5 puzzle apps for kids and adults

When I was a child, I loved to collect jigsaw puzzles. Watching how the image of an animal or forest comes to life gradually, part by part, gave me great satisfaction. Unfortunately, the number of options was then limited, so you could only re-collect them many times until they lost their former charm.

My hobby for puzzles is over, but our kids can still have a good time putting them together. It's also a great way to keep them from distracting you while you go about your business. Luckily there are many puzzle apps available for both Android and iPhone. We will talk about them today.

Puzzles Epic by Kristanix Games

Puzzles Epic is a great app that is available for Android and iOS. It contains over 8,000 high-resolution photos. It does not offer artificial pictures, but uses real photographs of nature, animals and cities. Thus, the child can broaden his horizons. If you wish, you can create an individual puzzle from your own photos.

There are 11 difficulty levels. Some puzzles have over 600 pieces. Each time they will break into different pieces, so they can be reassembled. You can collect several at the same time - the progress of building each is saved in memory.

The name is similar to the previous one, but the pictures are completely different, but high quality photographs with animals, cities and architecture are also used. There are about 2000 options (a new puzzle appears every day), and there are also 5 different difficulty levels. The maximum number of parts is 550 pieces. There is a timer mode for those who like to set records. During the assembly process, the result is automatically saved, so you can collect several puzzles at the same time.

For some reason, during the installation, a request is received to access the phone book. I gave it up, but the app continues to run smoothly. Installation is completely free, however no updates will be received. Therefore, it is better to buy additional sets, the cost of which is from $ 3. Yes, a little expensive, but the landscapes are pretty beautiful and it's a pleasure to collect them.

Puzzles by Titan Inc

The Sudoku Puzzles by Titan Inc app is available for Android and iOS. There are about 5 thousand images in his collection, each of which can be broken down from 6 to 1600 details. New variants are added almost every day. There are 4 game modes - you can choose any of the options: switch parts, rotate, rotate or shift. This increases the level of complexity.


As an ardent online Sudoku fan, I've been looking for a really handy app for a long time that allows you to click the number puzzle with maximum comfort. My search ended when I (quite by accident) discovered the Sudoku Daily app in the Android Market. In my opinion, this is the best Sudoku program ever created by mankind. Automatic color highlighting of numbers, pencil, unlimited undo, several types of prompts, automatic filling of possible candidates - this is just an incomplete list of functions of this excellent application. The game is available in paid and free versions, the free one allows you to solve one free online Sudoku puzzle per day for each difficulty level.

Puzzle by Critical Hit Software

This app offers over 20,000 jigsaw puzzles to choose from, including jigsaw puzzles by Joseph Burgess and Nicky Boehme. You can choose the number of parts you want - up to 400 pieces for the iPhone and 1,024 for the iPad, which is slightly less compared to other applications in this review, but it will be enough for a phone.

For convenience, you can place the pieces in the desired area of ​​the screen, for example, the sky in the upper right corner, and the grass in the lower left. The leaderboard will let you know how good you are in comparison with other users of the application.

It is possible to use your own photos to create puzzles. You can choose the number of fragments to assemble, as well as the level of difficulty. One of the most interesting categories is paintings from famous artists - a good way to get involved in art. During the assembly, pleasant music plays, which, if desired, can be turned off.

Puzzle by Ravensburger AG

Ravensburger is a jigsaw puzzle company based in Germany with over 100 years of experience. In her application of the same name, you can choose the number of parts for a picture - from 20 to 500 pieces, but that's not all. You can control various settings, such as allowing the game to sort by edge or color.

It uses a three-dimensional image of parts and realistic physics when moving them. You can customize the look of the table by choosing a background to your liking. Support for Google Play Services functions, allows you to compare your records and achievements with the results of other players. No internet connection required to play.

No more lost parts or blockages on your dining table. Just launch the app on iOS or Android, choose one puzzle from 20,000 variants and start collecting. The developers say they tested the program with 100 people before publishing it. The game is suitable for both beginners and children, as well as for real professionals.
