World Mosaics 4
Much Improved Numbers Game.
I've only recently started enjoying this genre of game and am working my way up from the first in this series to, now, the current one.
The first 3 in this series, I thought, were great tutorials in and of themselves. Boring, but great tutorials for those who had never done these types of games before or maybe even those who were having problems.
In this, the 4th in the series, many upgrades and changes have been made to make the game not only more interesting and enjoyable, but equally as difficult (although a tutorial is recommended for beginners).
So far, in the World Mosaic world, this is my favorite. Holding out to try them all before I choose which ONE will be my purchase.
I do encourage everyone, beginners and non-beginners alike, to try the free, one hour demo. I think you will find it fun, relaxing and a new twist on an old numbers game.

Recommended only for those who have not played the first and second
Disappointing! The third and fourth are not as challenging as the 1st and 2nd.
I love World Mosaics, unfortunately is getting easier. Just a few 20x20, and no need to think .. almost everything is completed, it becomes very obvious.

Does not live up to the past versions
I probably will not play this one through more than once. It goes back to 10 x 10 grids every level and that is really frustrating and a waste of time. They are just too easy and as far as I am concerned by the time we get to the 4th version there shouldn't be any 10 x 10 grids at all!

excellent logic game for young children
this game combines logic, travel and ancient artifacts into a lovely story. this is a picross game that relies on numerical/logical thinking to solve picture puzzles. by solving these puzzles, you obtain artifacts and restore them to their rightful places in the Atlantis World Museum.
graphics: bright and colourful -- they appear to be targeted to young children.
sound: the background music is clear and well-done.
i own a number of the world mosaics games and enjoy them, but this one is far far too easy for adults and experienced gamers. however, that said, this game will appeal to young children and could serve as a good introduction to logical thinking and to ancient history (and to video games).

Not the best in this series...
I really enjoy the World Mosaics series but this one is my least favorite. I don't care for the story as I found it quite boring and the images were not all that great. The boards start at 5X5 and go upwards however there are only a few 25X25 boards and I really wish there had been more challenge. I loved the fairy tale one in this series and the 5th one with the world holidays was fabulous but in this one, half the time I couldn't care less what I was making or it didn't look like anything when I finished. It took me forever to play this game and usually Im done with these games within a week because I love them so much. This one just does not live up to its other games. I can't recommend it.
