Ultimate Mahjongg 5 is a computerised version of the classic tile matching game from China.

Classic Mahjongg is a tile matching game based on an arrangement of 144 tiles. The objective is to remove all tiles from the playing area by matching up pairs, but only tiles which are visible and have a space to either the left or right can be moved.
That game, and others using different numbers of tiles and different matching rules, are included in this compilation but the basic principle remains, tiles must be matched in order to remove them from the game. There are five different styles of Mahjongg in this game
  • The classic one-player solitaire where a player aims to remove all the tiles. Players can aim to beat their previous best time, or select from other scoring options
  • A two-player game where players take it in turns to match a pair of tiles. A players turn ends when they match two tiles or run out of time. The winner is the player who matched the most tiles.
  • a 'Memory' game where tiles are laid out face down and the player attempts to match them. Tiles are turned face up when selected and are returned to their face down state if they do not match.
  • Waterfalls where the player attempts to remove as many of the 216 tiles from the layout as possible. Any number of tiles can be removed in one click, as long as the tiles are matching and are adjacent (vertically or horizontally).
  • Shisen (aka Four Rivers) is a tile matching variation where the layout is always a flat rectangle. Any tile in the layout can be clicked. Two matching tiles can be removed if they can be connected by drawing an uninterrupted line between the two tiles with 2 turns or less.
  • An on-line play mode is supported where the player joins or hosts a game with friends.
The game keeps statistics on the best times for each separate layout and difficulty setting.

This game also has many features that allow the game to be customised to suit the players taste or mood while they play. These features include :
  • 300 tile sets - these are change the colours of the tiles and the styles of the characters.
  • Over 1250 different backgrounds on which the tiles are displayed, these include plain backgrounds, backgrounds with an Egyptian or a Roman theme to them, and others.
  • 300 different layouts or arrangements of tiles. These include traditional arrangements and many modern ones.
In addition the difficulty levels of the games can be customised, the sounds & music can be played changed or disabled.
