Moonlight Mahjong is Mahjong Solitaire in virtual reality 3D, designed specifically for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Intuitive touch control allows you to tilt and turn, zoom in and out to match tiles in 3D. Play “arcade style” with progressively difficult levels and high scores, or relax with one of the non-competitive game modes. The gameplay is simple yet addictive.
Moonlight Mahjong features four main types of play:
• Scramble Mode: Match tiles 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, yet challenging on the higher levels.
• Challenge Mode: Compete against Tilebot in full puzzle mode, with no automatic reshuffling, only undo. Challenge requires more strategy than Scramble. This is the ‘pure’ form of the game, but it is difficult!
• Puzzle Mode: Solve puzzle boards with no time limit. Choose any layouts you like. This is the original game mode, what people usually think of as Mahjong Solitaire.
• Relaxation Mode: Clear boards with no time limit and automatic reshuffling when out of matches. Perfect for when you're just not in the mood to strategize or rush.
Feel free to download the free Lite version with ads, or purchase the paid version without ads. They are the same game; the paid version has a few additional features.
Moonlight Mahjong is the original 3D Mahjong Solitaire on iOS, having debuted with the launch of the App Store in 2008. It 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.

What's New in Version 3.1.3
By popular demand (plea, really): If you cancel out of the Game Center login, you will no longer see the Game Center login. To sign into Game Center after cancelling, go to Options -> Player and turn “Game Center Login” back on, and then exit and return to the app; or go to the Settings app under Game Center and sign in.
Also by request: If you attain the Dragon Master achievement (1,000,000 points in Scramble), you can now start at level 40.
Starting at Level 30 in Scramble is now enabled when you reach the Green Dragon achievement at 500,000 points - down from 600,000 previously.
You can now disable the parallax visual effect, if you don’t like it, under Options.
Tilebot should now always pause during the Game Center sign in.
This update is in direct response to user feedback. As always, your positive reviews are appreciated.
Although I play this game in Scramble or Lightening mode everyday as a way of keeping sharp, I have had enough of the intentional hiding of tiles to prevent progress. I have come across boards that hide a tile in such a position that even rotating in every direction will not let you see the face; I know this because I was able to free the tiles by trial and error method. The designers seem to have made it near to, if not impossible to succeed beyond a certain point and that detracts greatly from this game. Reaching the 50s level should be an achievement but the games seems to punish the player by progressively throwing you back to a novice level. This is a game designers, make it enjoyable!!
Great, addictive game, but...
I love this game, and I play it all the time. But please, designers, make an option where if the tilebot wins, you only get knocked back one level. I like the competitive element, but I hate losing so much progress based on one loss. It ruins the relaxing, fun element of the game to lose three levels. It would be a five star review from me if you added that option for those who hate losing three levels.
Edit: I think I'm done playing this game until the designers decide to listen to feedback and give the 1-level loss option. I end up getting too annoyed at the game for it to be fun anymore. It's a shame.
Awesome game. Tilebot does not pause
I love this game. But there is one thing about it that has bothered me for years now. When racing the tilebot (Scramble mode - which is the only way I play this game), if you pause the game, by locking your screen, for example, when you come back and unpause, you'll see a whole slew of tiles fly off of tilebot's pile. This happens every time. For me it's not a big deal until about level 40, at which point I can't afford to pause any game or tilebot wins since he keeps playing while I'm away. I would love to see this game truly pause when it is put into the background - either by switching to another app or locking the screen mid-game. Thanks for the great game, I hope you can fix this issue soon. :)
