Mahjongg Dimensions Deluxe
Chinese mahjong has been around for thousands of years without much change to its play and look until now. Changing a classic game is a tricky and not always a successful transition, however Mahjongg Dimensions Deluxe has updated this ancient game without losing its’ addictive appeal, calming effect and beautiful tiles. Its improvement of the 3D twist and cubed tiles are interesting additions to a play that has been done on a flat surface with flat tiles for ages.
The first difference you notice about this game is that the tiles are cubes and you can rotate the blocks so you can see from different angles. By pressing the arrows on either side of the screen, you are able to see behind or the sides of the cubes. You need to do so because you get more options for matches. The rotating mechanisms will get easier as you use them. You need to match 2 of the similar cubes to clear them from the board. The cubes you click on must have 3 sides free to make a match. After clearing your board, you proceed to the next puzzle.
There are many power ups to be found among the cubes and blocks. If you match 2 red gems, the entire board will be changed to blue blocks for a few seconds so you can easily match 2 cubes quickly to gain a lot of points. If you are fast when matching the cubes, you will get a bonus multiplier to increase your score. There are other bonuses like the slowdown tiles, freeze blocks and bomb blocks.
You can view your completed levels at the bottom of the screen. From the map you can view the available puzzles you can replay for a faster time and increase your medals. There are 2 modes of play: Normal and Hard. In addition, you can play this game either timed or untimed for either exciting or relaxing play.
Mahjongg Dimensions Deluxe is a beautifully drawn game and with its relaxing music and untimed play can be almost Zen like game for anyone wanting to take it easy while enjoying a pleasant game. Of course, if you are in search of an exciting, fast paced play, you can do that also by playing it in the timed mode and seeing how high your score can go. Overall this is an enjoyable, fun game to spend an afternoon or evening playing. I give it a 3.5 out of 5 for an awesome time.
