Only one fail, but it's major

I was so excited to see this game on my phone. Back when computers were new (OK, new ish) I played the heck out of Mahjong. Card games and other similar ideas have always been my games of choice, causing me to think and rarely getting boring.
This game is no exception. Set up just like other Mahjong games you've seen, the tile patterns change and even get more difficult. But there's one problem with this app that makes it less than useful.
Mahjong can be hard enough on a full size computer screen, but put this game on your phone and with the graphics set as they are in this app, it's virtually impossible to tell what level a tile is on. In other words, is this tile above the other tiles and thus you can get to it, or is it on the same level.
What I'd guess would be some simple graphics tweeks could make this problem go away completely but until it does you'd better have some really perfect eyesight to use this game.
Oddly the game let's you reshuffle the tiles when you run out of moves. Something I wouldn't likely do, except for the fact that I'll never win until I can see the tiles clearly. Time to find another Mahjong game with better graphics!
