Cute idea but the controls are not working well on my Kindle Fire!
on October 27, 2012
The game features 6 tile layouts with 5 being based on the Halloween theme. Not only are the tiles labeled with Halloween icons but the shapes of the special layouts are in the shape of Halloween items like: Black Cat, Witch's Hat, Haunted House, Jock O'Lantern and Ghost. You of course can play the classic layout.
While the game's theme and idea is cute, unfortunately the game wouldn't play very well. On my Kindle Fire I could touch dozens of tiles and they would not activate for play then suddenly they would. The slightest touch also moved the entire pile of tiles around which is very bothersome. You can zoom into the pile so I tried that and it still would not let me select tiles that were obviously free. I have not had that issue with other Mahjong games that I own.
Play and more games are on the home screen and more games takes you to the web to Amazons Appstore of the Amazon browser.
What I like:
The Halloween theme was a good idea but for whatever reason the touch controls are not working well.
What I don't like:
After 20 minutes of trying to play I decided to move on. I have about ten Mahjong games that I enjoy playing but this one has issues with game play on my Kindle Fire. The touch controls would not allow you to pick up tiles that were free and it made the game frustrating and not fun.
While the Halloween theme is cute it doesn't make up for the strange actions of the controls. If I am having difficulty on a larger screen Kindle Fire I cannot imagine playing this on a smaller smart phone.
I usually play the app of the day for 1 ½ to 3 hours before I write a review. Sometimes up to four hours. Today after 20 minutes I gave up because of the controls. It is unfortunate because I like Mahjong but it was not worth playing as it is a frustrating game on my Kindle Fire.
I hope your experience is better than mine was.
