Create masterpieces in Mandie Manzano Jigsaw Puzzle Art!
Puzzlers are dominating the top spots in the app store and we always discuss how successful this genre of game apps is among the players but what about real jigsaw puzzles? How common is it to come across a classic puzzle game in new or older releases? Usually these games are for kids and there’s nothing tempting for an adult player to download them. Amidst these easy to solve games, a new gem appeared which uses beautiful illustrations by artist Mandie Manzano developed by studio Octo Mini, Mandie Manzano Jigsaw Puzzle.
The game includes a total of 64 stained glass painting by Mandie Manzano and they are separated in sets. The first set is unlocked but as for the rest, you’ll have to purchase them through the IAPs for $ 0.99 for each set or take advantage of the discount offers and buy 4 sets for $ 2.99.
What I really appreciate in the game is how interactive it is, in the sense that the player can make their own adjustments regarding the number of pieces (can start from 12 and reach up to 2000), activate or not the piece rotation to make things more challenging, and even change the BG patterns.
The controls might seem a bit complicated at first but hey are very easy to master and get used to in no time. You drag to move a piece, you pinch it to zoom and tap on one to rotate it, if you have activated the rotation of course. Other controls include the preview to take a look at the complete image to get an idea where to place your pieces, and more. You can also keep pieces on the board or in a “tray” similar to how you keep physical jigsaw puzzle pieces in a box for safety.
The paintings are gorgeous and stunning with beautiful colors and everything is in HD resolution. The fairy tale feeling and look that flows from the paintings and the BG music that accompanies them create a magical experience and a calming feeling that is perfect for those who want to relax and enjoy something without tension.
All in all, Mandie Manzano Jigsaw Puzzle is perfect for all ages and all types of players. It is such a great joy to put all the pieces together and then admire the complete image and feel proud of your achievement. Of course, nothing compares to the true feeling of pieces in your hand and the touch of the finalized image but as a game app, MMJPA is definitely one of the best of its kind.
