A Fave...and excellent customer service!!
Yes, it's challenging, but it is far from impossible. One of my favorite games. The keyboard doesn't appear on my iPhone 4S. Not a deal breaker, just an FYI. Dials are easy enough to use. Voice recognition capabilities would rock so guesses could be entered simply by speaking. A fun thinking game! UPDATE: Can I give a sixth star for amazing, personal response to a review?! Larry of Obviously Genuine (developer of this great game) contacted me to tell me how to access the keyboard on my iPhone 4S. Simply swipe to the left and the dials magically become a keyboard! (I've become that person I roll my eyes at...the person who complains about something without first reading the instructions! Egad.). Honestly, this was the first time I've ever had a developer personally respond to a review. Thanks, Larry! Top notch game AND service!! Get the game, folks. Why are you still reading?! :)

A new take on an old classic
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I used to spend hours playing Mastermind with my sister and anyone else who might be interested.. Those colored dots were both the source of agony and exhilaration.. The author of this application has taken that classic and breathed new life into it, using letters, rather than colored dots (although the background colors tend to remind me a lot of those dots).. I've owned this app since version 1.0, and the improvements are outstanding and show a lot of well-thought out efforts by the developer. The latest version is no exception, and having the "floating tips" on the iPad app help focus your concentration when you're staring off into space wondering what 6 letter word to guess next. I would give this app 5 stars, and do hope for continued success. I do have one request, which is to be able to skin the UI so that there are times I can escape my youth and not be so distracted by the colors.

Fun, challenging, and educational.
I've been playing this game for quite a while now. Other games get installed-played-uninstalled, but this one stays on the device, outliving all of them. The novice mode gets you well prepared for "classic" games, giving you a solid idea on how words in the English language are composed. Also, it will certainly expand your vocabulary, and the Dictionary feature is indispensable. The gameplay is engaging. Ironclad logical deductions boost your self-esteem, while occasional lucky guesses bring you that "jackpot" sense :-)

Excellent word game! Fresh idea.
I've had this game on my idevices for many years, and I always come back to it. Definitely gets your brain working! Fun game, simple UI, great options for play! No ads or anything annoying. Really well developed! Can be as challenging as you want: Can be incredibly difficult or nearly mindless, it's up to you. Just a truly fine game!

For the logic minded
This is a modern and certainly slicker version of an old game that probably died when Jotto was born. I have enjoyed it for many hours and in a series of e-mails have appreciated the developer's willingness not only to give support but to consider modifications in coming versions. What is now missing but possibly in it's future is the ability to "duel" in real time with an adversary over the Internet with each selecting a secret word chosen to stump the other! It will get my five star rating when that appears.

Update on a classic game
If you played any word games growing up you would love Deduce. My kids like playing it and with the suggest feature they didn’t get stuck thinking of words. It allows you to save games and share them with friends. A fun game to fill a few minutes.

Almost Great
Why can't we just use a keyboard? Why can't we unmark letters by touching them again? Why is it that I can't find the common letter usage info without touching the hint button until it either offers it or runs out of things to tell me without having offered to let me see it? I like this game a lot, but those things are irritating.

Great App for word lovers
This is a challenging and addictive game where you have to guess a six-letter word using only guesses of other valid six-letter words. You only know if you have a letter in the right place... It doesn't tell you if it exists elsewhere in the word... So it is much more challenging than a mastermind type game. I'm completely hooked.

Excellent Game
Great game to pass the time, especially if you love word games. The UI is not super intuitive, but makes sense if you read the instructions. This is a minor complaint though, as the play is engrossing enough that you quickly forget about the UI.

Simple concept and pretty easy to play in a line while waiting. I'd love to see the graphics changed from the purple color splash screen and the main screen background; and the iPad layout optimized a bit more for the space.

More fun than Mastermind and Scrabble
I've been enjoying Deduce more than M and S for the past month! Highly recommend!

It was fun once!
This game used to be fun. It is challenging to come up with 6 letter words. But about a week ago, there came about a glitch that didn't require real words - e.g., a guess of "AAAAAA" would go through - this totally took the challenge out of the game. Now I just updated and that glitch is fixed, but now the switch to allow already discarded letters doesn't work. Come on - it worked fine before and now it is a mess.

To the man I met at Epcot
I don't remember your name, but we talked in the England section in Epcot and you told me you had made a game, so I downloaded it and I love it! So hard but yet challenging and engaging. Thanks for the awesome app! :) -Nathan

A great word game
Really challenging and an exercise for the mind. A prettier interface and the ability to guess 4, 5, and 7 and 8 letter words would make it a five star review.

The game is interesting and challenging. I wish the hints were actually related to the word.

A great game!
I'm not sure what Bzur's problem is, or why he he says "it's a mess", but I'm also a long time user of Deduce, and the iOS 7 version is working just fine and has some fun new features (like Deduce Puzzles and advice from Sherlock). Overall it's a very unique and satisfying game!

Terrible waste of time. I want my money back.
Don't buy this. It takes forever to guess. You must use words to guess and not letters.
