Summary

An Excellent Introduction to Mah-Jong

The Good

If you ever wanted to learn to play Mah-jong and did not have three other players to help you, this game would be a godsend to you. Its very easy to play. There is a tutorial, but the manual is also very good in outlining the objectives of the game and all the tiles and so forth. You also have a variety of opponents to pick from. So if you are a novice, you can have other novice opponents and later move up to more experienced demanding ones. The tiles are very well done and look authentic and the background usually is of some scenery from Hong Kong.

The Bad

As with other DOS games of this era, there is the usual test question before you start, in order to prevent piracy of the game. This is a small problem though.

The Bottom Line

This is the best solo Mah-jong simulation you will probably find right now and it features an easy interface and a variety of opponents for long term play value. If you like or have an interest in Mah-Jong, this is the game for you.
