More Jigsaw Than Mosaics
BASED ON DEMO
If you are a fan of the World Mosaics series, you will be disappointed to hear that this is NOT a pictograph game. It is a JIGSAW style game, like Patchworkz. On the other hand, of course, if you are a fan of Patchworkz (as I am), you’ll be pleased to hear this game is as charming and delightful as that one.
For those who have not played either, this is a game of “competitive” jigsaw. Like most casual games, you must succeed at one level to unlock further gameplay. You have a jigsaw to put together – deceptively easy to begin with – and a certain time in which to do it. You are awarded points, coins, keys based on completion of the puzzle, accuracy and speed.
You need 40 out of a possible 60 keys to move up to the next world, or you can buy your way in with gold coins (sounds like real life!). Using the hint button costs you are certain number of coins.
There are 6 ‘worlds’ each with 20 levels (i.e. puzzles) to complete. Each world uses a different medium for its tiles. The first world (Fairy Forest) uses wooden tiles. The next world (Golden Sands) uses fabric patches. The images are very pretty and enjoyable to piece together.. The music is particularly soothing, and there are also sound effects, like a bell tolling when you are in trouble timewise.
The only way you’d know there is supposed to be a story is if you’ve read the blurb on this page. In the game itself, you get an opening comic book page, which sorta shows you the story (no verbals), if you know what to expect, and that is it.
There are a lot of animals in the puzzles, but there are other subjects too. If we are going to find our pets, it must be further than I got in an hour, which was into the second world.
The puzzles are quite easy, if you didn’t have to worry about time and accuracy, and you can play the game that way if you want. You just have to replay puzzles you can do until you get enough coins. If you do decide to ‘compete’, there are trophies for each world you finish, for collecting coins, no hints, etc. And a record of your highest scores.
I like this game. It will make a nice change from Patchworkz, which is the only game like this I have seen before. And an interesting twist for jigsaw lovers.I Recommend This Game!
