I've got to give it to them, the graphics and sounds are wonderfully relaxing. The background images are just plain beautiful. They're still shots of the actual rainforest (or at least I'm assuming it's the real rainforest). Some of the puzzles only take up the bottom half of the board, so you've got the whole top screen to just stare at the beautiful images. Some puzzles take up both halves, but even then, the scenery is incorporated into the game in ways like the pieces are flowing down a waterfall.
The background music is equally relaxing. I seriously considered leaving the headphones on and letting it put me to sleep for the night. Not that it's so boring that you'll fall asleep instantly. They just made good on the promise to relax you. As an added bonus, you can go download six of the tracks from the game. The directions to do so are at the end of the instructions in the manual. They are really wonderful for listening to while relaxing!
