What better way to end the week than with another title from the premier provider of games on the Windows Store? Yes, we are talking about Microsoft, and its new game, Microsoft Jigsaw.
As the name reveals, this is a puzzle game that offers a variety of different modes for you to play. Three, in fact, including Classic, Jigsaw Jam and Custom Puzzles. Throw in the daily challenges, and Xbox achievements and leaderboards, and you have got a win.
Before we get down to details, here is the official description:
“Introducing the all new Microsoft Jigsaw – the perfect fit for your Windows 8 device! Play hundreds of puzzles in three exciting game modes: Classic Jigsaw, Jigsaw Jam, and Daily Challenges. Intuitive controls make Microsoft Jigsaw great on your mouse & keyboard and excellent on a touchscreen.
With multiple game modes, downloadable puzzle packs, and the ability to create your own custom puzzles, you will never run out of things to do in Microsoft Jigsaw!”
Come to think of it, this is the type of game that would have been great had it been released around the time Windows 8 made its debut — richly designed and teeming with features, this is a perfect showcase for touch enabled devices that run Microsoft’s modern operating platforms.
And the ability to create your own puzzles (using images on your computer, or by taking pictures from camera), means that players will never run out of challenges. Works on all versions of Windows 8.
