Ultimate Puzzles Dogs 3:
Dogs-002

Dogs-006
In Brief:
Ultimate Puzzles Dogs 3 is another of those simple 4x 4 square piece puzzles from Uniden, that are great for the youngsters, but really very easy for adults to complete. It shouldn't take more than a few minutes at the most to complete each of the seven jigsaw puzzles provided. We've had several of these from Uniden via Falcoware games; for example Christmas, Ultimate Puzzles Cats 1, 2 & 3 Dogs 1 & 2, Marine Life 1 & 2, Animals 4, 5 & 6, Cars Collection, Puzzles Collection, United Kingdom, USA, France & Italy etc. All have similar mechanics and are 4x 4 grid puzzles with square pieces.

You can see a video of game play HERE.
Introduction:
Ultimate Puzzles Dogs 3 is a continuation of the puzzle collections about different dogs. Choose the puzzle and put it forward. Each puzzle is 4x4 in size, but the complication is that the puzzles need to be rotated in the right direction.

The Game:
Each of the seven puzzles are made up of 16 square pieces. which are placed on a 4 x 4 grid i.e. 16 pieces. Most of the pieces are not oriented correctly, so you have to change their orientation by clicking on the piece with the left mouse button. Each click turns the piece clockwise 90 degrees; you can't turn them anti clockwise. To place a piece on the board use the left mouse button, grab then move to the grid section you think it belongs on. If it is correct it will lock in place; if it's the wrong place or you've not got the correct orientation it will move to a random place on the periphery of the jigsaws grid. The addition of rotating the pieces and also placing them in different places each time you attempt to complete the puzzle adds to the difficulty slightly. Also, some pieces will overlap at the start of each attempt and in some cases totally obscure one or more pieces. You can restart any of the puzzles at any time by clicking on the back arrow. Each puzzle is timed, but no scores are recorded when you've completed the puzzle. Once completed you can either try again or return to the main page where you can then select another image to solve.

The puzzles include cute (and weird, e.g. the biker dog) images of dogs.

Conclusion:
All the puzzles are relatively simple. An adult could easily complete the whole game in around 15 to 20 minutes at the very least. Personally, I think the developer's asking price over on Itch.io, of $5 per puzzle game is well over-priced considering there are only seven puzzle images to solve and each puzzle is only a small 4 x 4 grid with 16 simple pieces. If all of the series were to be combined, it would seem a fairer price. That said, there are 'free' jigsaw programs available online that in my opinion are far better than today's jigsaw puzzle; (okay it's free today)...

Notes on Security

I scanned a zipped copy of the installed game using Virus Total and it found 1 hit (Antiy-AVL) from 59 antimalware engines. I've only see this one yesterday before when we were given the Ultimate Puzzles: Cats 3. All the better known and more reliable antimalware engines have given it a clean bill of health so, it's very likely to be a false positive.

The downloaded executable 'may' include some low level adware that only opens your browser 'once' to Falcoware's home page after the game has installed and also places four shortcuts onto your desktop (which can be safely deleted once the game has been installed).

The installation DOES NOT inject any malware into your system. When your browser is opened to Falcoware's home page following the games installation, it earns Falcoware games some money, part of which is given to the developer of the game for allowing the game to be given away free. Once you've installed the game, there are no more browser redirections. This is because Falcoware removed their installer over a year ago (that installer would show an advert for a game and then open your browser each time you played and then closed the game down.)

You can see the results of the scan via the following link:

Whiterabbit-uk,

Other Free Games:
Please check Delenn's threads over in the giveaway forums HERE and HERE for the latest non Steam and Steam freebies; it's kept up to date frequently, whenever there's a free game becomes available (thanks for keeping this up to date Delenn, very much appreciated).

Also for the latest Steam sales check THIS Steam database site out. You can list the games in 'price' & 'percentage off' by clicking the headers. If you link SteamDB with your Steam account, all games that you already have will be highlighted in green and those in blue are on your wish list. When there are Steam games being given away, you'll see the percentage off as 100%. It's worth checking this regularly to make sure you don't miss those fantastic deals and freebies. Delenn usually posts links to all free games within several hours of them going live, so check her links at the top of this comment as well.

Don't forget to check Indie Gala's freebie section HERE, then click on the Showcase header, selecting freebies from the drop down menu; recent additions include Garfield Kart (a family oriented racing game with cartoon like graphics), Pixel Puzzles 2: Christmas ( a traditional style jigsaw puzzle game), North (asylum seeker game), Nostradamus the Last Prophecy, (a point and click mystery adventure), Snowball (A more "discovery-based" approach to pinball. Learn the secret rules of the board to access hard to reach places and rack up HUGE SCORE BONUSES, which are generally agreed to be more important than any other current event in the real world) and the full version of Die Young (you play as Nehir, a field agent of a well-known political party. The party's agenda is to deconstruct and eliminate Brother n.1, the leader of Island's community); we were previously given the prologue version, (which is still available free) Recent games such as Distortions, Dino Run DX, Cheap Golf, Kill Em All, Dead Hungry Diner and Contract with the Devil have now been removed. All remaining freebies can be found in the showcase section (around 100 are available). Not all games that go into the showcase remain free and are removed after a short period; so, you should grab them as soon as you can.


This weeks Epic freebies are a trilogy of Tomb Raider games that when not on sale would cost you upwards of £120. Two of the games are heavily discounted at 90% and 85% during the Steam sale, which ends tomorrow afternoon 6pm UK time 1pm Eastern time (if you prefer Steam versions).

Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration - (75% off on Steam) - Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration includes the base game and Season Pass featuring all-new content. Explore Croft Manor in the new “Blood Ties” story, then defend it against a zombie invasion in “Lara’s Nightmare”.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition - (85% off on Steam) - In Shadow of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition experience the final chapter of Lara’s origin as she is forged into the Tomb Raider she is destined to be. Combining the base game, all seven DLC challenge tombs, as well as all downloadable weapons, outfits, and skills, Shadow of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition is the ultimate way to experience Lara’s defining moment.
Tomb Raider GOTY - (90% off on Steam) - Tomb Raider is a critically acclaimed action adventure that explores the intense and gritty origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from a young woman to a hardened survivor. Armed only with raw instincts and the ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, Lara must fight to unravel the dark history of a forgotten island to escape its relentless hold. The Game of the Year edition includes the Tomb of the Lost Adventurer, 6 single player outfits for Lara and 4 characters.

These three excellent games that include all of the original expansions and DLC's will be available until the 6th January, when a new game will be offered called Gods Will Fall - Experience the trials of 8 warriors in their plight to sever the gods’ grip on humanity as you take on legions of beasts in each of the gods’ realms.
The best Indie Bundles sites that have been operating from around 2011 are the Humble Bundle and Indie Gala sites (though the latter isn't as good as it used to be) where you'll sometimes find decent bundles with over 90% off the usual price of the games included in the bundles. The Humble site is in my opinion the best. A more recent addition that is worth checking out are the Fanatical bundles (that used to be called Bundle Stars) that you can find HERE.

There are two games free over on Good Old Games (GOG) at the moment. I don't know when the first one ends, but the second one ends tomorrow afternoon 2pm UK/9am Eastern time. i.e.
Cave Story®'s Secret Santa is still available free over on GOG; when I first posted this almost two weeks ago, it wasn't actually available; you will need to revisit the page to claim the game if you tried grabbing it then, but wasn't able to).


Also available free via GOG (until Wed 2pm UK time/9am Eastern time) is Iratus Lord of the Dead a turn-based tactical roguelike RPG set in a dark fantasy universe. Lead an army of undead to help an angry necromancer in his quest to reach the surface world and bring death to the mortal realms! Oddly, I was about to purchase this over on Steam last night, but decided to wait for another time. Now it's free Yeah! :) There is an expansion available called Wrath of the Necromancer as well as some DLC skins, but those are not free.
