Guess 1: blue blue red red. 1 correct color in right place.
Guess 2: blue green green red. 4 correct colors, 2 in wrong place.

Impossible. If the colors in guess 2 were correct, then there would have been 2 correct colors in guess 1.

At this point it's a crapshoot, since all 1296 combinations have already been eliminated.

Guess 3: green blue green red. 4 correct colors, all in wrong place. Ok. Can I at least assume the 2nd and 4th colors are green then?


Guess 4: blue green red green. 4 correct colors, 3 in right place. At this point I'm guessing I can assume there are 2 greens, a single red and a single blue, but it's anyone's guess where they are.

Guess 5: red green blue green. 4 correct colors, 3 in right place. Should I even still be trying?

Guess 6: green green red green. 4 correct colors, 2 in wrong place. So much for being confident of it being 2 greens, a red and a blue.

Guess 7: blue green green green. 4 correct colors, 3 in right place.

Enough. Let's throw in 3 bs guesses for 8-10 and see what it claims the code was....

which is blue green blue green. It should have said 2 correct colors, 1 in wrong place straight from move 1. It should have said 3 correct colors, 1 in wrong place on move 2 instead of claiming all 4 colors were right. Amazingly enough, I had guesses where I had 2 out of 4 colors and it claimed all 4 were right, and there was guess 1 which was 2 out of 4 and it claimed there was only 1 correct, so it's not even just one single bug in the logic, it's at least 2.

Conclusion: Epic fail. The original definition of epic fail: screwing up something simple. This isn't a SMALL error. An occasional inconsistency that might actually add challenge to the game - which would be an interesting idea, a mastermind game where the one who chooses the code acts like a rotten child and lies a little bit here and error. But no, this is a huge whopping error or series of errors that totally ruins the foundational function of the game because calling something 4 out of 4 when it is 2 out of 4 means that the information it provides to the player hardly correlates at all. It might as well be just random guessing.

Nice idea, but full of errors

I found that the object snapping was clumsy, and sometimes a peg would end up floating in the middle of the animated field when I released it, instead of remaining in place on the pegboard.

There are also some errors in the coding, as I got identical, (and impossible) scores by using all blue or all green pegs.

The result showed one peg of the right colour in the right place, and 3 of the right colour in the wrong place. How could this be if all the pegs are the same colour?

moiSTUDIOS responds:

yes, this version is fill of errors.

yay, i beat it

anyhow, its a great idea, but i think u might wanna change it a little

first of all, the fact u have to drag a ball over to the place every time is a bit on the repetative side,

i would, A. make it so when u click it goes in the next available slot B. have it so u can toggle between dragging the ball and just clicking it

also, u should have more music choice, and maybe a sound when u got it right or wrong

good luck with the next one
