There is also the possibility to re-shuffle the blocks if there are no moves left, and a number of hints you can use. Also there is the bomb power-up which can remove any block pair.


I expected to lose when the time ran out, but it's only a score thing here.

Nice game, i like the music BUT... i took 1,5 star for? Well:
1) Description, telling people this game is based on mahjong gets them off on the actual rules... till like level 2,5 i was scrubbing my head thinking WT* why can't i make a match with those 2... give a small tutorial example of allowed/dissalowed matches when you first run the game, yes i know there is the "how to play button" but it only shows the regular mahjong style blocking, not showing the blocks you could remove there and you cannot here (first level has 2 at the beggining)
2) Scoring... you give sooo many hints/bombs/time on initial levels and them BAM you cut that down to near zero, while at the same time NOT raising the bonus for not using them, that's a bit of a downside for me, because there are situations where you have no more moves, there is no shuffle button (or at least i didn't see one), and you're forced to use a bomb... Perfectionist would start over, someone else would just enjoy the game and say the heck with score...
3) megalomania, soooo common nowadays, instead of using a scoring of 1,2,3 etc, you use 10, 20, 30? WTH FOR!?! explain this to me...
4) time target isn't based on actual difficulty of the setting, which is another downside for me, since there are sets where you just click click click - TADA i'm done, and there are ones where you seriously have to look for a match each time.
5) level exit (quit started level) doesn't require confirming which may ruin scoring...

Otherwise the game is fun with a nice twist to the orifinal rules
