Description: If you are a fan of jigsaw puzzles, then this game is for you. There are a number of images that you can choose from and there is also the option of loading in your own. There is also a slider you can use to change the size of the puzzle. This is a seated experience, where you do the puzzle on a table in front of you. While you are doing the puzzle, you can choose to listen to one of the internet radio stations available.

To add your own images, you need to locate the ‘Custom’ folder that can be found in the game’s root directory. You can add a maximum of 14 images to this folder, of which should be as high a resolution as you can find (preferably at least 4k width), in order to get the best results. The images also need to be JPG files and not contain any large areas of the same colour, to prevent identical jigsaw pieces when choosing the largest sized puzzle. The jigsaw puzzles are a 2:1 size ratio, so if the images are not this ratio then they will be cropped.

Review: You might find this hard to believe, but there are people all over the world who enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles. Sadly for my personal life, I am one of those people. This game certainly does what it needs to do, but there is nothing clever or original here. It is little more than a jigsaw puzzle in VR and nothing else. You can at least upload your own images to use and you can set the difficulty. But you can only use one motion controller and you can only move a single piece at a time, no sections you might have made outside the main puzzle. I do feel it is a little overpriced, but for those of us who do enjoy jigsaws, it is still worth a look.
