Comments on: Review: Shanghai Pocket Essentials

Shanghai has been phenomenally successful as a computer game going back to the 80s. Many players find it as addictive as Solitaire. There have been versions of it available for the Palm OS for years but LandWare recently released a very professional Palm version based on the one from Activision . Pepper brings us this review.

p.s. Games make good gifts!

It is a great game, but keep plenty of spare batteries handy (or get rechargeables) - this game eats batteries like candy.

No Demo version

There is a 14-day free trial download on Landware's web site.

Shanghai is a great game and is extremely addicting! But the problems i found were that the tile patterns were to intricate on many of the sets that you couldn't distinguish between the tiles on the low res screen. They really need to add high res capability to it and it will get a two thumbs up from me... It does eat batteries like crazy though!

I downloaded the trial version as I too like this game, but I couldn't see the graphics on the tiles on my 505. I think it would be great on Sony's higher res screen.

Spelling error...

Hey Ed,

The word is "phenomenally." :)

I have not tried Landware's Shanghai and probably won't. Only because I've been using PalmJongg 4.0 for a long time and have registered it. Only $12, works fine on my Vx, visible with low res, and doesn't eat batteries. It might not have all the other features or it might, I use standard tiles on a standard background, not much more, and am very happy with it.
