Title Shanghai Game Type Puzzle Players 1 or 2 Company Activision Compatibility All HD Installable Yes Submission Chris Vella Profiled Reviewer Review The ancient Chinese game of tiles. This is a game where you have a board full of stacked tiles and must attempt to remove 2 of the same tiles. The tiles must be "free" meaning that either the left or right side of a tile must not be touching another tile. When you click the mouse on 2 free identical tiles, they will dissappear. Clear all the tiles on the board and you will win the game. The tiles are stacked in a pyramid and removing a top tile will reveal titles that are beneath it. There are 4 identical tiles for each pattern and many times 3 of them will be free, you will have to select the correct 2 or you may get stuck because you may leave yourself with no more matches, if this happens you lose the game. The computer randomly generates the stacking of the tiles and the game will never play the same twice. I sometimes feel that the computer puts me in an impossible position to win but I can't be sure. There is a menu option that allows you to backup a move or show you all moves. If you use the show moves option you will not be allowed to enter your name in the high score. The graphics are basic and sound is non existent but this type of game doesn't need either one of them, it's all about playability and boy does this game sure have that. The game is very addictive and will keep you thinking throughout the whole game. Many times I thought that I had no more moves only to select the show moves option and having the computer show me a move that I somehow didn't see. Believe me, this will happen to you too. Complete the game by getting rid of all the tiles and you will feel a sense of accomplishment. In conclusion, This game is a very good game. I know there are lots of clones in the Public Domain and many are very good also, but none of them really add anything new. This is the original! and what all the clones are trying to be. If you can find this game for a cheap price then buy it. But if you can't, then check out the Public Domain and get the next best thing for nothing.
