This was one of my first game attempts with Flash MX while it was still in beta. It is a simple-looking jigsaw-puzzle game that uses dynamic masking to randomly generate the shape of each puzzle-piece mask and also mask a movie clip. The great thing about this jigsaw puzzle is that it can even cut up an animation! Unfortunately, I would consider this a failed test; all of the pieces are generated properly, but the dynamic masking proves to be a huge performance hit. As a result, when dragging pieces around, you experience much visual lag. However, this works perfectly for puzzles with small numbers of pieces (under 20).
