CNET Editors' review

BrainsBreaker provides a set of digital jigsaw puzzles to challenge puzzle beginners and experts alike. With excellent customization and easy play, this program will create die-hard puzzle nuts.

The program's interface was a pleasure, with big buttons and intuitive flow. Users should not have to consult the Help file to work their way through and to begin solving. First, users select the puzzle they want to solve. A screen showcasing the pictures of each puzzle (ranging from nature landscapes, animals, architecture, and more) allows users to quickly pick. Next, users are given full control of customization, allowing the picture to be broken up into as few as 60 pieces to as many as 620 pieces, varying the level of challenge accordingly. Also, users can select their piece shapes, ranging from classic jigsaw to geometric shapes to mosaic tiles to more. Putting together the puzzle was equally intuitive and fun. Users simply click and drag the various pieces, rotating them with their mouse wheel, until they match the picture. Overall, BrainsBreaker does an impressive job of mimicking the actual experience of puzzle solving. BrainsBreaker is also bursting with excellent features, including virtual pile areas for similar pieces and a button that allows you to see only edge pieces. But the finest feature is the capability to create your own puzzle by downloading a photo.

The program's trial does restrict you from accessing all of the puzzle options. Still, thanks to its simple operation and fun approach, this program is a great alternative for puzzle solvers.
