"Dragon Vault" by Midnight Martian

This one's good and challenging.

"The Temple Of Zeus" by Terrell

It's the return of Massive Architecture Friday! Apparently not content with the humongous "Chichen Itza 2," Terrell created this 1400 tile behemoth. 1400 is almost 10 times the number of tiles in a standard layout (144). Version 1.3 can just about handle it, but if you actually try this one, you'll note that it's slow. There's only so much you can expect from an iPod, and rendering the "King of the Gods" in tiles is a challenge.

Requires Moonlight Mahjong 1.3 or later.

"Chichen Itza 2" by Tergo

This new take on the Chichen Itza layout features over twice the number of tiles, a cool stairway inside, and a sub-basement. At 864 tiles, this is the largest layout yet, at least as far as I remember...  it probably requires version 1.3 for its performance enhancements, to be playable.

Load this layout in Moonlight Mahjong on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

"Lithium" by Midnight Martian

It's an element used in certain advanced batteries. I don't know; the layout just came out looking like "Li".

I actually took time to win this one last night, and have the following screenshot to prove it:

"Bowl" by Midnight Martian

This is another of the new layouts coming in 1.3. Pretty simple design, obvious in retrospect.

Quick Update

Moonlight Mahjong 1.3 has been submitted, so please send positive thoughts in Apple's direction for its swift approval. It has scores and stats, some nice graphics improvements, and some new layouts that haven't appeared here yet, amongst other things.

I'm going to start updating the MidnightMartian Twitter feed more, so follow it if you like. And in case you missed it, Tweetie is a nice iPhone app for using Twitter.

"Drag Race" by Tergo

This is a clever idea.

"Monastery Bell" by Midnight Martian

I think this is one of the best new layouts I've done in a while.
