Hey Casual Gamers!  Math has never been my greatest subject.  Don’t get me wrong I had pretty good scores while schooling.  I just always feel the need to work and improve on the current skills possessed.  This type of motivation always moves me to math puzzlers, and with that, lets dive into this new casual app, Code Vault Cypher!



Gameplay

Matching the side and bottom numbers is the win condition!

Some starting guidance:  Make sure you pay attention to the tutorial!  Code Vault Cypher can either extremely fun, or highly frustrating based on how well you pay attention.

So the basis on the casual app is to switch the code panels in green to equal the number on the side and bottom.  In the example above, 9-6-0 = 3.  This would be good, but the number I’m looking to get is 9.  So swapping the panels to get both the side and bottom panels to match will ultimately move you on to the next stage.

There are some additional power ups that will help solve the cypher when stuck, but use them sparingly.

Graphics

A simple main menu makes all casual apps enjoyable!

To be clear, you aren’t looking at Code Vault Cypher for graphics.  That said, the menus are pretty polished.  Everything is easy to find, I just have a little issue with the puzzle’s location.  In the lower stages the Cypher is in the lower right corner of the phone leaving a ton of darkness where the puzzle isn’t.

Other than that, all artwork in this casual app sets the mood to help become the greatest code cracker online!

Music

Concentration is the mode of the music!

So the music isn’t too essential, but the sound effects can be.  There’s no harm in letting the app music play.  Some of the ques received come from the sounds so I can creating a new playlist while casually jumping to the next level.

Controls

There’s a real sense of accomplishment when it comes to completing a level!

Point and click controls rule this casual app.  Thankfully there’s nothing messy about the controls.  Even with the graphics issue of the cypher being a bit small, there’s still no feeling of aggravation from miscues.

Truthfully, there’s more worry about solving codes than controls.  Even the menus are to the point and hassle free!



The Power of in-app Purchases

Every completed stage gives Cypher Coins so you can buy more power-ups!

So there are a few ads , but they seem far and in-between.  I could see myself making a purchase on this app just because of what it offers game-play wise.  The best buy is by far the ultimate pack.  Not only are the ads removed, but your cypher coins from the end of each round are doubled.

It’s a pretty great deal if you plan on going any higher than level 20.  I can only imagine how crazy those puzzles look!

Buying power-ups require Cypher coins which can be won from the end of levels or watching an ad.  Line Cypher comes extremely handy as it will correct some of the cypher for the level.

There’s a bit of an education component to Code Cypher.  Terowe Systems LLC has also created a student version of Code Cypher. In this version, students can report their progress to an educator via email.  This can be a wonderful tool to enforce math skills and problem solving!

The Verdict

Overall, I can see this being a side puzzler when I need a break from other things in casual reality.  It’s not next level graphics but there’s a pretty decent puzzler in Code Vault Cypher.  I suppose time will tell if it will last a Keep or Delete.

Made it to a certain level and want to show off?  Drop a comment in the section below and lets get better at math together!

Happy Gaming, and as always, keep it casual!
