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.

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.

Simple puzzle game with hundreds of puzzles. But, hundreds of the same kind of puzzle, just different variations. Not bad if you're feeling puzzly.

"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

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.

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.

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.

I'd only reccomend this game if one like lots of the same type of puzzles. There are more than 1000 puzzles but many are just different version of the same kind, like crosswords. Further, I had an annoying problem with the game crashing when run in a window (but not in full screen) under Windows 7. Lastly, note that this game and Puzzler 2 are very different. Overall, it works as advertised but I wish it had more of the puzzles I like (spot the difference) and less of the ones I don't like (like such a sodoku.)

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!

"What is Puzzler World?" A bunch of pretty fun, but also pretty standard puzzles, for 5 bucks. "What is Puzzler World not?" Anything else. So don't expect it. You like puzzles? Good. Get this game. You don't? Then don't.

This game is not perfect, but it is worth having if you enjoy puzzles.

Pros: There is a good variety of puzzles (word search, crossword, link-a-pix, codeword, sudoku, spot the difference, fitword, silhouette, and some smaller "bonus" games). There is support for multiple languages, treating British and American English as two different languages - and they should, for a game like this. I accidentally tried the British one at first and had a terrible time at the crossword. Then I switched to American and the crossword got MUCH easier. If you're not worried about full completion of the game, you can skip as far ahead as you want - all content is open right from the start of the challenge mode. And there is a lot of content - over 1200 puzzles in total.

Cons: The difficulty progression is very slow. In the beginning, the puzzles are tediously easy. Hardcore puzzlers will be a bit annoyed at having to slog through the beginning, before the puzzles get hard enough to be really interesting. The proper order of operations is not followed in the "equate" bonus puzzles (they don't do multiplication/division before addition/subtraction like they should), but this is easy enough to get used to. The silhouette "puzzles" are really not puzzles at all. Switching languages means you have to start the whole challenge mode over. Puzzles are not randomly generated and once you've solved one, there is no replay value. Too many hint tokens are given, removing some of the challenge from harder puzzles.

This game is particularly well-suited to younger puzzlers, since the slow increase in difficulty and ease of the starting puzzles make it very comfortable to get started and train your logic brain. However, I don't regret my purchase, despite the tedious easy beginning of the game. I've spent a few fun hours on it and I look forward to a quick crossword or link-a-pix each morning to get my brain started.

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.

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.
