BigFish has done it again!
This is an excellent jigsaw puzzle game. The graphics are beautiful, and sometimes 3D. When moving a piece across the board, you can actually see its shadow wax and wane with the move. That's very cool. When the pieces are large, it's a snap to put them together. As they get smaller, you have to be careful not to lose them. I find it a bit difficult when the pieces are very close to the background color of the holding area (haven't checked whether that can be changed). I play on my Kindle Fire without music or sound. I am left-handed but haven't felt the need to use that mode. However, I do appreciate the thought! This was well worth the $1.99 I paid for it. A large selection of puzzles and more than one mode of play. Thanks for a great game!

Very fun and relaxing!!
I love this game! I knew I would buy it after a few puzzles. I am a Hidden Object game fan, but occasionally like to play another type of game. Patchworkz stimulates my mind with a slower-paced game that involves placing pieces back into a picture. The pictures are colorful, and a variety of designs. Fever Mode is unique, requiring completion of the puzzles in a certain amount of time but you get more time by being correct in placing the puzzle pieces.

Unusual, fun and visually beautiful
I get tired of all the hidden object/horror and the match 3 games, so I was happy to see this jigsaw puzzle-type game with lovely designs and colors. I'm about half way through and will undoubtedly replay it several times. I particularly like that, if you repeat a puzzle for a better score, the missing pieces are varied from one attempt to another, making it harder.

So much fun, great to play with a friend
I wasn't sure how to start the game (trial version), but was playing in short time. My friend joined me, usually he won't play computer games. We had a very nice time and want to play more, I'm going to get it next month with my club credit. Simple fun. I look forward to seeing what the full version offers. Relaxing and enjoyable..

Calling all Crafty* Jigsaw Enthusiasts -
*Knowledge of Stained Glass Window making, Marquetry, Paper Collage and Applique and doing other crafts not actually needed, The fun is placing the pieces provided in the above mediums into the correct slots. Not as easy as you might think. A slightly misplaced piece and you lose your star for accuracy. The best thing to do is to hold your mouse down and move over where you think it goes. Don't release the mouse button until your're absolutely sure. If it doesnt fit there you can always place it back into storage without losing your star.
There are loads of puzzles in each medium, and two locked areas which you can only open if you can beat a frenzy record of ten or twenty puzzles where you try and complete as many puzzles as possible in the time given
The music is pleasant and relaxing. The sound of placing the pieces of jigsaw is different when using the different materials which is something I like, rather than a click or locking sound which you get on normal jigsaws.
The quality of each puzzle is high, and it does look as if you are actually using the real material.
I think you will receive bronze, silver and gold stars in the long run but I have not played this all the way through.
However, It is a definite buy. I shall use one of my free game credits on it.

Jigsaw meets Tangram?
Drag and drop puzzle pieces acurately on to a stained glass puzzle. No rotation of pieces was required during demo. You are "graded" on completion, acuracy (no misplaced pieces) and speed (2 minutes or less). Once one puzzle is complete, you continue onto another.
Graphics are gorgeous, Music is zen-like but became bothersome after a while like it can do at a spa for those of you who are like me : ).
I liked it, but my overall enjoyment was okay. I would have appreciated it much more if I could have played without the acuracy and time elements and had the music been more varied.

Updated version of old favorite
The earlier version of Patchworkz was one of the first free online games that I played when I first came to Big Fish. I can remember re-visiting that game to try to improve my score. This newer version looks like it will have the same appeal and after trying the demo for 30 minutes I knew I had to buy it. The first puzzles seem really easy, but serve as a way of helping you learn how to play the game. There is an opportunity to play a timed part if you want more of a challenge. I consider this a good "coffee break" game: one that you can play for short periods of time and not have to worry about keeping track of a storyline.
I do think that some parts of the game could have been better. For example, it did take me a while to figure out just how to exit the game and how to access the options screen.
It might not be the kind of game everyone would enjoy, but I would suggest that you give it a try. Just don't be fooled by the simplicity of the first levels! I looked at some of the later levels and they look like they could be more challenging.
