Hack This Game Hints Week 4

Here are the hints for this week (File 16 – File 19):

File 16 ———-

Imagine if your keyboard keys were in alphabetical order. Pretend that they are and try typing a message, if you were to type ABCDEF you would get QWERTY.

File 17———-

This to do list could look very different and still maintain the same code. In fact “Shower” and “Stores” could be any 6 letter word. “Lawn” and “Shop” could be any 4 letter word. “Movie” could be any 5 letter word. Think of any words that might relate to the buttons and count the letters.

File 18———-

If A = 1 and A = 27 then every 26 we add will also be A. A = 53 and A = 79…

Try long division, the remainder is key.

File 19———-

First, circle all the A, B, X and Y’s…now figure out their place in the code to determine the actual solution.


That’s it for this week, come back next week for the last set of hints!
