Mahjong Connect is played with the classic mahjong tiles, but there is a twist. Every level the non-suited tiles can vary slightly, and sometimes unique tiles are added.
The goal of the game is to remove all tiles from the board. You can match identical tiles if there is a path with at most two turns that connects them.
If you can't see any moves you can use the Hint button up to six times throughout the whole game. After completing a level you get one more hint added, so you really must use them sparingly.
If there are no more moves available the tiles will shuffle themselves automatically without any penalty to you.
One hint is to scan around the edges of the layout for matches.
At the bottom of the screen you will notice a bar that represents the timer. You must beat each level before it runs out, however every time you match a pair you will receive some more time.
There are 12 levels in total with each level consisting of different tiles, and changes to the directions that the blocks move after being removed.
For the initial levels the direction of the blocks is as follows. Blocks fall downwards when they are removed on levels 1. They don’t move on levels 2 and 6. Blocks move upwards (the upper half) and downwards (the bottom half) when they are removed on level 3. Blocks move left (the left half) and right (the right half) on level 4. Blocks move from right to left on level 5.
You get 10 points for each pair removed. When you complete a level you'll get an additional time bonus.
You can select any visible tile with the mouse, there are no selection restrictions.
