Classic Ancient Mahjong

Classic Ancient Mahjong
Game Description: Play the classic game of mahjong. Match identical tiles to remove them from the board. Remove all tiles from the board before time runs out and advance to the next level of play. With large easy-to-read tiles, and 3 extra lives, Classic Ancient Mahjong is destined to become a fan-favorite!

How to Play Classic Ancient Mahjong:
  • You begin the game with 4 lives.
  • You get 1 life, plus 3 extra lives. Your extra lives are represented by the 3 red hearts located near the lower right corner of the game screen.
  • Each level will have a different mahjong board with layers of tiles.
  • A mahjong tile may only be clicked if there is no other tile either on its left or right on the same layer. In other words, if a mahjong tile has both a tile on its left, and on its right on the same layer, it cannot be clicked.
  • To remove two mahjong tiles you must click on a matching pair of clickable tiles.
  • The time you have to complete each level is represented by the vertical bar on the left.
  • The time drains from top to bottom.
  • When the time drains all the way to the bottom your time is up.
  • Your goal is to remove all of the tiles from the entire board before time runs out to win your level.
  • When you win a level you will advance to the next level of play.
  • If you fail a level you will lose 1 life, and one of your red hearts will turn white.
  • As long as you still have at least 1 life remaining your game may continue but you will have to repeat the level you just lost. (Be careful here. After you lose a level Classic Ancient Mahjong will say 'Time Over Retry?' You must click 'yes' to continue your game. If you should accidently click 'no' all of your game progress will be lost and you will have to begin a new game back at Level 1).
  • Your overall objective is to complete as many levels of mahjong as you possibly can.
  • The game is over when you lose your last life.

Classic Ancient Mahjong Game Options:
  • The game music may be turned on or off by clicking the microphone icon located on the right side about midway down. However, each time you begin a new level the music will come back on. So if you wish to turn the music off. you will need to click it each time.

Classic Ancient Mahjong Playing Tips:
  • Do not ever click the 'Main Menu' button. If you do, all of your game progress will be permanently lost with no possibility of getting it back.
  • Be careful of deep stacks. If you end up with only one remaining stack the level will be lost because no more matches will be possible.

Richard's Rating: 4 out of 5.

Comments: The best feature of Classic Ancient Mahjong are the tiles themselves. They are very simple in design and are easy to distinguish from one another. They are also nice and big and easy to read. This makes game play much more enjoyable. Most mahjong games, it seems to me, feature tiles with intricate designs with lots of small markings that are often very difficult to tell apart. Another thing that I like about Classic Ancient Mahjong are the 4 lives. Many mahjong games with multi levels do not give you any extra chances. This allows you to progress much farther in the game than you normally would.
