    • Levels
      • Levels are unlocked sequentially.
        • You always start off with the first level playable.
        • Finish one level to unlock the next.
        • Each level has a different configuration and time limit.
      • Each time you reload the game, you have 2 options:
        • Start the game from the beginning. This will clear your previous score.
        • Pick up from the last level you unlocked.
      • You can’t go back and replay previously beat levels unless you start the game over at the first level.
    • Basic rules
      • Match pairs of identical free tiles to remove them from the tower.
      • You can only match free tiles.
        • These are tiles that have nothing on top of them and at least one side (left or right) without an adjacent tile.
        • The game helpfully highlights all the free tiles onscreen with a lighter color background.
        • Tiles which are not open have a darker background color.
      • When no open tile pairs remain the game automatically shuffles the remaining tiles.
        • Conversely this means if the tiles are not automatically shuffled there is at least one match remaining.
      • Clear the entire stack before the timer runs out.
        • If you fail to finish on time, it’s game over.
          • You can always start again. 🙂
          • If you’d rather not, you can end the game and save your score on the leaderboard.
        • The first level gives you 4 minutes and 32 seconds to bring down the tower.
        • Later levels give you more time to whittle down the towers. The second level gives you 5:35.
        • If all tiles which remain on the level are under a single tower the level is considered beat since a shuffle would not enable any other tile pairs to be made.
    • Tips
      • Whenever possible try to match the tiles from the higher towers first so that you whittle them down before all the smaller supporting stacks are gone.
      • Some tiles are obfuscated by neighboring tiles on taller stacks. If you click on the edge of a tile you can barely see part of you can see what the whole tile looks like in the upper left corner of the screen.
      • Many tall towers have overlapping runs of sequential tiles on them. Whenever possible pair tiles from a tall tower with another tall tower.
    • Scoring
      • Your score is cumulative across all the levels you play.
        • Each pair you remove is worth 200 points.
        • You get a bonus of 10 points for every second left on the level’s timer when the level is beat.
      • You can save your score on the leaderboard by meeting the following conditions:
        • You finish all the levels.
        • You end the game after a game over.
    • Assistance
      • Hints
        • Hints cost 300 points.
        • Hitting the hint button will reveal one of the valid pairs you can make.
        • The game will highlight these onscreen with a magenta outline.
      • Shuffles
        • Shuffles cost 500 points. The game gives you a free shuffle if no free tiles are available.
        • Shuffling changes the position of all the tiles in the tower.
        • In most mahjong solitaire games, we discourage using the shuffle button due to the game automatically shuffling for you when you’re out of moves. This is not the case in tower mahjong games. As we’ll explain in strategy, there are times when shuffling can work to your advantage.
  • Strategy
    • Start from the taller towers first, then work your way down. Use the smaller towers to help whittle down the larger ones.
    • Larger stacks obscure your line of sight. Bringing them down makes the obscured stacks easier to see.
    • If the tallest tower doesn’t have anything for you to whittle down, it’s probably for the best to shuffle until you can get started.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for players who like Mahjong Solitaire games.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
