Editors' review

If you're a fan of traditional jigsaw puzzles, you'll enjoy this program, which takes that old idea into the 21st century. Living Scenes Jigsaw Puzzles lets you assemble either 3D puzzles of natural images or turn your own photos into custom puzzles. You can make the puzzles as hard or as easy as you want by specifying both the number of pieces and hints. You manipulate the pieces with the mouse, although we found it often took a couple of clicks to select a puzzle piece. On the plus side, the program boasts handsome graphics that make the default puzzles quite attractive. In the waterfall scene we tested, we particularly enjoyed the animated, moving water and the soothing sound effects. Living Scenes includes a lot of options to customize your puzzles, and the fact that you can load in new puzzles makes this a game that puzzle aficionados won't tire of easily.

    "WOW--What a GREAT program!"

    September 02, 2005   |   By brainwoman

    Version: Living Scenes Jigsaw Puzzles 2.2

    Pros

    I've only recently re-discovered the joys of jigsawing, and this program is a stunner. The demo gives you 3 puzzles to start with, which will provide hours of play-time (if you choose a high enough piece-count). Once I was hooked, I promptly went out and bought what I thought would be a similar (and cheaper) puzzle program...well, you know what they say--you get what you pay for, and the program I bought was a great disappointment. The graphics and interface were poor at best when compared to Living Scenes. Living Scenes accepts PAYPAL (bonus!!) and immediately upon purchase via PayPal, I received an email with a download link to the in-between program, which allowed me to make my own puzzles with any JPG file...that gives me plenty of puzzles to play while I wait for the full CD to be mailed to me. I don't write reviews often, but this one warranted a very glowing synopsis...if you like jigsaws, you won't be disappointed...I simply cannot recommend this program enough.

    Cons

    Price is a little steep--$20 seems a bit more reasonable. Nevertheless, it is money well spent!

    "absolutely, completely amazing!"

    Version: Living Scenes Jigsaw Puzzles 2.2

    Pros

    I've done jigsaws for a lot of years, and this is the most amazing advancement on the old jigsaw puzzle I've ever seen. Each piece no matter where it is on the screen carries its own small portion of the moving puzzle. It's the most amazing thing I've ever seen. And the moving pieces shifted around the screen with no hang ups or any other problem. The rest of the program is also everything I've ever wanted in a computer jigsaw program. Extra screens that are easy to switch between to separate out the pieces, a cover picture that can be easily refered to, a small light to let me know when two matching pieces are together, and so much more. You can even use your own pictures to make jigsaws. They don't move, but that's fine with me.

    I totally recommend this program. Even if you're not interested in buying it download the trial version just to see how it works. The trial includes one of the moving jigsaws so you can see how amazing this is.

    The program itself downloaded easily and installed flawlessly. Using the program is pretty much intuitive, but there are tips to help you along if you need them. Try it!
