I'm a huge mah jong fan, and this was just barely okay for me. It's pretty enough to look at, but the jeweled tiles are SUPER easy to identify and eliminate, to the point where the challenge is almost entirely removed. I didn't need to use the powerups once - and in fact, I am not sure you can even lose a board. I even tried to sabotage myself so that I would end up with tiles that didn't match to see what would happen, and the game corrected it for me. The game even makes reference to saving the "skip game" functionality for "harder levels," but I played for nearly two hours and it never got one bit harder. If you are looking for a beginner's mah jong game, or an easy, relaxing experience, this one might be the one for you. I found that it wasn't at all challenging. And as far as I can tell, the "3D" aspect of it is limited to being able to view a completed scenic puzzle in 3D (if you happen to have glasses lying around.) I acknowledge that I may be missing something as I stopped and uninstalled after less than 2 uninspiring hours, but this game was just far too easy for me. It'd be great for younger kids.
