[edit] The Secret Device

  • Website direct link: http://www.thesecretdevice.com
  • The animated device consists of 10 'slots' that are unlockable as the lights across the bottom light up.
  • The rings can be rotated by clicking and dragging them in a circular motion until single numbers appear in the three 'windows' as a combination lock.
  • The device also includes a couple of strange themes that indicate potential puzzles: Chimes, and Runes.
