Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

Are you a wizard of logic? A master of deductive reasoning? Then Code Breaker is the puzzle game for you!

A puzzle game that is at once both simple and deep, Code Breaker offers hours of free entertainment appropriate for all ages. The objective is to break the Code, set by either the computer or your friend, by correctly guessing it before you run out of turns.

What makes Code Breaker different from other games like this on the market is our huge amount of customizable features. These include:

* 1p and 2p Play versus the computer, or let your friend set the Code to Break!
* 4 Difficulty Levels You can play Easy, Medium, or Hard, based on the number of empty slots and the number of possible colors that can comprise the Code. Or, make a completely custom game, and set those numbers directly yourself!
* Stat Tracking Code Breaker keeps track of how well you do on the different difficulty levels, giving you goals to improve on over time.
* Attractive Backgrounds Most other games are plain, and have very basic graphics. Code Breaker offers the choice of several different, attractive backgrounds.

How It Works:

The basic premise of Code Breaker is simple, but the mechanism is elegant, unique, and fun in execution. Bearing a conceptual similarity to games of elimination such as Twenty Questions or Hangman, the game works as follows:

1. A Code is set, by the computer or by another human, consisting of a variety of colored pegs in a particular order.
2. The number of pegs which make up the Code is determined by the difficulty setting, and the option configuration.
3. You then proceed to make guesses as to what the Code may be, and then refine them using deductive logic basic on the reporting system.

So download Code Breakers today, and experience one of the best puzzle games on the market.

Have fun and stretch your brain at the same time, break your own records, and go head-to-head against your friends to determine who the true mastermind is!

    This game is not working correctly. DO NOT BUY!!! When you play against the computer without customizing it gives you the wromg information as to whether you have the correct color in the correct hole. Also it sometimes doesn't pick up when you have the correct code. Pixel has to fix this game, before I will play it again. It is very frustrating when you see you had had the correct code and the app did not pick up on it. It has the potential to be a fun and challenging game if and when Pixel fixes it.

    This is a cool game if you like logic problems.  You have to fig

    This is a cool game if you like logic problems.  You have to figure out the color code.  There are  little dots on the left hand side.if its a light dot that means you have a correct color but in the wrong position, if you have a correct color in the correct position its a black dot., or if there is nothing in the dot then you have a color that doesn't belong.  I made the mistake of thinking the dots lined up with the colors but they don't. That would make it way to easy!  there is an easy, medium and  hard.  You can customize the colors in your code.  You can also change your background colors.  This is a great game to keep your mind in shape!

    Great game!

    One morning I woke up, remembering playing a game called Mastermind when I was a child. I went online to search for a digital version of it for my Nook and this was the first one I came across.

    I had forgotten how challenging solving this game could be sometimes, but that is all part of the game. Code Breaker is so engaging that I could not put the Nook down for more than an hour. I have not tried the multi-player option yet, as I want to get good at this game again before I play with someone else.

    A great option is choosing the difficulty level. This means the game is great for kids and adults. I am planning to try the game out with my almost 5 year old tomorrow.

    Code breaker

    This game can be fun but it does not give you the correct setting of your pegs in order for you to solve the code. The game needs to be updated or something.

    This game is fun and challenging and works fine, as long as you

    This game is fun and challenging and works fine, as long as you read the directions.  You have to use logic and reason to figure out what order the colored pegs go into the holes.  You can play against the game or you can play with your friends and take turns coming up with combinations to solve.  The holes to the left do not necessarily correspond with the holes on the right where you are working to solve the puzzle.  There are different levels of difficulty that you can play.  I started with the easy level until I got the hang of the logic behind the game.  You can also make the game harder by choosing to allow duplicate colors or an empty slot in your game but I didn’t because the game is challenging enough for me.  If you enjoy games that require logic and concentration, you will enjoy this game.

    Quality Adaptation of the Classic Game

    I was hesitant to get this because of the poor reviews it was given, but, upon examination, I find this to be an excellent game. It's easy to use, works very well (I have encountered one freeze, but so far the only app that has not generated a freeze of some sort for me is Office Mobile, and that's $16. The background music is soothing, the design smooth and aesthetic. Different difficulty levels allow for players of different skill to play without stress, and custom play allows for a personal touch. I would get this app any time.

    This game is fun, fun, fun. :)

    This game is amazing. It’s so much fun to play and has so many different configurations to play that it can be entertaining for hours. The colors are vibrant and add a certain “look” overall to the game in general. With so many difficulty levels you can start from a beginner level and work your way up to more advanced levels. Whether you’re an adult or child this game can be for you. My children loved the game as well and we have been playing it nonstop. I love the logic behind the game and see it as a great way to sharpen up your brain’s skills while having fun. I definitely recommend this game to anyone who wants something that is both entertaining and stimulating.

    Makes you think with logic

    I really enjoy this game, because you have to use logic to get the right answer in as few tries as possible.

    I really like this game. It's challenging. Is it easy? I would rather think that I am just clever! I'm happy that I purchased it, I have spent lots of time playing it.

    .

    I've always liked this type of game. This version works fine, but it is a bit slow loading. Switching between screens there is a lag, but once playing, there's no problem.
