DescriptionIQ Game is a simple strategy game that aims to improve the player's IQ. It is played on a field filled with blocks of different colours in random patterns. The player and the computer-controlled opponent alternately pick a block with a certain colour, adjacent to its own position. When the player selects one, that block and all other blocks of the same colour, adjacent to any of the player's blocks, become taken.
The trick is into thinking forward and choosing blocks that will expand the reach as quickly as possible. However, the same colour can never be picked in succession (if the opponent chose it first for example), widening the strategical options. The computer's AI supports two algorithms: Pinky, a well-known greedy algorithm with 50% probability of error, and Brain, like Pinky but no errors in greedy, plus it tries to block player's best move. The player with the largest reach wins the game.
