I think all of these themed Mahjongs that they sell separately are a bit of overkill.
on August 21, 2013
I mean, I get it. It's nice to stare at new tiles and stuff. However, the main game, called "247 Mahjong" by the same developer, also sits on my device. I bought that one back in March when it was the free app of the day (and I still love it and I still play it and I still appreciate it! I gave it 5 stars, after all!). That version has lots of puzzles and here's the issue I have: I'm not understanding why they don't just release themes (free and/or paid) for the original game in order to give it more value? Why do they keep repackaging the game engine over and over and over again? It just doesn't feel right when these themed versions are basically just multiple copies of the same game. That's just going to waste my storage space. It seems silly and inefficient to me.
I get that this is the free app of the day today only, but normally this is 99 cents.
I'd rather buy a theme pack for 99 cents but instead I now have to have two or more copies of the same game installed on my devices? That just doesn't make sense to me and seems to be a waste of my storage space so I deducted 1 star this time, sorry. While this may be a very good game, I just don't think that this type of marketing is reaching the level of excellence that would grant it 5 stars. I think it actually subtracts from the overall experience of playing the games from this company. Not by much, but definitely enough to knock off a star
