If you love puzzles and really enjoy those that offer beautiful images with soothing music at the end of a long day, then Ozaiko is the game for you. This very unique, extremely attractive game for iPad is perfect for those who like straight up puzzles without lengthy stories or silly characters. Ozaiko takes gorgeous photographs, slices them into circular pieces, and lets you rearrange them to create a striking completed puzzle picture.
To move and rearrange the pieces, you just tap and slide. Pieces can be moved inward or outward, around the orb, and can also be mirrored with a double-tap. As you play, you can check the completed photo for assistance by just holding down on the center circle. Here is a short preview of the game and just click here if you cannot see the video:
The photos and details
The images you will see in Ozaiko are really quite amazing. There are different albums with photos from all over the world and you can read a brief description of the photographer who took the stunning pictures. Ozaiko offers Game Center support with many achievements, Split Screen for two-player mode, and tracks your number of moves, amount of time, and how many times you checked the completed image.
Ozaiko provides a calming, pleasant gaming experience for puzzle fans. Not only is there some challenge when you begin, but you can increase the difficulty yourself by adjusting the number of slices for the puzzle. So, if three slices is too easy for you and you want it to be a little harder, just adjust the number to nine or even 18 pieces. And, the relaxing, meditative background music, created specifically for the game, truly completes the package.
Ozaiko is currently only available for iPad, requires iOS 7.0 or later, and is just $2.99 on the App Store.
