From Werner Freytag:
Master Mind for advancers: The code consists not only of four colors but also of four shapes. It's your job to find the secret code through clever trials and combination.
Set four colors and four shapes in the first row and click Ã????Ã???Ã??Ã?Â«okÃ????Ã???Ã??Ã?Â». On the basis of the valuation you can see what you've guessed right:
- A black pin means a right pair (color and shape) on the right location
- A white pin stands for a right pair on the wrong position
- A blue pin stands for a color OR shape on the correct position, but with an incorrect partner
However you don't know, for which tokens you got the pins!
Based on clever trying and combining of the previous valuations you have in nine more rows the possibility to detect the secret code.
Enjoy the puzzle!
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. Totally addictive variation of Master Mind. If you have mastered the original Master MInd (or Super Brain) and find it too easy to be fun anymore, this adds a layer of difficulty and complexity that makes the game fun again! It takes several attempts to get the hang of the strategies, but even after you do, it remains challenging. Excellent!
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. In my previous comment I mentioned how addictive this game is. Anyhow I couldn't seem to master it, went to the developer site and found a much easier version called Superbrain (without the XXL) and downloaded it. WOW WHAT FUN! I can win over and over - not had so much fun in a long time. The good thing about winning with Superbrain is that I'm getting confidence to go back to this one. Really imaginative well thought out games. And no problem downloading either as disk images.
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. I found this game totally engrossing. I don't understand why some else only gets one color - either an earlier bug or someone without a brain? No crashes yet. But you really need some smarts for this and a love of solving brain teasers that are like a game of clue - this is like a game of clue without the story board, And NO I don't know the author and was not set up - this game deserves all 5 stars for its simplicity and elegance and smartness. THANKS! (I am running it on an Aluminum Powerbook with System 10.3.7.)
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. Tried both Superbrain and Superbraun XXL and only come up with green color. No variation after dozens of tries. Don't waste your time even downloading it!
