I think this is the first game of this kind with full screen control.
No one is interested in it?

I have tried a few jigsaw puzzles on iPhone(most free or lite versions only though) and have yet to find one which keeps me or my 3yr old son(basically the same iq both of us ) interested. The problem is that limited size of iPhone screen doesn't allow such games to have any real playability IMO. You are boasting of being the only full screen game of this kind in AppStore. I'd like to see that along with how smooth these pieces move in the game. A video will be very much appreciated here if possible .
