I like the name Enigma but if it has to change, it has to change. I put
"Enigma" into the search engine at thesaurus.com and here are my favourites
of the possible synonyms, in no particular order.  Those marked with a * are
already used for games (found by checking the first page returned by typing
the name followed by "game" into google).

perplexity* (see below)
teaser* (lots of "teaser" games meaning demo versions)
brain twister*

My favourite is "Perplexity". It is already used for a board game but I
don't think that would be a problem. Quandary, for example, is both a board
game and unrelated computer games. Otherwise "Inscrutable", or some play on
that word, might be a nice name.
