This board game is a mobile and tablet version of one of the most famous classical board games. Mastermind is also known as Master Mind and the modern Mastermind board game version with pegs and pins was invented by an Israeli named Mordecai Meirowitz in 1970. The logics and Mastermind game rules are very similar to an earlier invented mind game called Bulls and Cows that was played with a pencil on paper.
*** Game Rules ***
Mastermind is a mind game that is played on a decoding board with a shield covering four colored pins, the goal is to guess the code and recreate the hidden row in this board game. Below the shield, there are eight horizontal rows where the player, code breaker is able to guess the color and placing of the covered pins. On the right side of each horizontal row there are holes for pegs where the software will provide feedback for the code breaker after every attempt made to guess the code:
black peg indicates right color pin in right place
white peg indicates right color pin in wrong place
no peg indicates wrong color and place
The code breaker only gets one peg for every covered color that they guess right. If there are two pins of the same
color hidden behind the shield, and the player guess that there are three pins of that same color, the player can still
only get two pegs indicating right color.
Once the feedback has been provided the code breaker has a new attempt to guess the color/placing and break the code, with the help of the feedback and logical thinking.
As the numbers of rows indicate you only have eight attempts to guess the code you will be awarded points when you guess the color right and extra bonus points when you crack the code. Extra points are also awarded if you break the code in an early stage of this logic game.
Good game! I like that it’s just like the original board game. Unfortunately many of my plays have crashed forcing me to quit one in three or four games. I can’t replace or move a peg once placed. This pretty much ruins the game because the only fix is to delete the app & reinstall. Other than that it’s perfect so I hope this gets fixed!

Once you put legs in there is no way to change the color or remove. Directions say you can but I am not able to select a peg to change.

I played the original master mine for years and I started playing your app online. You do have a problem with scoring certain row. If you were hiding a green green yellow yellow combination and the player sets up a green green white yellow you score them only three black pegs where the scoring should be three black pegs and one white out of position peg.the second yellow peg that’s hidden does not match the white but it has another ball matching out of position so you should get four pegs. You have to look at every hidden peg one by one and see if it was matched by the player directly or indirectly. Three balls were match directly and that second yellow ball was matched in directly thus four pegs not three. It took us several hours to figure out the scoring from the original game when it was first put out about 30 years ago.

By easy you would expect 4 different colors but it isn’t so. The east level is very difficult.

...so long as the leaderboard is not artificially manipulated. I started playing Mastermind 42 years ago in college. It was a welcome break from studies for me and my college roommates. And it helped keep our analytical minds sharp. Today, I play it daily, and find that it keeps my mind occupied in retirement. My only concern with this app is that I’ve noticed that a few “players” happen to miraculously jump several poItons overnight on the leaderboard. Perhaps this is real, but o find it very difficult for any person to advance more than 300,000 points so rapidly. I will continue to play so long as I don’t see such unusual behavior in the future. Should I see it again, this review could certainly change.......
