Mandie Manzano’s Stained Glass Paintings Come to Life in Mandie Manzano Jigsaw Puzzle Art
Now available for free on iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch
GRANADA, Spain — May 18, 2016 — Mandie Manzano Jigsaw Puzzle Art has arrived on the App Store! Featuring 40 striking Mandie Manzano paintings lovingly converted into Ultra HD puzzles ranging from 12 to 2,000 pieces, Mandie Manzano Jigsaw Puzzle Art expertly delivers a streamlined, high-end jigsaw puzzle challenge for players of all ages.
Developed by talented Spanish outfit Octo Mini, Mandie Manzano Jigsaw Puzzle Art offers iOS gamers the most authentic jigsaw puzzle experience currently available on mobile devices. Puzzle pieces remain sharp even after players zoom in all the way (thanks to the Ultra HD resolution), and stepless controls are also included — making it easy to get the brightness “just right” on those bright smartphone and tablet touchscreens. Each piece is also fitted with interactive shading and shadows that can be turned on (or off) by players; choosing between a “flat” or three-dimensional look is just a tap away!
“I went to school to seek a career in the arts. One year, I became very ill and all I could do was lay down on my sofa and paint and draw,” says Mandie Manzano, creator of all the stained glass paintings in the game. “So that is all I did. I was painting and drawing from morning until night. Then one day I started sharing my artwork on social media — and to my surprise, people started responding, sharing, and loving the work that I did! It changed my life forever.”
“We’ve worked hard to do justice to Mandie’s beautiful paintings,” says Antti Lehtinen, owner and lead developer at Octo Mini. “To keep the focus on the art, we made sure the interface was really responsive and aesthetically pleasing in its own way. Players can look forward to a pleasant, high-end experience solving each one of the game’s 40 different jigsaw puzzles in Ultra HD resolution — which is a treat in itself!”
