Mastermind and time
I am a busy grandmother. If time affects scoring then we need a pause button. Game is perfect for me. Older brother introduced me to the game and l have introduced it to my children and grandchildren. I think it is weird to get a high score when all you do is make a lucky guess. I think a higher score should be given because of intellect. I am adding to my review. Why all the ads for Biden? a mastermind has trouble fitting him into the narrative. The democrats do not play fair, their motto, ’ do unto others before they do unto you’. Fair and balanced they are not! What's up with that? Your ads do not interfere with my enjoying the game, it interferes with my conservative views.

I play this game all the time…
…and I have for some years now; it is exciting every time (maybe that says more about me than it does about the game). I *do* wish that the game could track percentages of games won by numbers of guesses; that would be a better indicator of skill, as solving with one row indicates only luck, not skill. I am *not* able to activate the ACHIEVEMENTS section; each achievement is locked. If there’s something I’m missing and anyone can point me in the right direction, I’d appreciate it.

Same game!
This is the same game I used to play with my father when I was a kid! He taught me strategy, that no matter what result you get, no matter how tempted you might be… only change 1 thing in your next guess. If you change 2 variables, you won’t know which to be true. I’m so glad this still exists in the modern world :)

Please lose the hints
I loved the original game, and this is exactly it except for the hints. Actually, having the hints is less bothersome than the pop-up asking me if I want to use them. I just use the hints as soon as I get them to keeps the pop-ups from occurring, but it’d be better to just be able to turn off the pop-ups. I agree with another review that the white and black pegs are the hints. If some people like them, more power to them, but for some pf us, the hints are something we’d rather do without.

What, me forget?
Great game, just like old times. The only issue that I’ve seen so far is that, if you start a game and can’t finish it and you’d like to come back to finish it later, you can’t. The game resets itself and you have to start over with a totally NEW game. Hate wasting all that time in trying to solve, go to work and then try to finish the game when I get home, go into the game and everything that I’ve worked on is gone - it wants you to play a new game - can’t save the game you were working on.

Perfect layout ruined with “Hints”
Perfectly laid out gameplay is constantly ruined with banners. “DO YOU WANT A HINT???” “DON’T YOU NEED A HINT???” “ARE YOU SURE YOU DON’T WANT TO CHEAT AND BUY SOME HINTS???” — The black and white pegs ARE the hints, damnit! — What would be the point at cheating at a logic puzzle? Sheesh! And at the end when you have correctly guessed the colors, instead of just revealing them they put an idiotic “YOU’RE A WINNER” banner on the screen like some ridiculous participation trophy while dimming out the actual goal of seeing the matching colors. Aaarrrhhh! I’d pay them $10 to get rid of this BS and un-ruin the game. 5, because the underlying game is great. But -4 for cluelessly ruining it.

Very Fun
I play when I wake up. It’s a great way to start the brain. Would love to see a feature where it shows consecutive solved - highest in a row and current streak.

Not as good as a version I used to have
This works, and I like the game a lot. I would rate it 3 1/2 stars if I could. It does not track the average number of moves you take to win. To me, that is the essence of the game. Without that, you can’t track your progress. It also tries to turn this into an action game, by assigning points based on a combination of speed and the number of moves you take. Someone who takes their time and figures out how to solve a game in very few moves gets a lower score than someone who guesses quickly and takes more moves to solve it. With that said, I haven’t found a better one that is presently available. (The one I used to have no longer works.)

No Ads
Great game with no ads. Please keep it that way. Easy to use and clean interface. Very nice change of pace to the usual ad infested games. Easy 5 stars to give.

This is the one!
Absolutely the closest to the plastic board and pegs manual game. The one with the seated man and attentively posed woman standing next to him. No double colors or empty spaces, unless you want them. No sound, unless you want it. Lovely. Thanks!

Good Mastermind with flexibility
With the settings you can make the game as difficult as you want. The only thing that I did not love is the brown and black pegs- the original primary colors should be the main beginning colors.

Just 1 issue
The black clue pegs are different enough from the clue peg holes 🕳. It’s visually hard to see the difference and how many black clues you got. Thanks

Remove/move banner after game!!
Once the game is over and you haven't guessed the correct combination, it would sure be nice to review your guesses, but you can't because the 'Sorry, you've lost!' banner takes up most of the screen!!

Scoring rules
Excellent game, only 3 ? First, I'm not sure if a higher score is better or worse than a low one. 2nd, who's high score is it comparing me too. What about a ranking for my best times & my best scores, & difficulty levels? What is the highest score possible if you get it right in one try?

First thing that you'll notice is it seems to load twice. The splash screen comes up, flashes then comes up again. When you press play you're presented with a blank wooden board. No color pegs to choose from. If you press the Mastermind button the game happily tells you you've lost and asks you to try again. Try again and now you get color pegs to choose from. Hurray! I can play now! The controls are very clunky and hard to hit on an iPhone. You press which spot you want the peg in then press the color. You can't drag them. You can press a spot again to remove a color though if you make an error. But here's the funny part... You'll never know if you made an error! The game rules state that after you choose your four colors you then hit the check mark button to submit your guess. It's not even on the playfield! There is no check mark button anywhere. I even tried a few times to press where the rules said it was supposed to be. Nada. I can see the potential here but this is an Alpha build at best! How this got onto the iTunes Store is beyond me.

Great electronic version
I loved the original box version, so finding this electronic version is great. Now when I can't get anyone to play with me, I can use this and challenge my mind.

I agree that this needs a way to place the pegs in any order you want to, not just left to right in order. My biggest peeve is that there is no way to pause or freeze the game if you have to stop or leave it in the middle. If something interrupts you, you lose! I would love this game if those two problems were addressed.

Not flexible
Disappointed that you can only fill in the pegs from left to right. In the real hands on game you can put down pegs in any order. Sometimes I know for sure that pegs 2 & 4 are correct and I want to put them down first and then play around with pegs 1 & 3. This game I have to fill in all the pegs and then go back and remove the ones I want to mull over. I found other apps that let me do this so I will delete this one.

I downloaded, the first time it's blank so u have to lose to move on. Then you finally get color to show up and no check mark. You have to force close to start all over again, try to get it right before putting on market.
