    The ancient tile-matching obsession returns to tantalize strategic minds with three intense new action-puzzle games.
    Challenge Shanghai's intricate structures in a multimedia spectacular of film, video and audio rewards! Plus in Solitaire, 2-Player or Tournament mode.


    4 Tile-Matching Games THE GREAT WALL
    Venture along The Great Wall where earthly forces challenge your mind. It's you against a wall of tiles - snapping pairs off to dismantle its mighty structure. While the law of gravity holds true...and tiles fall as lower ones are removed.

    ACTION SHANGHAI
    Prove your Shanghai superiority in Action Shanghai where time dares you to clear the screen...before additional tiles appear. Speed is a factor as stacks of tiles grow higher and block those that were once free.

    CLASSIC SHANGHAI
    Match your tiles traditionally, one pair at a time, to clear a variety of intricate layouts - or put a spin in your Shanghai and play with all tiles face-down in Contemplation Mode.

    BEIJING
    Open your mind to Beijing and brave a single level of tiles with the complexity of many. Slide entire rows of tiles to make a match and create a new situation each time. One wrong match and a triple-scoring more disappears...and a whole new addiction appears.
