Mystery Picture

 

Can you guess what the scrambled picture is? That’s the basis of this highly unusual game. You have to pick the right answer from a list of eight clues. Answer correctly, and the picture is added to your collection.

There are 15 pictures, one for each category, in the free version.

If you like puzzles, and have a gift for recognizing pictures cut up into 64 pieces and jumbled, Mystery Picture is the game for you. Each picture can usually be solved in less than a minute, and the pieces are always randomly shuffled, so even with the free version, you will have hours of fun!

Gameplay

To play the game, look at the picture and see if you can guess what it is, from the eight orange clues. Press on the correct clue to move to the next picture. If your answer is correct, the picture will be added to your collection (you can view your collection at any time from the menu in the top left corner). If you can’t quite figure out what a picture is, press the Shuffle button, and the pieces will be shuffled, hopefully giving you a better insight. Every few seconds, the pieces are shuffled automatically. There is a time limit for guessing a picture. Click the button to upgrade your Mystery Picture to 200 pictures.

Tips and Strategy

Play smart–don’t just place pieces randomly, hoping to solve the puzzle by trial and error.

There are two important differences, compared with regular jigsaw puzzles: (a) the pieces are all square, so the shape of a piece does not help; and (b) you are presented with pieces one at a time.

You can use the overlap feature, by placing one piece on top of another. The cell border turns red to indicate this. This allows you to delay positioning the piece, while you move on to other pieces.

Use the small image of the completed puzzle at the top of the screen. If you need a more detailed view, press the Check Answer button, but it will cost you some turns.

Enjoy Gridzzle! on your device. It’s a great way to exercise your brain while enjoying the fun of playing a very visually oriented game.

Mystery Picture players say 

There aren’t that many pieces in a puzzle, but because they are all square, this is probably a bit harder than some of the jigsaw puzzles I did while I was in jail. Yeah, didn’t see that coming, did you?
–Paul “nicer than I look” McEvil

Okay, so the objective is to put together a picture, but what I want to know is why break it apart in the first place? I’m asking for a friend…
–Jimmy “don’t really get it” Hahn

Gridzzle! is my latest obsession, but I find it healthier than my previous obsessions, such as chocolate, binge watching TV shows and gambling and…I think I should stop there.
