Mastermind Pro – Code Breaker is similar to the classic board game you may remember, originating in the 1970s. This was a two-player game in which one person was the code maker and the other was the code breaker. It involved colored pegs and making changes to decode the color sequence for a win.
In this digital version, you can play alone or challenge a friend in Game Center. There are Classic, Timed, and Sequenced game modes. Here are the basics for those unfamiliar with gameplay:
You have six color options and four slots. You begin by entering colors into the slots for the first group of four. You will then be given hints as to your choices. You can receive yellow for a correct color somewhere within the four slots or green for a correct color and in the right location within the slots. After receiving your hints, move forward to another try by selecting your next colors and their locations. The goal is to break the sequence code with the right four colors in the correct slots within eight tries.
Here is an observation on gameplay for Mastermind Pro. The hint locations do not necessarily correlate to the color locations. For example, you may have a green light in the first hint spot, but that does not necessarily mean you have the correct color in that first spot. It just means you have a color in a correct spot somewhere.
There are both free and paid versions of Mastermind Pro – Code Breaker on the App Store. The Mastermind Pro Premium version removes the ads and offers more game mode features for $0.99. Both are designed for iPhone and iPad.
