Mahjong World Contest 2
In Brief
A generic Mahjong Solitaire game.
Installation Issues:
The game installs to the following path by default, but can be changed if you wish. The installed game is approximately 53.6MB in size.
C:\Program Files (x86)\MyPlayCity.com\Mahjong World Contest 2
Four shortcuts are installed to the desktop; the Play Online Games, MyPlayCity Games and shortcuts to a free online game; the name of which may vary each week can be deleted once the game has been installed. The Themida wrapper may alert your security and even block the installation. There are details in the read me about this issue.

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)

Problems getting the game to work:
If you're having problems installing or activating or getting Mahjong World Contest 2 to work please visit the FAQ's Thread HERE and read through the communities comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted, for example, a common issue seen since the Themida wrapper was introduced three years ago is that some community members installation of the game are blocked by their security because Themida code has been known to hide malware, (usually an error message is flagged for example 'The executable is corrupted' even though in reality it is not); so as a precaution some anti malware programs will block and even delete the suspect installation files even though the files (i.e. the setup, read me and setup.gcd files are actually totally free from malware. This issue can be solved either by rebooting your computer in safe mode with networking or a quicker method is to temporarily turn off your security software to allow the installation. You could also try white-listing the setup.gcd file. In the almost 12 years this game giveaway site has been operating there has 'never' been a game given away that was infected with malware.
If for any reason you want to contact the giveaway team, for example, you have a game to offer the community, or are unable to download the latest game or other issues that the FAQ's thread or these comments don't cover or solve you can do so HERE

Thanks for review & user comments. My initial take on the title was Oh I like this genre but do I want to be playing in some world online contest? Glad I read about how it's solitaire format as usual. Have played a few of this style with enjoyment. Main nag is how sometimes can be tricky in some versions to tell diff among the 'related but dissimilar' images such as the flowers, seasons, etc. They look like a match pair but aren't so cause time pressure loss if that's part of your game setup. Prefer playing nice and slow, at least until get the hang of identifying those pairs. Good play for bitter East Coast weather extended weekend.

Not a bad Game, I found it quite easy, completed the first 5 games, managed to get 14 out of 15 stars, as W/R said unless you are fast it is really hard to get all 3 stars on each game, no doubt it will get harder, but I am up for a challenge. Simple quick download all you need to do is click on Setup.exe from the folder it was downloaded to (mine is default to games downloads), then it defaults to C drive unless you have multi drives, then you can save were you want, game loads quick and has nice graphics, music can be annoying so I turned it off, all in all a fun game, give it a go.
