Moonlight Mahjong – $0.99
I just downloaded this one too. I’m a fan of Mahjong games and have been having a good time with Mahjong Artifacts 2, so this seems like a good compliment to it.
Moonlight Mahjong is a 3D virtual reality version of the classic puzzle game Mahjong Solitaire. It is designed specifically for the iPhone and iPod Touch, to take full advantage of the advanced graphics and multitouch screen. Simple and intuitive touch gestures allow you to tilt and turn, zoom in and out, allowing you to more easily see the tiles on the board. The controls just get out of your way until you’re ready to use them. The app launches quickly and always remembers your place in the game – allowing you to pick it up and play anytime, whether for a few seconds or a few hours. And because it is truly three dimensional, Moonlight Mahjong allows you to play elaborate (and fun) tile layouts that other “flat” versions of Mahjong Solitaire simply can’t handle.
Relax, as there are no time limits (unless you want them). Just sweep around the board using one- or two- finger motions, and touch matching tiles to lift them away. Each board has a solution, but to find it requires both skill and an element of luck.
Moonlight Mahjong has been honored as a “Best Board Game” on the App Store, and was in the original Best 100 Apps and Games on iLounge.com. In addition to being a relaxing game, it’s a great way to show other people what the iPhone can do.
