Default [GAME] Jigsolve Me! - free jigsaw puzzle game [R]01-01-2012 [U]10-03-2012

Name: Jigsolve Me!

Take a look at Jigsolve Me!, my first Windows Phone game! I hope you like it!

Screenshots:





Demo video: here

Official Facebook Page: here.

Description:
Jigsolve Me! is a simple and fun jigsaw puzzle game. Unlike other games, Jigsolve Me! uses the whole screen for the puzzle - no ads, buttons or menus are displayed during gameplay.

You can quickly start a game by choosing one of the predefined difficulty settings. You can also start a customized game where you can adjust all available settings.

There are 30 images included with the game and we are working on a feature that will allow you to download more images from within the game.

To improve the gameplay we have created some special in-game features, like snapping to edges and locking puzzle pieces.

Have fun!

Version history:

Version 1.1

[New] Automatic locking of corner pieces.

Could be some bug, thanks for sharing this issue. Pieces thrown out of the screen are supposed to come back almost immediately.

Was it a single piece or a few pieces joined together(one bigger piece)?

I will test some more and will try to reproduce it and fix it. No one else has reported it so it must be happening rarely.

Once again, thanks for the feedback.

Thanks for trying to reproduce it. I am glad you did not succeed, though It means this issue happens very rarely.

I am happy you like the game! More images are coming soon, so stay tuned!

Lmao!
Sorry, that sounded funny.
"New app everybody!"
"I broke it"

Anyway, cool app! Thanks!

Alright, I had it for the past 3 weeks or so and here is the rundown.

The good: Great app, great collection of lovely puzzles with different themes and levels of difficulty. Amused me for hours and is a great time killer, especially during travel. Loved the choices provided and found it hard to put down.

The not so good: Buggy, occasionally sluggish, pieces do mysteriously disappear - had just one to go, so know it wasn't there. Among the biggest bugs and annoyances - pieces not turning when supposed to, pieces not locking in when they should and the constant 'locked pieces' popup notifications, even for pieces just stuck due to bug. Some puzzles had to be abandoned because the they got either too sluggish or pieces became unmanageable. Once or twice couldn't quit the whole game, not just particular puzzle played at the time.

Overall: Great game and concept regardless of the above. Once the small bits and pieces are ironed out, it will be one of my personal favorites. Would love the opportunity to use own pictures for puzzles.

Thank You very much for creating it, I really enjoyed it and wish you all the best with games development, I think you are on the right track

Hello enigma1nz,

Thank you very much for your opinion and feedback. This type of feedback, especially the "not so good" part, really helps me improve the game. I promise I'll do my best to fix all those problems you mentioned

I would appreciate if you could answer the following questions, they will help me identify the problems and come up with solutions/fixes.

1. What phone are you using? Should not really matter, but is always good to know.

2. What do you mean by "pieces not turning when supposed to"? Do you mean that in a game with enabled rotation pieces do not rotate when you tap them?

3. What do you mean by "pieces not locking in when they should"? There are two cases when pieces are locked: (1) when an unlocked piece is matched with a locked piece, the combined piece gets locked and (2) when you position a corner piece in its correct corner it gets locked.

4. About the "locked piece" popup: it appears when you try to move a locked piece more than certain number of pixels, to tell you not to try and to let you know that this is not a bug. I introduced this in the latest version along with "automatic locking". If you lock the piece yourself, you probably know about the locking, but if not, you might think it is some bug, hence the popup. Let me know if you have an idea how to improve that.

5. What do you mean by "couldn't quit the whole game"? You cannot get to the main menu or when you get there and press Back it does not exit?


Once again, thank you very much for taking the time to write here.

I am almost finished with the new version. It will have 15 more images and ability to import images from your phone. Hope you'll like it
