The game also has other game control button
at the top of the screen to control sound or exit the game
on the right side to restart the level or shuffle tiles
If you are having trouble making out Chinese writing or symbols some tiles have a small number or letter in the upper left corner.
Precise matching vs concept matching
Some pieces do not need to precisely match to count as a match. For example, some pictures with scenes on them of things like trees.
For pictures of dragons you do have to match colors.
If you quickly match multiple pairs of tiles you are awarded bonus points.
If the bonus is set to zero you can look for multiple consecutive pairs to quick so you get a bonus on the second pair you click subsequent to the first pair.
Choose a board level which you find aesthetically pleasing and which matches your skill level.
If you are new to the game try to play a level which is classified as easy or medium.
If you are experienced with the game work on harder levels.
Many of the tiles in this game are Chinese themed with Chinese characters on them or pictures of animals popular in Chinese culture like Dragons.
People who like traditional Chinese culture will find these tiles appealing.
