JigSawed is a puzzle video game developed and published by Microsoft in the Microsoft Entertainment Pack 2 for Windows 3 in 1991. The game is a simple jigsaw puzzle, only it uses primitive shapes instead of standard fully-interlocking jigsaw shapes. It has a few options to customize the layout, but that's about it.
I didn't have this game growing up, but some of my friends did. However, since it's just a primitive jigsaw puzzle game, I didn't bother playing it very much. As an adult trying to reacquaint myself with the games of Windows 3, I played the game more to try and see all the features. I beat all the include photos on 2020-07-30 using rectangular pieces.
I do not own this game, but I have beaten all the included photos.
Best Version: Windows 3
— This section contains spoilers! —
- The puzzle area expands to accommodate larger resolutions for those few people who had them.
- The program doesn't take into account 256 color bitmaps.
- As jigsaw puzzles go, this one is really weak. Most of the options are entirely inconsequential.
- You can't control how many pieces the puzzle will be. Instead, the count is based solely on the size of the bitmap you include.
- The game is media challenged lacking animation, sound, and music.
- The included photos are terrible. They don't make very good use of dithering, are mostly boring to look at, and not very conducive to the default puzzle shape.
