The Music Puzzle is a computer game for tablets and smartphones using sounds for the gameplay. Just like an original picture is reconstructed from pieces with jigsaw puzzle, an original sound is reconstructed from musical segments with Music Puzzle. Each segment is distorted by shifting the pitch and equalization. To finish the game, the user listens to each segment visualized as pieces on the screen, reorders them, and corrects their pitch and equalization. The game has a possibility for deaf and hard of hearing people to improve their residual hearing ability since the observation shows their concentrating the game with sounds and preference for music.
