Mahjong Treasure Quest takes classic mahjong and adds cute graphics and a fun storyline. The game has a new arrangement of tiles each level. The goal is to clear the tiles by finding matching pairs. The player must beat some levels within a time limit and collect tiles in a specific order in others. The game also offers daily quests, side quests, item collection, and special events. There are in-game purchases. The ESRB gave Mahjong Treasure Quest an E for Everyone rating. Although an 8-year-old can benefit from the skills practice this game offers, the levels get hard quickly, and LW4K recommends Mahjong Treasure Quest for ages 10 and up.

Mahjong Treasure Quest helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Mahjong Treasure QuestFocus

Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks.

Mahjong Treasure Quest puts dozens of tiles on the game board, asking the player to find matches amidst a sea of kanji symbols and drawings. If the player is going to be successful, they must be able to sustain their attention on short-term tasks. They'll need to stay focused, ignoring internal and external distractions, or they might run out of time or make the wrong match. In either case, the lack of focus will make a puzzle difficult, or impossible to solve completely. A lack of focus can also result in the player not earning as many points, which means fewer stars and fewer collectible ingredients and, eventually, being unable to advance to higher levels until a gate has been unlocked by collecting the right number of stars.

Working Memory

Recalling and retaining information in our minds while working.

Another important aspect of Mahjong Treasure Quest requires working memory skills. It is necessary for the player to work to improve their forgetfulness and use their visual memory to remember where they have seen a three dot tile to match the three dot tile they just uncovered (for example). The more they use these skills, the faster they will make their matches and the more stars they will earn. It is also important to be able to follow directions (such as which order to collect the tiles in). If a player can't follow directions, the player will fail timed levels or levels that contain tiles that need collected in a certain order.
