Editors' review

This game lets you create challenging, personalized jigsaw puzzles from your own photo collection. The straightforward interface and step-by-step wizards make constructing a jigsaw puzzle a quick and pain-free process. On the other hand, solving a puzzle can be as difficult as you'd like, as you can set the number and size of pieces, as well as choose from angular, jagged, wavy, or traditional piece styles. However, since the trial version won't let you save your progress, many users may elect simplicity. The included MIDI music is probably intended as a plus, but we found it unenjoyable and distracting and were glad we had the option to disable it. If you don't feel like creating your own puzzle, you can elect to assemble one of the few predesigned templates. Fans of traditional jigsaw puzzles will likely find this game entertaining.

    "I wasn't allowed to try the game for 120 minutes."

    Version: Jigsaw Mania 2.13

    Pros

    I cant say much for or against the produce. I seemed to be fine for the one or two puzzles it allowed me to try.

    Cons

    Not particular negatives the I notices. Didn't really have the opportunity to evaluate adequately.

    "5 minute trial not long enough"

    June 16, 2009   |   By treazured

    Version: Jigsaw Mania 2.13

    Pros

    It was free.

    Cons

    My trial period was 5 minutes after I finished downloading the puzzles. I had to scroll down the screen to see more puzzle pieces even on the smallest piece setting.

    Summary

    Not worth the time to download from what I could tell, but with a 5 minute trial, how could I know whether or not I could fiddle with it to make it like I want it? Others probably loved the wierdly shaped pieces, I didn't, but then I didn't have TIME to get used to them. I also had to scroll down the screen just to see the rest of the puzzle pieces, even when I set the pieces to as small as they'd go. Disappointing. Hopefully the download gave some others more than 5 minutes to play so they could say what it was like. For me, it was a very irritating 5 minutes so I suppose the 5 minute trial really was long enough to discover it wasn't worth the space on my hard drive.

    "To be able to make your own is fantastic!"

    November 14, 2008   |   By lorch-kendrick

    Version: Jigsaw Mania 2.13

    Pros

    The jigsaws are good but to be able to turn photos of your pictures into jigsaws is amazing!!!!

    Cons

    There is not a vast amount of pictures and some are not very challeging.

    Summary

    I have been using this game on and off for over 4 years now, although I feel that the pictures could be of a better variety and not just american style photos, I like the fact that my children can play on this game without the hastle of getting a jigsaw out that they cannot finnish, hence there is no mess!

    "Great software, high price, stupid trial period-120 minutes!"

    January 14, 2008   |   By joshuasdee

    Version: Jigsaw Mania 2.12

    Pros

    I like the software and Inertia helped me figure out how to use my own pictures as Easter Egg Hunt puzzles without the previews so the kids couldn't cheat! The price is unfortunate considering that I have 6 kids and need to have the puzzles on 6 computers! Price aside it is a great program and I haven't had any problems using it on any of the computers running 98 or XP. The 120 trial period is ridiculous.

    Cons

    Price and Trial period.

    "great fun except for one flaw"

    March 28, 2005   |   By beemy

    Version: Jigsaw Mania 2.0

    Pros

    Being a big fan of jigsaws I decided to purchase it and am not sorry I did. It can be as easy or as challenging as I choose it to be. Big plus is being able to create my own jigsaw puzzles from my personal picture files.

    Cons

    The one flaw is the fact that the program won't allow me to save the puzzles when I set the puzzle pieces to medium or small. These are the most challenging settings and the ones I like the best, so not being able to save my work is a big disappointment.

    "Best Jigsaw game?"

    December 24, 2003   |   By nakedostrich

    Version: Jigsaw Mania 2.0

    Summary

    From what I can see, this program has the same features as most other Jigsaw programs put together, plus some more. And it's cheaper than most of the other Jigsaw programs, at $17.95.

    And don't overlook the fact that this comes with over 250, really good Jigsaw puzzles for free. That's good value, you get what is, in my opinion the best Jigsaw game available, plus 250 Jigsaws, and all for 18 dollars.
