Aki Mahjong Solitaire 1.2.0

Aki Mahjong Solitaire for Mac OS X elegantly blends the ancient Chinese game of Mahjong with an enchanting journey across Japan. It's a modern fusion of two ancient Asian cultures, and is as much an experience as it is a game. Aki Mahjong Solitaire is easy to learn even if you still haven't mastered chopsticks, so don't hesitate to dive right in. We think you'll soon find yourself captivated.

Aki Mahjong Solitaire is a journey through the uniquely fascinating scenery and culture of Japan, and a journey of meditative bliss, learning how to let the Mahjong tiles match themselves. In Aki, you may find your moment of Zen.

The principle is simple: you have a number of ivory tiles arranged on a beautiful Japanese backdrop. Your goal is to make all of the tiles disappear by matching them to similar tiles. The catch is that tiles can be removed only if they are unblocked on either side by other tiles, and you have the uncompromising ticking away of the time limit to contend with.

From these simple rules flows a game that has delighted people around the world for centuries. Aki Mahjong Solitaire features an exquisitely detailed ivory tile set from a real antique Mahjong game, combined in harmony with a thoroughly modern gaming engine of the quality you'd expect from Ambrosia.

At each step in your path, you will encounter new challenges in the variety of tile layouts presented to you, and a variety of skill levels that ensure you'll always find the experience engaging. As you progress, you will also be rewarded with fragments of Japanese culture and history, making your journey an enlightening as well as enjoyable one.

a strange flower

Mac Games Rating philip thorburn (6/15/2008 - version 1.2.0)
This is just cheating. It takes over twenty minutes to download and then goes on clamouring for payment. I haven't been able to make my 'demo' version work even once!
Mac Games Rating Hayseed Literatus (2/25/2008 - version 1.1.1)
Nice tile-matching game. Decent music, pretty images, and some educational information about Japanese places and culture, too. Overall, a fun variation on "Mah Jong" games (in the Western appropriation of the word). I see no problem with the Japanese motifs in this -- I wonder if a previous reviewer knows that Kyodai is a Japanese word meaning "brothers" originally...?

me encanta el juego
Mac Games Rating Tyler Durden (1/19/2004 - version 1.0.0)
okubyona - not the word "Solitaire"? I guess you should learn to read before you post a review. Wonderful game. Great Solitaire fun! Awesome graphics.
Mac Games Rating Mister DUH! (1/14/2004 - version 1.0.0)
The game looks good and has a decent interface. I'm taking points off my rating because, quite frankly, with this being a game with Chinese origins, I really feel it's just ridiculous (if not downright insulting) to have a Japanese theme to it. If only Kyodai Mahjongg would come to the Mac platform. *sigh*
