This is a 100-level Mahjong inspired game where players have a tile holder which holds up to 7 tiles at a time. Tiles contain cute cartoon animal pictures where players must first remove the lighter colored tiles from the top row to uncover the grayed out tiles underneath.
Make groups of 3 of the same tile in your tile holder to remove them from the game.
Repeat the process until all tiles are removed from the level.
In some cases you will have to remove tiles from the top that you can not match up right away to be able to play tiles under them, then later match up the earlier tiles as you reveal more tiles.

Cute Animal Tile Based Matching Game Play Instructions
How to Play
Click on light colored tiles to remove them from the playing field. Use the 7 slots in your tile holder to make pairs of 3 until each level is beat.
Starting the Game
Click on the yellow button with the black arrow on the welcome screen to start the game.
If it is your first time playing the game this will start the first level, which also serves as a tutorial.
The game has 100 levels across 11 chapters. Each level must be beat to unlock subsequent levels.
Your local web browser automatically stores your game progress.
Each time you complete 9 levels the game welcome screen reveals a full picture for that chapter which was hidden under tiles.
Left click on a tile to remove it from the playing field. It will then be stored in your tile tray which can hold a maximum of 7 tiles.
When you have 3 of the same animal in the tile tray that set is removed from the game and those positions are opened back up to place more tiles in.
Use your finger like a mouse.
Winning vs losing
You beat a level when all pieces are removed from the playing field.
When you beat a level you can click the play button to start the next level.
You lose on a level if you use up all 7 spots in your tile holder and there are still pieces remaining on the board.
If you lose a level you can restart it again by clicking on the rounded circle button.
The game has 2 buttons at the top of the screen.
The left button drops down a menu to either return to the game welcome screen or restart the level.
The right button turns sounds on or off.
This game has 3 buttons at the bottom of the screen.
The first button allows you to undo your most recent move.
The second button allows you to pull 3 tiles off the game.
The third tile allows you to buy a tile shuffle.
Start from the highest row: If there are more than 3 of a specific animal showing at any given time you are typically best off removing the animals from the highest elevation row first so you uncover more of the playing field.
Play the right piece: This game has 14 different animals in it: zebra, rhino, dolphin, cow, giraffe, sloth, snake, pig, penguin, walrus, parrot, monkey, duck, and rooster.
This means the odds of a similar tile being under a tile are 1 in 14, though pieces are off centered between rows, so you can see what is under a piece before you pick it up, making it easy to see which pieces you may need to remove to complete other sets of 3.
Most tiles look quite distinctive, though if you are playing quickly and are rushed or distracted it can be easy to mix up the penguin and the dolphin.
Look at what you already have: If you already have a zebra or two in your tile holder it may make sense to try to match other zebra tiles before selecting other animals.
Know the game limits: your tile holder can only hold a maximum of 7 tiles. If you have more than 3 tiles in there be cautious about adding any others unless they help you complete a match.
Play nearby pieces: If multiple of the same piece are near each other then sometimes it makes sense to play the close by pieces instead of further away pieces as removing a number of pieces in one area will uncover many other pieces which were hidden underneath.
Undo: If you make a mistake do not be afraid to use the undo button or restart the level.
This game is not timed & is quite easy.
The cute animal pictures makes it fun for kids, while the increasing difficulty as you advance through dozens of levels makes the game appealing to older players.
A nice feature of this game when compared to many Mahjong games is you can easily and instantly tell which tiles are playable as the open tiles have a bright background color.
Tiles which are gray can not be played until the bright tiles above them are removed from the playing field.

This is a variation on the mahjong solitaire theme with a twist. Your goal is to clear the pile of animal tiles by matching three of a kind. Seems easy enough, right? Well, you only have seven slots. You might start with a rather poor selection of tiles and need to use those extra slots. Fortunately, you only need to uncover a time to make it playable.
This is a very simple, relaxing game, but not one that’s devoid of strategy. If there aren’t any available tiles to match, you have a few chances to take out tiles. These might yet reveal compatible tiles. Make sure that you uncover tiles in a way that opens up more tiles that match. Always keep at least two blank spaces for tiles of the same kind.
Unlike other mahjong solitaire games, you must pay for undos. You earn coins to pay for these moves by winning other games.
