[prMac.com] Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom - To celebrate Halloween, and the fall season, Lightwood Games has issued a spooky challenge to all Jigsaw Party players; to submit their Halloween or fall/autumn themed photos to be turned into jigsaws for a chance to win a $25 (or equivalent currency) iTunes gift card. Jigsaw Party is the first competitive jigsaw puzzle app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and can be downloaded for free from the App Store so anyone can enter this competition.
Photo submissions can be anything related to Halloween or the fall season, whether it's a cackling jack-o-lantern or beautiful autumn leaves, as long as it's the player's own photo and won't scare the kids! Players can submit their photos through the app, via email to email@example.com or by posting them on the Lightwood Games Forum. Selected photos will then be added to the Halloween category within the picture library of Jigsaw Party. The deadline for submissions is 28th October but there's no need to wait with the Halloween category already filling up fast. The winner will be determined by the highest rated photo on 1st November and will be rewarded with a $25 (or 15) iTunes gift card.
Jigsaw Party, released just one month ago, has already been a huge hit among fans of the genre. The latest update to the game has enhanced playability, with different colour themes, shake to scatter pieces functionality, and the option to hide pieces that are not in use. Players can compete in a real time race with each other by simultaneously doing the same jigsaw puzzle or complete puzzles in the traditional solo mode.
In terms of the jigsaw puzzles themselves, players can choose various puzzles sizes using hundreds of photos in the ever-increasing puzzle library, or use their own photos. Those who prefer a surprise can have a picture selected at random. After completing the jigsaw, players get to rate the picture, and these ratings are used to determine the top rated puzzles, which are free to all Jigsaw Party users. That's in addition to all the Halloween Contest entries, which will also be free to play throughout October, with user ratings determining the eventual winner!
