Cracker is a game where you attempt to crack a safe in the least amount of time possible. You are presented with a safe combination dial and using your finger, you dial your guess just like a real combination safe.
To make it a little easier for you, after each guess there are onscreen hints which give you an indication how close you are to cracking the safe.
Global best times are fully supported via OpenFeint so you can show the world your safe cracking skills.
Combinations from 3 to 6 numbers are supported to increase the challenge.
Fun for all ages....
Very good...and Very hard
I've really enjoyed this puzzler but it does have a bit of a learning curve and is even tough after you learn it. It's basically a stylized guessing game where you try and crack the combination of a 3+ combo lock. The dial gives you a directional clue along with a color-coded range where the number lies. Your job is to narrow down the ranges until you find the exact 3, 4, 5, or 6 number combination. It's deceptive in it's simplicity but I would encourage the devs to maybe include a tutorial or better help page to get players involved, I found it tough at first to play. My only other complaint is that it appears to not register the number guesses at times and I had to re-dial them before getting a lock, maybe it was just me but it did seem to happen a few times. Other than that, a solid puzzle game for those who enjoy a real challenge. It's unique and well implemented with the onscreen clues and worthy of your consideration.
Prepare Yourself For A Challenge
This game is no walk in the park. It's quite challenging and can get incredibly frustrating. Luckily, it's my kind of game, so I can tolerate the difficulty. Definitely a great safe-cracking game... The difficulty makes it feel somewhat more realistic, and the ability to choose a higher number of numbers in the combination definitely adds a lot. For the price, definitely worth a purchase if you're into this kind of thing.
If you enjoy complex guess and check puzzles click buy now whenever you get a chance. This game is challenging and may not appeal to beginner puzzle solvers although it has an original idea and is really fun. I found the bug someone else who reviewed talked about but apart from that this is one of the better iphone puzzle games.
