Description

Puzzle Master is a single-person jigsaw game. It is a re-release of Jigsaws Galore.

The game starts in a small window from which the player can select a puzzle group and a picture from within that group. The same window allows the player to customise the puzzle's difficulty, the size and therefore the number of pieces, as well as giving access to saved games. There are seventy five puzzles to choose from and five levels of difficulty.

Gameplay is straight forward, pieces are selected by clicking on them and then they are dragged into position. The player can sort pieces manually or the game can perform that chore, by shape or by colour, for them if they wish. There are also 'trays' into which pieces can be placed for later use and, most importantly, there is a hint feature, an auto-complete feature, and a save game feature. The game has sound effects and MIDI format music plus it allows the player to use their own format MIDI format music files.

The game is intended to be played with the mouse but some mouse/keyboard shortcuts are used, e.g Ctrl+left button - Rotate a piece or group of connected pieces left.
