After a long day's work, there are times where you just need to sit back, relax, and play a game to take your mind off things. Jigsaw Plus by Spice is one of those games. Based upon the classic puzzle-piece brain teaser, Jigsaw makes my long and unbearable train ride fly right by.
Jigsaw Plus is a jigsaw puzzle game where you choose the difficulty level and select your puzzle from a collection of 30 random images. There is even a new puzzle to try every day. The only thing missing is the ability to upload your own photos and turn them into puzzles. Maybe in the next update they'll be able to move beyond the stock images and add this feature.
Levels are broken down by the number of pieces also known as cuts. They range from the simple 9 piece cut to the extremely intricate 100 piece cut. Mind you these pieces are perfectly square and not the odd shaped locking pieces we're all familiar with. If you think this is easy, you're wrong. I dare you to attempt to solve the 100 piece cut without losing your mind (like I did). Until then, I'll stick to the kid levels and slowly work my way up. Plus, they've even included a counter that tracks your solve times and how many moves it takes.
I must say the graphics are stunning on the Torch. The images are vivid and bright, each one seems to pop right out. They certainly know which ones to pick for their gallery. I also didn't experience a delay when using the trackpad or touchscreen to play. What can I say? I'm a kid at heart and always enjoyed putting together jigsaw puzzles. Why not see for yourself and check out the links below.
Jigsaw Plus is available in BlackBerry App World in a free ad-supported version (limited number of images) and a paid version for $1.99. It is compatible with most devices running OS 4.2 and higher, including the Torch 9800, Bold 9780, and Curve 9300. So far there's no support for the BlackBerry Style. I think that device deserves a little more love don't you?
