Some other reviews here treat the Hard Puzzle series with a tone of mysticism. I agree that the game is interesting and seeps out a profound sense of horror. However, this is ruined by the fact that the game's solution is dumb, unclued, guess-the-verb (despite being a standard verb), and not interesting at all.

Just as a heads up, the Second Hard Puzzle specifically was designed so Glulx Strings won't help you, and it also has a dumb unclued answer.
The Third Game benefits slightly from decompiling, and fits in well with the first two's type of solution.
The Fourth Game includes an in-game version of decompiling as a joke about how people had to decompile the other games, and its solution is a ton of little puzzles instead of one small one.
