NingPo Mah Jong is a classical Solitaire Mahjong game, similar to the Mahjong Titans game included in Microsoft Windows. The player must dismantle a board comprised of numerous rectangular tiles by removing pairs of tiles with matching symbols; only visible tiles whose longer side is completely unobstructed can be removed. The game features 18 board layouts, 8 different tile artworks and various background patterns. During play, the player can request a hint to highlight two tiles that can be matched, and if the player runs out of available matches he can ask to reshuffle the remaining tiles. Both of these options will give a time penalty, and when all tiles have been removed the total time is used for a highscore table.
