Aqua Jigsaw & Jigsaw Wild
Aqua Jigsaw is a fun mobile game that keeps you going on those long trips that seem to drag on forever. It’s a classic jigsaw game with a nice twist – you’re timed on how fast you can assemble your puzzle together. The goal is to beat your score, or beat friends’ scores. A particularly neat feature is being able to customize your own puzzle, according to a saved photo of your choice.
With a name like ‘Aqua Jigsaw’, it’s kinda obvious that all of the puzzle you’re solving are water and sea based, giving the player a nice theme to play with. The 24 photos featured in the game are aesthetically pleasing and are customized to the iPhone’s 320×480 screen, varying from sea animals to land forms – they seem to fit the game perfectly.
Jigsaw Wild is (unsurprisingly) similar to Aqua Jigsaw. Gameplay doesn’t differ greatly from that of AJ, but opts for a different theme. Jigsaw Wild includes a variety of good quality images – birds, insects, reptiles and animals etc. Like Aqua Jigsaw, it’s a worthy addition to your iPhone or iPod touch.
Both games load quickly, rarely lag, and perhaps most importantly, don’t cause a major drain on your battery life. I was impressed with the nicely polished animations and encourage you to take a look at these games.
