Even if you manage to beat several levels, the most you can hope for is an ominous, jumbled message from the developers. When the message is finally un-jumbled, it's an equally infuriating riddle or Zen-like saying. But Hundreds isn't bringing you Zen--it's bringing you misery.
Hundreds is one of those games that is exceptionally hard to review because it's a Rorschach test for the user. Do you enjoy exceptionally challenging games that don't hold your hand, give you little pay off, and are so artistically barren that "unremarkable" would be an artistic upgrade? Then Hundreds might be your black-turtleneck-wearing, "this-is-the-time-on-Sprockets-where-we-dance-esque" masochistic game of the year. But for the majority of users, you'll find the frustration offset by little reward, the gameplay difficult but never approaching fun, and the entire experience more of a chore than a form of entertainment.
