Mahjong World Contest
Different and challenging
I love Mahjong games and I don't think I've come across one like this before. The demo just flew by.
The levels are grouped into various stages of the tournament and you start as a candidate. Each level has 3 goals to achieve, thereby 3 stars to go for. Goals are varied, earn X points, remove all tiles, complete the level in X moves, find X golden tiles, finish within X time. It does get challenging to meet all 3 goals.
If this is the shape of things to come in the other groups, then this will be an amazing game with a strong replayability factor.

Superb Mahjong nothing bad to report!
I love Mahjong but I only actually owned two other mj games, (Quest 2 and Quest 3 balance of life) until I played this one, which I have subsequently purchased after playing the demo.
The music is restful & pleasant & to be honest Id be happy to leave the game running in the background, just to listen to the music! The game play is excellent, a no nonsense mahjong tournament with 3 challenges per board. Some easy, some you need to play a couple of times or so to get all 3 stars for the board at the same time, and a couple of really tough ones! Ive just started on the 2nd tournament so Im expecting the challenges to get more difficult as I go along.
If you love MJ and arent bothered about plots or intriguing storylines (there arent any on this game) then you will almost certainly enjoy this one :-)

Beautiful Mahjong Game
This is a beautiful, uncomplicated mahjong game. The music is very soothing. It's one of those "let me escape from the trials and tribulations of the day" games where you can relax and just play mahjong.
There is a contest aspect to it. The goal is to gain 6 levels of ability, starting with "Blooming Lotus" and ending with "Grand Master." There are also 12 trophys to be earned.

Couldn't get enough!
I really liked this mahjong game. It was fast paced and achievable. I like to be challenged but I don't want to play the same level endlessly before accomplishing the goal. This game gave me that. Just enough thinking, replaying and advancing to keep me coming back for more. Fun, fun.

The game is like a hidden object with the challenge of a puzzle. I have always wanted to learn how to play Mahjong and this was a good start and FUN.

Great mahjong challenge!
If you like the challenge of solitary mahjong, then you are really going to enjoy Mahjong World Contest. You will take on many, many different puzzles and challenges along the way, from timing, to taking out certain tiles, to clearing the board in less than so many moves. Each puzzle offer three different challenges, and you earn a star for each one you complete. This is one great strategy game, but I have yet to find something in a casual mahjong game that looks as fun as the games they played in Kung Fu Mahjong, but this one will keep you on your toes. The light sounding music in the background is what you would commonly hear at your local Jade Lantern restaurant. It might explain why I was craving Egg Drop Soup, General Tso chicken, and China Black Tea while playing this game.
The puzzles lay out in many kinds of setups, even a yin-yang. This is the kind of game mahjong players can really get into, and with such great graphics, there most likely will be a sequel. This is simply solitary mahjong at its best. So BFG, where is our casual Go game? For those whome have seen or read Hikaru No Go, you know there is no casual Go game, not the way they play.

I am a huge fan of Mahjong games, never get bored of them.
In this one for each level you have 3 goals to gain 3 stars which unlocks other more challenging levels as you go on. I love this game for the challenge it presents from the start. You really have to concentrate and use strategy to get all three stars.
However, some of the levels seem impossible to get all three stars, and to me I can't play this game for very long as I get higher in levels because it becomes very stressful in getting the stars so you can proceed to the next level in the contest.
The graphics are great, the music is good but beware it is very calming and soothing music and I find it kind of puts me to sleep. There really is no storyline as it's mahjong, you just have to get through a contest of different puzzles.
I love this game for the challenge, despite how frustrating it can become at times.
I bought this game the moment the trial was over.

although i love other genres of games, this game proved to be most enjoyable and challenging. it has multiple levels of challenge and that is what made it so worth while for me. i love games that keep you playing till the end, and this one did just that. once you started, you just want to complete the challenges with the highest achievement. it was worth the money, because of the multiple levels and the length of the game for me as well as the beautiful images and colours. Its a MUST - PLAY!!!
