No game system is complete without a version of Shanghai. 3DO owners can now heave a sigh of relief - and get to work.

Vom Suchtfaktor her steht Shanghai definitiv auf einer Stufe mit Tetris. Wer einmal angefangen hat, kann nicht mehr aufhören. Es geht immer noch nichts über die klassische Spielart, aber auch die anderen Modi der 3DO-Umsetzung, “The Great Wall‘ und ‘Beijing“, halten Euch lange Zeit in Bann. Warum aber die Entwickler auf eine Speicheroption für Highscores und Rekordzeiten verzichtet haben, ist mir schleierhaft, denn so eine Rekordjagd mit Freunden macht doch unheimlich Spaß. Bei der Musik hat Activision kräftig in die asiatische Soundkiste gegriffen, dazu seht Ihr im Hintergrund wunderschöne Digi-Bilder der chinesischen Mauer. Shanghai: Triple-Threat ist eines der besten 3DO-Spiele auf dem Markt, unbedingt besorgen!

This is an entertaining puzzler that requires more strategy than Tetris. If you've never played the PC game, you'll enjoy being shanghaied by Triple Threat.

On the 3DO, Shanghai: Triple Threat is probably the first title of a long series, with other games in development such as Shanghai: Great Moments. The game of Shanghai is based on the Mah-Jong tiles, but this is the only reference to the chinese game. Shanghai's rules are of a dramatic simplicity. To win, you must remove all tiles from the board. The only rule you must remember is that you can remove tiles by pairs when it is possible. A tile is removable if there is no other tile above it or if it is possible to move the tile to the left or to the right. You can not think of something easier to use, but winning is not that easy!

A rather conservative puzzle game, but a load of fun, alone or with a friend, Shanghai Triple Threat offers a puzzle game simply for the sake of solving a puzzle game.
