Mastermind Mastermind User Interface

Inspiration

It is based on a famous game called "Mastermind" where players are required to guess a secret code, which is consisted of 8 different or equal colored balls, by having at most 10 attempts either a time limit of 5 minutes. Whenever a colored ball gets selected and is in the secret code right position, a black small colored ball on the right hand side of the current attempt comes up, though when only the color is right, a white colored ball is shown instead.
