X-plosive JigSaw Puzzles Pro is a Windows game designed with the professional puzzle player in mind. Trough this game I tried to offer you all the tools a professional game should offer. I'll also introduce you some new tools, never seen before in other games. To get all the details please read the features section.
Some features that make this game unique:
And since the Pro version is sometimes too overwhelming for beginners I split it into two versions: the Lite version and this Pro version. If you are playing a jigsaw puzzle game for the first time and you aren't looking for any exquisite features I suggest that you should try the Lite version first.

Want more information? A small description of a big game:
X-plosive JigSaw Puzzles Pro allows you to cut any JPEG image (even your own image) into a realistic jigsaw puzzle that you can later reassemble. You can choose from 400 beautiful jigsaw puzzles available online and 54 piece cutting styles, with more or less chaos when generating them. Just look at the screenshoths by clicking the puzzle pieces to the right.
This game has everything a complete jigsaw puzzle game should have: a small picture of the jigsaw puzzle, a real-size ghost (transparent) image, a usefull loupe, a scattering tool for jigsaw pieces, an arranging tool, three-state pins that even stick themselves when you place the piece on the ghost and even a cheating tool.
Most of the tools were present in other games too, but they were rarely of any use. In my game I changed that. For example the pins right now are extremely helpfull if you have enough patience to play 1000 pieces jigsaw puzzles!
Example #1: Auto-pin, when enabled, pins automaticaly the pieces on the ghost if you land them close enough to the correct position. The pins have three states: when you want to move a pinned piece, left-click on the pin and the pin will become temporarily disabled. Move the piece and them click on the pin again to pin down the piece.
Example #2: You never have enough place to move around the jigsaw puzzle pieces. Well, in X-plosive Jigsaw Puzles Pro I've built a unique scrolling system. Drag the background using the right-click button and all your space related problems will be solved!
Example #3: The loupe is now usefull and customizable. By left-clicking on the loupe button you activate it in the static mode. The lope will not follow your mouse cursor (this was confusing) but stay in a corner and its image follow the cursor. You can continue playing the game with the loupe turned on without any intrusion! Also you can set it's zoom factor in the 'Options' menu. Nifty, eh?
There are, however, downsizes to this game: X-plosive JigSaw Puzzles Pro has so many features that you won't know where to start from! I'd suggest suggest reading the context sensitive help (press F1 during game play) to find out what all those buttons do....
If you feel overwhelmed by the number of features, if you are a beginner puzzler or simply enjoy simple things I'd suggest that you try first the X-plosive Jigsaw Puzzles Lite. The Lite version has a far more simplified interface.
Gregory J. Nashif: I HAVE PLAYED nearly every jigsaw game available for the PC. While they vary in look and design, the gameplay is generally the same. Fairly decent and average. You spend your twenty-five bucks, download the products, get some fairly decent pics, around 50 in a single category, then go online and see many more puzzle packs available for another twenty-five bucks a pop.
