Mahjong Royal Towers
I tried my hardest to do the trial, but the tutorial of this game put me off it for life. Mahjong really isn't a game that needs such much of explaining and hinting, especially not if the actions of the hints are being forced on the player to be carried out and especially NOT when these enforced hints are ludicrous actions and therefore in my mind false.
It's a real shame because I was looking forward to innovative mahjong challenge.

I wanted to like this one, as I really enjoy Mahjong games, as a rule, but this game was simply too difficult. To start with, the game is timed option only, which I don't like...however, I do know that some gamers enjoy that, but if you are going set goals on speed you need a game that moves quickly. Unfortunately, this one does not. You need to click more than once to make a match, which is really irritating, even when you are playing an un-timed game. Also, you need to remove the gold tiles in a certain number of moves, which turned out to be almost impossible. I only managed on the first level. The tiles have some straight forward designs, but some have these little sprout things with tiny variations that are really hard to see. There are some different styles to allegedly choose from, but I could not make them change...might be a glitch. I also had to change from the custom cursor, as the game one just didn't move quickly enough...that might just be my computer, though. There are trophies to achieve and quite a few different arenas, with what looks like 12 layouts each. Some might find the length appealing, as lately games have been of a shorter ilk, which tends to leave one feeling ripped off. The only thing I can add is that Mahjong is supposed to be a relaxing strategy game and this one fails, in my opinion.

Timed Mahjong Game
For some of us, adding time is enough to push us away. I want to enjoy my games, not be tested by them. You are in a tournament (with tournament type music) and you need to clear the tiles in so many moves or clear the tiles in so many minutes - not for me. I am aware that it's just to earn a tophy, and the level continues regardless, but if I don't beat the challenge all the way, I feel I've failed. Not for me, some of you might enjoy it.

Impossibly Timed, No Fun
I enjoy Mahjong games. But this one is just frustrating. The timed level is impossible to do. The game play itself is slow and heavy feeling. The moves, and getting all the gold tiles is reachable. But to do it in the time alotted is not. This could have been a great game if not for the timed part. Will not be buying this one. There is much better Mahjong games out there than this one that is for sure.

unfortunately worse than thought
the best thing about this game is the graphics. But I miss depth and variety

A fairly good game
This was a fairly good game.
Lots of levels.
The downside was getting out of the game.
It is so confusing
I would have bought the game, except for this one thing.

Mahjong Royal Towers a royal frustration.
I hate timed games. It would be soo nice if Big Fish noted on the advertisements whether or not games were timed. I have gone off buying many more games, because being an aged ensioner I cannot afford to buy them and find out that they are NOT relaxing but stressful. It seems with this game you can never win. Has anyone out there managed to do the levels in the time given? The colour and the graphics are goodo, but the game makes me depressed. A never ending loss.
