Holiday Jigsaw: Halloween
What a relief after a hard day's work!
The pictures were absolutely wonderful, colorful, and relaxing. After driving down a two-lane terribly congested country road the last thing I want is another difficult challenge.
When I work these puzzles, I feel my blood pressure going down! The puzzles fit the fall season to a "T".

More Of A Fall Themed Jigsaw
True there are Halloween pictures in this box but most of the puzzles are just nice fall scenes. There is a good variety of puzzles with a good variety of sizes too. You can choose options such as showing the border only, sorting the pieces, showing the picture or changing the color of the background. There is a timer and you can earn trophies as well. There are 4 boxes each filled with several scenes to choose from so enjoy!

Happy Holiday Fever!
BASED ON ONE HOUR DEMO
Australians never celebrated Halloween, but the more American TV shows we watch, the more kids are demanding costumes and sweets. So I thought I?d get into the spirit of the whole, even though I?ve got no candy for the neighbour?s kids.
This jigsaw game seems a good game. There are 4 boxes with 25 photos each. There?s all sorts of stuff in them and no individual theme to the boxes that I could see. The photos are well chosen for the theme, and professionally taken, but nothing overly exciting.
Standard for these kinds of games, you can edit the puzzles by number of pieces (from about 12 up to about 300) or degree of irregularity of the cuts. Some of the games have pieces that must be rotated, others not.
You can choose to have the image pinned to one corner, or to have a ?ghost? (groan ? pardon the pun). You can also have them sorted or the edges separated. There is also a box for putting away some pieces manually, and you can have the pieces stick to the desktop.
The interface is non intrusive. The music is lovely. So relaxing and pleasant.
You can get scores based on speed and you can also get trophies for the usual achievements, numbers of pieces placed, times etc.
If you?re a big player of jigsaws, I can see an appeal in this game, because it has all the good features as well as a large number of photos, and a ?theme?.

I did not play the game very long. The puzzles as presented were too simple. I tried varying the number of pieces and discovered that the shadow eliminated the detail on the edges of the pieces, so putting them together became a process of trial and error and trying to match colors. If I could remove the shadow, I would have been a lot happier.

OK, count me the fool, I didn't do a Try before buy.
But I have Puzzles Galore, so I figured if I didn't like the way it played, I would just import the pics into that and play it there. WRONG. I can't find the pics anywhere, and the game, although the music is nice, the visuals, well, just try changing the piece counts to 200-300 and they are ridiculous big blocks with tiny little bumps on them. I am heartbroken, because the pictures are wondertul!!! and I would have been completely satisfied with the purchase as long as I could have had access to the pictures.
