    My Jigsaw Adventures: Roads of Life

    A story-driven series of 18 puzzles with highly-customizable difficulty to keep things fresh.

    The main menu options are simply separate sliders for Music and SFX, and Full-screen or Windowed.  Once you start the game, however, the options multiply.  These choices include:

    • Normal or Challenge Mode
    • Puzzle shape (Traditional jigsaw, Mosaic or Arrow)
    • 5 Puzzle sizes (from 28 pieces up to 220 pieces)
    • Additional Options (Grid on/off, Picture in background slider, Center selected piece on cursor)

    Whew!  As you can see, plenty of ways to keep things interesting and increase replayability.  But wait, there's more!  On the actual puzzle there are buttons at the top right to change things up even more.  From left to right: Change image zoom on the background, shuffle puzzle pieces, sound, restart level and exit.  There are a few other changes you can make, but I'll let you discover those on your own.

    Puzzle pieces will snap into place when you drop them in the right place, and you can zoom in/out using the scroll wheel on your mouse.

    Story:

    After the protagonist's wife dies, he travels the land, desperately seeking a way to bring her back to life.  I have to say that I really loved having a story to tie all of the puzzles together.  Story segments are presented between levels, and can be just a line or two, or several paragraphs! The tale itself was both fascinating and a little macabre, and I'd love to see it fleshed out more.  It would make a great full-length novel or even VN.

    Sights & Sounds:

    The assorted music tracks felt very natural and were lovely to listen to.   I really enjoyed the artwork for the game.  It's dark but beautiful and eerie but hopeful all at the same time.  Completed puzzles will be added to your Gallery, and can be set as wallpapers.

    Verdict:

    If you play every level with 28-pieces and ignore the story, you can probably finish the game in about an hour... But what fun would that be?  There are 31 Steam Achievements.  and I happily completed them all.

    This was a really enjoyable experience, and I definitely suggest checking it out... Providing that you like good art, an interesting story and jigsaw puzzles!
