Like other mahjong themed games, Mahjong Alchemy is all about matching different tile sets. The game involves matching two tiles at the same time. It requires the player to diligently reduce all the various number of stacks of intricately colored tiles in an effort to complete each level, even while the clock gradually ticks down.
Due to its gameplay and approach, this game can also be considered to be somewhat similar to other Mahjong themed flash games, such as Mom Jongg and Mahjong Garden. However, what makes Alchemy unique is that it offers an interesting twist to traditional Mahjong. It uses Mahjong tiles to create a simulated brain teaser that will impress most puzzle lover.s Different puzzles and challenges are used for different levels, and the player is given the task of advancing through each level by eliminating identical pairs of tiles.
As simple as this may sound, the game is actually quite entertaining, but only if you enjoy puzzles and mahjong. On the other hand, the game is relatively easy to figure out and can be quite fun to play once you've mastered the basics. From there, you'll either enjoy it or you won't. It all depends on whether you enjoy these kinds of games.
It's important to point out also that this particular Mahjong game is first and foremost a brain teaser, and not a strict copy of the actual game. So if you're looking for an actual Mahjong simulator, it's best to look for it elsewhere. This game is designed for people who just want to have fun, and who don't mind tacky colored tiles.
Alchemy is designed to be fun by using several elements from other popular games, and for the most part, it works. The game offers a challenging enough gameplay to entertain even the biggest fans of flash Mahjong games.
