Get ready for a puzzling good time with Patchworkz™! The insanely entertaining puzzler is back, featuring a fresh look and tons of all-new puzzles. Relax and enjoy gorgeous puzzle designs made from materials such as glass, wood, fabric, stone, metal and paper. If you crave a bit of competition, you can test your skill in the exciting new Fever Mode! A mix of lightning-fast game play and a scoring system that rewards patience and precision allows you to pick up and play for five minutes… or five hours. This isn’t your ordinary puzzle game – it’s much, much more! (BigFish Sales Blurb)
This game is, as it says, fun. The pictures are colourful, the shapes are interesting, and, as you progress and the size of the pieces gets smaller, they become increasingly more difficult . There are appropriate sound effects for the different materials used. When you complete the puzzles for each material, you gain a disk – when all are collected you get the Bonus games.
Good for eye/hand co-ordination, this game is great for a bit of relaxation – unless you play the Fever Mode, which I never do. A good kid’s game, and okay for adults too if you don’t want to tax your brain too much.
I recommend it for families.
