Full Specifications

What's new in version 3.0
Version 3.0 supports iOS 7 and contains many improvements inspired by iOS 7s clean new design. 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. Completely reworked physics engine for touch movement: Moonlight Mahjongs touch controls seemed pretty good for the last five years, but iOS 7 has raised the bar. Moonlight Mahjongs new custom physics engine is more responsive and precise, and includes momentum and boundary effects. Motion Effects: On supported devices with iOS 7, turning the screen shows a subtle 3D effect similar to the iOS 7 home screen. This is not used to play the game, it just adds a sense of dimensionality and makes the graphics pop. Plus its cool. The default control scheme for new users is now Single Finger Controls: drag one finger on any tile to turn the board; drag one finger on the background to move the board. This is what used to be called the Advanced control scheme; it makes it easier to play with one hand. The earlier standard control scheme is now called Two Finger Controls and is still available. The more obscure earlier touch control options have been removed, as they were not particularly useful and might confuse new users. Cleaner game dialogs closer to the style of iOS 7: The new game dialogs are actually pretty close to the original Moonlight Mahjong dialogs just better. Improved documentation: The documentation is now a single page, which is much easier to browse and navigate. Improved app icon: The app icon has been subtly redone in the proportions of iOS 7, using the new standard tile art. The icon is less obviously 3D than before, but not flat; 3D is fundamental to what this game is about. There is a small change to the rules governing what tiles are considered blocked. Tiles one level above on the left are now considered to be on the left, and tiles one level above on the right are considered on the right. This slightly changes how some boards are played. (Note: This change will be undone in the next update. It was discovered a little too late that it makes a couple layouts less interesting, notably 'I Love Mahjong', so we'll go back to the original rule.) Improved Alphabet tileset using the Helvetica Neue font, with tile texture and engraved detail. Using the Night Tiles tileset now darkens the background, for better use at night. Behind-the-scenes programming cleanup: Moonlight Mahjong is now over 5 years old, having launched with the opening of the App Store. The state of the art in iOS programming has advanced considerably in 5 years; its important for a number of reasons to try to keep up. iOS 5.0 or later is now required.
