World Mosaics 6
Not as fun as the other Mosaics
I was excited about the new World Mosaics game but disappointed when I played the demo. The other versions (1-5) were much better, more fun and more interesting. A good demo but wouldn't buy.

Good mental workout
PROS: I love these types of games and found this one to be a good challenge. Unlike a couple of reviewers, I was able to work out every puzzle without guessing, though it did take some concentration (and once in a while walking away from a puzzle in progress). The 25x25 grids were especially fun. The star system made me want to go back and beat my scores. CONS: Board contrast sometimes made it hard to discern blank from X'd squares. Music still cheesy.

Love all Mosaics!
Great fun, I play these over an over. This last one was quite a bit more challenging, and I am repeating (and repeating and repeating) to get all stars. If they keep releasing these for eternity, I'll be a happy camper!!

Older Games Were Better
I absolutely LOVE picross/nonograms, ..whatever you want to call them... They are fun in general. Was excited to see this come out....then a little disappointed with the graphics. Puzzles were hard to see, The difficulty was about average, one good point here, not a ton of useless 5 x 5 puzzles. If you like these types of puzzles definately worth getting, but if you are new to them, try an older version of this game. I would recommend any other before this one.

this is a great game...
bought this one a while back and have played it many many times..and will play it many more....it was my first one of the series. It is not the most difficult of the series - actually the 1st and 2nd are more difficult...but this one has the most relaxing and enjoyable background music. The others not so much....If you own this one and like the game, you should consider buying the first ones for more of a challenge.

Another Great World Mosaic Game!
Thoroughly enjoyable, as are all WM games! I enjoyed the bounty of bonus games too. I could care less about a story line. I'm here for the puzzles! The image underneath the grid did trip me up a few times, as did the right/left clicking.
Bring on World Mosaics 7!

I loved it
I love these mosaic games and wish there were more of them. The story line in this one is particularly amusing and I laughed a lot. Some of the jokes are rather subtle. The challenge on this one isn't as much as the last one, I don't think. I had to map out and start over on just three or four. But the story is what makes this one so much fun.

Welcome Back World Mosaic
I have been looking forward to the release of WM 6 and it does not disappoint. There are fewer super easy puzzles and more challenging ones. The puzzle graphics are very good. I like the World Mosaic games because I can play through them once, let them sit, then play them again, and again.
My only negative comment is that the text is rather poorly edited. I suggest using a spell checker and then checking behind that. If the correctly spelled word is used wrongly spell checker can't help.

Challenging but visuals frustrating
I've done all the Mosaic games now and have found them enjoyable and challenging. One of the things that frustrated me about World Mosaics 6 was that the clues (i.e. the number of characters per line or column) were difficult to read against the background. Perhaps reviewing the colour of the font would be helpful - it might need to be a different colour depending on the background.

As good as ever
An excellent game requiring a good deal of reasoning and elimination skills to complete.
I read one review which said that this version was a complete guessing game, this is false, as an experienced player who has played this game to conclusion I can assure gamers that all of these puzzles can be solved without resorting to any guess work.
