GAME FOR TWO PLAYERS
Is your friend sitting next to you bored? Spend a fun time together playing Quixo.
Play online multiplayer game Quixo with your friends and colleagues! Now it's easy with Google Play Game Services! You just need to choose an opponent from your Google+ circles and send an invitation! Or find random opponent in the network.
Acumen, a free app on the Amazon Appstore, is very similar to Mastermind Royale.
Another take on the classic Bulls and Cows paper and pencil games. In this case, you're guessing a code that has both a color and a shape, but you're guessing the colors and shapes separately.
Once a color/shape combination is used in the game, it cannot be used again. The app is set up to run for eight rounds, and your score is the total number of guesses you needed for all eight. High scores are tracked, as well as your speed in going through all eight rounds.
