Worth it for beginners.

This is a fun game that a has provided my niece with hours of fun. She caught on easily. This is an excellent resource for learning how to play and introduce new users to the game.

This title has:

Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

The classic mah-jongg matching game can be a great, brainy pastime for young and old alike, but it can often be too challenging for very small kids. MAHJONG ADVENTURES, in both its simplified gameplay and colorful, cartoony imagery, works beautifully as a child's introduction to a classic game. There's a good deal of marketing going on, with several in-app purchases offered and the potential for getting on the publisher's emailing list, but the ability to unlock new levels for free (based upon meeting a high score) is a much appreciated addition.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
