Artistic Puzzle game Pixol exceeds expectations!

To find a game that appeals to both my love of puzzles, and my artistic side is a pleasure. To find one that is actually fun is even better. Pixol is a fantastic photo-themed game, that integrates your Instagram Feed photos into clever fast-paced gameplay.

The screenshots do not do this game justice. The concept is easy enough, you are presented with a photograph that has peices missing. One of those peices is shown below, but usually it will be spinning, strobing, or otherwise tricky to see (this also depends on the level of difficultly you have the game set at). Tap the blank circle on the photograph to put the peice in its place. You've got a limited amount of time though, so this takes skill, focus and keep observation skills.

Pixol Instagram Integration 

One of the absolute best features of this app is the ability to sign into your own Instagram account and have the pool of photos come from your friends feed. You can even set it up so it's only photos you've already 'liked'. The seamlessness of having this as a part of the app is one of the most appealing things about Pixol. You can even set it to random, and explore other photographers on Instagram. From within the app you can follow, like or share their pictures, too! It's so smart, I can see them expanding to include other social media sites (Facebook, Tumblr) in the future as in-app upgrades.

Offline Gameplay 

Although one of the best parts of this game is the Instagram integration, there's already built-in 180 offline photos (including 60 animal-themed ones for younger kids) to play whenever, not just online. This is an extremly thoughtful feature, and I must give kudos to the developer for that. High Praise This app has been gaining top reviews both within iTunes and other review sites. Usually I'm a skeptical person who doesn't like to buy into popular opinion, especially when it comes to apps - but I have to say that this one is far and away worth your dollar.
