Mr. Penguin Is Gonna Be Upset Today! Somebody put on their thinking cap and created one of the most unusual griddler games I've ever seen. I love it when devs think outside the box, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, this time it really works! You even get to choose the difficulty of the puzzles with Casual which has no timer, numbers are crossed off one by one and the hint timer recharges quickly. Normal mode has a timer with plenty of time, numbers are still crossed off one by one, and the hint recharges slowly. Expert mode gives you limited time, numbers are crossed off when an entire row is complete and the hint recharges very slowly. Wait! There's a custom mode which allows you to choose a timer, how long the hint takes to recharge from 10-120 seconds, how many mistakes you are allowed from 1-5, whether you want the numbers crossed off one by one or when an entire row is completed, and whether you want a time bonus. Not only do you get to create beautiful and colorful pictures, but you get to create pictures with depth. There are the normal one color grids, and the three color grids where you change the colors by clicking on the color bubble which helps you solve the puzzle when you get stumped. Then the grids get really exciting with the introduction of shapes. This puzzle allows you to not only click three color options, but shapes as well! There's also a swap type grid and a bomb type grid where you figure out where the explosives are hidden and avoid them. The coolest part is that you can choose the order you want to play the grids in a level, if you want to play the last game first, you can! It's a good thing Mrs. Penguin is busy redecorating her house for Uncle Aaron, because I feel a little guilty enjoying this unique griddler game. This game is very challenging, some of the grids seemed impossible to complete without using a hint or two, but perhaps I just need to put on my thinking cap as well, enjoy! March 16, 2016
At last..a rival to Fantasy Mosaics !! World's Greatest Places Mosaics is a breath of fresh air in the realm of grid puzzle games. It is unique in that each 5 grid segment contains 5 different kinds of puzzles. The first is a 3 color grid ala Fantasy Mosaic. The second is a simple one color grid. Then the fun and the difficulty starts. The third segment involves correctly placing shapes. These include squares, hexagons and circles. We are told how many of each shape is needed on both vertical and horizontal lines, the hard part, and I do mean hard, is where do the shapes go. Fortunately there is a hint available and the hint recharges very quickly. The fourth segment requires swapping squares in a tri-color grid. This is probably the most confusing of the 5. If a square can be relocated it is highlighted and the player then can move it to a spot consistent with the vertical or horizontal numbers located outside the grid. The one flaw in segment 4 is that 2 slightly different shades of dark blue are used, at least in the second group of five. The last part of a section uses bombs. It is just like the old game Minesweeper. Hit a bomb and the level fails. The game as a whole has a tutorial which is a bit confusing. This tutorial is absolutely necessary. When I play Fantasy Mosaics and I have most of the 13 issued to date, I rarely rely on hints. With this new game, hints will be a much needed ally. If there is a downside to this clever game it is that the game title doesn't live up to itself. When a grid is finished there is no indication of any place at all. Nevertheless this griddler is so novel and so challenging that it is a must have for those of us who enjoy mosaic style games. Give it a shot but be warned: this is a hair puller for sure.

Challenging! First there were games with one color; then three colors. Now, add shapes! Up to three colors and three shapes creates a complexity that is, simply, hard! I've only played for 19 minutes, and I bought the game. It's hard and it's really fun! March 16, 2016
This will appeal to a player seasoned in the color grid games. I adore Nonongrams to begin with-- especially the colored type. They have added some twists to this game and I liked them all but one.... THE SWAPPING grid. NOT a hit with me. I am really seasoned playing this type of game but I really couldn't understand what to do when it came to the swapping grid. Thankfully, this Dev. gave us unlimited hints -a huge hit with me- and secondly, I didn't need to play the swap to progress --at least in the demo. So I went and played a different grid. I also LOVED the custom setting. BRAVO! This Developer is seriously catering to all of us and giving us something new to challenge our brains. Yikes, with the "shapes" I kept hitting the wrong ones, until I finally got the hang of it. I am not so sure this particular game will be a hit with someone new to this genre. If you are new to this type of game I would suggest playing the 1 color grids first, then move to a 3 color grid selection and save shapes and swapping for last. These are TRICKY! I know when I'm really digging a game when the demo shuts it off and I say, "BUMMER!". So I had to buy this game to play some more. I would highly suggest this, but again, I really can't stand the swapping grids. If I HAVE to play them to progress I guess I'll have to learn via the forums or other reviews what the trick is. In case anyone cares, I learned a trick with these type of games....--especially if you don't have unlimited hints and you are at the puzzles toward the end of the game which are harder generally...-- which is, I keep my cell phone on the camera setting and snap a picture of each color if I am nearly at the end of my X's which will end the session for restart. Upon reboot of that session again, fill in the spots you previously played using your camera phone as reference to the squares you completed before you were X'd out. March 16, 2016
WOW - You have to have your thinking cap on! But it's sooo worth it! March 16, 2016
Want more like this At first I did not like this game. The shape factor threw me for a little while. But, after I got used to it, I loved this game. I hop there are more coming like this. August 27, 2016
Fun new mosaics Loved the color and the innovation of using shapes. Made it just challenging enough to keep my interest. You don't have t do the puzzles in order, which is great. Sometimes I get stuck and want to move on for a bit. Also, you don't have to have a certain number of points to move to the next level. Music is soothing and graphics are good. My only complaint is that it is short; not enough levels of any kind. I hope they remedy this in a revisit. I'd buy in a minute! April 24, 2016
A Challenging Brain Teaser - Not Perfect Though! World's Greatest Places Mosaics is NOT the typical type of Mosaic game usually found on Big Fish; yes it has one and Tri-colour grids but it also offers three other variations for those wanting, seeking, or after new challenges and experiences: shapes, swap, and bombs grids. NOTE: this is a game dissimilar to Fantasy Mosaic where speeding-through each level is NOT possible - on all levels this game IS challenging! As mentioned, there are several different types of Mosaics to play, each comprising of a variety of levels to amuse, frustrate, irritate, cause a few choice words to be uttered, and yes....with each difficult completed mosaic, there is a sense of achievement to revel in too. Perseverance, an open mind, logical thinking, and a lot of patience at times, are some of the attributes that's required to complete some of the more challenging grids....but then this is a Brain Teaser.....and it does 'tease'. A variant on the traditional one-colour grid is the tri-colour grid, and those who have played any of the Fantasy Mosaic games or the really lovely Rainbow Mosaics_ Christmas Lights game, will need no explanation n how to play them. Shapes is the next option and although it can 'appear' daunting at first, it really is as simple and logical as the previous one and tri colour mentioned. With still three colours to choose from, shapes will have numbers showing....for example, the number 5 may be in a circle/square, etc shape placed against a line of the grid - let's say a 10x10 size...obviously that line will requires 5 circles in the same colour as depicted by the grid to be placed correctly. The same line may have as many as 3 different shapes and colours to place correctly, which is one great brain teaser to get your head around. This option will require a bit more focus and concentration at times, it isn't impossible though and that is something that will help when attempting to solve them. The other I've tried (4 of the 5 options in all - I've not tested 'bombs' yet) is that of Swap: its a smashing little idea taken a little from the idea of mosaics n mixed with those puzzles and teasers where two tiles are selected and swapped over to complete a picture - same here except the grid says the number of tiles per line and it is for YOU to work out which colour etc that number refers to....there is much trial and error yet there is also as much joy and cheshire-cat grinning when you've beaten 'it', lol BUT....this game is NOT perfect. There I've said it ! Another reviewer or two has mentioned how even when a non-timed option is chosen, after several squares are filled in and completed with one swift action, an annoying circular display up in the top left of the screen appears; why this 'clock' appears in un-timed mode isn't clear....yet. Is there any guessing? There is BUT I have seen nowhere near the amount that some reviewers have seen; but the bottom line is that 'guess-the-square' - ANY square - should NOT occur.... it means the developers/creators have failed in offering up a properly completed game....these type of games ARE logic-solving ones, not guessing games!!! Another gripe I have with quite a few of these games including the Fantasy series, is the finished picture quality a completed grid shows; why oh why are the images of such a low poor standard? Perhaps the developers or creators can address this issue and provide a first for us 'gamers' ? That of a pc mosaic game with NO guessing - just logic logic logic - and decent completed-grid images.......Now THAT I would like to see! So given its failings on graphic quality and the odd 'guess' a square, it fails to achieve the perfect score....but for whiling away some time and exercising the brain cells, its a 4/5 score.

WONDERS NEVER BEFORE SEEN! This game has a mosaic grid that requires you to swap tiles in order to fill the grid in correctly. I have never seen this type of mosaic before and it presented a unique challenge to me. I really liked the diversity of play in the game. I played the one hour demo and hesitate to express my opinion after seeing so little of what seems like a complex game. My hesitation is based on a couple of things that I don't understand about the game and that I didn't find discussed anywhere in the help section. First, since I played the untimed mode, what are the other parameters that are rated for the possible 3 star ratings given to my play? I was able to get 3 stars on some grids, but others only two. I would think number of mistakes made might be one of the criteria, but am at a loss for the other two since time should not be a factor. Therefore I had no idea what to concentrate on in replaying the grids to increase my chance of getting 3 gold stars. Secondly, at various times during play, a circle would appear in the upper left of the grid with a number in the middle and pieces of the circle "counting down". The pieces of the inside rim of the circle would disappear in clockwise order until the number inside counted down to zero, at which time the circle would disappear. I could never figure out what I did during play that would cause the circle to pop up, nor what I needed to do while the circle "counted down", particularly when I was playing the untimed mode. I did like having the ability of switching to playing all grids as traditional mosaics only instead of adding the 3 (?) other types of play. This is a unique game and stands out from the crowd.

Excellent New Mosaic Game, but Requires Brain Power! A welcome addition to the griddler-type game genre, with innovative game play, as others have described. I will just add that this will really test your grey matter, as you have to think outside the square with some of the new types of puzzle presented here. Some aspects of this game are just plain difficult. In the 'shapes' game, which is as far as I got to in the demo, I became fairly certain that it could not be completed successfully with 'logic', which is why you seem to have to resort to hints. If this is indeed is the case, then that is a downside for me, as I don't like griddlers where you can't rely on logic. That is the only reason for the 4 stars. Other than the logic factor, everything else in the game is 5 stars for sure, and I will recommend it pending 'surety' of the logic aspect. March 17, 2016
