Ultimate Jigsaw introduces a few of features never before seen in a BYOND game. The most notable is the ability to drag objects around not only on the screen, but from one map to another, in a completely different window.

If you'll also notice, the game uses an entirely screen object based interface. You can still drag it around, minimize, maximize, close it, and even resize it like you would any other interface. You can also resize the interface via Settings(F2). Through Settings(F2), you can also change the Window Mode(F9). There are four different Window Modes(F9).

The first and default mode is Single. It will consist of a single window containing all of your interface buttons and puzzle pieces.

The second two are HDouble and VDouble. They are both single windows with two maps on them, side by side. In VDouble, the maps will be one on top of the other. The first map, left/top, will contain the main interface and the other map, right/bottom, will contain all the unconnected pieces of your puzzle. HDouble is designed for wide-screen monitors. VDouble is designed for portrait style monitors. If your screen is not large enough to support it, you are most likely to encounter graphical errors in these modes.

The fourth mode is Separate. In Separate Mode, there are two maps that act exactly like the previous two mode, except in this mode they are in two different windows.

There are four difficulty levels in Ultimate Jigsaw;
Easy - 40 Piece Puzzle
Intermediate - 120 Piece Puzzle
Painful - 240 Piece Puzzle
Impossible - 999 Piece Puzzle

There is a thumbnail of the current puzzle in the bottom righthand corner of the screen. Just move your mouse over it to see the full image.

Ultimate Jigsaw also introduces a game mode not present in any other jigsaw puzzle game; the ability to rotate pieces. This mode adds a whole new level of complexity and difficulty to the game. You can also toggle this mode in the Settings(F2). In this mode, you simply right-click on a piece to rotate it clockwise and middle-click, if you have that option, to rotate it counter-clockwise. You can perform this action on a piece that you are dragging as well. You can also use the Settings(F2) to reverse the rotation directions.

The Settings(F2) menu contain a few options that you can play with.

You can toy with the background color of the window(s). You can change the Window Mode(F9) and window sizes. You can turn Outlines(F6) for the puzzle pieces off. This will decrease the amount of time that it takes to render the puzzle. You can turn Rotation(F7) on and you can reverse the direction of rotations.

The controls are as follows:

Right-Click - Drag Puzzle Pieces
Left-Click - Rotates Piece Clockwise (Counter-Clockwise If Reversed)
Middle-Click - Rotates Piece Counter-Clockwise (Clockwise If Reversed)

Esc: End Puzzle
Tab: Switch Window Focus

Pretty nifty :) I wasn't able to actually rotate the pieces by right or middle clicking on them, which I thought I read was possible. Or at least, it wasn't displaying rotation. When I switched to window mode (F9), the last couple remaining pieces appeared in the bottome part of the window rotated.

I know this has been around a while, but it's the first time I've played it and I liked it.

It sure could. I could even look at them if they were posted.
