Mahjongg / Shanghai involves an arrangement of 144 tiles, which are both alongside and on top of each other, and consist of either 2 or 4 of each design. The objective is to remove them all by matching up pairs, but only tiles which are visible and have a space to either the left or right can be moved.

This implementation has 3 different board layouts and an optional timer for anything up to 900 seconds. There are different background designs and tile sets, as well as five different pointer designs, an oriental-inspired soundtrack, and the ability to save and load a game. A wind effect passes over the screen when you have only one minute left.
