Double is a Mah-Jongg clone which I've always found better than actual Mah-Jongg games: the tiles are easily more distinguishable than regular Mah-Jongg tiles, particularly for those who are unfamiliar with the game. My grandmother could never get into Mah-Jongg, but Double became one of the first games that she really got hooked on when she got her Mac.It has its flaws and hasn't been updated since the Mesozoic era, but then... how much updating can you really do to a simple tile match game that works under both OS9 and OSX.
One question: Is this officially abandonware or what? It's been two years, and it hasn't been updated.
Don't get me wrong, I like double, but....
1) maybe more variety of icons would help..
2)coming with the other layouts already preinstalled would be nice.
3) I don't need a conformation dialog box to do everything! If I want to quit, start a new game, I don't want to have to okay it every time! Just do it! That kind of stuff PPEEEEEEEEEVVEESS me, so if I can turn it off in any way, shape, or form, I do. Unfortunately, that's not an option here.
I've said all I wanted to say about the state of Mahjong gaming on the Mac. See my review of Ambrosia's Aki Mahjong.
Now if you want to see a different kind of Shanghai, try this:
This game is very cute. The graphics make it most suitable for children. I only wish there were more Icons and tile layouts. Having to drag on tile over the other is also a little annoying (I think this is mostly because I am just used to clicking on the two) Also a cheat(match) function would be helpful.
You want more than 15 different layouts??? *you* can pick your tiles!!! You **DON'T** have to drag - check the preferences; read the instructions!!!
