Mahjong Quest Expeditions for Nintendo DS

Game Review

Ever since I was young I have loved playing Mahjong. When I was in grade school I remember playing Mahjong all the time on the computer. I had not played in years, so when I saw this DS version I was reminded how much I liked playing Mahjong and decided to try this version out. This version did not disappoint me at all. The way it works is exactly the same as I was used to with just that this uses a stylus and the touch screen compared to when I used the cursor on the computer. I actually found this game much better in that it had more tile arrangement variations than I was used to. It also has some fun different kind of tiles such as firecrackers that explode the block pieces of the same color as the firecracker. There are many other unique tiles to master how they work to help you beat the levels in the main expedition mode. In the expedition mode you try to beat levels and then progress on the map. I have played this game for over 12 hours and although rarely having trouble getting through the levels I still have not finished this mode. That is part of why I have enjoyed this game so much, as it has so much gameplay to keep puzzle lovers entertained. Additionally, you can just choose which tile arrangement you want and just play a single game and not be in the expedition mode.

I can't get the fire crackers to work either! Getting frustrated with it. It's probably something simple! But, it's beyond me!

The fireworks explode block tiles that are the same color as the firework. They only work on block tiles and not just any tile. If I remember correctly (I do not have the game right now), the firework tiles destroy the block tiles so you can get to whatever is under the block tiles and these block tiles are not the type you can get rid of by patching pairs unless you count the firework and block as a pair.
