Bored people are dangerous. From apps about flatulence, light sabers, and doing the drunk walk now comes the The Safe, or as it is officially titled The Safe — Can you Crack The Safe?. The Safe is a simple app that keeps you posted in your chair for hours trying to crack open a virtual safe.
The Safe doesn't offer any clues just a good ol’ fashioned turn dial and a ticker. Time is of the essence and if you screw up too many times the police are on you. Seriously, when you run out of time The Safe has a full video screen of you being handcuffed and tossed in the back of squad car complete with authentic siren sounds and a stoic police voice. The Safe will either intrigue you or frustrate you because you can’t get it unlock.
How do you do it? Turn the dial ? Listen to the clicks? Do you try out different patterns? Should you go left or right? Does it work like a traditional lock? These are questions that you puzzle masters will have to figure out for yourself.
If you’ve already played The Safe, then you know there are 10 spots to enter numbers on the dial. There is a lever that you may use to try to open the safe once you think you’ve figured out the combination. But remember if you open incorrectly the sirens will come on and to the clink you go.
The Safe is simple looking with a clean coal black and steel grey interface. The sounds are crisp and clear. For the amount of challenge the app provides it doesn’t feel overpriced. But then again you must be interested in the challenge to get that far. Hopefully, there is an amazing surprise inside the safe once you’ve figured it out. I'm not interested enough to find out.
