iPhone:

Mahjong Artifacts® (Full) ($2.99 → Free, 63.4 MB): Explore five exotic cultures in this digital version of Mahjong. It’s ideal for tile matching fans who want something a little different.

Mahjong Artifacts can be played three different ways. You’re able to go on the hunt for lost relics in the story mode and complete 25 layouts using special tiles. The classic mode is your standard affair with 100 total layouts. Once you’ve completed all of the layouts, the innovative endless mode will be unlocked and waiting for you. The game also includes hints, five tile sets, and 27 backgrounds.

Universal:

Slice & Splice ($0.99 → Free, 21.2 MB): Do your best Edward Scissorhands impression in Splice and Splice. It’s a fun distraction for fans of Tangram-like puzzle games.

Use your fingers to slice up basic shapes and reassemble their pieces to fit within the silhouettes. Each shape displays the available cut lines, and all you have to do is slide your finger over them to chop them up. You’ll see how many cuts you’re allowed at the very top of the screen. Pieces can also be rotated in order to properly fit within the silhouettes. The game includes 240 levels, hints, stat tracking, and Game Center integration.

Each puzzle features a 3-D outline of an animal in its environment. You must try to fit the pieces located at the bottom of the screen into the puzzle at the top. The catch is that the pieces themselves can’t be rotated, only the 3-D object can. The game includes three categories, more than 70 puzzles, and puzzles that become more difficult as you progress.
