This is a very simple shadow picture puzzle. Roughly 6 shadow shapes are put onto each page, and rotated to fit. Each picture has a Japanese name, so you are at a disadvantage if you can't read the language. When the shadows are in the right place the colour picture is then revealed. Most of the pictures are based on Japanese art. There are 3 worlds, each with 18 puzzles. You have to complete the first 6 of each of the 3 worlds before you can move on. This is not a jigsaw puzzle, and the content would not appeal to children. The music is very bland, and although I can see potential in this idea, the makers have failed to deliver anything that is purchasable. Thank goodness for the Gamehouse 1 hour try, as it can now be deleted.

I have never seen puzzles quite like these. What you see are black-and-white shadows, and it's up to you to decide how they should look in the picture. Once you place them correctly, the picture is colorized and filled in, and the pictures are quite beautiful. But figuring out how those dark splotches relate to make a picture--now that's tricky! I find these puzzles to be addictive, very involved, and well worth the time. If you like puzzles, you will like this game.

It is impossible to imagine who the makers of this game were targeting. It is slightly too complex for a child, and way too simple for an adult. It is just clicky. And if you manage to click the right part into the right place, whoohoo! you change it to colour. This is not a jigsaw. It is the simplest Japanese line drawings clicked around an axis. This is the worst game I have ever come accross. I know there is a free trial, and thank goodness for that, but I wish GH would exercise some quality control.
