Hundreds is a gaming cocktail that mixes originality, mesmerizing gameplay and well-crafted minimalist artwork.
Indeed, the goal in Hundreds is quite simple: you must tap and hold over the flying circles in each level to make them pumping up until the sum of them is 100 points. However, while being swollen, circles turn red and they cannot touch any other circle or item on the level, otherwise the game is over. It's easy to understand but insanely difficult to master.
In addition, puzzles' complexity increases gradually by adding new rules and handicaps. Its over 100 levels guarantee hours of fun, including some stressing stuck-moments that will require the best of you. After each level you can check your stats and time records. You can always come back to beat them. It lacks though of some sort of global ranking to show off your personal bests.
You better have a multi-touch support device since that's what makes the difference in this game: you can grow different circles at a time, just use more fingers. Screentouch response is excellent.
Hundreds isn't just minimalist regarding graphics: the entire UI has been simplified to drive you directly to the puzzles. You won't lose your away among settings.
Despite it would be good for hesitant having a demo/lite version, Hundreds is a must-have puzzle which is totally worth its price.
