Smack Mahjong game ships
Independent game and software developer Midori has announced the release of a new Mahjong game called "Smack Mahjong." Developed for Mac OS X, the new downloadable game is part of the company's Smack series, taking "the beautiful game tiles from the ancient game of Mahjong and puts them into the popular solitaire matching tile game that everyone is familiar with." Smack version includes three different tile designs to choose from: the classic white tiles, a black tile set for expert players, and an alphabet set designed for children. Smack Mahjong features relaxing music to accompany game play, more than 50 layouts to play and an in-game editor that allows gamers to create/design their own tile layouts. Smack Mahjong is available for $20.
