Animal Connection is a cute and colorful introduction to Mahjong Connect tile matching games. Players can choose to play a quick match of a specified difficulty level, or go through a timed 30-level puzzle game.
Select matching tiles to remove them from the playing field.
Lines connecting the 2 tiles can not turn more than twice.
Some levels are timed, while others have no time limit.
On some levels when tiles are played the play has no impact on the remaining tiles, though on some levels tiles move to fill in a particular direction.

Gameplay Tips & Strategy
This game is a mahjong match game. Mahjong match games allow you to connect and remove tiles which:
touch via a single direct line
touch via a line which has 1 or 2 right angle turns in it
the pictures near the bottom of this article show a couple legal moves highlighted in white line segments with rounded circles at the ends.
Within this genre of games, some have boards that remain static, and other games have boards which slide in a particular direction as tiles are removed. This game has levels using both configuration options.
When scanning pieces to move, if you do not spot any easy pairs right off the start then look at pieces along the edges and around the corners.
Pieces which are on an outer edge can match any other piece on that same outer edge.
Pieces on corners have 2 different outer edges they can match against.
If a board has multiple rows with spaces between them try to take out the inner area first so that you create a broader cross section for matching in the outer rows.
Choose a difficulty level which suits your skill level. If you are not familiar with mahjong styled games choose easy or normal. If you are familiar with mahjong styled games choose hard.
Match pairs of tiles which you are able to connect with a line that turns no more than twice.
Pay attention to the level introduction advice. Some boards will remain static as you remove tiles, while other boards will slide left, right, up or down as you remove tiles.
When no tile movements are left the board will automatically reshuffle.
If you are stuck you can use up to three manually initiated reshuffles and three clues per level using the button in the upper right corner.
The game has a pause button in the upper left corner, but since the levels are not timed it doesn’t matter much.
Pay attention to the tips at the begging of the level to see which way tiles move, or if they stay still.
If tiles fall in one direction it often makes sense to use the pairs on the opposite side of the screen first & to make whatever pairs are possible upstream of tile movements.
Levels are timed. For the first 15 to 20 levels this should not matter too much, but for the last 10 or so it begins to matter much more.
There are clue and reshuffle buttons in the upper right corner. You can buy additional uses of each for 500 experience points. You gain experience by making matches and how much time you have left when you beat a level.
If there are no remaining matches in the current board configuration the game will automatically reshuffle the board’s layout. This will not cost you one of your shuffles.
If you lose on a puzzle you can replay the level and unlimited number of times.
If you like a previously beaten level you can go back and replay it as often as you like.
This game is lots of fun for all ages.
Younger kids will like the beautiful tile designs and the ease of play with no timer on easy mode.
Older kids and adults will enjoy the difficulty of the hard mode and higher numbered puzzles in the puzzle mode.
There are no adult topics in this game.
