Since the first release of the game "Shanghai" in 1986 by Activision, two other titles have followed the great success of the original game. Two of the sequels, Shanghai II in 1990 and more recently, Shanghai III in 1993, have new improvements and action as found in arcade games.
Shanghai: Triple Threat is quite addictive like all other Mah-Jong games, but this version brings new features that really make a difference. First, there are 4 different games all based on Mah-Jong tiles: The Classic Shanghai, The Great Wall, Beijing and The Golden Tile, each one having similar rules with various gameplay. Second, Shanghai: Triple Threat offers three tile's set: Mah-Jong, Zodiac and Music with 42 types of tiles's for the first two and 41 for the last one.
There is also an arcade mode besides the original mode which forces you to remove all tiles within a limited time to move onto the next level.
With over 10 different soundtracks, a collection of pictures for the backgrounds and an intense gameplay, Shanghai: Triple Threat is the best of its generation. Definitively something to get if you like Mah-Jong!
