Jigsaw Puzzles Free 1.5.5136.20776
Explore more than 3,500 puzzles for free

Jigsaw Puzzles Free is a fun puzzle game with one or two unusual extras.

The program has more than 3,500 picture to choose from, from a wide range of categories (landscapes, animals, film, TV, abstract and more). Choose one of three difficulty levels and the image is split into 9, 25 or 64 pieces. Solving the puzzle is as easy as dragging and dropping matching pieces next to each other, while a clock tracks your progress.

So far, so very normal, but what makes Jigsaw Puzzles Free different is that it's the front end for a web service. You can play it in your browser (if you have the Unity 3D plugin), or on a host of clients. Create a Binary Fortress account and you can submit pictures of your own. You gain "reputation points" for doing this, rating other people's images, adding comments to them, solving puzzles and more, and a "Top Members" chart shows how you're doing compared to other program users.

We had one or two problems while trying Jigsaw Puzzles Free. Individual pieces became noticeably darker when we dropped them into the correct place, for example, a problem when you're trying to match very similar colours. One puzzle stopped responding to our mouse, too, forcing us to reset it and start again.

Jigsaw Puzzles Free generally worked well, though. It has some ads, but they're not too intrusive. And if you need more, a paid-for Jigsaw Puzzles+ version includes an extra "Hard Difficulty Mode", can offer hints if you get stuck, and of course is entirely ad-free. It's yours for $1.99.

Verdict:

It's not too challenging, but Jigsaw Puzzles Free has plenty of images to choose from, and is fun for a few minutes.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
