This program succeeds at what it sets out to do!

Jigsaw Galore is a program that aims to simulate jigsaw puzzles in real life and actually does
succeed. The pieces are all available on screen, there is no scrolling around looking for
pieces and these can be resized while the puzzle is being solved.

There are 3 difficulty levels as well as a default level and an option to choose the number of
pieces in the puzzle (from 4 to 4000). There is an option to have music playing in the
background and it is possible to turn the sound effects off at the click of a menu button. In
fact most options are available through task bar buttons, including the various cheat options
(for those whose jigsaw skills are lacking). The download version is fully functioning and has
ten puzzles included.

After the program has been in use for ten days, there is a "reminder" to register the program
on startup but this is easily gotten rid of to play.
