You will probably like this game if you like the IQ game.

zIQ is a game based on the popular IQ game. The main objective of the game is to jump pieces until there is only one left on the board. Any more left on the board will reduce your ranking.

The iIQ game is based on a very popular and well known game principle. It exists as board game as well as computer game. The game principle is very simple, you just jump pieces to remove others. But this easy principle actually leads to a quite intruiguing board game which requires a lot of thinking. Of course once you got the rules you will be able to solve the game.

The game is well implemented and is easy to play. The graphics is a bit simple but sufficient for such a game. The zIQ game follows the standard game principle and does not implement any additional options or highscores. This limits its abilities but because of the very good original game concept of the board game it still keeps you playing. Therefore, the game can be recommended.
