Get ready for a one-of-a-kind Mahjong game that you certainly will find difficult to stop playing once you’ve started. This game is named Ancient Odyssey Mahjong, and there are plenty of things about it that should touch you to the core.
Okay, so, first, look the game up on Facebook. It’s a unique game so it should be easy to find. Once you found the App Page, you have two options – Play Now, which will launch the game on the browser you’re at, or Play on Gameroom. This will launch an instance of the new app from Facebook, through which you can play your favorite games in a dedicated browser.
The second option is only applicable if you have the app installed on your laptop or desktop, of course.
Most games would launch a tutorial on how to play themselves, which can be tedious for some who are already used to the gameplay of Mahjong hits. Not here in Ancient Odyssey Mahjong – you’re launched right away into one of the most unique adventures you could embark on in a game of Mahjong.
So, the premise of the game is that you are ancient traveler who is journeying to ancient China. Each level, of course, is a step in your odyssey into one of the oldest civilizations in the world. You won’t feel it in the first few levels, but as you go along, the levels just get harder and harder.
The game follows the mechanics of every one of its contemporaries. You look over the layout and see which tiles can be freed by pairing them up with their twins. Being able to eliminate a tile will free up the ones next to it or, if it belongs to a stack, under it.
For experienced players, however, the progressively increasing challenge is but a breeze but slightly less experienced gamers will want to know what the game is all about first before giving it a spin. Under the game’s rules, you will not be able to free up a tile if it is under another tile, or is bordered on all sides by one or more tiles. Thus, you will need to focus your efforts on freeing up obstructed tiles so they can be matched up and taken off the game board.
The game makes sure that you strategize and not just removes indiscriminately. It keeps track of the number of pairs that you can make from the current layout. If you just remove tiles without planning, you are going to bring that number down to zero and end your game prematurely.
Here’s another thing unique in this game: in order to progress to the next level, you will need to enter a code that’s generated at the end of each level that’s successfully negotiated. You can enter that in the next level to unlock it. You can also choose to save the code if you want to continue playing the next day.
Last but not the least, you’ll find navigating through the game’s isometric view a fresh visual experience. The tiles are tiled at an angle, giving it a slightly three-dimensional look. However, it doesn’t have the 3D camera that some Mahjong games have.
With a fresh new visual layout, familiar gameplay mechanics and amazing loading speed, you won’t find Ancient Odyssey Mahjong a bore. Give it a try now!
