Jigsaw Component

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
This is a Flash puzzle game for the Joomla! content management system. This would be suitable for a site aimed at children - or for adults who like puzzles. The component displays images in a selected folder as a jigsaw puzzle. Additional user-created images can easily be added, and a different folder can be specified - it is possible to display multiple versions of the component using different images, with differing difficulty levels. The game requires the Flash plugin to be enabled in the user's browser.

There is a fully flexible layout that can be integrated into any web page, and an unlimited number of pictures can be displayed.

Other features include:

a puzzle timer which posts the user's time scores to a database table.

The puzzle also includes social sharing. Encourage puzzle users to post a link to your site on their Twitter feed or Facebook profile.


The long awaited version 4 of Com Jigsaw is now available, which is compatible with Joomla 3

Very easy to install, setup and have working in less than 5 minutes. Love this addon.

Wishlist: the different shaped puzzle that is what you'd normally see with jigsaw puzzles.

I'm using this component and I really like it. It's fun for members to add their own pictures to be used for jigsaw puzzles. I'm not aware of anything else like this for Joomla. If you want a simple to install and use, and reliable way to have custom puzzles for your site, this is it! It's well worth the fair price.
