Ravensburger Puzzle Selection
jigsaw puzzle game
the game puzzles were beautiful and easy to do however some of the function help keyes were strange. why would you be able to put the edges in a sorting box but not the other pieces? I found this frustrating and spent too much time trying to get puzzle pieces in order to start.
All in all I would still but the game.

Not Worth My Time
First of all, the game scatters the pieces all over the place and you have to move the game board to find them. Second, you're limited to what you can play in the free play mode until you unlock more puzzles thru campaign mode which is boring. You can't do the puzzles you want or choose how many pieces or line up your pieces. I'll stick the other jigsaw game I purchased and dump this one.

pieces are spread out further than you can see & the puzzle is much smaller than imagined

not on this computer
i have a mac book pro, it loaded fine, music good but it would not allow me to play the game. i could put together pieces if they did not need any kind of rotation.. i don't think the instructions are very good either.

Problematic for Mac users!!!!!!!
This puzzles works well in the easy mode. However, for the challenge mode, it continually nukes out the whole program after the first few challenge puzzles have been played. I cannot get beyond this glitch and am locked out of this play option. Quite disappointing and frustrating. I feel it was a waste of money. This was downloaded to a 2010 tabletop Mac computer system. It should never have been released with this major bug in it's program! Do not waste your money on this game!

Good puzzles, but when I work on jigsaws I don't want to go in search of the pieces. Don't like the whole moving playing board thing. Big thumbs down on that. Too bad, cuz the puzzles are very good.

Great graphics, lacking in everything else
I like the graphics and look of the game over all. And the variety of music. I usually turn off the music on all my games.
The things I didn't like about the game outweighed the likes tremendously.
The board moves, there is no way to lock it while solving the puzzle. The pieces are scattered all over the board, so of course you need the board to move to find the pieces. Unfortunately, several of the pieces are missing. So looking for them is a waste of time.
I would also like an option to rotate or not.
If they could fix these issues and them the same quality of their graphics I would definitely buy this game. Otherwise I will look for something else.

why make it so tedious to find the pieces
only played for 20 minutes. couldn't find the peices for the puzzles as you have to grab the board and shift it all over the place to find them. also didnt realise the puzzles were so tiny in the free mode.
i love ravensburger jigsaws and would rather do a real one than this fiddly thing. shame as the reviews were good and seemed to be promisin.

*This review breaks my oath to never review a game I haven't completed. The review is based on about six minutes of play.*
One big complaint that was a deal breaker: when I open an online jigsaw puzzle, I don't want to have to span the globe to find all my pieces. They were randomly strewn hither and yon for no particular purpose, except that apparently a developer thought it was fun to give you a solid-color background (gray is default), and then waste your time having to drag and drag and drag the screen in all directions to find all of your puzzle pieces so you could bring them back to a space where they can all be seen in one screenshot.
A perfect analogy would be if you wanted to play a game of cards, but at the beginning of every hand you had to deal with a round of 52-card pickup before you could play your game.
Sorry, but this was a really, really dumb game.

Menu items are for what?
Throws puzzle pieces off the screen which you can't always retrieve so puzzle is incomplete. There are some menu items off to the left which might help but they aren't labeled so no idea of what they do. Nothing pops up when you hover the cursor over the menu items either. No help topics to give you a hint of what the menu items might do if you could interpret the symbols.
