Animated Jigsaws: Japanese Women is a very basic but totally serviceable game. Yes its always fun to do jigsaw puzzles digitally but by now we come to expect certain additions and this game has very little. You cannot do any sort of real customization or variety and for that its a one and done game. Not a lot can really be said outside of it does the jigsaw play but it is all set in stone and you have to unlock new images.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
