dispair is a challenging brainteaser, in which it depends on finding out a given order of letters (colours) within a minimum of attempts.
Thereto distance (dis) and neighbourhood (pair) information can be used.
So the solution principle of a dispair brainteaser task is very tight. Therefore regarding the fun of a game dispair can be ranked between Chess and Sudoku. Different from Chess and Sudoku dispair offers additionally spaces for having some luck. So dispair might become a new brainteaser classic.
Please see the dispair games ranking on the Internet.
dispair offers several levels (number of fields for letters/colours) and demands a high degree of combination ability in higher levels (there are no levels 1, 2, and 3):
Level 4: for an easy introduction
Level 5: for a quick success
Level 6: for a rough challenge
Level 7: an exceptional challenge
Level 8: for 'hard core' dispair players
So dispair is considerably more ambitious than comparable games in brainteaser sector.
Experience and intuition grow with the number of played dispair games, comparable to Chess or Sudoku. So you surely have to train diligently, to enjoy the full fun of dispair.
Since version 2.7 especially the two game modes 'beginner's mode' and 'professional mode' are emphasized.
'beginner's mode' allows you to play a game more easily and may be with more fun on basis of arbitrary 'trial and error' attempts.
'professional mode' is for players who like to position themselves to big challenges to get a clear confirmation for their combination abilities and mental concentration power.
Emphasizing the two playing modes explicitly makes dispair since version 2.7 a really well rounded brainteaser with a potential to reach the Chess and Sudoku degree of popularity.
dispair still is available only on Apple devices.
dispair offers a simulation facility for each play variation in 'professional mode'.
During a game a suitability check can be executed for each solution attempt.
Initially dispair 3.4.2 is again a free 'sniff version' (only level 4 can be played, all other levels offered for simulation). Starting with version 2.6 you can buy additional levels for playing.
Starting with version 2.0.0 you can save your game results on the Internet and compare your results with other dispair players. Additionally you can view each listed dispair game optically by clicking the link in a ranking list row (see Marketing URL).
