Cafe Mahjongg is a very relaxing mahjong game with a café theme. Like in any mahjongg game, your job is to match identical tiles to make them disappear from the board. The object of the game is remove all the tiles as quickly as possible. The game consists of different levels with a unique tile arrangement. As you progress in the game, the puzzles get more and more challenging.
This game has its own basic rules. For instance, whenever you click on a tile it will automatically move to an available cell at the top of the game screen. This is called the holding area and it can be used to store tiles until they are matched. However, if this area is full, you can still click on tiles and make matches with the open tiles. Remember that you can only match open tiles, not the ones with a tile directly above it or with adjacent tiles. The game also includes a series of bonus tiles (two groups of four) which can be matched with each other within the group, even though they look different. You will also see that there´s a meter called the mocha match, which if filled, gives you bonus points. If you get stuck you can use the hints and if you cannot make any more moves, even using the holding area, you can use the shuffle button to rearrange the remaining tiles, although some points will be deducted from your score.
The game also includes several tile sets and backgrounds to choose from. What is more, it includes over 120 puzzle layouts, and you can even create your own puzzle layouts, getting unlimited replayability.
