Mahjong Towers Eternity - Second Wind of the Ancient Board Game
Mahjong Towers Eternity developed by Bigfish Games in 2005 till nowadays is acknowledged one of the best Mahjong games and has earned a great online player community. While it has preserved the game play basics of Mahjong, it features three-dimensional graphics together with oriental melodies.
But no matter how cool the graphics of the game can be, if there is no idea behind the game, it will never win your addiction. The plot of Mahjong Towers Eternity is borrowed from that of the Ancient Chinese mahjong game and is based on tile matching.
A player's task is to simply match two identical tiles in a huge pile, click on them - and they will disappear.
In other words, the game playoff Mahjong is a gradual stripping down a pyramid of tiles on the lovely background to the relaxing melody.
The main pro of Mahjong Towers Eternity is its unlimited ability for customization and a great diversity of options.
You are advised to choose a play mode and a tile set, not to mention the background picture and melody before you can finally push the ‘Start' button.
You have to choose almost everything about the game play: 4 melodies and 14 background pictures, over 7 kinds of tilesets including English alphabet and 8 943 layouts that can be shared by players.
And what is more important: the game has three play modes: classic mode or a standard Mahjong game (all tiles are visible), a speed mode (only the tiles that can be matched are visible); a concentration mode (only a selected tile is visible).
So, players can play the modified Mahjong at the same time, no one will say they're playing the same game.
Mahjong Towers Eternity is one of a few computer games where the difference between a player and developer became imperceptible, which means that you can not only play the game, but also create it yourself.
Mahjong Towers Eternity offers you to create your own lay-outs and use your own tile images.
Though Mahjong Towers Eternity is based on the ancient plot, the developers are trying to adjust the game to the latest standards of the gaming world. Now it enables you to stay in touch with other players, send messages, share layouts, and tiles.
No surprise the game has a continually growing army of fans that has even arranged an unofficial forum at: http://mahjongtowers.proboards56.com/index.cgi covering all aspects of the game and friendly community. Feel free to browse through, meet new people, ask for help, boast your results, and tell secrets or just chat about life. And that proves the irresistible charm of the game better than any commercials...
