Magic Puzzles: Bikini Girls iPhone Video App Review
Do you feel like your day could use just a bit more jigsaw-puzzling action? Do you also happen to enjoy attractive women in skimpy bathing-suits? If so, then Magic Puzzles: Bikini Girls by developer XIMAD, has everything you’re looking for on the iPad.
At its heart, Magic Puzzles: Bikini Girls iPad app is a jigsaw puzzle game. The iPad app offers solid puzzling mechanics that lend themselves to a surprising amount of depth. For instance, the user is free to choose a puzzle of either forty-two, seventy-two, one-hundred and forty-three, or two-hundred and eighty-eight pieces. A 288 piece jigsaw puzzle is certainly nothing to laugh at, and with the added option to rotate the puzzle pieces, one could easily spend hours spinning, straightening, and arranging bits of the final image. Oh, and the women involved are certainly very attractive!
Perhaps the biggest boon for Magic Puzzles: Bikini Girls is its stellar design. The main puzzle board itself is a pure and simple affair, offering an easy to use sliding array of pieces which can be dragged to the matte-blue puzzle pad. Arranging pieces is as easy as dragging them around the board, and you’re even free to move whole chunks—a useful feature if you’re trying to keep a portion of the puzzle separated from a completed half. Double tapping any puzzle piece will rotate it ninety degrees, which is a smooth and useful mechanic. I also greatly appreciated the addition of an edges button: With a single click, you can filter out all but the edge pieces of the puzzle—a useful feature indeed, as any avid puzzler will know. Magic Puzzles: Bikini Girls’s in-app help file is also mercifully simple, and will help correct any issues you might encounter.
Magic Puzzles: Bikini Girls iPad app does feature adverts. However, the app is currently free in the AppStore as a trade-off. The banner-style ads are hidden along the edge of the board, and are fairly unobtrusive, though the ability to remove them via an in-app purchase would still be appreciated for any heavy user of the app.
At the end of the day, Magic Puzzles: Bikini Girls is a great puzzle iPad app. The interface is solid and very well-designed, and it will please just about any jigsaw-head you know. However, if you’re looking for a solid puzzle app, you may be deterred by the subject matter. If you’re more interested in the women, you may be put-off by the puzzle mechanic. So in a final view, Magic Puzzles: Bikini Girls is free, meaning it’s really up to you to decide what value you take from it.
Magic Puzzles: Bikini Girls iPad app requires iOS 3.2 or later. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
