# Tercessrebmun (Secret Numbers)

**4.3**/5 (43 votes)

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. Enter your answer in the space provided (by replacing the "CODE?" text) using positive integers only and no other symbols. Some are straightforward and some are definitely not, but all solutions can be derived using logic and ingenuity. Wikipedia may even help with a few of them.

This game is best played in small groups of people, like the one we had in the site's IRC channel over the weekend as we worked through most of the levels in the game. Tony even showed up to give us a few helpful hints as we played, so don't be afraid to ask for a hint or two in the comments! Or come visit our IRC channel for some real-time assistance!

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
