KMahjongg – tile matching game

KMahjongg is a mahjongg solitaire game for KDE 4. Mahjongg is a famous ancient chinese puzzle game.

The object of the game is to remove all of the tiles from the board by selecting two free tiles of the same kind. A tile must have at least one side unblocked in order to be playable. There are four tiles for each character.

Flowers and seasons are different and have only one of each kind – therefore you can match any flower with any flower or any season with any season.

Features include:

  • Not every KMahjongg game can be finished. Sometimes the tiles are mixed in such a way that it may not be possible to find all the matches. However, the software has the ability to generate solvable games.
  • Undo and redo functionality.
  • Embryonic board editor
  • High score system based on time taken, tiles removed and penalties for using _cheats_.
  • If the player uses the “Hint” feature the record will not be considered as a high score.
  • Demo mode.
