Who doesn't like a simple jigsaw puzzle every now and then? There's something wonderfully satisfying about fitting all the pieces together and seeing the end result. There are a handful of jigsaw style games on PlayStation 4, and one of the latest is Glass Masquerade 2: Illusions. This indie puzzler has around 30 stained glass images to rebuild, and instead of your typical jigsaw shapes, you'll construct each one using pointy shards.
You're timed on each puzzle, but there's no penalty for taking your time, meaning you can take things at your own pace. The default difficulty includes red starter pieces to get you going, and automatically rotates pieces for you. If you prefer a stiffer challenge, you can make it so pieces don't orient themselves, which instantly makes things harder. Either way, you'll be arranging pieces together to make a larger image, and that's kind of it.
Completing puzzles unlocks more for you to tackle, and bits of abstruse text will pop up from time to time in an attempt at some sort of narrative. You'll also accumulate Trophies pretty rapidly, with an easily attainable Platinum at the end of it. Really, though, this is nothing more than a highly decorative set of jigsaws. It looks and sounds rather good with its stained glass aesthetic, but gameplay consists of simply moving pieces onto the board until you have the whole picture. That's not necessarily a bad thing, of course; if you're looking for something relaxing to play with no real pressure, this is about as chilled out you can get.
