You don’t have to own a Rolls-Royce to download and play the automaker’s new interactive game, which it says was inspired by its new Wraith Kryptos Collection.

The game is “a cryptic challenge, consisting of four levels, each getting progressively harder,” the company said in its announcement.

The game is available, only for mobile devices, at the Rolls-Royce website.

Rolls-Royce unveiled its Wraith Kryptos Collection earlier this month. It includes only 50 vehicles, which themselves are “imbued with cryptography; cryptic messages and code embedded within the very fabric of the motor car.”

The automaker said the online game “has been devised to entertain and amuse Rolls-Royce enthusiasts who will not be lucky enough to attempt to solve and decipher the code of the Wraith Kryptos Collection for themselves. Inspired by, but not linked to, the Wraith Kryptos Collection, anyone with a penchant for cryptography may enter the challenge.

“Consisting of four different levels, players are initially invited to guide an orb through a maze by tilting their mobile device in the direction they wish to travel, in a time-pressured challenge. Next, a series of questions will reveal just how keen the cryptographer player really is.

“The third level will test the observation skills of the participant – only the most cunning will succeed! The final phase consists of cryptographic ciphers, designed to boggle and bewilder. This level is the reserve of the most agile and determined minds alone.”
