This game isn't so bad but the GFX rendering could do with some improvements and few to pick up. But if you like to expand your mind with Crosswords, Wordsearch and Chain Letters, so ahead, but don't spend your points too often.

I have this game for several systems. I absolutely love it. It has all the small games that I enjoy and some that were new to me before finding them on here. The games also have mini games after you have beat one that are fun.

Puzzler World is a huge crossword magazine on your desktop PC: Wordsearch, Fitword, Sudoku, Crossword, Silhouette, Spot the Difference, Code word, Hangman... and many others, in many languages.As far as this game goes it provided me with some light entertainment to kill a few hours here and there and although the resolution could have been tweaked better I refuse to complain considering I bought this game during a sale for 0,79€. There's really nothing negative to say about Puzzler World, it did actually hold my interest and I enjoyed playing. If you enjoy crosswords, Sudoku’s, word searches, letter games and similar puzzles you can’t really go wrong!

Decent little puzzler.

Has plenty of different games to choose from.

They might be a bit simple for adults but perfect for kids.

Great if you want some quick puzzles to kill some time.

I like the word games the most. Includes Crosswords, Word find, and Spot the Difference puzzles. I even bought the second Puzzler World.

Its not for everyone but its worth the buy when its on sale and if anything its good for when you need a game to wind you down after a long day.

UK’s largest puzzle supplier has someday the idea to concentrate over 1k puzzles into this game.
It contains a dozen different puzzle types like Sudoku, Fillout, Spot the difference and so on.
For every puzzle chosen from a 4x4 matrix you earn coins in a 1 of 3 choice which are payable hintpoints in game. After playing a while the elements are quite repeative with small differences. At puzzle number above 100 the puzzles become a little harder. That means if you started with a 6 number Sudoku now it raises to a 9 number Sudoku (which is formally known as normal Sudoku).
There are 6 languages avaible, unfortunately sometimes with little translation errors in German for example. It's quite fun but sometimes really nerve-wracking.

It's a reasonably fun diversion, but there are a few things that make it so that I can't recommend it. First and foremost being that it's not too hard to find puzzles of a similar ilk online for free -- and often with better interfaces. (Just compare the Link-a-Pix in the game to the same found on Conceptis's own website.) The second problem is that some of the games aren't really puzzles per se... showing the user a picture and asking them to memorize it for three questions isn't a puzzle, it's just a memory test. It's not a puzzle unless one has to puzzle something out. Memorization is just an irritation. There's also a staggering difference in apparent audience between puzzles; the Codeword puzzle is clearly meant for advanced puzzlers, while Silhouette is obviously set for the grade school crowd, but they're all mixed in together.

Finally, though it's a minor element, it bothers me quite a bit that the Equate "puzzles" don't follow the proper order of operations. The only thing worse than a puzzle that's stupidly simple is one that's only challenging because the desired answer is actually wrong.

"Just one more go!"

A phrase that came to me so often with this game it became worrying lol. A good mix of all the puzzle games that made the books so addictive, with added, (if far too easy), achievements

7 hours to get all Steam achievements, mostly without hints.
That works out to 3 minutes per puzzle, and that's not including the victory gift animation.

This is a collection of easy to medium (at best) puzzles of 14 types. The most interesting one is the code puzzle, but there are only 35 of those in challenge mode. Most of the puzzle types suffer from the small size; they seem designed to be displayed on much smaller devices than computer monitor.

Localization: You have a choice of British and American English, plus 4 other languages. The german localization is patchy, with "Wortkette" converting ÄÖÜ to AOU, and occasional spelling errors (most noteable "Paneten" having the planet "Merker"). Also, the German keyboard layout doesn't work (Y <-> Z).

Although it's on sale for -.99, I give it a thumbs down since I know a few independent puzzle games that give more bang for your buck, e.g. the games by Kris Pixton or Everett Kaser (not on Steam). You can play those games for years, and their difficulty starts at 3-5 minutes per puzzle instead of ending there.

When I bought this game I thought I'd get a nice casual puzzle game with different puzzle's. This is the case but the sad part is that it is wrapped in a very very very childish package. So if you want a casual puzzle game, don't get this unless you're 10 years old.

Puzzles are way too easy and there are only a few variatons of each puzzle leaving virtually zero replay value. The drawings for the Photo Hunt are pitiful, reminds me of 90s clipart or Highlights Magazine. Buy this only if you can get it for under 2 dollars and you have a very casual thirst for puzzles, or are just looking to kill some time with a few easy puzzles.

I bought this game because it was on sale and it had achievements. I thought it would be fun to play a puzzle game for once, obviously grabbing some achievements along the way... The game is actually very nice and I am happy with my purchase! Those puzzles are just at a right difficulty in my opinion! I'm terrible at Crosswords and the likes though. :(

Few pros:

Nice variety of puzzles.
Fun.
Addictive.

Few Cons:

Repetitive music.
Fitwords control are a bit buggy.
Not 1080p.
It's quite painfull to collect your rewards after every puzzles.

I really hope i'll be able to 100% this game and if you're looking to complete some puzzles I suggest you try it out, for 560+ puzzles this is a steal at 1$ ( on sale. )

the sodoku mode is only 6x6 there's no replay ability because all the puzzles have one solution and it's as cheap as hell.

it's like they didn't even try.

Puzzler World is the first of the best 2 part game series on the planet, Puzzler World really shows how a good game is made. There are so many FANTASTIC puzzles to choose from and the prizes are unbelievable! This game should be a $60 game because of how deep the campaign mode really gets, and how immersive the game is when your playing it. There is absolutely nothing bad to say about Puzzler World and it should be IGN's #1 game of All-Time. There has never been a game that has made me cry when the campaign ended but this did, [SPOILER ALERT] the fact that Jacob Giancola (the main character) overcomes his addiction to link-a-pix and defeats the evil dragon puzzle was just truly astounding. The way the final cutscene looked was better than watching it happen if it was in real life. There will never be a game so memorable than Puzzler World, besides of course Puzzler World 2 which brings back Christo♥♥♥♥ingidiot to life after he dies in the crossword puzzle section of the first game. I reccomend this game to anyone who loves a very interesting story mode, UNREAL graphics, and perfect controls and gameplay. I give Puzzler World 8/8 m8 and I would indeed play this entire game all over again. There will never be any game created that is as good as this masterpiece, not even Call of Duty. I cant finish this review because of how much I am crying remembering the amazing campaign, so I will end it here. Puzzler World is love. Puzzler World is life.
