Welcome to Hundreds, a new iOS game by Semi Secret Software.
How does it work? You see that "76" hidden behind a grey sphere? If that number reaches 100, the level is complete. To make this number grow, the player must tap and hold the grey spheres. In this particular stage, the like colored spheres must be touched in unison. Holding a finger on a sphere makes the number climb and also increases the size of the sphere. If any of the spheres collide with one another, the game is over. If a sphere touches a spinning saw blade of doom, its number is reduced to 0. For this stage, dividing the number evenly across all four spheres is a great strategy. In other stages, victory may come from one or two giant spheres. Seems simple, right?
Wrong. This is a game designed to test your patience and timing. Recklessness and greed only bring fried nerves and numerous level restarts. In a way, Hundreds reminds me of games like Super Meat Boy and N+, where every action must be executed flawlessly. It's stressful, difficult, but above all, lots of fun. A great sense of satisfaction is gained after a difficult stage is finally beaten.
Hundreds is currently $2.99 and can be played on either iOS or iPad.

Android! **BRAAAHHHH**!!! This looks awesome! !!
The more Android apps we buy, the more quality games we'll see in the Play store. I buy pretty much everything worth checking out just in the hopes of someday seeing more support for Android devices.
I bought Hundreds just a little bit ago when Reiner was tweeting about it. Incredibly frustrating but also incredibly satisfying. I'm stuck on level 47 right now. Glad I tried it out!
That looks really fun. I might check it out if I get some money in my Itunes at some point.
Looks really intresting, I'll have to check it out sometime. Thanks for this Reiner, otherwise I might have not noticed it.
I'm noticing a gradual increase of innovation in the mobile space. I'm liking it!
Looks fun. I'll add this to my growing list of iOS games I should get.
Sometimes I regret purchasing an android. No good available games.
Interesting..I'm checking it now.
