Play The Number is a FREE, entertaining, Android logic game where you have 9 tries to guess a 4-digit number the app generates. It may sound easy, but in reality it is fairly challenging, yet very doable.

Basically, the game will give you 9 tries to guess a 4-digit number where each digit ranges from 1-9 but no digit may repeat twice. The digit Zero (0) does not play.

For each "guess" you make, the app will tell you number of 'hits' and number of 'bullseyes'.

A hit is a correct digit you guessed but not in the right spot.
A bullseye is a correct digit in the correct spot.

Example: Consider the screen shots below. 4 guesses were entered by the player and below each guess the app told the player how many hits and how many bullseye's he/she got for each guess:

(the player decided to hit 'Give Up :(' in mid-game (before all 9 guesses were used) and see what the number actually was. The screen shot below shows the game board after 'Give Up :(' was used with the app's number now showing:

Play The Number
Guess #1: 7391 - the app marked this guess as 1 hit (H1) and 1 bullseye (B1). The one bullseye is the 7 since the 7 is contained in the app's number AND it is in the right spot (spot 1). The 1 hit came from the 3 since it is contained in the app's number but it is not in the right spot (the player placed the 3 in the 2nd spot but the app had the 3 in the last spot)

Guess #2: 8756 - the app marked this guess as 3 hits (H3) and 0 bullseye (B0) since the 8, 7 & 6 from the player's guess are contained in the app's number but they were not placed in exactly the right spot as the app's number. There were no bullseyes in this guess since no digit in the player's guess is both contained in the app's number AND in the right spot

Guess #3: 9412 - the app marked no hits and no bullseyes (H0 / B0). Now that looks on the surface to be a very poor guess but in reality it is a GREAT guess since now the player knows 4 digits that for sure are NOT in the app's number. That reduces the pool of digts to form guesses from to 5 from 9. This makes things a lot easier...

Guess #4: 8712 - the app marked this guess as 2 hits (H2) and 0 bullseye (B0) since the 8 & 7 from the player's guess are contained in the app's number but they were not placed in exactly the right spot as the app's number. There were no bullseyes in this guess since no digit in the guess is both contained in the app's number AND in the right spot

In order to win , get 4 bullseyes within 9 or less guesses as shown in the screen shot below:
