If you like puzzle games on Roblox, there's a chance you've heard of this game. Mastermind is a rather small puzzle game where you have to guess a color combination of four colors. You have 12 tries to get it right, and if you do, you gain a win, and the game restarts. If you don't, you lose the round and another round starts.
Mastermind is a game created by Jexpler on March eleventh of 2020 (3/11/2020). It's a single-player game that is a remake of a game with the same name and has been visited over three hundred thousand times. The last time it was updated was April seventh of 2020 (4/7/2020). It is also extremely simple in terms of gameplay. In each round, you have four large pegs that you use to guess the color combination. You have seven (7) possible colors for each peg; red, orange, green, blue, purple, black, and pink. Next to those pegs are eight (8) smaller pegs. You are not able to color the smaller pegs, but those pegs tell you information about your guess in that row that helps you solve it after you hit the guess button at the top center of the screen. There are four spaces for red pegs in the front row and four spaces for white pegs in the back row. A red peg means that a color is in the right place while a white peg means a color is there but incorrectly placed. The pegs will not tell you which color is right or not, only that one is right for each peg, and that adds to the challenge this game presents. If your first guess is lucky, you'll have most of the pegs appear either red or white, which makes things easier. If you are not able to complete the combination after 12 times, you lose and have to start over with a new code. It is an exciting, semi-stress inducing but very simple puzzle game that is rather fun!
If you want a different challenge in this game of skill or to compete against other players in this single-player game, then there is something here for you as well! Behind the main platform, there are two leaderboards. Facing towards it, the left one is for wins while the right one is for top donators. The current leader for wins is 761 by Roblox user mittensbk. 4UOT holds the top donator with 3,000 Robux. Each leaderboard has the first one hundred (100) of each category. It is a competitive but straightforward way to keep players playing the game and getting involved or to get players to donate. Plus the creator earns Robux simply from donations!
While the game has many visits, you'll only ever see four or five players on at a time. For such a good game remake, you'd expect more people to play something like this. It is a relatively new game that is never advertised or spoken about much, so it makes sense for player quantity to be lower. For such a cool game, it's a shame it doesn't have more players. It is puzzling but not rage-inducing; it is an excellent way to take a break; it even is slightly competitive!
