Moonlight Mahjong is the popular 3D Mahjong Solitaire game created for the iPhone and iPad... now for OS X! Play arcade-style with progressively difficult levels, or relax with one of the non-competitive game modes. The gameplay is simple yet addictive.

Originally created for touch-screen iOS devices, Moonlight Mahjong on the Mac takes full advantage of a multitouch trackpad, but also can be played with a mouse. Intuitive control allows you to tilt and turn in virtual reality, allowing you to more easily see the tiles on the board.

Moonlight Mahjong on the Mac features four types of play:

What's New

Version 2.0:
  • New standard tile art replaces 'Engraved Marble' as the default: The new standard tile art uses a much cleaner, subtler tile texture, which makes the tile details stand out clearly. This is combined with specular lighting and engraved detail for realism. (Note: The earlier marble tile set is still available in the options if you prefer that for some reason.)
  • Completely reworked more...

There is a fundamental error within this game.. which can be seen from the snapshot provided on macUpdate: You can identify tiles by their corresponding marble texture. I can identify ALL tiles by looking at their sides.

A simple solution would be to use multiple materials. A base material, your marble texture, which can be applied with random settings. Then, your tile texture and normal map.

Bravo, Kamuela. I'm greatly impressed with the acuity of your vision. But now I'll always feel as though I'm cheating – am I?

Nice, but overall not to my taste. As noted by others, I prefer all core functions by on the screen as buttons, links, context menu options, etc. I'm not a fan of shortcuts as a first line control model.

As to the 3D, it has been pushed too far in this application. Such frills quickly reach overkill and produce interference in functionality and ease of use where board, tile, dice, and card games for computer are concerned.

For free (at least for now), this is pretty sweet. I would request that the game have an auto-pause feature, rather than having to either press the key combo or select "pause" from the menu. (Or, at least, add a "pause" button to the main screen.) It was a bit annoying to leave the game, come back, and discover it was already over. (That was before I discovered the pause requirement.) But overall, this has nice graphics and game play options.
