# Tercessrebmun (Secret Numbers)

Tonypa is back with a new puzzle game and this one will surely give your grey matter a work out. In the spirit of Web-based riddle games, Tercessrebmun (or Secret Numbers) is a Flash game in which you must figure out the password for each of the game's 30 levels. Each level presents a series of characters from which you must derive meaning and clues that point to a single numeric answer.

i got past levels one through six:

1:

pretty straightforward: 10

2:

again, pretty obvious: 2

3:

if you look at the first letter of each line, it spells out: 7

4:

just read it backwards, and it says "one less than a hundred" or: 99

5:

for this one, i just figured out how many tuesdays there were in each month and then multiplied that by the number of months in a year to get: 48

6:

a bit trickier, the first letter of each word spells out MMVIII, or, in roman numerals: 2008

i'm really stuck on level seven though

Stuck on level 9 atm.

**Hints:**

Level 1:

Straightforward addition

Level 2:

Straightforward instruction following

Level 3:

Look down.

Level 4:

Look back.

Level 5:

Combination of two tactics you already used.

Level 6:

What empire was Caesar part of?

Level 7:

"Bin" is a key word.

Level 8:

The meaning is important.

**Solutions:**

Level 1:

Add the numbers to get: 10

Level 2:

The level number is: 2

Level 3:

Read down the first letter of each line to get "seven": 7

Level 4:

Read backwards to get "one less than a hundred": 99

Level 5:

Read the first letter of each word backwards to get "eight times six": 48

Level 6:

Read the first letter of each word as Roman numerals to get MMVIII: 2008

Level 7:

"Bin" refers to "binary" numbers. Read o as 0 and I as 1 to get the binary number 1010011: 83

Level 8:

Count the number of spaces in the poem: 13

Oh, fool me... Of course they mean "actual level/total number of levels"

I thought they are kind of range because they are placed directly under "Hints and spoilers" - of course I thought it's kind of a hint...

Maybe that would be useful to make it clearer, Tony - if you're reading this.

I like the game a lot altho probably im not gonna get too far since im playing alone.

On Level 12: well, if you...

take the first symbol, dot or dash, of each of the nine words in Morse code, you get .-...-.--, which is Morse code for LAW, which is Dewey Decimal 340 in the library.

So the answer is 340, except that of course it isn't. I'd already thought of the Samuel Finley Breeze thing, but it wasn't obvious what to do with that...

ok for number 12 i feel really off...

i found a morse code translator and put in the whole thing and got

.. / ..-. .. -. -.. / .. -. / .-.. .. -... .-. .- .-. -.-- .-.-.- / .. .-.. .-.. ..- ... - .-. .- - . -.. .-.-.- / -... --- --- -.- ... .-.-.- / .-- --- .-. -- ... .-.-.- / . .- - .-.-.- / .--. .- --. . ... .-.-.- / -. ..- -- -... . .-. ... .-.-.- / ... --- ... .-.-.- / -.. ..- ... - .-.-.- / -.-. .... .- .. .-.

which i'm assuming is way off

also if the periods are the dots...then the spaces could be the dashes? even with that knowledge i'm completely stumped on how to turn that into something with the dewey dec. system

Bah help me

13 - still working on this one, but maybe this will help

each line has three sets of nine digits, none of which is repeated within each set

this gave me replacements for the missing numbers, (though not necessarily the order) but they didn't appear to work. after that, i am stuck.

possibly even less relevant

this would make the bottom "283" which is a prime number

On #22: I've got

The whole "Prime Number Thirty" thing.

It seems pretty apparent that it's not

anything to do with the prime number in the thirties, hence the singular thirty.

This leads me to believe that

it means the thirtIETH prime, which if my math is right is 101

, but that's not working either. Any insights?

17-30

Game Clue:

THE QUICK BROWN FOX JUMPS OVER THE LAZY DOG

14 27 4 11 5 0 1 18 14 4 6 15 6 21

Hints:

You'll have to count this one out.

Literally

Solution:

Count the 14th letter, then the 27th after that, then the 4th after that, etc.

FIRSTTHREEOFPI

314 is the first three numbers in PI, and the solution.

Seeing as 30 could be still trouble, here are some more hints:

You dont have to convert mice word to numbers, the hint in there was mICE, meaning slippery ground.

Now if the blind mouse would move in the maze, it would probably bump into walls.

All letters except X are counted as walls.

Move until there is dot in instructions, then read the last letter you hit.

Well with all the hints surrounding 30, I was finally able to finish the game. Thanks Tonypa for creating such an exhilarating mental coaster ride. Version 2 on its way? Maybe? If you can somehow manage to pull together the creative talents of the JIG community, then I can see nothing but a bigger, better, much more engaging experience that is Tercessrebmun 2. Or shall it be 2 Tercessrebmun? =)

#30: what am I missing?!

I'm failing at the very last step. I followed all hints given and get 4 letters (two of which are the same) and no fifth letter (or as I did: define the starting '.' as a valid result).

Concretely, I get as a result:

BEBU.

with that:

I tried all year-numbers (birth, death, disco hit) of the argentinian composer (to no avail) and there is also a romanian river by that name (which leaves me completely clueless)... There seems to be no anagram either...

To make the confusion perfect:

It seems to me, that there are a few obsolete moving instructions having the mouse bumping into the maze's "boundary-walls" just for fun. Or is the mouse supposed to do some "pacman-warping-thing" appearing at the opposite side of the maze?!

*sigh*, please kindly guide this lost soul out of its maze...

#30 to Tiri

My own mice have had big headache before I found the "exit".. euh.. the correct worde

Seems your mice have taken a wrong way..

your

first letter is correct.

your

second too

if

your mice bumped into wall, doesn't matter.go on with next instruction

the word to find is longer as yours

good Luck

oups! who is waiting "Season 2" of "secret numbers" :)

#31:

Ok so I figured out that "OVER" is a clue to

invert the characters in the second line (namely: ROT-13)

And the resulting characters appear to be yet another

anagram, since I can see the word "multiply" in there

But I can't make head or tail of the rest of it. As far as I can tell, there just aren't enough

vowels to complete the anagram

I don't know what to do with the word "GAME", so I suspect that has something to do with what I'm missing. Perhaps I'm completely on the wrong track?

Help?

#30: thank you all guys for the advice, I got it right now =)

DON'T move in maze like this:

Duh! What I did wrong is to execute every set of moving instruction from the starting 'dot' and I did fancy stuff like displacing the mouse of the 'dot'-field in order to start it going in order to move; obviously my 5th mouse was extremely dumb...(I guess, I still assumed there where 8 mice, of which for some strange reason only 5 got to move/escape/whatever with their own set of moving instruction)

bh:

I've posted Walkthroughs including step by step hints and solutionsa for levels 1 through 19 above. I'll be working on others as I can, but I'm moving this weekend, so I may not be able to post them for a few days.

BTW, Guys! I'm stuck on 27. I've converted the numbers to

TH-HN-EE-OM-SE-LI-OM

But I can't get a decent

anagram

Help?

Thanks for the game Tonypa, I enjoyed it, however it should come with a disclaimer that

if it were any more obscure it would be impossible to beat.

@master_flea

you got the codes right, too many letters though, just the first letter.

then if you still are stuck

the anagram is obscure, the answer is a code

Game Clue:

THE LONG ONE HEADING TO SKY

SMALL RISE OF SUN

NEZOD TIMES NEZOD WAITING

Hints:

It's time to think about directions

And faces, long and small

Or is that hands?

Hands, faces and directions?

Do you have time for this?

And waiting backwards?

Solution:

The first two lines refer to the hands of a clock and the directions they face at a given time

Long hand up. Small hand east. 3 o'clock.

The last line tells you to Wait a dozen times a dozen minutes from then, only backwards. So go back 144 minutes from 3 o'clock. 12:36, or 1236

22-30

Game Clue:

2532492502452993111311524025024231123105241

Hints:

Some numbers aren't what they seem

If a number isn't a number, then maybe it's just separating others.

Or even telling you how big the separation is?

Maybe this is like a previous question

What's the key here?

or perhaps keys... again.

Solution:

Most of the 2's and 3's are delimiters of ASCII identifiers. The Code is 53-49-50-45-99-111-115-40-50-42-112-105-41

The first letters are THEOSLO

But Norway (Oslo) isn't the right code.

But there is a country called Lesotho.

The country code of Lesotho is 266.

An 8x8 maze for the mice to run in?

So what's the second line then?

Up Down Left Right?

Don't forget the mice are blind

Solution:

Running the mice with each instruction until they hit a wall/letter, starting from the period, you get B E A S T

How do you represent Beast as a number?

Or perhaps the Number of the Beast? The answer is 666.

I would like to point out that I fixed some bugs in the game couple days ago and if you still see old version you should update the page (or clear the cache) so latest correct swf will load:

20: should say now FISHING instead of HEARING

29: 10-14 is correct hint

Thanks for everyone who played through it. I honestly did not expect it would be so difficult, it was suppose to be quick fun for hour or so.

Congrats on your new game tonypa!

I like how it is numeric/logic one side and poetry/proze at the other side. I came to level10, I probably play the rest with the walkthrough in my hand.

Wow, and I guess you exceeded the amount of comments on a game here on JIG ever, or at least in the shortest time-span.

Are those of you who are asking for help with specific levels aware that there is a walkthrough above *on this page* that gives some hints before giving away the answer for all 30 levels?

Find it here:

http://jayisgames.com/archives/2007/12/secret_numbers.php#walkthrough

In my opinion, Tonypa ALWAYS does great games. They're always unique, creative, and force you to think outside the box.

However, that has its downside: Sometimes, like with this game, a lot of levels are really obscure in figuring out the direction to go in.

For example, Level 19

You are presented with lines of words with NO indication towards any words. Alright, the letters don't seem to jumble up into any numbers. Alright, so what is going on? Apparently, you have to figure out the last line is a command. Then you have to figure out that said command means remove certain letters from the puzzle. Now, the last part of the puzzle seems more the style of this numbers game, but it is very obscure in reaching that point.

My point is I love games that are hard enough to desire

a walkthrough and you try your best to go without one, but obscurity that forces you into a guide only makes me feel dumb.

Nevertheless, Tonypa has delivered another great time waster.

Or is that hands?

Hands, faces and directions?

Do you have time for this?

And waiting backwards?

Solution:

The first two lines refer to the hands of a clock and the directions they face at a given time

Long hand up. Small hand east. 3 o'clock.

From everything?

Solution:

Take each letter in the clue back one.

TICKSTONEWDAY, or the Ticks until a new day(midnight).

Game Clue:

2532492502452993111311524025024231123105241

Hints:

Some numbers aren't what they seem

If a number isn't a number, then maybe it's just separating others.

Or even telling you how big the separation is?

Maybe this is like a previous question

What's the key here?

or perhaps keys... again.

Solution:

Most of the 2's and 3's are delimiters of ASCII identifiers. The Code is 53-49-50-45-99-111-115-40-50-42-112-105-41

512-cos(2*pi) = 512-1 = 511
