CODE, Pearl is a Mastermind/Bulls and Cows type of game.
You are the Codebreaker and your mission is to brake the Codemakers codes (and to become the Codemaster), via the Decoding Board (6 x 6 grid) using the Decoding Palette (below the 6 x 6 grid). With the GO!-button you trigger the Code Validator (small 6 x 6 grid with black, red, & white indicators) that shows you the result of the code on the Decoding Board (as feedback). Use Shake Gesture to set a random code into the Decoding Board.
Code Validator results:
- Black = wrong color.
- Red = right color at the right position.
- White = right color, but the wrong position.
The Codemaker has prepared 500 codes (each code consists of a 6 x 6 grid with up to 6 colors) for you to break (it’s 5 levels of difficulty with 100 codes each). You start at level 1 & code 1, and you break codes on your way up to become The Codemaster.
You get 100 points at the first try, if correct. Else you get -1 point for every wrong try (minimum points is 1 per code broken).
