And as seen from our recent Press Release, Spb has released Spb Puzzle and our thoughts are that its really really good! First a quick blurb from Spb themselves.

So, where do we go from there? Follow the break for a picture INTENSIVE review of Spb Puzzle.
If you’re a puzzle person, you’ll love it and I’m not a HUGE puzzle person but I like it a LOT! By default you start off with one puzzle; the Annunciation seen below in before, puzzled and finished versions :) And from there (once you finish it) you unlock a second puzzle (which is all you get from the free version).
Also afterwards you get a little blurb about the puzzle and what the artwork is. There are 10 puzzles in the game by default but don’t worry you can load up custom puzzles! and also download puzzle packs from SPB’s website! But you need to buy the game to do that! Right now they have Crazy pack and Flower pack. Just fair warning, the size of the image tells you the size of the puzzle! so a picture taken with your camera phone WILL be big! even on “Easy” difficulty. So i chose my dinner from the other night (yes i took a picture!) and LOOK at all the pieces on EASY! On Hard level the pieces look the same size, but the board is much bigger.
The movement is very smooth and moving the pieces around the board are very easy, even for my sausage fingers! Something that I would like is a zoom option, but that would make the pieces very small and hard to use. So, go get it, try it and let us know what you think! the game is great, moves very smooth and the haptic feedback when you put the right piece in its place is very nice. Its good for children and adults alike! Below you’ll find MORE pictures.
