Delicious! Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire from eastasiasoft is a new take on the tile-based game. Check our Delicious! Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire review!
Delicious! Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire from eastasiasoft is a Rated M for Mature puzzle game out now on PlayStation 4. It’s a release based on the classic tile-based game in which you have to match pairs of tiles to remove them from the playing area. The game was developed way back during the Quin Dynasty in China hundreds of years ago. While it’s usually taken on by various players at once, the version we’re getting on Sony’s console is for the solitaire variety, so it’s going to be you racing against the clock to try and get as high a score as possible. Whenever you clear a pair of tiles, some extra time will be added to your total.
You must remove all tiles from the playing area before you run out of time. If you can’t, then you’ll get a game over. If you run out of potential pairs to clear from the playing area, then you get a game over. There are three rounds to play for each stage, and unless you clear all three rounds, you will need to start all over again. For a tile to be removed, there must be an open slot on either the right or left side of said tile. No tile must be on top of a tile you want to remove since this would go against the previous rule.
The fan service part of the equation comes into play when you meet each of the nine girls the game presents. As you match tiles and perform combos during the last round of a stage, each of the girls will change into new outfits – usually more revealing outfits. There will be a glowing bar that will move from top to bottom over each girl, and as it does this, it will have the girl change into a new costume in real-time. There are several costumes to unlock, and with 100 different tile layouts to play, there’s a lot of replay value for this one.
This is the latest puzzle game from eastasiasoft that leans on the fan service side of things, after giving us block-pushing puzzle game Crawlco Block Knockers on Nintendo Switch, as well as Qix-inspired puzzle game Bishoujo Battle Cyber Panic! on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. While Bishoujo Battle Cyber Panic! is rated T for Teen, Crawlco Block Knockers did end up with a Rated M for Mature rating on Nintendo’s console, skipping on a PlayStation 4 release, which was also the case for Waifu Uncovered, which released last year.
As was the case for Bishoujo Battle Cyber Panic!, Delicious! Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire also includes a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy waiting for you. The trophies are split into eleven Gold trophies and a single Silver trophy, which you’ll unlock as you progress through the game and the first and second stage for five specific girls – Rui, Yuno, Mei, Bell, and Hiromi, as well as complete the first stage for two other characters – Megumi and Erty. Do all of this, and you’ll have a new Platinum in your collection!
Delicious! Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire is a solid Mahjong game on PlayStation 4 that might rub some people the wrong way, given its fan service side and the different costumes that you can unlock for each of the girls. If you’re having trouble with some of the stages, you can change the difficulty to remove the time limit while also adding two handy features: pressing the Triangle button to get a hint on any potential tile pairs or pressing the Square button to shuffle the pieces so that you can get a chance to find some pairs before you run out of options. Delicious! Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire is a budget release with a low $5.99 asking price, and it’s ready for you on PlayStation 4.
