In addition, if you want to customize the game’s look even further, you can easily change the playing area background and enable tile shadows from Mahjong!’s Options menu.

Mahjong! features minimalist and eye pleasing graphics, as well as beautiful tile clearing animation that give a subconscious feeling of fulfillment each time you remove a tile pair from the board.
Its simplistic yet well designed sound effects collection is yet another factor that makes playing Mahjong! such an enjoyable experience.
