Mr. Bill's Adventureland Review
Reviewed by Mr. Bill & Lela
For all of you Jigsaw Puzzle lovers out there (and for those new to them), this is a great program! It is based on the Looney Tunes Cartoons with some of our all time favorite characters like Bugs Bunny, Tweety & Sylvester, Pepe Le Pew, The Tazmanian Devil, and others.
The game gives you a choice of 25 different 'Love-Struck' images to work on, and the images can be selected either deliberately or randomly on a choice of 6 background surfaces. And with 5 different difficulty levels and many variations like flipped or rotated pieces, that results in a selection of several hundred possible puzzles.
The pieces can be large and easy for younger players, with a simple click-and-drag interface, talking help at the top of the screen, sound effects and music (which can be turned off, if desired), and even a 'ghost outline' of the finished picture on which to place the pieces if you feel that you need it. You can access a picture of the puzzle that you are doing for inspiration, or have the computer place a piece for you or even assemble the whole puzzle for you, one piece at a time.
But for adults or expert puzzlers the pieces can be made tiny, flipped, or rotated, with no hints available, and there is even a built-in timer (which can be paused for needed breaks) so that you can race-against-the-clock if you so desire.
You can save puzzles to finish later (and pick up where you left off) so they can be worked on at your leisure. And they can be saved under multiple names, so different family members could each have a puzzle in progress at the same time. You can even print out a certificate when finished, with your name and the time it took you, if you're competing against each other or just want to brag.
But best of all, when you have successfully completed your puzzle it comes to life with a short (and loving) video clip from the classic cartoon! This is a game which the whole family can enjoy, with none of the space requirements or frustration from lost pieces that accompany standard hard copy jigsaws. A great choice for jigsaw lovers of all ages!!
