Libre Jigsaw is an AWESOME cross platform Jigsaw Puzzle Game written in Java 6!

Libre Jigsaw version 2012.01.02

This is my 'Pièce de résistance', and I am very proud of it. According to one user review at a popular download site:

    "Best Free Puzzle Software I downloaded so far ... can be even better than most of the paid ones ..."

It is my goal to continue improving this application to make it the absolute best jigsaw puzzle software anywhere.

Game Features

    Tile shape - square or hexagonal.
    Number of pieces (approx. 12 to 250)
    Individual pieces and smaller connected groups always "float" above larger connected groups, preventing smaller groups and single pieces from being hidden.
    Random shape generation - non-uniform shapes guarantee that no two plays will be the same.
    Image preview
    Images are scaled to fit on your screen.
    Option to select background color.
    Multiple selection for moving pieces.
    Multiple layers (play areas) provide more space for sorting and arranging pieces.
    Choose from the in-game image, or solve one of your own photos as a jigsaw puzzle.

What's New

    Jigsaw puzzles can be saved and loaded.

Outstanding Bugs

    Puzzles cannot be loaded at a lower resolution than they were saved at.

Wish List

    Zoom in for working with small pieces.
    Auto-arrange to sort pieces into a grid.
    Transparent or semi-transparent layers to see pieces at a lower level.
    Set the software up to get images from a feed or repository (Flickr, deviantART, ...)
    Leave a comment - let me know what you want.

New version of Libre Jigsaw.

(Formerly Puzzle Games Collection)

This version will be packaged as native installers for Windows, Mac and Debian.

The biggest change for this version is the introduction of a jigsaw save/load feature. There are still a few wrinkles to work out (It can't load a game that was saved at a higher resolution), but I consider this to be a huge step forward in features development.

I will be working on getting Debian and Mac installers out over the next month or so, as well as polishing the new features and adding a few more.
