It's strange that they would release the sequal before the original

I'm happy with Mr. Mahjong, so unless someone says this game is absolutely astounding, I'll probably pass

yeah it is strange. Maybe 2 different development teams, one was a little quicker than the other. lol The other one had a few flaws I wonder if they have addressed those complaints people had in this one. (such as the tiles being too small)

so is this better than chapter 2? i am not sure which to get, mister mahjong seems good, but it is unclear how many levels are actually included, as some of the "packs" actually requires in-app purchase.

Mr Mahjong comes with 100 in game levels / layouts. You can purchase additional ones ABOVE the 100. There isn't a story mode so depends what you look for in one of these types of games. I am enjoying Mr Mahjong however immensely. Different than the other Mahjong games. And I am also confused because I already BEAT a Mahjong Artifacts game!
