Hundreds is a game of two halves. On the one side it's a uniquely stylish experiment, fuelled by cryptic cyphers and designed to entice you into its almost entirely monochromatic world.
Flashes of red tell you when you've gone wrong, with cheeky rhymes hammering home your failure.
The other half of the game, which you might call the game itself, is far less successful. Simple mechanics and surprisingly uninteresting level design make for an experience that's never exciting enough to get your blood really pumping.
It's a shame, because there's so much here that you'll want to like, but the one-note gameplay never fosters any of the feelings of anger or frustration that lead to addiction.
There's an interesting idea here, but Hundreds just isn't inspiring enough for you to want to stick around to find it
