Art Deco, stained glass, art from around the world, relaxing puzzles at your own pace. If any or all of that seems appealing to you, you should definitely try Glass Masquerade! It is a beautiful and relaxing (yet engaging!) puzzle game for true art fans.
Each puzzle is presented as a clock that needs to be filled in with the puzzle pieces that are given in a circle around the clock.
The game slowly (or quickly - depends on how fast you go through the puzzles) takes you from one piece of art to another and all of them represent a country. They show you a piece of stained glass art from 20th-century artisans. All of the art and the game itself is done in art deco style. Though the artists and the artwork have different origins, the colors of the puzzles seem to be altered and look very much alike. They are usually yellow, red, orange, purple, and green.
Each puzzle is presented as a clock that needs to be filled in with the puzzle pieces that are given in a circle around the clock. You can see all the pieces at once and no wait till you finish one group to get another one. There are several 'hints', though. These are marked pieces that find their place on the clock if you click on them.
You don't have to use that feature if you don't want to and turn it off in the settings. As you place the puzzle pieces onto the face of the clock, you can see how much time it takes you to complete each puzzle. The hands of the clocks are moving counting time. It is mainly informational because you don't have to watch your time here for any reason. But if you actually want to add some challenge to the game, you can. You can set the difficulty level from 1 to 5 at the beginning of each puzzle.
Glass Masquerade is a puzzle game that takes you through the art pieces of 25 countries. Pleasant to the eye and relaxing for the brain!
