Are you planning on bringing Bonny's Triplet and Mahjong Triplet to the iPhone/iPod Touch?

I was getting all excited thinking they were bringing an actual Mahjong game to the iPad. It appears they are really bringing another tile matching Mahjong game, like Shanghai and the many since not like "GENUINE Chinese style" Mahjong, which is a completely different game. I like those, but it would be nice to see a good Mahjong game as well. The advertising is what confused me.

On the bright side, this sounds like a nice twist on Mahjong tile matching. If the quality is good and it plays well, I will be very interested.

hi Finandir,

thanks for your comment. i got you. we are not sure about how big the REAL Mahjong market is and will be, that's why we did not make that. if you could share with us your opinion more on it, we will really appreciate. BTW, our adviser highly, almost furiously recommend we make a REAL mahjong game. so if we start, we will make it really fast.
get back to Mahjong Triplet. i believe the core value of this game is the tile lib feature. with this, this game becomes unique because you must be strategical to win. to be frank, i failed a lot in hard mode...

I agree 100%. I was hoping to see a real iPad Mahjong game. I play quite a lot with my wife's family (they are from Shanghai and Hong Kong). I'd love to get a great looking iPad game of MJ with a solid AI engine.

David_T: if you ever get to build that kind of app, let us know!

P.S. Hey Finandir...there *are* some real MJ games on the app store. I have China Mahjong 2, which runs OK on the iPad. I also just stumbled across Four Winds Mahjong for the iPad. It's $5.99 and I have not checked it out yet, but I may. The link is: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/four-winds-mahjong-for-ipad/id392500805?mt=8

Update - I tried that Four Winds app, and it needs a fair bit of work. Gameplay is OK, but it feel more like a prototype than a robust MJ app.
