The detective has received a mysterious letter which contains a message written in secret symbols. Can you help him to decode and reveal the original text? In this game you will be given a string of strange codes, while the 26 alphabets are listed at the bottom of the screen. You need to click and drag the letters to replace the codes so as to reconstruct the hidden words. The letters used will be removed from the alphabet list, but you may drag any of the letters back to the list if you would like to make another guess. You may also click the Hint button to reveal a letter if necessary. When you have completed the message, click the Submit button on the right to check your answer. Quickly solve the riddle and find the answer with the fewest hints.

This game offers a twist on the classic hangman game by asking players to crack the secret code by placing letters in the correct places to guess the words. Players have to figure out where they think letters might belong, and then try to figure out full words once some of the letters have been placed correctly.
This game relies on a player's expressive language skills and ability to figure out the whole from the part. Players with strong language skills will enjoy trying to crack this code.
