SMasterMind for Mac
Puzzle games can be both challenging and amusing: SMasterMind is a small Mac mind teaser that fits the description perfectly. The premise of the game is quite simple: the computer generates a random pattern, and you must use your deduction skills to discover it in less than 16 tries.
Uncomplicated puzzle game that appeals your deduction skills
In the SMasterMind main you will be able to see pegs of different colors, and a game board featuring 4 or 6 slots rows. You must start by arranging the pegs in the slots: when you are satisfied, press the check button to see if any of your choices are correct.
On the left side of each row, SMasterMind proves a control scheme that will show a white peg for each peg that has a correct color but it is placed in the wrong slot, and a black one for each peg that has the right color and it is placed in the correct position.
Increase the puzzle’s difficulty by adding more colors and more complicated patterns
Besides increasing the game board size, you can also add more colors for the pegs (up to 12), and switch to a more complicated algorithm. In beginner mode, the combinations are using only different colored pegs. However, if you switch to normal mode, the puzzle can includes pegs that have the same color.
Lastly, in expert mode, the randomly generated pattern, besides pegs that have the same color, can also include one or more holes. As a result, the game can become quite challenging even for the most experienced players.
Entertaining puzzle game that is featuring simple playing rules
SMasterMind does not rely on complicated settings or rules to keep you interested: the game dynamic is quite simple, which makes it very easy to play. At the same time, finding the correct answers requires a lot of logical thinking, which means that you will get to exercise your brain.
