MindFudge
=========

MindFudge is a simple MasterMind clone.

It is being coded in Python 2.6.4 and pygame 1.9.1.
It might work in other Python 2.x and pygame versions but they
are not supported in this early development stage.

Game:
-----
    At the start of every game, the computer makes up a code and hides
it at the topmost row. The code is comprised of 4 colored pegs. Each of
the pegs can be one of six colors. Also, more than one can be of the
same color.
    Your goal is to crack the code.
    At each turn, you fill the first row's 4 cells with the colored peg
of your choice. You submit your guess to be checked and end your turn.
    For every guess you make, the computer will give you an indication
    of how well you did by placing key pegs on the right side of the
    board:
 - Every black key peg means that one of your pegs matches the secret
   code both in color and position.
 - Every white key peg means that one of your pegs matches the code in
   color but is in the wrong position.
    You have 12 guesses in which to find the secret code.
