Have been programming games again, and composed new and original music for this deviation! Also notice my new sliding panel tab at the upper left corner - it contains my brand new slider controls I created last night! ^___^

In this game, you have to find out the 4 secret colors to solve the puzzle, and you are given 8 tries to get it done! The puzzle will pick 4 out of 6 colors to create the secret color code. You start by placing any 4 colors on the board, and the game gives you white and black dots in return. They work like this:

* White dots: each means a right color at the wrong position.
* Black dots: each means a right color at the right position.
* Blank dots: each means a wrong color was picked.

On your next round (up to 8), you will try to get as many black dots as possible. When you get 4 black dots, you have solved the puzzle and won the game! :D

Example-1. You get 2 white dots: change 2 of the colors and also change the position of the remaining ones.

Example-2. You get 3 whites and 1 black dot: having any 4 dots means you already figured all the right colors, and now just need to find out their right order. One is already there, so keep one in place and swap the position of all other 3.

Example-3. You get 1 white and 1 black dot: keep one color in position, swap the position of 1 color and replace 2 of the colors.

The more rounds you try, the more information you have to correlate the previous rounds and deduce the secret color code!

I created *everything* in this deviation from scratch, from AS3 programming, the graphics, the game controls, and the music. Have been debugging this game for a couple of days now, and I think it is pretty stable by now. Please let me know if you find any bugs. :)

Hope you like it and thanks for coming by!

I always loved Mastermind really was quite a fun game. Though the time in this one adds a whole new challenge. Great job i love it :D

Thank you! This game was inspired by my real life mini-mastermind game set, which is small and easy to carry. I have been a fan of mastermind since I was a kid. For this e-version, I made the placing the colors idiot-proof! :D

PLEASE make a preloader!

It **DOES** have a pre-loader, but the file is too small for you see it working - only 300Kb. Anyway, the game is more fun than the preloader. ;p
