KPuzzle is a jigsaw puzzle game for the KDE environment. The current version is based on KDE 3 and QT 3, so it should work with every minor release of KDE 3 and QT 3. There are no dependencies on other libraries or programs.

KPuzzle allows various ways of playing the game, as well as various difficulty levels. You can use the pictures delivered with KPuzzle, but you may play with every picture you wish, of course.

Furthermore, there are some picture sets which you can download separately.

Here are some key features of "KPuzzle":
Possibility of using every picture without restrictions
Full saving/loading support
Internationalization/localization support
Various types of playing and various levels of difficulty

KPuzzle allows you five game type settings:

Standard: There is nothing special about it, just solve the game before your time runs out.
Piece-Time: You have a certain time to position every piece. When the time runs out for this piece, it will not be shown in the piece list any more, and you will not be able to finish the game.
Faults-Count: You have only got a certain number of trials to position your piece. When the counter of tolerated faults for one piece has reached zero, the piece will no more appear in the piece list (as above).
Global-Faults: There exists a global counter of the faults you have made.
Unbearable: You have got a certain time to put any piece at its position, but the piece shown changes automatically! Every not-yet-placed piece will appear a certain number of times (which depends on the overall difficulty setting).

KPuzzle is delivered with various pictures and photos, but you are strongly encouraged to use every picture you like.

What's New in This Release:
KPuzzle now works with KDE 3, minor bugfixes
