2024-03-02: The wiki ran out of disk space, so things were not working. This has been resolved by adding another 5GB of quota ;-) Thanks to Tim Lindner for reporting the issues. 2020-05-17: If a page gives you an error about some revision not being found, just EDIT the page and the old page should appear in the editor. If it does, just SAVE that and the page should be restored. OS-9 Al (talk) 12:22, 17 May 2020 (CDT)

Shanghai cartridge intro screen, and OS-9 alternate tiles game screen.

Shanghai is a strategy game that has appeared on many platforms, and quite a few Japanese arcade games. It is based on the oriental tile game Mah Jong, and is very addictive. New versions for current mainstream platforms are still being made today. The object of the game is two pull off matching tiles until the entire screen is emptied. You can only pull off from the left or the right, and only if the tile is not blocked in on those two sides.
The original cartridge version was later ported to OS-9 by Bill Nobel. A little later after that, Alan Dekok did some further modifications to the OS-9 version, allowing for different tile sets.
One interesting bit of trivia from the original cartridge game: there is a hidden, 3rd color set (besides the labelled RGB and Composite), which is a yellow shadow based color set. You have to select it from the main game screen, and it is in the upper left 1/4 of the screen.. in only ONE spot. See if you can find it, if you have the cartridge version!
