For those of you who have played Mahjong and Mahjong II by the same makers of this game, you'll notice an immediate similarity between these games- in fact early on, the only differences in these games are the loading screen. But fear not- differences arise as you progress through the game. The mechanics remain the same, no choice of layouts, simple mode for people who can't tell the difference between 8 balls and 7 balls in 'Classic' Mahjong. How you are supposed to read 8 and 3, and can't count to 8 and 3.. I'd like to see that one actually.
