Mahjong World Contest 2
In Brief
Mahjong World Contest 2 is a generic Mahjong Solitaire game.

The Game:
When you start the game you are required to create a profile. you can create multiple profiles, which makes this a great family game. Once a profile is created you are presented with a single page story board that shows an express van delivering an invite to take part in the New World Modern Mahjong Tournament, with the title of Master and a prize awaiting you.

You are then are taken to the game selection screen where you'll see a menu with four buttons, Contest, Trophies, Options and Help. The options menu enables you to change the sound and music volumes as well as choose one of three different tile sets. The Help button opens up to a 4 page tournament rules that explains the basic rules of mahjong, plus additional rules specific to this game, for example The faster you remove pairs of matching tiles from the board, the higher your index will be and the more points you can score. Removal of silver tiles automatically restores your chip bonus and all gold tiles need to be removed to complete the level. You do not need to remove every single tile from the board to finish, just the gold tiles. To become an all round mahjong champion you need to follow the special terms of each level that include the following:

1) ... Complete the level within a specified time.
2) ... Remove all the golden tiles within a specified number of moves.
3) ... If you see a symbol S you need to score enough points to equal or exceed the specified points total
.

There are two optional bonuses that can be toggled off or on, the first will shade out any tile that cannot be removed and the second is a shuffle bonus. Once used, the shuffle bonus takes some time to regenerate unless you clear a silver tile, which will regenerate the bonus immediately.

There are six different groups (called tournaments) to complete; all but one are locked at the start of the game. They are Yellow Chrysanthemum, (unlocked), Newbie, Experienced, Expert, Master and Grand Master (all locked). Each level set includes 20 levels. Once you've completed all 20 levels you unlock the next group. You can replay any level in each level set that has previously been unlocked. Each level has a three star rating. To earn three stars you have to comply with all the special terms of that level (as detailed in 1 - 3 above). For example level one goals ask you to remove 6 golden tiles, earn 1300 points and complete the level in 26 moves. however a banner located below the level goals lists the special tasks which give you an extra two moves to complete the level and you only need to score 500 points. Attaining all three of the level goals will award you three stars. If you fail to attain all three, you can return to the level any time you wish. Even if you fail to complete the points and moves goal for that level, so long as you attain the special tasks you will be awarded the title of all-round Mahjong champion. Once the level has been completed, even with only one or no stars, it will automatically unlock the next level.

The first level spoon feeds you the initial moves to introduce you to the two bonuses available. as you progress, you can win trophies, for example the Sprinter cup is awarded for attaining a x5 index. This is achieved by removing pairs of tiles very quickly. To earn three stars for each level is not that easy. I had to retry level one several times to complete all level requirements, even though it is the easiest level to complete.

Conclusion:
There's nothing new introduced in Mahjong World Contest 2, but, if you enjoy Mahjong solitaire games, this is worth downloading, if only for the challenge of getting three stars for each level. Unless you are as fast as lightning, I guarantee it'll take you quite some time to attain three stars for every level, of which there are 120 levels. (i.e. 20 levels per group).

If you want more Solitaire Mahjong, there's 90% off Mahjong Magic Journey 2 over on Steam HERE until 6th December costing £0.39/$0.50.

Whiterabbit-uk,


Other Free Games:
Please check Delenn's threads over in the giveaway forums HERE and HERE for the latest non Steam and Steam freebies. Also for the latest Steam sales check THIS Steam database site out. You can list the games in 'price' & 'percentage off' by clicking the headers. If you link SteamDB with your Steam account, all games that you already have will be highlighted in green. When there are Steam games being given away, you'll see 100% off.
Ashampoo-Snap-02-December-2021-02h42m28s-023
Don't forget to check Indie Gala's freebie section HERE, then click on the Showcase header, selecting freebies from the drop down menu; recent additions include Dracula 3: The Path of the Dragon, and Potatoman Seeks the Troof. Recent games such as Distortions, Dino Run DX, Cheap Golf, Kill Em All, Dead Hungry Diner and Contract with the Devil have now been removed. All remaining freebies can be found in the showcase section (around 100 are available). Not all games that go into the showcase remain free, so you should grab them as soon as you can.
The latest Epic games include Dead by Daylight, a multiplayer (4vs1) horror game where one player takes on the role of the savage Killer, and the other four players play as Survivors, trying to escape the Killer and avoid being caught, tortured and killed. We also get While True: Learn (Data Scientist Edition) - a puzzle/simulation game about even more puzzling stuff: machine learning, neural networks, big data and AI. But most importantly, it’s about understanding your cat.

Next week, from Thursday 9th December we will get Godfall Challenger Edition, (released last year on the 12th November) - Save Aperion. You are the last of the Valorian knights, masters of combat equipped with legendary armour called Valorplates. Ascend in Godfall, a first-of-its-kind, looter-slasher, melee action-RPG the challenger edition includes maximum level unlocks and skills from the outset. We will also be getting the excellent Prison Architect - Welcome Wardens! Only the world’s most ruthless Warden can contain the world’s most ruthless inmates. Design and develop your personalized penitentiary in Prison Architect.

If anyone who got last weeks TheHunter: Call of the Wild is interested in playing some coop with me, please leave a message in the thread I posted over in the forums HERE; I'll then contact you via the email you've used for your forum sign in and I'll send you a link to my Discord channel and make some arrangements to play. I've been playing the game regularly since June this year (accruing over 600 hours of game play). I've found playing with friends much more enjoyable.
The best Indie Bundles sites that have been operating from around 2011 are the Humble Bundle and Indie Gala sites where you'll sometimes find decent bundles with over 90% off the usual price of the games included in the bundles. The Humble site is in my opinion the best. A more recent addition that is worth checking out are the Fanatical bundles (used to be called Bundle stars)that you can find HERE (thanks Delenn for reminding me of this bundle, I've just recovered my account and found thousands of unused Steam keys listed from various bundles I purchased from 2012 to 2017).

It doesn't show the 2 icons left and right but if you know where they are, no problem.
It crashed on the first "level" on the last game of the first page and I had to abort the computer. Will try again later to see if I can get past this.
