3D Magic Mahjongg ReviewWritten by Alexei
This is a game that goes to show, nothing is quite as simple as it seems. Similar to other versions of Mahjong, 3D Magic Mahjongg is much more interesting on account of mood set by 3D visuals, soothing music and Chinese temple ambience that you encounter when you first download game and start playing.
Unique from earlier variations of Mahjong, it has advisory levels that warn you if you are going wrong so you can take corrective action. Other features are, that you can have game statistics for each board, score tables to list best times achieved and a camera panel that allows you to view game from different angles.
Two versions of game are available so you can choose tile sets and holiday themes. These have been done really nicely. The tiles are colourful and pretty and some are pretty confusing and it is fun to ramble around choosing which tiles or formation you want to play with. The settings add to fun. The holiday settings are well designed and put you in a festive mood.
