Microsoft Jigsaw app is available in the Windows Store once againWritten by Hammad Saleem on July 11, 2014 - 06:09AM @hammadsalim
Back in March, Microsoft Jigsaw, a puzzle game, made its way to Windows Store but was later pulled due to unknown reasons. The app is now back in the Windows Phone store for users to test their skills. The main motive behind the game is pretty simple: just fill in the missing piece of the Jigsaw puzzle to complete levels.
The game comes with hundreds of challenging puzzles to test your skills with three different modes: Classic Jigsaw, Jigsaw Jam, and Daily Challenges. In Classic Jigsaw, you can choose from tons of images available in the game, along with a difficulty level. On the other hand, Jigsaw Jam mode brings time into play as well, and you have to place each puzzle as quickly as possible to make a high score.
"Introducing the all new Microsoft Jigsaw - the perfect fit for your Windows 8 device! Play hundreds of puzzles in three exciting game modes: Classic Jigsaw, Jigsaw Jam, and Daily Challenges. Intuitive controls make Microsoft Jigsaw great on your mouse & keyboard and excellent on a touchscreen," the app description reads.
Users can even choose custom puzzles by importing their own photos from the device or capture using the camera. The game is optimized for both tablet and PC users, with Xbox Live integration so you can find out about your achievements and check out the leaderboards.
