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.

"everything I wanted + a few nifty unexpected features"

July 01, 2010  |  By davinB

 |  Version: BrainsBreaker 4.10.105

Pros

Very intuitive user interface, nice selection of puzzles you can download and -- most importantly -- an easy interface to add, and organize, new puzzles based on anything you can "capture" using a graphics program. All this for a reasonable price.

Cons

A handy list of "cheats" would be cool.

Summary

If you like jig saw puzzles that you can save -- part way through assembling them -- without having to pick up all the pieces -- this is a great program. Variable difficulty levels is also a nice feature. I admit, this is the first jig saw application I have bought but, after using it fort about a month, I'm very satisfied.Three thumbs up!

"Love This!!"

June 25, 2010  |  By ljyoung115

 |  Version: BrainsBreaker 4.10.001

Pros

I love the way the pieces snap together when correct and the sound of the peices turning. Plus when you buy it you can take any picture you have, make a puzzle out of it, and e-mail it to whoever you want. Very addicting!

Cons

None. I bought BrainsBreaker years ago, but that was 4 or 5 computers ago. I loved it then and love it now.

Summary

This is especially great for kids with autism because most of them love puzzles, and with this game you don't end up with puzzle pieces all over the house. The kids can't loose them.
