SAN FRANCISCO, March 02, 2015
Game Developers Conference will take place in San Francisco this week, from the 2nd – 6th of March 2015. The GDC will attract over 24,000 attendees and perhaps this GDC will gather a record number of companies with XIMAD among them. XIMAD is a premium mobile publisher for US and European market mostly known by its flagship game Magic Jigsaw Puzzles.
XIMAD and its partner company XIM will host the 2423 booth where XIMAD will present two of its products: Magic Jigsaw Puzzles and a new one – Star Crusade.
We’ve teamed up with XIMAD, our latest AppAdvice Daily podcast sponsor, in order to offer you a chance to win an expansion pack for their free jigsaw puzzle game for iPad, Magic Jigsaw Puzzles.
This is the ultimate jigsaw puzzle app. It allows you to build big, beautiful jigsaw puzzles on your iPad at home or wherever you go.
The app comes with 20 puzzles to choose from with the ability to install more than 200 jigsaw packs with more than 5,000 images. You’re able to cut the puzzles up into anywhere from 42 to 550 pieces, depending on how seasoned of a builder you are. You can also choose to have the pieces rotated instead of in the proper position to make things even more difficult.
Mention jigsaw puzzles and an immediate mental image comes to mind: a kitchen table with hundreds of pieces scattered or neatly organized into appropriate groups, a big cardboard box displaying the hoped-for finished image, and a lone puzzle warrior steadfastly trudging on.
But like everything else offline, the jigsaw puzzle has gone digital. Many contenders have introduced apps into the market, and have successfully packed the kitchen table and everything on it into a smart phone.
Digital game developer XIMAD has one of the most popular puzzle apps out there. Called Magic Jigsaw Puzzles (MJP), the app currently has close to 9 million unique users and about 500k daily active users, and the base is continually growing. It includes more than 1,000 virtual jigsaws, and players can create and manage accounts, save puzzle bundles, scores, and stats as well as restore previously deleted puzzle packs. Users can also create a puzzle from any image or photo they have.
