Moonlight Mahjong

2.1
09 October 2014

3D mahjong solitaire game.

Overview

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:

Scramble Mode (the default): Make matches faster than the automated opponent "Tilebot" through increasingly difficult levels. The board is automatically reshuffled when you run out of matches, making this game mode easy (to start!) and fun. Once you have scored high enough in the game, you can also start on Level 11 with "Lion Scramble" or Level 21 with "Dragon Scramble" modes.

Challenge Mode: Compete against Tilebot in full puzzle mode, with no automatic reshuffling, only undo. Challenge requires more strategy than Scramble.

Puzzle Mode: Solve puzzle boards with no time limit. Choose any layouts you like; no high scores.

Relaxation Mode: Clear boards with no time limit and automatic reshuffle when out of matches. Perfect for when you're just not in the mood to strategize or rush.

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.

I've been a fanatic of 3D interfaces for over a decade. Why they aren't already standard in OS X and in a multitude of applications is beyond my comprehension. We live in a 3D world. Let's work in 3D on our computing devices already! Sticking to 2D, or even worse 1D thinking is ridiculous. Therefore, despite the well described minor problems with this game, I consider it to be BRILLIANT! I enjoy playing it immensely. The best feature is having to manipulate the wonderful models to discover available tiles you'd never see in a mere 2D game. This game proves that all the gestures required to manipulate a 3D GUI exist right now and they're FUN! I highly recommend this game to every living Mac user if only to get everyone used to 3D interfaces and what we can do right now with them by way of touch and gestures. Please developers! More applications and games like this ASAP! Thank you Michael Howard for this great idea and great implementation AND making it free. It's worth paying for! (^_^)

Perfection is not of this world. This is a great free application. I don't see the cheating errors anyway,

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.
