. : The Call for Images

I have a bunch of 3d creations as well as photographs that I'm very excited to display here and I'll bet you've got some too.

If you have an image that you think should be a SlicePuzzle, please let me know.  You can email me your image submissions at and I'll consider adding them.  Please submit images that are exactly 800x600 pixels, some brief text describing the image, a link to your homepage, and I'll do all the rest.

I'll try to update the puzzle on a regular basis.  Depending on the response, it may be monthly or even weekly.

Circus Circus

Circus Circus AdventureDome

If you think this picture looks a little pink, it's because all of that glass is pink! The entire theme park is encased in this pink dome and it baths the inside with the color. If you ever visit Las Vegas with young children then I recommend this theme park because it is great for kids.

Tidepool

This shot was taken August 14, 2004 on Ruby Beach in the great state of Washington. What I like best about this one is how it contains a very good mix of the types of life you will find thriving in tidepools; anemones, starfish, barnacles and radiant sea plants.

. : How Came the Slice Puzzle?

  • Bugs thought about how one designs a page nicely while making it 100% variable via CSS.
  • Bugs also thought about how one designs a page so it is 100% maintainable via MySQL.
  • Bugs asked himself what makes a puzzle playable, intuitive, fun, and attractive to visitors.
  • Bugs then dreamed up Bugimus.com's newest feature but wondered what he should call it.  A Slice Puzzle because Bugs uses Adobe's ImageReady slice feature to easily prepare new puzzles.
  • You have no doubt come across plenty of JavaScript puzzles before.  All of them more or less do the same thing.  Cut the picture into squares and then slide them back in order or drag'n'drop them there.  These are great fun but I wanted to kick the concept up a notch.  Not only are the scrambled slices in my puzzle varied shapes but they are also scrambled in size!  You will need a good eye to recognize the correct locations, especially in the hard difficulty.
  • Background: As any web designer knows, browsers are notoriously bad at resizing images.  Therefore it is a standing rule to always prepare your web images for the exact size you want them to appear on your page.  I got to thinking about how I could transform this limitation into a feature.  So by allowing the browser to resize the slices when they are out of place, I am allowing the distorted image size to beg the player's eyes to restore them to their rightful positions.
