Mahjong Detective: The Stolen Love 3.9 5 8 8
That's Thinking Outside Of The Box! Mahjong is one of my least favorite games because they are all the same. This game however is really unique and challenging, part mahjong, part solitaire! The object of the game is to match identical mahjong tiles in the usual mahjong manner, BUT, you can earn more coins if you are able to make a chain, the longer the chain, the more coins you earn. To make a chain you can start with any number, let's assume you match two mahjong tiles that represent the number one. You can keep matching ones, or place a tile representing two and so forth, or you can create a chain backwards 9, 8, 7 etc. Some tiles are jokers which can represent any number, gold tiles are worth more than silver tiles, Silver worth more than regular tiles. Chains are maxed out at 15 tiles or if you can no longer place more tiles consecutively. Chains can also be created with identical symbols and you will earn stars that can be used to purchase Bonuses. Some bonuses are given to you in the form of tiles as you progress, such as the Joker, or a Battery which recharges the bonuses you have used, more quickly. The Bonuses you purchase must be unlocked, once you have earned enough stars, and you will need to unlock slots for your chosen bonuses. The bonuses can be used to undo your last move, swap 2 tiles, remove all available matches, unlock a tile, or even qualify for more coins. Each level gives you 3 available shuffles, and you can accumulate up to 10 shuffles, which is a necessity once you reach the harder levels. When familiar genre games get a radical overhaul, they always get mixed reviews, some people fear change. Because this game has such a different style than normal Mahjong, I strongly suggest you download the one hour trial to see if it's a mahjong match for your taste. I didn't really see the point to the "Detective" story that goes along with it, because it was moot, it takes a few levels to get into the groove, and then you find yourself plotting your next strategy, enjoy!

Surprisingly good! Wow, I?m absolutely LOVE this game! It successfully combines genres that I love ? mahjong and solitaire. I agree with the other posters who said that the storyline is not the best part of the game, but for such type of games it is not important at all. Graphics is pretty clear and nice, the music is good, it changes with each game screen and doesn't become boring. I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game! May 13, 2015
Mahjong Detective: The Stolen Love Another great Mahjong game to play May 13, 2015
RIDING A LEARNING CURVE IIN THE ADVENTURELAND OF DISCOVERING A NEW GAME I am new to this type of game. This is a trial for rme to see if I actually "like" this type of game. I became rather interested in Mah Jong when I played a HOP game which offered this as an option to the HOP scenes. So, to me, nothing is boring as yet. But then again, being a newbie, I have no idea as yet as to what this game entails. I am in a learning curve, so to speak. I see others , including some of the top reviewers on this site, do not like this game - so I guess this is NOT the "best" game for me to play on my first venture into the world of Mah Jong. Why am I venturing into the mystical world of Mah Jong? When I become completely absorbed in a project with major storms arising in my brain, I need to focus and become centered and this game seems to have the same effect as the O'Ekaki games. I am not certain if I will play many more of these - but I am experimenting to see if actually "like" this type of game. You are scored and get coins as you play for all the great achievements you acquire. Personally, I don't care about the achievements offered. I just like to play a game to play a game If it helps me focus and helps collect my thoughts to solve problems and create solutions - I am all for it. I will give it top billing because so far it is all so new and exciting to me. But - don't get your hopes up - I get bored pretty easily. May 12, 2015
Didn't like it first time around I apparently ordered this a while back and didn't like it and then I ended up re-ordering it by accident BUT this time...I LIKEY! I don't know if I just wasn't in the mood for this type game or if I just didn't thoroughly read the instructions. I am now enjoying the challenge of making chains and trying to get the number of coins in a certain amount of turns. It is challenging and you have to put a little thought into each move and I am enjoying that. If you are not sure, try the hour free play and see what you think. It's a good one! May 21, 2016
Left Standing Alone at the Altar!!!! First, let me say ...... I LOVE a good Mahjong game and own a few from the BFG site. LOVE for this game is not even in the scope of my vocabulary. And I don't mean for a good reason. The storyline was ..... borderline ridiculous. Your character, a bride, is left standing alone at the alter as her groom is a no-show and the guests slowly leave. You immediately call "foul play" and go ..................... to a private investigator. The graphics were ok. Nothing above and beyond. The game playing area was a good size, the cursor didn't cause any problems, you could change the tile sets and, overall, everything was ..... ok. The music was a mash between a lilting Oriental and ...... something I couldn't recognize ..... but it wasn't a really great sound. The gist of the game is NOT just to play the Mahjong in the "usual" fashion, but to play it as a hi/low solitaire game! Your goal is to get 3 stars for getting "x" number of coins .... twice .... and then completing the level/hand. Doing this gets you more coins which you need to get all 3 gold stars for a successful level/hand. So, you start out with, say, a pair of 2s, then another pair of 2s .... or up it to 3s, then 4s then back to 3s ..... but keep the train going as long as possible (up to 15 in a row, that's the max). Playing the game like this take a lot of time because you have to closely look over the game board to find matches to make a train as long as possible. You CAN play the usual game of Mahjong .... just playing pairs as long as possible with the goal to empty the game board but you won't earn as many coins .... and coins means .... gold stars! You can also go back and replay a level. You have the opportunity to purchase bonuses in the shop. That's it. That's the game in a nutshell. I would not recommend it for beginners or those who like the "just keep pairing tiles til you clear the board" type of Mahjong. I consider myself an "intermediate" and had to take it v-e-r-y slowly. I hated that. The story really discontinued after your character went to the P.I. She pops up to give you hints/tips on the game play but does nothing else. This game lacked entertainment value. It had a story that just ...... ended...... and the game play was extremely onerous. I couldn't' wait for the demo to end. I love my Mahjong games to have a story or some background AND to relax while I'm playing. This game has very little relaxation or story continuation to it. Therefore, it will not be a purchase for me. If you find that you like this game .......... Enjoy! May 12, 2015
Dull and uninteresting Hi, fishies! Let's get right to it. Your fiance has gone missing. You have to play mahjong games in order to get money to buy bonuses while searching for clues. This is based on only ten minutes, I admit, because I was totally bored after two mahjong screens. The good point is that there are no timers. GRAPHICS: 2.5 out of 5. Clean and clear, nice tiles, but the "animation" in the cut scenes were pitiful and the overall look could have been much better. SOUND: 3 out of 5. Adjustable sounds and music. Soft and pretty, but boring with time. GAMEPLAY: 2.5 out of 5. There are no written instructions as to what each of the large buttons mean. You have to actually click on them to find your way around. While this might be easy for some to memorize quickly, others might not find it so. As for the actual mahjong, it was easy to figure out what to do. FUN FACTOR: 1 out of 5. It got boring very fast. OVERALL SCORE: 9 out of 20. Only for die-hard mahjong players. May 12, 2015
They've Figured Out how to make Mahjong Pointless and Boring I know that game designers feel a need to innovate; the pressure on them must be huge. I tend to feel sympathetic toward them most of the time, and even give them a break on bad cut scene graphics and stilted language. The designers of "Mahjong Detective: The Stolen Love" started out with a great idea - combine Mahjong with a detective story. They then saddled it with the most pointless innovation I can imagine: in order to score maximum points, your pairs have to increase by a value of one. If you break the chain, you have to start over - with a pair of tiles each with a value of one, and build from there - or with each succeeding pair, you score goes down. Heaven forfend you should try to play the board in terms of what's available; no what matters is whether the next pair goes up by a value of one. It's frustrating, pointless, makes the board impossible to clear, and angies up the blood, which is not why I play mahjong. I want to relax and enjoy the puzzle. Whether I win a round should be based on my skill, not arbitrary rules which are, incidentally, impossible to follow because the board is still scrambled. The level of challenge on this was actually huge, but I didn't want to inflate the ranking of a badly-designed game. May 12, 2015
