1.0 out of 5 stars Why does it auto run in the background? February 28, 2012
By ohmage
Verified Purchase
I liked playing this on my kindle fire. But when I noticed slowness problems w/ other games I ran Gemini app manager and found that Mahjong Artifacts was running even though I hadn't started it. This happened on several occasions, so I have to conclude it is auto-starting for some reason. I don't like the impact on performance and I especially don't like the sneak factor. What is it doing??

Otherwise a good 4 star game.

2.0 out of 5 stars PAID Ver has Ads, ENOUGH With the ads! February 19, 2012
Verified Purchase
I don't care if you made other apps, stop spamming your garbage ads in a PAID app. EVERY TIME you start this app you must first wade through the devs ads for other apps they make before you can play. There is the first screen which nags you to buy the other stuff they make, you then have to click ok to continue, once you finally get to the main screen there is another nag button flashing about their other apps. You can't disable any of that crap so you have to jump through the ad hoop before even getting to the point of playing. The second button on the main screen is enough, you don't need a damn ad ridden splash screen first before the game starts forcing people to click continue. This is a PAID app, stop nagging people with your crap ads!

The game is well done but the ads are enough to make me stick with "Random Mahjong" instead. Its too bad, I was going to buy this and part 2 but glad I didn't and won't be buying anything from this ad spamming dev. ONE simple (non blinking or intrusive) button on the main app page linking to your other apps is enough, this is just ad overkill.

1.0 out of 5 stars ads!!! February 19, 2012

Takes a long time to load because of the ads at the beginning. Good game but its unfair to have ads on an app you pay for. Game is okay.

1.0 out of 5 stars Opens itself and runs in the background! April 22, 2012
Verified Purchase
I would recommend against this app. I have an app manager installed and discovered that quite frequently this app is running itself in the background when I have not opened it. What is it doing in the background when I've not opened it?! It is eating up RAM on my device to do who knows what when I'm not paying attention. No other game app does this that I can tell. I am usually skeptical of reviews that complain about permissions and what-not, but this app seems suspicious to me or at the very least buggy if it is not malicious.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ads on a paid app and runs in background March 8, 2012
Verified Purchase
The app is lousy with ads - even in the paid version. The app also constantly runs in the background regardless if you kill the task. There is no excuse for either of these situations. It's a shame because the game is very well done otherwise.

Why does this app require internet access?
The net access is needed to spam you with ads most likely. Thats how they can change their ads whenever they want and update those ads. What else the dev intends to do now that they have net access remains to be seen. Maybe they put the ads in cause they didnt have another way to disguise the... Read More

Endless mode?
The endless version of the game isn't really endless. The first 15 to 20 levels are very easy, but things get more complicated as you drill down into the levels. It's fun to see how far you can get before you run out of lives.
