World Mosaics 7
Same old same old...disappointed
I might be the only one who seems disappointed with this much awaited WM7. I enjoyed them all but it seems nothing much has changed or was added to give us something new. After the long wait I think my expectation might have been too high.
Nothing wrong with the game - still the same great game you might enjoy if you have not tried this genre. Give it a go and enjoy! I agree with other fishies this game will make your mind work out a bit. No buy for me this time.

A Bit Disappointed
I have all of this series of games and to be honest, I am a little disappointed in this latest one.
I was waiting for the bigger more difficult puzzles to come but was surprised to find I'd finished the game. There were no levels that were more 20 x 20 in size.
The storyline is really not of any interest to me, is the puzzles I want not stories.

Love to play these but at level 7 I would have expected more larger grid puzzles. I love a challenge and was highly expecting larger grids of 25 and maybe some 30's. Way too easy. If I hadn't received it for free; I would not have bought it.

I have most of the other WM games and love them. However, I'm giving this one only 3 stars because of the design of the graphics. The game play is the same as other WM games, and the overall graphics are beautiful. However, I agree with other reviewers.....the playing board and background blend together, and it's easy to misread which squares are open and which are not. Even though I'm experienced with this series of games, the bad graphics caused me to misjudge and make errors several times during the trial when I normally would not do so. It was annoying enough that I will not purchase (or recommend) the game. If this problem is something you can ignore, you might feel differently. I suggest playing the trial and deciding for yourself.

Disappointed in WM7
I have greatly enjoyed the previous WM puzzles and own 4, 5, 6, and now 7. 7 just didn't measure up to the previous games. I didn't like that many of the puzzles had large grids but little actual playing area. I did not care for the shiny tiles.
I think these puzzles were done by a different artist--sorry, but I prefer the original artist. I noticed that the old style came back about half way through the bonus section.
Please bring back the original artist.

Didn't get the gist of this game at all. Sort of a cross between a Sudoku puzzle and just shoot me now. Not entertaining in the least.

#7 isn't much fun
I have looked forward to #7 and have all the others. My main experience with this one is this; There are so many times it was up to a guess and risk a mistake . I like when there is some type of logic and not just a shot in the dark. So many 1's and 2's in a row ,low numbers in a large puzzle that I stopped playing out of frustration. Love the other in the series but this is a BIG miss for me.

Transparent backgrounds blend in with the game area. Very difficult to see.

People Giving This Game 5 Stars for Nostalgic Reasons
This 7th installment of the World Mosaics series should be the last -- unless the developers can come up with something original for a change.
* Game mechanics are the same. Nothing new or original. Still have the same little light bulb icons for hints and the same annoying sound effects.
* The playing grids blend into the background pictures making it difficult to see what you're doing. Too much eye strain.
* There's no description of the item you're trying to decipher which makes it very difficult to even guess where to put your markers.
* There's no final score tally which would be nice if you wanted to replay the game and try to beat previous scores.
I LOVED World Mosaics 1 thru 5, but the developers have gotten really lazy with 6 & 7. In fact, I sent them an email telling them exactly what I stated here.
If you are new to the World Mosaics series, play WM 3, 4 & 5 for some great fun with Fairy Tales and Holidays Around the World. THEN play this one and you'll see what I'm talking about.
