Taipei is a mahjong matching game developed by Dave Norris and published by Microsoft in their Microsoft Entertainment Pack For Windows in 1989 and later included in their The Best of Microsoft Entertainment Pack bundle.

My first experience with Taipei was on our Packard Bell 386SX computer my parents bought for the family back in 1991. The PC was a showroom floor model and it came loaded with a little bit of demo software including the first Entertainment Pack.

Status

I do not own this game, but I have beaten a game for each layout.

Review

  • Overall: 4/10
  • Best Version: Windows 3

Good

  • The game is a fully competent mahjong matching game.
  • The addition of several layouts was nice.
  • This version also lets you specify which seed number you want to play.
  • For only 16 colors and a tiny resolution, the graphics are quite clear.

Bad

  • The game is lacking in media. There are any sounds, music, or animation.

Ugly

  • Nothing.
