Hi,

I would highly appreciate your beta tests and feedback of my recently released game - look for "Guess 2D" in the android market. Guess 2D is similar to good old mastermind, but I have added second dimension [shape] on top.

With 4 pieces you get 2^16 (65k) combinations.

All comments are appreciated! I hope you will enjoy the puzzle.

Good mind fitness. My score 12 rounds first attempt. Not easy for new players to learn. Could do with more information on how to play.
Thanks for this.

Could you remove the About and Restart buttons from the screen. Make them accessible via the menu key. Will give more screen space to see the work done on puzzle and will avoid accidental press of restart in the middle of a puzzle.

thanks for feedback
Fair point - I think I will need to add a start screen to make sure new users will see the About button even if they do not press Menu during gameplay. Then I will hide buttons in the game screen. Also I am considering adding another gameboard that will fit 5 pieces [with separate score tracking].

6 tries, played a lot of mastermind years ago.

Suggestion: make a confirm button, don't confirm automatically after fitting last block. It's nice to have a look it everything fits before confirming. This button could reside on the next row i.e.

Great game! Always loved board games, particularly risk and mastermind. This has filled a need for me!

Scores:
Try 1 : 6
Try 2 : 4

I'll give it a break for now

My first post on XDA

I simply dont understand the game...
When i got one black circle in the 1st and 2nd row, then i thought it has to be on the specific place where the black circle appears...
I only have the confirmation that one color and one shape of all 4 is in the right place... quite random info.

Would be easier and more interesting if the black circle appears on the specific place where the right shape/color is.

Or maybe I'm not old enough never heard of mastermind.
Maybe a friendly member got a tip for me how to solve this

It would be too easy Daniel, if the black circle was in the exact spot. You should play some bubble blast first if you find this hard.

Hi Daniel, it will be easier the way you discribed it but I do not think it will be more interesting. This is not an easy puzzle - and its intended to be tough. Check the results from people in this thread - not only its possible to beat Android - also you can do it suprisingly fast.

Hope you will succeed!
