The Codex Puzzle
Throughout this cosmic selfie comic app, you will encounter a series of coded messages. These codex puzzles are from helpful friends or to access a vehicle or to gain access to an entrance. Maybe a garden gate on Meta-4 leading to another dimension-who knows. The Codex Puzzle Decoder dial is based on the classic cipher invented by Julius Caesar himself. Its the simplest method of encryption techniques but can be surprisingly difficult to crack. In fact the opposing army during the Roman Empire took 450 years to understand how it worked. The concept is simple. Each letter of the text is given a number and is offset a fixed number of positions down the alphabet. The solution is always simple when you know the answer!
To unravel the Codex Puzzle message you must first locate the hidden number in the preceding pages of the story. The key code may be a number or a word. Look carefully, if you can't find it you will not be able to crack the code and proceed with the following story.
You must turn the Codex inner ring that the key number moves clockwise and 'LOCK' the two dials together. Turn the large outer ring so a letter in the upper coded window is visible in the small loop window. Then press the 'ACCEPT' button, the decoded letter will appear in the lower window if you have found the correct key number [some of the key codes maybe 'red-herrings']. If you require help along the way press the 'GUIDE' button for instructions.
Good Luck Young Selfinaut!
