Call in sick and unplug the phone for Mahjong Towers Eternity, the addictive and fun-filled third installment of the award-winning Mahjong Towers is finally here. Select from 3 different play modes, create your own tile sets and backdrops, design layouts that can be shared among friends and chat with other players in this amazing game! If you are not the creative sort, no worries! The game itself has more than 253 thousand layouts for you to enjoy and a plethora of tile sets (up to 11 of them) that you can choose to use. If you need some help, don’t worry! There are unlimited undos and hints as well as 1 layout reshuffle for you to use. Surely Mahjong Towers Eternity is starting to sound just like your ideal mahjong game... so what are you waiting for? Try it today!
To start, you’ll first need to select a layout that you want to play in. There are a ridiculous number of layouts – a whopping 253,092 the last I checked and that number keeps increasing as day passes by as more players add their own custom layouts to the library for all to download! Some examples of the most popular layouts include Art House, Castle, Connections, Early Riser, King’s Crown and Linoleum.
Some layouts have less tiles (the smallest layouts have 20 tiles) and are considered much easier to play while some other have more (the largest layout has 750 tiles) and are much harder to solve. Each layout has its own statistics so you can see how many have tied it and how many managed to solve it and how long did they take to do so. Choosing a layout can be a tough choice to make, but don’t worry! In time, you’ll be able to slowly play them all!
Once you’ve selected a layout, the game will pop out the settings menu. Here, you can select your playing difficulty. There are mainly 3 difficulty that you can choose from, namely classic, speed and concentration. For classic, you’ll be playing your standard mahjong game, whereby all the tiles are faced up. For speed, however, only tiles that can be currently matched are visible and for concentration, only tiles that are selected is visible (and you’ll get a 3x bonus to score if you play the concentration mode). For beginners, it’s always best to start with the easiest mode first... which in this case is the classic mode. Once you’re familiar with the layout, you can then try the other modes.
At the settings menu, you can also select the background image you like to see while playing your mahjong game. There are more than 10 beautiful background images that you can choose from but if none of them fits your fancy, you can upload an image or images of your own as well!
Lastly, you’ll need to select a tile set. There are 11 premade tile sets that you can choose from, such as traditional, musical, numbers, animated toons (yes, the cartoons on the tiles can actually move), still toons, insects and plenty of others! For beginners, perhaps the traditional tile set is more suitable to start you off in a game. You can always change them (along with all the other settings) in the next game if you’d like.
You can even create your own tile sets. How? Well, it’s pretty simple really. You just need to place 36 different images, in either jpg or bmp formats, in a named folder (the images needn’t be named). The name of the folder will become the name of your tile set so be sure to choose a good name for your tile set. If you like, you could even put your friends’ portrait photos as your custom mahjong tile set! Incredible, right?
Once everything is done, you can then start the game. The rules of the game are similar to every other mahjong game that you may have played before. You’ll need to match up pairs of mahjong tiles with the same patterns on them in order to remove them from the playing field. Tiles that are blocked in any way, either on the sides or on top, cannot be selected... let alone matched. The only objective to win in the game is to clear the playing field of all mahjong pieces.
Although Mahjong Towers Eternity is technically not a time-based game, in each game you play, you may have noticed that there’s a timer that is counting up on the left side of the screen, along with critical information like the total number of tiles and the number of available matches left on the playing field. The timer indicates that the faster you can complete a mahjong layout, the more score points you’ll gain. However, you will not be penalized if you take too long to finish solving the level.
There are also 3 different helpful options that you can use to maximize the score points you earned – undo, hint and shuffle. You get unlimited number of undo and hint, so if you feel the need, you could freely use these options to give your game a boost. For shuffle however, you are only allowed 1 shuffle per game. Thus, it’s critical to clear the mahjong tiles as evenly as you can and don’t forget to start from the tallest tower of tiles first.
At the end of the level, your score points earned will be added to the total score points you’ve earned since you started playing the game. These score points will gradually increase the number of 12-zodiac-themed medals that you’ve collected. Starting from bronze medals, as you play the game, you’ll gradually get to “upgrade” all your bronze medals into gold medals – the highest rank there is in Mahjong Towers Eternity.
Despite the game’s age, Mahjong Towers Eternity still has around 800 active players daily who are busy creating new layouts for players to enjoy! If you love this game so much, perhaps you might enjoy meeting other of your fellow players via the in-game chat function or even through the game’s forums on Big Fish Games’ website. Who knows? You might make a couple of new friends along the way.
Mahjong Towers Eternity has really nice and crisp graphics. The various themes of mahjong tiles are very well designed and the patterns on them look pretty nice. In terms of music, the game provides a range of soothing oriental-influenced music, so you won’t get bored listening to the same thing over and over again. However, if you prefer something more upbeat, you could put your own songs on the playlist and mute the music in the game.
All in all, Mahjong Towers Eternity is one of the best and timeless mahjong games out there that is entirely “powered” by its community and hence, has persevered until today! The game’s custom layout feature allows players to easily create their own layouts (there are more than 253 thousand of layouts that you can play with) and share them to all the players in the game to enjoy. You can even create your own tile sets or upload your own background images to the game as well! Collect the 12 different zodiac-themed medals and “upgrade” them from bronze to gold medals. If you’re stuck anywhere in the game, there are 3 options, namely undo, hint and shuffle, whereby 2 of which (the first 2) can be used as many times as you like. If you love mahjong games, Mahjong Towers Eternity is definitely one game that you don’t want to miss out! Play it now!
