Challenging board games have always been a favorite of people looking to stimulate their minds. While most of us would agree that a game of chess is the best way to reinvigorate our grey cells, some of our Chinese friends may differ by pointing out Mahjong. The ancient game of Mahjong has its roots in China and is essentially a complex game that harps on calculations and strategy. Now with computers ruling the roost, you do not need to take a ticket to Beijing to play the game as applications like Arcade Mahjong 1.0 will bring the excitement right onto your screens and challenge you to test your wits.
Arcade Mahjong 1.0 boast of a neat interface and one can simply understand the elementary controls within minutes. While it does not come with a huge set of options, it does offer the user a choice to choose his play style. If you are not familiar with Mahjong then you would soon realize the game requires great patience and skill. The objective involves knocking the identical items that are unlocked in order to remove them. The main options in the game are present in the bottom pane. The player can quickly visualize the time lapsed or the score he has achieved from the lower bar. In case a player wants to take a break from the game then he has the option to pause the game and restart it again at his will.
Arcade Mahjong 1.0 can be termed as a well thought out game that retains the edginess of the age old game and is yet very easy to play on the system. The game earns a decent score of four points for its seamless controls and overall aesthetics but needs to add an extensive help file for benefit its players who are novice at Mahjong.
