After hanging around this site for a little while I finally decided to put together a cipher for my first puzzle. I hope you guys enjoy it.

721036710273114701098011166107721028210373114691156812168987211178111

Don't let the length of the code intimidate you, it expanded exponentially as it was encoded. Your result should be a 4 character code of a letter and 3 numbers.

Answer is:

K573

Solution method:

The numbers are ascii codes without spaces:
72 103 67 102 73 114 70 109 80 111 66 107 72 102 82 103 73 114 69 115 68 121 68 98 72 111 78 111
Converting them gives you
HgCfIrFmPoBkHfRgIrEsDyDbHoNo
These look like elements, with atomic numbers
80 98 77 100 84 97 72 111 77 99 66 105 67 102
Ascii again, to
PbMdTaHoMcBiCf
Elements again, to
82 101 73 67 115 83 98
Ascii again, to
ReICsSb
Elements again, to
75 53 55 51
Ascii again, to
K573

I have no idea what that result means though.

  • $\begingroup$ That's it! The puzzle was initially made for a couple friends of mine who are rhythm game players, and 573 is known as the "Konami Number." I realize I probably could have modified the puzzle to be something less obscure. $\endgroup$ – Michael Moschella Jun 21 at 14:31
