In my opinion any game with ‘fun’ and ‘mahjong’ in the same sentence is a contradictory statement, you can only have fun or mahjong, never both.
The Maw is the interesting release. It is a rather attractive action-platformer developed by Twisted Pixel Games, where one brightly-coloured blob controls a much bigger brightly-coloured blob that eats everything.
You gain powers via eating things in your quest to help the small brightly-coloured blob back home. I have no idea what to make of this, Eurogamer awarded it a respectable 7/10 and called it a ‘satisfying flurry of amusement’. So if you seek amusement flurried at you in a satisfying way, be sure to pick this up.
