    also

    Mahjong Zodiac
    Exclusive Game!

    Mahjong Zodiac is a mahjong and 3-matching game for MacOS X and Windows 98/2000/XP/Vista. It has fun, unique and "easy to learn but hard to master" gameplays.
    Order this Casual Game Store exlcusive game and win a Nintendo DS Lite!

    you already stated that it is an exclusive, so stating it again, in the end sentence is redundant--it is not a biggy, but I think, phrased like this:

    "Order this Casual Game Store exlcusive and win a Nintendo DS Lite!" is quite sufficient.


    as well, "exclusive game" it is a game site, yes?

    then "exclusive by it self is also quite sufficient"


    now I am going to go and check out your game, looks fun. looks fun.

    (damn english classes)

    Man, show us some screenshots... most of us will not even bother to download without looking at screens.

    Edit: hehe, reading my mind :D Add those to your website.

    Very nice music and graphics. So so gameplay, but I am not mahjong fun.

    Recommended changes:
    - tutorial font - I missed match-3 part, so I failed first level and had to go back to tutorial to find out what's this about
    - explosion sfx - it's really annoying and doesn't suit music
    - installer - no icons, no shortcuts, no launch when installed? it's soft release, those things should be in

    Where is buy now stuff and so on?

    17.7MB is correct. (17,7MB would be correct, also, in many European countries).

    (unless the download size really is 17.7 millibits. Which I doubt).

    May I ask who created the graphics for this game? I really like the style, esp. the style of the map.

    One more thing:
    - marking selected tiles with red colour makes it harder for me to make matches - I have to match using symbols and it's no fun for me to look for those little differences. Use border or something like that.

    A few points:

    * All sounds effect are delayed. When I click a menu options, or a tile set is collected, the associated sound effect occurs a good 1 second after.

    * Credits screen has no "Back" button.

    * Would be nice if during game type selection screen, the descriptions highlighted in someway when moused over. At first I thought the three blocks of text, where describing the main steps involved in gameplay. It was not till I read them I realized three different modes of play where being described and I needed to select one.

    * I agree with comment that collect time sound/ and graphics effects seem out of place.

    * Also, I felt the speed of all the sliding objects (i.e. Tiles, Text, etc) was a bit too slow (just MHO)

    Overall, a very nice job! :)

    BTW, I'm running under Windows Vista, and other than the sound delay everything seemed to work ok.
