AceCypher is an Addictive Cypher Slide Puzzle Game

Are you ready for a game that will test your logical thinking skills while providing hours of fun? Then you may want to have a look at this awesome cypher slide puzzler! AceCypher is great puzzle game for those times when you only have a few minutes to play or want a fun way to pass the time while relaxing.

The overall premise and style of game play for AceCypher is simple. You move individual rows (left, right) or columns (up, down) one space at a time in order to shift the positions of numbers on the game board through ’round-a-bout’ trading. The goal is to make the four numbers in the red square match the code shown in the upper right corner (including positions).

Sounds simple so far, right? But the challenge comes from the random boards you will be given to work with…some will not be too hard to solve while others will tax your brain (and patience!) quite well.

When you start out it may take a few minutes to get used to moving numbers around to line them up the way you need, but with a little practice and thinking you will quickly see the number of moves required to complete each cypher drop nicely! Here are two examples of starting game boards and their completed versions.

Once you complete a cypher, you will be presented with a brief score screen of sorts. Look at the top for the Code Cracked text and tap on it to return to the Main Start/Entry Screen to play a new round. Good luck and have fun!
