Jigsaws Galore (32-bit) v3.4 Description:
is a powerful and full-featured jigsaw puzzle game. It comes complete with 10 different jigsaw puzzles to solve, or you can create you own puzzles from your favorite images. Puzzles can have from 4 to 4,000 pieces.
Several combinations of sorting and arranging pieces are available. Pieces can be arranged in a grid pattern, or around the edge of the board leaving a work area. In addition, pieces can be unsorted, sorted by shape, sorted by color, or sorted by both shape and color.
You can use the left mouse button to move pieces around the screen. Or you can pick up a group of pieces by dragging a rubber band box around them first.
You can create and use "trays" to park unwanted pieces, and to work on a particular chunk of a large jigsaw.
The size of the puzzle pieces can be adjusted at any time between 10% and 300% or its original size.
For an added challenge, you can set a time limit for solving a jigsaw puzzle, and enable the "rotating pieces" option.
And if you get stuck, you can always resort to cheating. There are a variety of cheats to help you, including show neighbor, fetch neighbor, right way up, hint, and auto-solve.
It includes a full-featured background music player with a programmable tune list and shuffle button. Several tunes are provided, and you can replace these or add your own MIDI tune files to the list. Sound effects are also programmable, and you can replace the supplied sounds with your own WAV files.
Jigsaws Galore also lets you give a jigsaw puzzle to a friend. If they don't have Jigsaws Galore installed on their computer, you can send a jigsaw puzzle as a "gift" jigsaw instead. This is a small self-contained jigsaw file which only plays the chosen jigsaw and can optionally include a message from you along with your choice of background music.
You can save and print your puzzles.
