IMG Previews Jiggy!
12:58 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

While Mark and Suellen Adams aren't slaving away at their day jobs at Westlake
Interactive
, they are also making shareware titles for Maverick Software.
Jiggy! is the latest creation from the company, combining the classic
puzzle with the adrenaline rush of Tetris. Today IMG posted a preview of the
title, which is due out in the near future for both OS 9 and OS X. Here's a clip
from the article with more info on the game:

Players are shown the original complete picture of a puzzle for a
few seconds, which then turns blank. Individual pieces fall on the right hand side of the
screen, players having to grab them as they fall or from where they've landed and place
them where they belong within the final puzzle. Jiggy! rewards memorization of the
completed puzzle. Jiggy! grants more points if a player can place a piece with few to no
adjoining pieces to hint at where it should go (No adjoining pieces: 500 points, one
adjoining piece: 250 points two adjoining pieces: 150 points, three adjoining pieces: 100
points, four adjoining pieces: 50 points.) A simple premise, the overall result is much more
challenging. The right hand side of the screen allows for only 12 individual pieces to stack
up before the game ends, forcing players to stay on their toes.
Check out the rest of the preview, as well as the Jiggy! web page, for more
details on the game. We'll keep you posted once something is available for download
at Macgamefiles.
