HexSaw Zoo is a free Windows 8 Jigsaw Puzzle game in which you need to rearrange pieces of pictures to reconstruct the original picture. The interesting thing about this jigsaw puzzle game is that it contains hexagonal shaped pieces instead of square pieces. Initially the hex pieces are arranged in random order. So start with a jumble and rearrange pieces until the original picture is revealed. The game has amazing sound effects and has great graphics as well.
HexSaw Zoo consists of pictures of animals. Each picture consists of four different sized puzzles: Small, Medium, Large, and Jumbo. The small sized puzzle consists of large hexagonal pieces while jumbo consists of many more smaller hexes in the puzzle.
