Z4HL3N R473N is the fifth game in programmer Der Luchs's eight game freely downloadable game series programmed between STERNENKRIEGER and its following release. As a musician, these games were programmed quickly with a simple, no frills mentality similar to that of a "jam session". Most games were designed with intuitive game mechanics and a lack of things such as stages, levels, upgrades, bosses, etc., and in this way were not as much of an investment of Der Luchs's time as a larger release game as STERNENKRIEGER or Irrelevant. The original intent was not to be released as a physical cartridge and it wasn't until an almost unanimous public outcry that Der Luchs decided to combine the eight games with VecFahren for the release of the N. D. W. 2014 Multicart.
Z4HL3N R473N is a code breaking game. The player is given ten seconds to make a guess at the code. Each code consists of four numbers from 1 to 9. If the player gets a part of the code correct, they will get a ping, one for each number which is correct. Four correct numbers automatically begins the next code of four numbers. The player is given twenty chances to guess the correct code. When there are no more guesses left, it will be game over.
