Description:

Giving Qt/Cpp a try - inevitable for a KDE addict - led to ColorCode, a free advanced MasterMind clone

* lots of game variants, from the very easy up to really challenging ones, achieved by combinations
of any color count from 2-10 with any column count from 2-5 (you can also select one of the 5 level presets)
* 2 different game modes (Human vs. Computer/Computer vs. Human)
* allow or not pegs of the same color, display letter or number indicators or change the colors while playing
* automatically close the rows after the last peg is set to hurry up playing
* hide the menubar, toolbar, statusbar and/or the Timer and scale the game window to your needs
* English, German, Czech, French, Hungarian and Spanish translations available
* now it has a rather intelligent ;-) built in MasterMind solver - so you can let the computer guess for you
(nope, he's not cheating - really)

And, on the edge of losing you may always restart the same game avoiding the scandal :-D

How do I get bigger icons for the toolbar and the menu? 16x16 is far too tiny for me. I'm on Debian Linux/KDE4.

Please move tarball extension, from tgz to tar.gz.
Because tgz is the standard Slackware 12.2 package extension.

Ok, no problem - done.
Although I've always used that .tgz extension, because i'm pretty lazy about writing ;-)
