Mahjong Titans not in Win 8.1

I must confess that when I had Win 7 I played Mahjong Titans a great number of times. Now that I have Win 8.1 I would like to download a version of Mahjong Titans (or very similar) can anyone point me in the direction of a safe download?

Windows 8.1 just go to the apps store and type Microsoft mahjong in the search bar.

Whereas I have moved to Win 8.1 I have only been using the desktop side of things and am not particularly enamoured with the other side - I have yet to be convinced about it. Will look at it nevertheless. Thanks

Have already googled for it but there is such a proliferation that is why I posted the query here.

Remember the question very well. I only played Mahjong Titans on Win 7 anyway. I am not a games person although I do remember many, many years ago there was a game called Purple Turtles which I played occasionally(??). I also had a programme that established the frequency of your use of programmes as well as the total time spent on those programmes. I tried it out the one day expecting it to tell me that my main use of the PC was spreadsheets and database use - it told me that I spent twice as much time on Purple Turtles than anything else - I was appalled at my idleness!! but continued to play Purple Turtles.

With regard to the move from Win 7 to Win 8.1, my opinions may be biased as I have now an SSD as well as a much faster processor and components. I download the Telegraph crossword every day and with my old PC - from pressing the PC start button to having the printout of the crossword in my hand would take approx. five minutes, with the new one it takes under 55 seconds.

I found the apps store somewhat unintuitive. I did download a game of Mahjong in the end from there, but I find the store not what I would call user friendly. I will probably be contradicted by others over this.
