JigsawThis is a Flash puzzle game for the Joomla! content management system. This would be suitable for a site aimed at children – or for adults who like puzzles. The component displays images in a selected folder as a jigsaw puzzle. Additional user-created images can easily be added, and a different folder can be specified – it is possible to display multiple versions of the component using different images, with differing difficulty levels. The game requires the Flash plugin to be enabled in the user’s browser.

There is a fully flexible layout that can be integrated into any web page, and an unlimited number of pictures can be displayed.

Other features include:

a puzzle timer which posts the user’s time scores to a database table.

The puzzle also includes social sharing. Encourage puzzle users to post a link to your site on their Twitter feed or Facebook profile.
