Shishen Sho Mahjongg for Gtk and Maemo

Shishen Sho Mahjongg is a board game similar to Mahjongg. The goal is to remove all the tile pairs. Two tiles can be removed if a line with a maximum of three segments can be drawn between them.

Both the idea and the tile images were taken from kshishen (Shishen Sho 1.5.1), from the package kdegames, which is (C) 1997, Mario Weilguni and distributed under GPL license.

My girlfriend and me are fans of kshishen, so I needed to make a Maemo version to let her play on the N810 internet tablet, free my laptop and let me work on it. O:-)

The game is written in Vala and licensed under the GPL. Vala is a programming language that produces C/GObject source code which can also be compiled independently without the need of the original Vala compiler. Currently, two platforms are supported for the game: i386 (a desktop distribution, eg: Ubuntu Feisty), and also Maemo platform (armel).

21/04/2008 UPDATE: New version 0.1.1 available. Features improved compilation scripts, improved debian package structure and proper installation support from Maemo application manager.

Feel free to send me your comments, suggestions or patches over the original Vala sources. I hope you enjoy the game as much as I enjoyed writing it. 😀
