Codebreaker

Created by Jim George of INTelegance Laboratories, Codebreaker is a mastermind game about guessing hidden color patterns. Each guess gives you hints about the code. A red peg means you have a peg of the right color in the right spot; a white indicates right color wrong spot. Use these hints to deduce the answer.



You have 10 guesses to unlock the code. Remember the old-school color code-breaking board game which was invented in the 1970s? Well it's just like that, but much more advanced on the computer!
This 1.1 version is way better than the previous version as a major glitch in the rules system has been fixed. Works for Mac OS X 10.4 or later.

Download the Codebreaker from this Apple.com link.
