Delicious! Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire combines cute anime girls (waifus) and the classic tile matching game to make a sufficient puzzle title for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

Appetizing! Simple to Learn

Mahjong solitaire is simple and addicting. Players have to match Mahjong tiles piled on top of each other to clear the board. Yet, players can still lose by running out of tiles to match. Delicious! adds a default playmode where players have a time limit to clear the board. However, players can actually gain time back by clearing tiles. When clearing a set, another timer gauge appears to give players a chance to make combos by clearing more tiles. The more tiles cleared at a fast pace, the more time gained back. When the main timer depletes or when there are no more tiles available to match, you lose. See? Straight to the point.

Based on your total score on time left, your score is recorded on the game’s leaderboard online. There’s no online or offline competition, but seeing as this is solitaire, this isn’t surprising. You’ll have to earn a top score for those bragging rights, though.

Easy mode takes the game at a slower pace. It’s great for those who do not want to be timed and just want to enjoy a relaxing puzzle game. Additionally, this mode offers players a set number of shuffles and hints to help complete the board. Since the timer is removed in this mode, you do not have the option to post your score on the leaderboard. If you’re looking to unlock every waifu’s board and unlock their outfits without the anxiety, this is the best option.

Both modes are riveting, but there’s a drawback based on the controls. The game’s cursor, which is used to help select tiles, is rather slow and can hinder your gameplay when under the timer. Without using a touchscreen like the Nintendo Switch’s screen, creating tile-clearing combos is challenging. The game does not offer the option for cursor speed, and it is definitely needed.

Luscious! Fan Service

What’s a waifu game without its fan service? In Delicious! Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire, you’ll meet nine (two hidden) pretty anime women who await you at each board. Clear the board, and you’ll unlock new outfits for your female companions. These new outfits can be viewed in the game’s Dressing Room mode. There’s not much else to it. When in the Dressing Room mode, you can zoom in and out on the character. It’s more eye candy than anything else, but that’s why you’re here, right? Still, when compared to a game like Waifu Uncovered, this is much more toned down. With the game costing $6.99 USD, it’s hard to pass up a puzzle game like Mahjong solitaire. However, there are no options to add additional waifus and boards as DLC at this time.

Tedious! Handheld vs Docked

Playing the game in either handheld or docked mode has its drawbacks. The touch screen capability works well in the Switch’s favor, especially with the game’s timer. However, its handheld mode can add eye strain when you have a waifu taking up half the screen and piles of small mahjong pieces on the other half.

This is where playing the game docked can help, as long as you have a larger screen to play on. Unfortunately, you’ll also lose the touchscreen capability to take out matching tiles quicker. You’ll have to rely on the game’s slow cursor speed.

The game stumbles without any options to determine which side should be more prominent, the waifu or the mahjong tiles. Based on the title, waifus changing their clothing or facial expression seems to take priority on the screen.

Delightful! The Final Match

Delicious! Pretty Girls Mahjong Solitaire is simple to learn and pretty entertaining, even if it lacks in gameplay options. If you enjoy waifus and puzzles, give this game a turn.
