[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - Mahjong fans of all ages who want a fun and challenging new way to enjoy the essential tile matching game - and be blown away by spectacular graphics that they won't find in any other mahjong app available - can now download the new app Mahjong Prime 3D 1.0, and prepare to be amazed by what they see.
Created by BH Projects, Mahjong Prime 3D features stunning graphics that have to be seen to truly be appreciated, including high resolution tile sets, high quality tile models, reflections and stencil shadows. Gamers can chose from four play modes: classic, two turns, memory or two corner. They can also choose basic graphics, 3D graphics, or they can play in the shadows of Greek ruins or on the beach. Plus, the app's high score counter helps gamers test their improving mahjong skills game after game.
The first computer tile-matching solitaire majong game was created by Brodie Lockard and Brad Fregger in 1986. Brodie claimed that his game was the opening stack to an ancient solitaire game "The Turtle", which was played in China centuries ago. And now, BH Projects has brought a beloved, time-honored game into the modern age in a way that novices and experts alike will appreciate and enjoy.
"Quite simply, we feel that Mahjong Prime 3D is the last mahjong game that people will ever need!" commented Hugh Allan of BH Projects. "While retaining the fundamentals that make mahjong a popular pastime enjoyed by millions of people the world over, we've reinvented the look and feel of the game. Gamers who simply try Mahjong Prime 3D will never be able to go back to old-fashioned mahjong again!"
