      "Animal Snap: Rescue Them 2 By 2" is a video game released for the Gameboy Advance in 2003 by Ignition Entertainment. It is a puzzle game with Mahjong being featured. In the United States, the game received a rating of "E" by the ESRB panel which deemed it suitable for all ages. At first glance this game appears to be heavily geared towards children. The box art is gentle, the graphics are simple and the display is filled with colours at all times. Animal Snap is nothing more than a game of Mahjong solitaire using animal related tiles instead of Chinese imagery. Mahjong solitaire involves matching series of tiles of a same "suit" from an available large playing board. In Animal Snap, the player will match cats, dogs, lions, snakes and various oddball tiles like food related images and letters. It is generally a simple game which involves some element of strategy and conservation to successfully discard all tiles from play. The graphics of this title are very simple and reflect a typical puzzle title. The tiles are bright, colourful and feature well drawn images which are easy to differentiate. There is a sense of cartoon appeal to the graphics which could enhance the game with the younger marketplace. The audio track on the other hand is not particularly good. In a somewhat vintage presentation, the musical scores in this title reflect something that would have been heard ten years prior to release. The music is nothing more than a series of "beeps" which can become annoying to listen to. Overall, Animal Snap is an acceptable mahjong solitaire game which would likely entertain those who enjoy the game itself. It is relatively simple for a child to engage with but would likely see more success with an teen to adult player who is able to appreciate the concept.
