Lava Jigsaw HD brings the fun and challenge of real jigsaw puzzles to the iPad. It offers a unique multi-screen play area with pieces of consistent size, making it suitable for players of all ages. Puzzle pieces are fully 3D rendered and look and play like real pieces. The smaller puzzles are great for children or for a quick game, with puzzles of over 900 pieces to challenge even pro puzzlers. Puzzles feature super high resolution pictures with vibrant color and detail from top illustrators, such as Nicky Boehme and Sam Park, as well as some of the best stock photography in the world.
Lava Jigsaw HD is a free download, and includes a selection of beautiful sample puzzles. The extensive puzzle library contains a fantastic range of themed puzzle collections including expansive landscapes, nostalgic illustrations, exotic places, fascinating science, wild animals and much more. Each puzzle includes rich descriptive background information, as well as links to Wikipedia and other sources for more detailed information, making it a valuable educational resource to inspire young players.
Lava Jigsaw HD is the first iPad app designed to satisfy pro puzzlers. Though the current puzzle library contains puzzles up to 902 pieces (41 x 22 pieces, virtual size 82 x 44 cm), the technology built into Lava Jigsaw HD enables it to support puzzles with 1000s of pieces. Powerful navigation controls include a touchpad to quickly pan around the virtual board, bookmarks to move quickly to set positions, and a fast zoom function to display an overview of the play area. Groups of single pieces in one area can be lifted in one operation, and easily moved to another location. The board can also be dragged and swiped for precise scrolling, making it fun to assemble puzzles of all sizes.
Puzzlers earn points and achievements for completing puzzles, and can have several puzzles in progress at any time. This feature makes Lava Jigsaw HD suitable for puzzlers who share their iPads with others, such as families or social groups, as each player can load up their own puzzle when they play. Lava Jigsaw HD also features large buttons and easy-to-read text to make navigation simple for players of all ages.
New puzzle collections with varied themes are released each week, and free sample collections are released every month, enabling players to build up their own custom puzzle library. Puzzles can be played with various difficulty options, including having pieces randomly rotated (earning the player twice the points for completion) and having edge pieces come up first in the tray (for puzzlers who like to start with the frame). Players thus have full freedom to play in the way they like.
