    Mastermind 3DS
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    A version of mastermind for 3DS. IMO it has nice graphics, in a modern style (ios 7/lollipop). Fully functional, the computer generates a random code and you get 7 attempts to crack it. Black pins mean a correct color and correct place, white pins mean correct color but not correct the correct place.

    Works with any version of ninjhax, and should work with ironhax when released.

    Update (8/11/2015):
    Local multiplayer (on same 3DS) player 1 creates code, player 2 tries to crack the code
    Added color option (6,7 or 8 colors)
    If you do not guess the code correctly it will now display the correct code on screen.

    Controls:
    Touch: use on-screen buttons
    up/down: change selected color on bottom screen
    right/left: change selected circle
    a: input attempt

    There is also a fun little secret way to cheat ;)

    Will the correct solution randomly include color duplicates or can there only be one of each color for the solution? Four different colors on that solution and in your example, so I was curious.

    It selects one of the eight colors for each time, thus a possible code would be red-red-red-red, though rather unlikely. The reason for that specific code in the screenshot is due to the fact I was using Citra to make them, Citra always starts the game with time 0, where a actual 3DS would start with whatever time is set on the 3DS. This time is used to seed the random number generator used to generate the code. This is just the first code that will always generate on Citra. For the few Citra players as soon as you generate a new code the random number generator will be seeded again with the time you've been playing so it will be "random" after the first time. Again as osGetTime() is used on a 3DS it will always be "random".

    TLDR: Yes color duplicates are a thing.

    Nice little game for 3DS, some thoughts for a more realistic MasterMind:

    - Can the solution be shown when you don't get it in all given turns?
    - Turns could be set on start, 12, 10, 8 or 6 turns would be awesome (like original Mastermind)
    - Difficult setting:
    * Easy: 4 rows with 6 colors, each row has a different color (Like original MasterMind)
    * Normal: 4 rows with 6 colors and 2,3 or 4 rows can have the same color (Like original MasterMind)
    * Difficult: 5 rows with 8 colors, each row has a different color
    * Very difficult: 5 rows with 8 colors and 2,3,4 or 5 rows can have the same color
    * Hard: 6 rows with 8 colors, each row has a different color
    * Extreme: 6 rows with 8 colors and 2, 3,4,5 or 6 rows can have the same color
    (you can also just say Level 1, to Level 6 instead of easy etc...)

    Optional:
    - 2 player mode (someone sets the color, press hide and give the 3ds to second player)
    - The solution only gets shown if the second player can't figure the code

    I know i can't program :/ , so i just ask!
    I love mastermind and it's great to have it on 3DS as homebrew :)
    Thank you!

    Woah, good job. This is certainly one of the most pleasing to look at homebrew applications for the 3DS. Thanks a lot for this!

    Wow that's a long list...
    Local 2 player mode will be added (as that was my plan from the start already XD)
    The solution getting shown is a good idea, I will have to look into where the correct code is displayed but I will probably figure it out before the next release.
    Difficulties probably won't be in the next update but I will try to add them in a future update (though probably only easy, normal and hard). Currently it's 8 colors where 2,3 or 4 rows can be the same color.

    haha, yeah i know.

    It's just, i like to play it as authentic as possible :)
    easy, normal and hard would be cool even in a future update and not the next :)
    The best update next, would be showing the solution if you don't find it yourself.

    Thanks for your work :)

    Luckily adding that is the easiest XD
    Here is my image for displaying the code:
    [​IMG]
    Next thing is to add little bits of code and that feature is added. Local 2 Player will require a bit more work though...

    - Color option is just what was needed ;)
    - Correct code shown if not guessed is like it should be :)

    Thanks alot, this is great simple gfx homebrew! 1 that should be on everyones (N)3DS!
