SL-CRYPTO (C) 1989 By Steve Leisy -- SL-EASY Software
To start the game just type CRYPTO and press ENTER. You will be given a
chance to read the instructions at this point. I would suggest that until
you play a few times that you use Skill Level 1. Here is a definition of
the three skill levels:
Level 1: EASIEST -- This Level Cryptogram will use on Letters.
Level 2: TOUGH -- A combination of Letters and Symbols
Level 3: ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE -- Uses only Symbols
After selecting the skill level you will be shown the Cryptogram.
You may then request a hint or as many hints as you want.
Each hint, however, will cost you 5 points and there is no guarantee that
the hint will even help. The Hints are selected at random and you may be
given the same one more than once or you may even be given a letter that
is not contained in the cryptogram. Each Cryptogram is worth a possible
When you are done taking hints it will ask you if you want a printout.
This is recommended if you have a printer. If you have a Daisy Wheel or
a printer that cannot print the IBM Extended graphics characters you
should stay with the LEVEL 1 or you will not get a printout.
The printout will show the Cryptogram and your list of hints and the
amount of points that it is worth, if you can decipher the cryptogram..
Good luck and Have fun!
