Pros: Time killer, free, slightly challenging, slightly addictive

Cons: Does not change, gets boring after a while

3 out of 5 stars

Imbecile Test is a game that can be found on the iTunes app store. It is a tongue-in-cheek game full of puzzles and trick questions to test if you are an “imbecile” or a “genius”. This game is not the best in the world, but it is OK.

The Imbecile Test is a good game for killing time or when you are really bored and need something to occupy your mind until something better happens. It’s free on the iTunes App store so you have nothing to lose in getting this game.

When you first start playing, it is slightly challenging. You are timed so you need to solve puzzles and trick questions in order to get the best time. Even easy questions can become complicated because of the timer. When you play this game for a while, you will want to continue playing over and over to get a better time.

However, after a few tries, the novelty of the game wears off. It is addictive but it is an addiction that can easily be broken. Once you have played this game multiple times, sooner or later it will just get boring. The game never changes. It asks the same questions every time so it soon becomes a game about how fast you can move your fingers rather than how fast you can solve the puzzle. Overall the original challenge of the game begins to wear off and it leaves you saying, “Is that it?”

All in all, the game is a good game, especially for students who have a lot of time on their hands. That is why this game gets 3 out of 5 stars.
