World Mosaics 5
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.

Why do designers have to take a perfectly great game series and revise it so it stinks? The earlier versions were easy to switch back and forth, the pins are stupid, etc...hated it.

Nice Time Killer - A Guy's Review
This is an elimination puzzle that can easily eat up quite a bit of free time. It is sort of a Sudoku meets Minesweeper where you have to mark out squares in a grid according to the given numbers provided for the rows and columns. They are all solvable in a logic fashion, there is no need for chance play. Another hint to help you along is that the title of the "picture/image" tells you what it should be. You have a limited amount of errors you are allowed to do and for correct choices you build up "hints" that help you on your way by revealing part of the solution. It has a clock but it is not time limited. It basically just shows you your record time if you want to go at it again.
I found it quite relaxing to sit and solve these puzzles and it surely put the braincells to work. In the beginning it is rather easy, but it gets quite challenging and time consuming in later stages. It is not a game I would sit down and play because of the attraction of the game itself, but rather something that functions well as a time killer or an inbetween thing.
The graphics are plain and simple and doesn't offer much esthetics for the eyes. Not that I would expect a game like this to be that either. It functions well with its simplicity. The music however gets annoying really fast. It is horribly repetitive. My tip is to turn that off as soon as possible.
It is a game that takes quite a while to play through, so in that manner you get your money's worth. I don't see myself playing it hours on end, but rather something I'd pick up now and again through a longer time period. Nice thing to have in ones catalog, but nothing you can't live without. It is a steal at a DD price and a good thing to spend a credit on. Well worth trying.

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.

I love these kinds of puzzles. If you want a challenge for your mind that uses numbers, then this is the game for you. I have World Mosaic #1 to #5. I wish they would make more of these puzzles!

Keep them coming!
Great game! Makes you think-then think again. 10x10 can be easy but not always and then it really get fun. These games make you think. The five different ones are alike but not the same-each one is different enough to keep.

BETTER MUSIC PLEASE
I REALLY did enjoy playing this game but have to admit that I was sorely put out by the music as the variety (what little there was) had NOTHING to do with ANY of the themes that a gamer was playing.
There were different themes (famous people, holidays, festivals) and I think that this game would have been REALLY GREAT had there been music associated with the different topics -- Christmas music, Roman music, Oktoberfest, etc.
I found the history provided for each completed puzzle VERY INTERESTING and learned quite a few little tidbits.

World Mosaics Never Disappoints
As long as World Mosaic games are being released, I will gladly buy.
I love how unique the game is. But also how every game has new puzzles and even extra puzzles to be earned for once you finish the story.
You will definitely get your money's worth.
