What is a cryptogram?
A cryptogram is a block of text that has been encrypted using a "substitution cipher". In a substitution cipher, each letter is replaced with a different one.
All letters A are changed to the letter Q.
All letters B are changed to the letter R.
This mapping of letters is different for each game.
Using patterns, letter frequencies, and common sense you attempt to determine the letter for which each of the encrypted letters stands.
The application provides several features to help you if you get stuck.
- On-Screen Navigation - Use the on-screen directional arrows to move around. Helpful if you don't have a d-pad or trackball.
- Pressing Space or Delete will clear the current letter.
- Save Game - You can save your game and come back to it if you need a break.
- Show/Hide Source - The source of the quote/text block is hidden by default. This hint will expose the source for you and hide it again to open up more screen space.
- Show Letter - When you really get stuck, this will expose the letter of your choice in the cryptogram.
- Show Puzzle - When all hope is lost, this will show you the answer to the puzzle you've been working on.
- Letter Frequency Table - Shows you the number of times a coded letter appears in the text.
- Unused Letters - Shows a list of the letters that have not yet been used in the puzzle solution.
- Showing Duplicates - Duplicate letters are shown as italicized. So, if you enter the same letter for two different codes, Enigma will show all occurrences of that entered letter italicized.
- If you complete the puzzle without using the "Show Puzzle" option, you will be given the opportunity to email the quote to yourself or someone else.
Enigma can be customized to your personal tastes by choosing the Preferences menu item and selecting the appropriate options.
Select from different color schemes. Feel free to contact me with suggestions for more.
- Original - Reminiscent of the old green screen monitors.
- The Blues - Blue is the basis of this color scheme.
- Scarlet Letters - Deep reds make this a pleasing choice.
Select from different Font sizes. This can be very helpful on tablets where you might want the puzzle to take up more room and be easier to manage.
- Small - Useful for smaller devices.
- Medium - The original size and still the default.
- Large - Tablets will work well with this or the next size up.
- Extra-Large - Tablets will work well with this or the next size down.
Next Letter Preference
After entering a letter the focus will change based on your choice from the following options:
- Don't advance to the next letter. (Current/Default Behavior)
- Advance to the next letter.*
- Advance to the next empty letter.*
* When at the end of the puzzle, it won't wrap to the beginning.
Select from different keyboard styles.
- Normal Keyboard - This is the traditional QWERTY keyboard.
- Gallery Keyboard - The Gallery Keyboard works by listing the letters in a gallery display such that you fling them left or right to choose the letter you want to place.

Предлагаем вашему вниманию игру Crypto Puzzle в которой ваша задача расшифровать криптограмму зашифрованную методом подстановки*
*(шифр простой замены где каждая буква криптограммы заменена другой из того же алфавита)
Почувствуйте себя настоящим криптаналитиком и пользуясь логикой, чутьем, статистикой а иногда и подсказками - расшифруйте поучительные и веселые высказывания знаменитых людей!
Программа была испробована на 7 inch tablet. Пробуйте на смартфонах на свой сртах и риск!
Дается фраза - где все буквы перемешаны (то есть например вместо А теперь везде написано К).
Под каждой буквой - цифра которая соответствует частоте появления этой буквы в фразе.
Так же имеется график частот русского языка (то есть уже давно подсчитали как часто в среднем появляется каждая буква русского алфавита
в текстах). График частот может нам помочь т.к. например зная что буквы а и о обычно встречаются очень часто, можем придти к выводу что буквы с большой частотой в нашей фразе будут либо а либо о (хотя - не обязательно) ... так, пробуешь различные варианты пока додумаешься до фразы. Так же могут помочь знание темы и автора...
Лампочка (помощь)- раскрывает настоящую букву.
Птичка (проверка)- проверяет верность найденного решения.
Bедро (reset)- стирает все введенные нами буквы.
Поворот (change)- меняем фразу .....
Меню или game icon - График частот русского.

How to Play:
Use addition logic to solve which number corresponds with each of the ten letters. The cryptogram is complete when the three equations add up.
* No digit can be associated with two different letters
* No word will begin with a zero
Once solved use your solution to decode the phrase. Use the phrase to find the secret hidden word. This little thematic twist provides a satisfying ending every time.

TERMINAL is a strategic word-puzzle game in which players are tasked with cracking randomly encoded messages (cryptograms). Messages may contain inspirational quotes from great minds of the last century, or insights from pop culture icons.
The letters in the encoded messages are scrambled, such that all A's might be B's, all B's might be C's, etc.
The lines below show a hypothetical message and its encoded counterpart. The first line is the actual message, which is hidden from the player. The second line is the encoded message.
she sells sea shells by the sea
abc acdda ace abcdda fg hbc ace
By analyzing the encoded message, players can easily find patterns. For example, a player might choose to start with 3 letter words and deduce that "hbc" is the word "the". It would follow that the letter "c" in the word "acdda" is really the letter "e". The fact that the "c" is followed by two d's might lead the player to conclude that the "d" is really an "l". The word "acdda" also starts and ends with the same letter ("a"). Given this, the player might conclude that the "a" is an "s", and that the word is "sells".
Having come to the above conclusions, the word "abcdda" would spell "s_ells" (wherein only the second letter is missing). At that point, the player should choose the letter that makes the most sense - e.g. an "m" would spell "smells", a "w" would spell "swells", an "h" would spell "shells", etc.
Players can use the "Check" button to gauge how close they are to decoding the message. Doing so tells them how many letters they've gotten right, but does not tell them which letters those are. To help them along, players are also given a free letter of their choice per encoded message.
Decoded messages are added to players’ vaults, and can be revisited at any time.
All the teasers come with hints and solutions. While solving a teaser, take your time exploring various directions before looking at the answer.
REMEMBER - Once you look at the answer of a teaser, you loose the opportunity to solve it yourself. So try your best, spend time thinking, before actually looking at the solution. You can discuss with your friends as well. It will be a great brain exercise and of course, a fun activity.
* We're continuously adding more interesting stuff. Stay tuned!
