Editors' Review

+
Play the included jigsaws or design your own--with this capable game package, you can do both. We found Jigsaws Galore's 10 sample images merely adequate, but making your own puzzle is as easy as browsing to your favorite snapshot. Whichever image you choose, you can specify the number and style of the pieces, change their edge style, and customize the appearance of the background.

While playing, you can zoom in on pieces, use trays for sorting, and enable or disable a "ghost" background image of the finished puzzle. For a bigger challenge, set up the timer or try solving a puzzle in Mystery mode, without referring to the finished image. We weren't big fans of Jigsaws Galore's MIDI background music, and its memory use (25MB) seemed excessive. On the other hand, we like the thoughtful Gift feature, which bundles puzzles into executable files you can send your friends.

Bottom line, anyone looking for a simple, quick way to create custom jigsaw puzzles should consider this application a contender.

"Includes malware"

February 02, 2014  |  By BohemianGal

 |  Version: Jigsaws Galore 6.13

Pros

Easy to use, makes nice little puzzles that you can save as "gifts" on your computer or pass along to friends.

Cons

I used to have this program on another machine and it was great. When I downloaded it this time, it came with SEVERAL unwanted programs, even though I carefully unchecked those options at installation. One program simply wouldn't uninstall, no matter how many times I tried -- I had to manually search to find and delete the program files. I *think* it's gone now, but I'm not absolutely sure.

Summary

Unfortunately, it's not worth the aggravation.

"Comes with malware"

July 28, 2013  |  By chatles

 |  Version: Jigsaws Galore 6.13

Pros

Don't know. Deleted after removing malware that came with it.

Cons

It installed conduit, hijacked my search engine, installed anIE toolbar, and added a couple other programs to my computer despite having checked off that I did not want anything extra installed. Spent an entire day trying to clean the mess and still not sure if I succeeded.

Summary

Don't think I'll trust Cnet's installer again.
