Mahjong Titans is a computer game version of mahjong solitaire developed by Oberon Games and included in Windows Vista and Windows 7 Home Premium, Business/Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate, but it can run in Windows XP, too. The game takes advantage of the new graphical user interface (GUI) of Windows Vista, and includes features such as tile set and background choices.

Features

The player has a choice of six tile layouts - Cat, Turtle, Crab, Dragon, Fortress and Spider, each a stylised portrayal of the respective object or animal. The background image can be chosen from five different options and there are four tile sets, including traditional Mahjong tiles, variations with fuller colouring or larger print, and an alternative pastel tile set with an entirely different picture theme.

Games are not totally random. To see this, look at the topmost 5 tiles in the turtle layout There will always be at least one pair within these 5 tiles and often two pairs. It is believed that the algorithm for tile organisation positions tiles such that it is possible for every game to be won despite apparent increased difficulty with many games. Moves can be undone (Ctrl+Z) to try alternative tile combinations, however the score will be debited more than what was credited by that move.
