The Language and Logic Game
CODE WORD is a code cracking word game that tests your vocabulary and reasoning. Like Mastermind with words or a crossword without clues, this challenging and addictive word game will keep you perplexed and entertained for hours.
Your mission is to deduce the secret code word that might just save the planet! The rules of the game are simple: Guess a word. After each guess, you’ll be given a clue — the number of letters your guess has in common with the secret code word. How few guesses will you need to uncover the CODE WORD?
If you like word games, logic games or colorful buttons, this is the app for you! Comments, bug reports and feature requests are, as always, greatly appreciated.

How to play CODE WORD:
The code word is always an actual English word, and your guess must be as well.
After each guess, the colored pegs on the right show the number of letters your guess has in common with the secret code word. In this example, the code word is TEARS.
For this example, D G I N O P are all eliminated, and A E R T must be in the code word. Swipe left or right to reset the letter board and start again.
Watch out for anagrams! Just because you’ve figured out all the letters in the code word doesn’t mean they’re in the correct order.
If you’re really stumped, ask for a hint. Each hint reveals another letter of the secret code word, but it will cost you a few guesses.
