Zelda3 IQ test Revenge of the Einstein

Hack of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Description:

The final installment of the IQ series, The Revenge of the Einstein, includes some of the most difficult block puzzles ever created in a Zelda game. The already existing puzzles from the IQ and Conker, which were considered to be of a better design, were used in this game and remodeled to be even more difficult, yet some rare puzzles are brand new.

A very short hack with very difficult riddles, which will test the limits of your intellect, while still being beatable if you invest enough time into solving. The hack also has some “breathing rooms”, in which you don’t need to think much to proceed.

Misleading Title..

Reviewed By: lexluthermiester on 13 Feb 2017

The IQ series of Zelda 3 hacks have been interesting since they were started. The first was challenging, diverting and ultimately amusing.

This installment of the series is a step up in the level of challenge offered. However, the puzzles included simply do not offer enough to qualify as “Einsteinian”. The level of intellectual capacity needed to solve them does not require an individual to have anything close to the IQ level of Einstein or anyone else in that grouping of high IQ individuals.

Still, the challenges are considerable and fun to work through! While the title is misleading, the hack itself is still of high quality and compelling enough to qualify as recommended, and highly so.
