Jig Swap Puzzle
Not the typical puzzle
I loved the different play on swapping tiles to create a photograph. I've seen these sort of puzzles in HOG games on occasion and can play them endlessly without tiring of them.
Wish I could find more just like it only with maybe a fantasy art theme. Similar game I recommend is, "Patricia's Quest for Sun."

unique puzzle game
This is the first time I ever seen this type of puzzle and it is awesome. I love the swap type puzzle instead of the jigsaw so this game has got me hooked right off but it goes much further. What's different, it has various stationary size blocks to swap out picture and if the correct picture piece is not inserted, picture piece expands or shrinks to fit the box size. Sometimes you can tell and sometimes you can't which makes it so challenging. No hints with twinkle so you don't know until whole puzzle is completed correctly to pass the level. You don't get to see the picture before hand so that adds to the mystery of where the pieces go. And if that is not enough for the classic mode, it has 2 more modes: timer mode and a strategy mode which counts moves made. Both run out a bar so too many moves or too much time means game over, whoopee that's what IM TALKING BOUT!!! FUN, FUN,FUN. Don't worry though it has easy, normal and hard option and continue. 3 modes and 3 difficulty levels what more can you ask for in a puzzle game? oh, picture packs. Well it has animal pack, flower pack and landscape pack. Picture dpi quality has room for improvement but can be forgiven with all the innovation this game offers.

Swap the pieces to make a whole picture.
The graphics can be a bit grainy and "older" looking, as in older gaming graphics. The music was suitably relaxing and definitely not annoying.
The game. Wow, wow, wow and wow again. The concept of the game is simple really. Swap the puzzle pieces until you have an entire puzzle put together correctly. Sound easy? NOT - LOL. The pieces are irregular. You may have a small square of a head of a panda but when you swap THAT particular piece with another, it may end up a large, skinny rectangle. And that's the joy and fun and entertainment of this game.
Swap and swap and swap as the puzzle pieces change and try to make a complete picture. You don't get a view of the picture to begin with so that's a challenge. No hint button either. And THAT'S also what makes this so much fun - you are totally on your own.
There are 3 categories - animals, flowers and something else (lol). Sorry, I was focused on the animals. Pandas, camels, and ice sculpture of a swan! Love, love, love this game and going on my wish list TODAY! I recommend this to anyone who loves swap mini games and/or puzzles in general. So much fun for everyone!

This is different from any kind of puzzle game that I have played before. You basically rearrange the pieces of a mixed-up photograph by swapping the pieces. One way to do this, besides using the picture as a visual cue, is to arrange them according to how distorted or askew the puzzle piece looks. For instance, if you swap a piece into a longer rectangle area that was meant for a square area the image may become too distorted or blurry. I found this challenging to do especially in timed mode. Since it such a different kind of puzzle game, I suggest the 1 hr trial first.
