Totally, totally addictive!!
Wow, what's not to like about this game? It's better than Jigsaw World, which I thought I wouldn't say about any jigsaw game. You can set the # of pieces, the shape of the pieces, add in fun objects. You can make your own puzzles - easily. I can't put this game away...I try to set time limits and then I break them, wanting to do a little more puzzlework. I'm addicted to the square 220+ puzzles but you can redo any puzzles any number of times with different puzzles shapes and numbers. Absolutely love this game.

I am now hooked on jigsaws.!!!!
I never knew one could have so much fun and get so much satisfaction from playing jigsaws!!
This is a terrific game and great for the memory too..lol
This is my first jigsaw download so I am glad I chose Jigsaws Galore to peak my interest.
The images, colour but mostly the selection is exceptional.
I am unable to comment on the music as I always have the sound turned down on all the games not just this one as the constant trumming (or whatever) is simply not my taste and drives me to turn the sound off.
The level of challenge depends on how much you want to be challenged making a picture out of a picture. It is so much fun you don't notice the challenge until it is finished and they give you the amount of time it took..lol
I highly recommend this game!
Have fun everyone.

Great Game - Really Fun!
I have purchased many jigsaw games, and bar none this is the BEST! You can also go to the jigsaws galore website if you already purchased the game and download more puzzles, search "jigsaws galore", or make your own!

It's Puzzle Master!!!!!
I've spent the last year searching for something to replace the Puzzle Master series by eGames, which I played for over 10 years. Tonight, after downloading three other jigsaw games that came close but didn't quite live up to my expectations, I tried this one, not expecting much. I was shocked when I saw that it is basically a replica of Puzzle Master! Here's why, for serious puzzlers, this game is better than any of the two dozen others I've tried:
1: There's NO MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PIECES! Or if there is, it's ridiculously high. I tested this by making a 20,000-piece puzzle, and it let me.
2: You can customize the size of both the picture and the puzzle pieces. Other programs only let me use a medium-sized picture, which made the pieces tiny if I wanted to have more than 100 or so.
3: You can use your own pictures. I have folders full of desktop wallpapers I've downloaded from around the Internet, which are fantastic for creating puzzles with large numbers of pieces.
4: You can customize the shapes of the pieces. I prefer the classic jigsaw shape, but there are man other options. You can even create your own custom shapes by hand if you're so inclined.
5: You can save puzzles in-progress, and there's even a setting that will auto-save at intervals. I like this because I enjoy doing very large puzzles that can take several hours.
6: As an added bonus, I think this game has the best stock photos included of any I've tried. I don't usually care much about that, since I generally prefer to use pictures I've downloaded, but it's a nice touch. I like puzzles with very bright colors, rather than more subtle colors found in nature, as I find these make more interesting puzzle pieces.
The interface isn't fancy; in fact, it's rather plain. I like this; I want to concentrate on the puzzle, not a bazillion toolbars.
I can't tell you how excited I am! The Puzzle Master series no longer works on 64-bit systems, and I was crushed to have lost something I'd loved for so long. I'm going to be up for hours tonight playing this!

The Jig is up.
I am a huge jigsaw puzzle fan - though I admit I'm not much for video game versions of it. However, this game is an exception. The ability to make your own puzzles appealed to me. But it doesn't stop there. You can choose the number of pieces, size, shape and so on. It's incredible how much of the game is customizable. The option of having 'trays' to hold and organize different sorts of pieces is very handy. You can also create your own folders to organize your custom puzzles or even the ones included with the game.
If you love jigsaw puzzles, you'll love this game. Period.

Excellent Puzzle Game
I've tried them all and have found this one to be the most fun, as well as the most configurable. I especially like being able to use my own graphics, and adjust the size of the pieces while working the puzzle. A really good game and worth (more than) every penny it costs.
