Follow the tutorial in the game and this will take you through step by step solving one of the simplest puzzles.

This page will take you through the same process, but with some extra information and fewer steps.

 

The screen consists of three main areas.

1.      The top area displays the game / level information

a.      The difficulty level, here it is ‘Easy’. It can be either ‘Easy’, ‘Medium’, ‘Hard’ or ‘Extreme’

b.      The stage, this case is ‘1’, through the game.

c.      The type of game, ‘Tutorial – Follow the steps’. This can be either ‘Classic’, ‘Time Trial’ or ‘Pressure Match’. This is also indicated by the colour of the header background and the button colours

                                                    i.     Classic – Light blue

                                                   ii.     Time Trial – Dark Blue

                                                  iii.     Pressure Match – Purple

2.      The right hand area displays the available numbers / letters or colours that are available to select from. The buttons are colour coded depending on the game type, as described above.

3.      The left hand area displays the puzzle, once started.

Once you press ‘START’, the randomly generated button for this game type / difficulty level and stage will be generated and displayed. Also the time starts running. Increasing for Classic and Time Trial, decreasing for the Pressure Match game.

The button colour for the puzzle depends on the difficulty level.

Easy ( as shown ) is green

Medium is Yellow

Hard is Orange

Extreme is Red

 

Once the game has started, select the numbers you wish to try against the puzzle. Tap on the number from the right hand pane, and it will appear in the first available slot in you guess.

Note that the guess is numbered on the far left, a small ‘1’ in this case.

Continue to select your numbers until the guess is full.

If you try to select ‘GUESS’ before you have selected enough numbers, the guess numbers will flash red’. Select further numbers before ‘GUESS’

If you try and select numbers after the guess is full, the guess numbers will flash green. Either select ‘GUESS’ or remove a number before replacing it.

To replace a number, tap that number again, in this case ‘1’. The number will disappear from the guess area, allowing you to select a replacement

Select the number you wish to place in the guess area, in this case ‘4’

You can change the numbers as many times as you want, just remember that the time is running all the while.

You can tap the ‘PAUSE’ button at any time, but this will hide the puzzle and all of your guesses until you resume play.

Once you are happy with your guess, tap the ’GUESS’ button,

Once you have made your guess the hints / tips and information comparing your guess to the puzzle.

In easy mode:

1.      Black numbers mean that number does not exist at all in the puzzle. Try again with that one!

2.      Numbers that are displayed using the difficulty level colour button ( in this case green ) indicates that the number not only occurs in the puzzle, but is also in the correct position.

3.      Numbers that appear in a green font, but with a game type ( in this case the classic light blue ) indicates the number exists but not in this position.

In Medium mode:

1.      Black numbers mean that number does not exist at all in the puzzle. Try again with that one!

2.      Numbers that are displayed using the difficulty level colour button ( in this case green ) indicates that the number not only occurs in the puzzle, but is also in the correct position.

In Hard and Extreme mode;

1.      None of these indicators are used. See the next section for further information!!

 

The numbers on the right hand side of your guess display the number of ‘hits’ and the number of ‘matches’.

These numbers are all you have to solve the hard and extreme puzzle levels.

The top number displays the number of ‘hits’, the count of guess numbers that exist somewhere in the puzzle.

The bottom number displays the number of ‘matches’, the count of guess numbers that match position exactly.

 

Using these two numbers, and subsequent guess, you can solve the puzzle.
