"The ancient mahjong, now for mobile phones"

Reviewed by / May 23, 2011

Standard mahjong game with different layouts.

China's contributions to the arts and sciences are too many to name them all. But if Android developers had to choose just one, it sure would be the Mahjong. There are countless Mahjong applications on the market, but we've found this can be quite representative of all of them.
First at all: if you don't know how to play Mahjong, learn somewhere first. This app doesn't include any tutorial, neither does any other we know. Developers should take note, even when that isn't its biggest flaw: you can't neither zoom in nor zoom out pinching the screen. You have to use the appropriate icons found at the bottom.
Mahjong includes over 80 different layouts, some of them quite strange and rather difficult. There's no search bar, so you have to swipe them one by one until you arrive to the desired one. The good news are that each game allows three hints, three undos and three random shuffles just in case you get lost but you don't want to give the game up.

This free version has non intrusive ads. If you liked it, you should check the adfree and the 3d mahjong apps from the same developer.

Developer's original description available here
Mahjong is a free solitaire matching game which uses a set of Mahjong tiles. The goal of this pyramid game is to match open pairs of identical tiles and remove them from the board, exposing the tiles under them for play. You will be challenged to eliminate all pieces from the board.

This board game includes 200 tables. A hint functionnality also exist to help you when being stuck on a difficult table.

Mahjong involves skill, strategy, and calculation, as well as a certain degree of luck.


If you enjoy playing chess, checkers, backgammon, tic tac toe or any Memory games, you will surely enjoy playing Mahjong !

    Great and does just what you want it to. Only criticism would be that when you lock the screen sometimes it kicks you out of your current game and back to the main menu. Same when you come out of the app but leave it running in the background, you can't go back to your game. Finally would like to be able to jump to a particular tile arrangement and not have to scroll through all 200.
