The player can play against one to three computer opponents[1] using the tiles associated with the Japanese variation of the game[3] This is also known as the 立直, リーチ (Ready Hand) variation. Spreading to most mahjong-related video games after this one, it has become the most widely accepted form of Mahjong to the Japanese gamer. The "tiles remaining counter" would serve as a reminder to players about the status of the deck.


1,450,000 copies have been sold in Japan.[4]
