Join the community now playing a brand new 3D Mahjong game full of fun, challenges and an all new view of the classic board. Enjoy this stunning new mobile game for free today and see what is waiting for you.
When you first open the game you are able to choose one of 3 areas to play in. The first area is available for play while the others are only unlocked as you play through the levels in the first area. You begin the game with a few easy tutorials that teach you the basic controls and how to play Mahjong. Once these are completed, you will be given a series of different patterns to enjoy and you can dive right into the game.
Matching the tiles is simple, just touch on the 1st tile and then the matching tile, and they will disappear from the board. As you get further into the game, you will have more tile patterns available and ever larger board shapes. Some of these designs look amazing and are really great to try. These tile patterns give the game its unique and fun challenge.
The boards that you play are all in glorious 3D. This means that you can zoom in and out of the tiles as well as rotate the entire layout so you could take a good look around and find the matches you need. There is also a Gyro option that will rotate the board as you move your phone. However, it is definitely not for the faint of heart as this adds a dizzyingly new dimension to the game, but it can still be really fun when you get used to it.
To navigate around the board there is a box in the bottom left corner that you can move around, changing the angle that you see the tiles depending on your need. You can look at the whole layout from above or the side, and this can actually be immensely helpful to you to clear a level especially when you can't seem to find an available match.
While you play there is also a help feature that can show you a match available, but this does cost you one of your coins, so only use it if you are really stuck on a particular level, or if you have a lot of coins to spare.
The game uses the traditional tiles giving it an easy to recognize play style and format that many players enjoy. The design of the game brings these tiles to life in a new and innovative way making Zen Garden Mahjong a refreshing twist on the genre. Add in the ease of access on your mobile device and you have a game that can keep you entertained for a long time.
Each level that you play will cost coins, you begin the game with several and as you complete a level you will earn coins. There are 3 stars on each level, and the first time you play you will earn 1 coin per star. The higher your score the more stars that you will win.
Once you run out of coins, you can request more by watching advertisements in the game. Once these adverts end, you can then claim your coins. This also means that you do not have to spend any real money to play the game, simply watch the adverts and carry on. However, if you love the game so much and would like to show some support to the developers, you could buy some of the items offered in the game's in-app store.
With its achievement system and global leaderboards, you can compare your highest scores to other players' scores from all over the world. You could even share your achievements with your friends.
Zen Garden Mahjong comes with an amazing set of 3D graphics that give you a simply beautiful and completely unique experience when you play. The movement around the board is really smooth, and finding the tiles is easy. With the Gyro mode activated, you have a brilliant style of play that partly resembles what you'll see in an augmented reality game. Although there are many pretty tile patterns that you can choose from, if you decide to use only the classic tiles, it is also worth it.
For such a simple design, Zen Garden Mahjong is really compelling, and has a huge amount of gameplay available. Combined with the achievements, the unique 3D look and style, there is a nice smooth feeling when you play. Not having to pay any money for coins is also a nice touch that makes the game infinitely playable.
