puzzle games - choose a jigsaw puzzle to solve

Puzzle video games make up a unique genre of video games that emphasize puzzle solving. The types of puzzles can test many problem -solving skills including logic , pattern recognition, sequence solving, and word completion. The player may have unlimited time or infinite attempts to solve a puzzle , or there may be a time limit, or simpler puzzles may be made difficult by having to complete them in real time , as in Tetris. The genre is very broad, but it generally involves some level of abstraction and may make use of colors , shapes, numbers, physics , or complex rules. Unlike many video games , puzzle video games often do make use of "lives" that challenge a player by limiting the number of tries. In puzzle video games , players often try for a high score or to progress to the next level by getting to a certain place or achieving some criteria.
