World Mosaics 5
A refreshing change from my usual dark & eerie favorites.
I own the first four World Mosaics, and will probably purchase this one as well. It's a very simple concept, but as you move through it can get very challenging. I enjoy these games mostly because they contain some actual "fun facts" woven into a fictitious story line, so I get to glean a little knowledge while I fritter away my valuable down time. Word of warning: As introduced in WM IV, the squares provide a count for you. I remember some fans being very upset with that feature, but I find it speeds things up a little, so I don't mind. My own tip: As one who can't stand a red X on my board, I prefer to make my mistakes on graph paper for the really hard ones.

Very similar to the PICCross games from Ninendo DS. If you enjoy those, you will love this. Great puzzle game with just the right amount of challenge.

I love these games!
I am a big fan of the World Mosaics series, I own all of them so far. They are a nice brain exercise that I find relaxing and challenging. I suggest giving this a try even if it isn't your typical game, it might surprise you.
Two complaints. #1. The color scheme. With many of the mosaics being a similar color it's often hard to see which squares are still blank which leads to stupid errors. And #2. I miss, as in past W.M. games, a line's numbers fading out once the line is fully filled. If these 2 things could be fixed gameplay would be smooth and most stupid mistakes could be avoided.
Despite my complaints I still love the game and am already on my 2nd pass through.

I have all 5 of these games and love every one of them. I can't find any other games like this but would love to.

Not as good as #4. To many 10 spot games, and only goes as high as 20, even in Bonus. It also has NO score board to keep track of times. It's fun, but not long enought

I've just spent one hour with this game and so far it's been pretty simple but the visual quality is good and it's added a feature that some of this type game doesn't have -- it counts the boxes as you run your cursor over them. Helps in not running over and having extra errors. If I could afford it -- I would definitely buy it.

This game is deceptively challenging, especially at the higher levels.....but it won't drive you crazy. If you're just looking for something fun to play without tearing your hair out, give it a try. Nice graphics and tools, with a fair number of hints if you need them. Even at the lower levels, it's addicting!!! Highly recommended.

Fun and worth a try
I recommend that for those that have not played this type of game to give it a try. This is the first one I had bought and I enjoyed it enough to buy the other versions. It's fun but challenging and definitely one that keeps at the mac a bit longer than what I usually do.

Interesting Puzzle Game
I decided to try something a bit different and I found I liked this game. Could be a little more challenging, but a nice, relaxing game.
