Liverpool, UK – 13 th December 2012 - Mobile games publisher, Thumbstar Games, is excited to announce the arrival of JIGaPIX Unlimited’s yuletide partner for all iOS devices.

This is a social jigsaw puzzler with a difference! Create puzzles for friends from your phone, using either traditional jigsaw pieces, or if you fancy a challenge- squares or triangles. Pieces can also be rotated if you’re feeling particularly fiendish! You can use in-game images or any image from your camera roll. As an extra added bonus you can customise any of your images by adding speech bubbles and text. Once you have created your secret puzzle you can email it to another iOS device running JIGaPIX Unlimited for them to complete. Your creation can be saved to your camera roll or posted to Facebook.

JIGaPIX Unlimited is a fun and novel way to send messages and images to friends, with the added fun of in-game puzzles to complete!

JIGaPIX Christmas is a festive update edition of JIGaPIX Unlimited. It has all the usual JIGaPIX features and is packed with Christmas images. With JIGaPIX Christmas you can send puzzling seasonal greetings to friends and loved ones .

JIGaPIX Christmas is released in conjunction with Urbanscan, the renowned developers behind titles such as the Premier Manager series and Bounder’s World . With a series of fantastic titles under both companies’ respective belts, both Thumbstar and Urbanscan look set to release some future classics onto iOS and Android platforms this Christmas and beyond.
