Liong: The Lost Amulets
A Fun Mahjong with lots of Hidden Object Challenges!
I bought this game in November 2008 and I still play it all the time. I love the challenge that it offers with the Hidden Objects. The only draw back is that you can only have 5 different names of players then you have to delet one to start another new game with a new name. I would like to see more of these type of games.

Fabulous fun for all
What a great game. I bought it by accident and can't stop playing. With a combination of HOs, Bingo, Tiling, Spot the difference, I never know what I will be playing next. Fabulous way to loose yourself for many hours. It makes a great fun change from the usual games I buy - mainly spooky Hidden Objects, thrillers etc. This game will keep you entertained all day and night. I highly recommend it and if I can find more in the same genre I'll be buying them too. Just found Dragon Dance so I'm ready to buy that too.

Great Mahjongg variation, as good as the first Liong game
I love Mahjongg games and really like variations on the Mahjongg formula, and I was definitely pleased with this effort.
It's different that the first Liong game, the Dragon Dance, in that you don't just do Mahjongg variations, there are a lot of other puzzle types as well. This worked fine for me because I love all kinds of puzzle games, but you should definitely shop according to your taste: The Dragon Dance is all Mahjongg, The Lost Amulets is about half Mahjongg, half other puzzle types.
If you care about the visual look of you Mahjongg, you will probably be happy with this game. I love Oriental art, so I really liked to look of the game.
I would usually be unhappy with the limited number of tilesets available, but because the other aspects of the game take up enough of my attention, I haven't even wanted to change tilesets after several hours of play.
Unlike on The Dragon Dance, there's no way to slow down the progress of the dragon toward the gates, but there is an untimed mode, which accomplished the same thing, because I usually play puzzle games with no timer. This feature is a make-or-break for me.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this game.

Like the Combo
I like the combo of Hidden Objects, Mahjong and Puzzles. I played the demo and immediately bought it. It is a go to game for relaxing!

Another game from a company that makes great games
Both Liong games are great and I would like to see more of them. This one has puzzle and hidden object challenges, as well as Mahjong. This game is beautiful and fun.

I tried this game because of the glowing reviews and also because it promised that it was not only a Mahjong game. I was NOT disappointed! I really don't care for a pure Mahjong game - I don't know why....I've tried many of them, but it just doesn't float my boat!! So besides the as promised Mahjong aspect, there were HO scenes sprinkled throughout, as well as the pearls that you need to find in the scenes - FUN! Then there are varied mini games and a timed "find the matching origami figures" which begins easily by matching only 2, but gradually becomes more difficult with more matches required. That is quite surprisingly fun and brought out my competitive side! The game is just beautiful with super colorful scenes and not a jumbled pile of junk for the HO scenes, which is a nice change. All in all this is just a fun, relaxing but also challenging at times game that I just know I will play more than once! I really enjoyed this game and I wish BFG would have more games that have several genres in one! A definite "buy" for me! Do try it for yourselves to see if you enjoy it as much as I did! Happy gaming!

my second big fish review
this is one of the first games i ever purchased, and what a great choice! the graphics are great. and it's like 2 games in 1. mahjong and hidden object. i judge any game by my desire to replay it. and i have replayed this game 2 or 3 times. it's always a different game.

A fun game to play!
There are lots of different games to play! The fun part is not knowing what is going to be next.
The Hidden Object games are really well done and sometimes the objects are difficult to find.
The Mahjong variation games are good and the tiles are colorful.
There are other puzzle games that are randomly played ? like tile matching and bingo.
There is a non timed option and you can select the types of tiles displayed.
Overall very fun to play!

Mahjong with a twist, HOGs, memory games and more!
This game isn't played like traditional Mahjong. There is a board at the bottom of your screen with tiles on it. You have to make matches of THOSE tiles using the tile layout on the game board. The goal is to remove all the gold letters - but you have to do that by matching with the tiles at the bottom as well.
Interspersed with this matching game are HOGs (hidden object games), memory games, make a picture, find the difference and many other mini games.
AND, if that wasn't enough to hold your interest - no matter WHAT you're playing, keep your eye out for tiny white pearls. The more you collect, the more you can "buy" hints, etc.
I started out really not liking this game. Then, I started to enjoy myself. By the time the hour-long (fast) and free demo ended, I was hooked. Got the "wow" factor at the end of the demo. The one when the demo ends and my reaction is "NO! NOT YET!" That means a DEFINITE buy for me.
I encourage everyone who loves Mahjong, matching games, HOGs and other mini games to give this a try. There really is something for everyone.
