Shanghai has always been a decent mind-boggler. Now the 3DO version takes the classic game and spices it up. There is an Arcade Mode that you Can try, in which you travel across China, also timed, forcing you to make quick decisions. There are two new Shanghai-based games. One is like Tetris, and the other has you sliding rows of blocks jalong with matching them up. All three offer players a lot of challenging fun.
There are also three types of tile patterns to choose from so you don't strain your eyes staring at confusing patterns.
All in all, a highly-recommend puzzler.
Ever since the Lynx version came out, I've been a fan of this most-excellent puzzle game.
The music in this one is only average. A diversity of tracks would have improved this one.
Clearing away all but two tiles, and they're on top of one another. It's a no-win situation. Aaaargh!
