Board » Chris' Puzzle 1.0 fat

Chris' Puzzle transforms PICT and JPEG image files into electronic jigsaw puzzles. The puzzles are based on a unique grid pattern, rather than the traditional puzzle structure of square pieces embellished with hook & eye joints. The unusual pieces to which that grid pattern gives rise make the geometry of the puzzles richer, while adding to their overall complexity and challenge. But since challenge is one thing and aggravation is another, a few features of real puzzles have been omitted - pieces are never rotated, flipped upside down, or still stuck together in little clumps when they are dumped out on this virtual table. So all you have to do is find the matching pieces and put 'em together.

* Fully functional jigsaw puzzle program. No crippled demo software here.
* PICT and JPEG image support.
* Internet hypertext puzzle annotation (see included puzzles for examples).

Recommended Items & Capabilities:
* Internet Config - makes all Internet-oriented features much happier.
* Monitor capable of displaying 256, Thousands or Millions of colors. The more
colors, the better.
