Mastermind (Bulls & cows) - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yep. I started coding in the previous millennium.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

To develop an app for wide range of devices.

I started to create programs at school. After graduating I worked 11 years as a teacher at university, teaching various IT-related subjects. Now I am a full-time mobile developer.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

muBarometer, Free42 are good tools, Cards Crawler is a good game.

How long have you been working on this app?

I've been working on this about several months with several interruptions.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

I would like to develop an app for brain training, relaxing, and fun.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

My app provides two unique features:

- daily codes. It's the same code every day which can be solved by all players and players can compare the results
- leaderboards

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

I am going to add some additional challenges to this game.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Please, try my game and write you impression.

Mastermind (Bulls & cows)

About App:

"Mastermind" (or "Bulls and Cows" or "Codebreaker") is a famous logical puzzle game where you need to guess the secret code.

The code is a sequence of colored chips, depending on the settings the secret code can contain 4, 5 or 6 chips. They can be repeated (no more than two chips of the same color for codes with 4 and 5 chips and no more than three chips in the same color for 6 chips codes.)

At each turn, a player tries to guess the color and sequence of chips in the code and receives several hints.
The hints can be white (cow) or black (bull):
> The white hint means that the color of a chip is correct
> The black hint means that the color and the position of some chip are guessed correctly.
> The order of the hints does not matter and does not depend on the order of the chips in the code.
This process continues until the player finds the secret code.

Mastermind features

> Once per day you can try to solve the daily code and compare your results with the results of other breakers.
> The unique features of this variant of the game are saving statistics to Cloud (and restoring on other devices) and global leaderboards.
