Final Fantasy XIII-2 contains an interesting mini-game where you have to find a sequence of numbers around the circle.

Nathaniel Johnston does a nice write up of the game:

“The way the game works is as follows:

- The user may start by picking any of the N positions on the circle. Call the number in this position M.
- You now have the option of picking either the number M positions clockwise from your last choice, or M positions counter-clockwise from your last choice. Update the value of M to be the number in the new position that you chose.
- Repeat step 2 until you have performed it N-1 times.

You win the game if you choose each of the N positions exactly once, and you lose the game otherwise (if you are forced to choose the same position twice, or equivalently if there is a position that you have not chosen after performing step 2 a total of N-1 times). During the game, N ranges from 5 to 13, though N could theoretically be as large as we like.”

I created a brute-force solver in JavaScript to solve the clock puzzle problem for those who need a helping hand on the problem.

On the timed puzzles, the best thing to do is take a picture of the game, pause the game (which will distort the screen), and find the solution.

Thank you so much that last 13 number clock was doing my head in.

YOU ARE LEGEND!!!!!!
