Engaging storyline and sweeping
With that said, Mah Jong Quest Expeditions features
your traditional mahjong game with a few twists and turns as you
progress through the game. For those unaware of the game mahjong, the
player must match the tiles with other similar tiles on the board in
order to clear the board.
Although similar to dominoes, mahjong is a multi
tiered game which means the tiles are stacked on other tiles which
allows the gamer a variety of ways of solving the puzzle and like
Solitaire, the title does involve a good deal of strategy.
The game features three different gameplay
modes which include Quest, Classic and Puzzle. In quest, the player
controls Kwazi, a teenager who is split into male and female as the
world has become unbalanced. Your goal is to clear a path through the
mahjong board in order for both genders to become one again.
The storyline of quest is actually quite
engaging and sometimes quite humourous as you attempt to work out a
variety of different mahjong puzzles, however the catch of this mode of
play is there a variety of mahjong powerup tiles which make for some
interesting gameplay. Lastly there is classic, your traditional mahjong
game and puzzle which have limited number of solutions as the player is
racing against the clock.
The control system of the DS works
extremely well with this game, making this the perfect mahjong game for
anyone on the go. Graphically, the title is quite impressive on the DS
with some great cutscenes and highly detailed mahjong pieces. The music
has a great atmosphere to the game that goes well with the sound effects
At the end of the day, Mah Jong Quest
Expeditions is definitely a great game if you are a lover of mahjong and
if you're a puzzle fan, than this might be a good game to investigate as
it will keep you entertained for quite some time.
Definitely one worth investigating.
