Hi, guys! I made a game called Cipher World. Thought maybe somebody could find it interesting here.

Cipher World is a game where your goal is to solve ciphers.
There are 100 unique cryptograms to solve (and more wll be probably added in the future). The ciphers range in difficulty - from simple lists of words to decrypt, to full-blown encrypted texts. By solving ciphers you earn coins - points that can be spent on hints to help you if you're stuck on a cipher (for example, to open a symbol or to check what letters in the current solution are correct).

The game is free and is available on Google play:

Hi Zolo,

I really like your game, thank you very much for sharing!
I've worked until 2009 as a game developer (PC, NDS, Nintendo Wii, PS3) for several german game development studios and so I think I can see if a game is made good or not: Yours is definitely good! I like the animations of the letters and the plain and clear design. Also the texts are choosen very well.
There is only one thing what is a bit confusing: In the overview of a level you can not see what stages are already solved. You have to click them to see if they are solved or not. It would be great to have a litte check mark on each button.

Hi, Largo! Thank you for the kind words!

And thanks for the feedback. About "solved" indicators - there are checkmarks on the ciphers that are solved. You can see it on the screenshots on Google Play. The problem occurs only on some devices, I think. I found other bugs, too, so I'll try to fix everything ASAP. Unfortunately, no matter how hard you try, some bugs wait until release to be discovered :D
Thanks again for the feedback, I really appreciate it. And I hope you will continue enjoying the game :)

Hi, guys! I'm here with a new update for Zodiac Crypt.

You can now specify opened letters for a cipher you create. These letters will be visible in the cipher on the CipherBoard.
There are also some other improvements including better optimization and a couple of cosmetic changes.

As before, the app is available on Google Play:

... And another update, small but important. You can now resize the cipher when solving it.

A kind man pointed out that there were some mistakes in the Zodiac-340 cipher in Zodiac Crypt. And indeed, some symbol were mixed up.

This error happened partly due to my own negligence and partly because I used an image printed in a newspaper (http://zodiackillerciphers.com/wiki/images/0/03/Sfchron340cipher.png), where some symbols are not clear. So when I looked at a high-res image of the cipher (http://zodiackillerciphers.com/wiki/index.php?title=File:340-cipher-hi-resolution.jpg), mistakes became apparent.

Anyway, I apologize for these mistakes. The app is fixed and updated now:

Thanks for the update! I'm glad we have the high-resolution cipher image. It has helped clear up these issues with the symbols.
