Every once in a while a truly unique and innovative game comes along, and Hundreds is one such game. “Designed for ages 2 to 222” as the developers describe it, Hundreds is a puzzler featuring elegant, minimalist graphics.

The goal is to grow at least 100 points between the circles in each one of the puzzles. As the circles grow, they turn red and become unstable, and guess what — if they collide, the game is over.

With a soothing soundtrack and more than 100 different and increasingly challenging puzzles, Hundreds is the kind of game you can pleasantly zone out playing.

Roaming Fortress

A little background: The Manatalopian Knights were removed from their lands after their fortresses fell to the Goblin Horde. After domesticating the wild Burdenbeasts, however, their hope for reclaiming their kingdom was restored, and they established a new, roaming fortress.

In this action, strategy and defensive game of siege and destruction you’ll test your ability to command your roaming fortress when confronted by new waves of enemies. Some fortresses are interchangeable, meaning you can trade them in and out as part of your strategy to retake the Kingdom of Manatalopia.

Enjoy nine levels, 15 squads and 14 enemies in the game, plus 12 more levels, 22 new squads, and 10 new enemy types in the expansion pack. Note that the game is not compatible with first-generation iPads.

About Love, Hate and the other ones

In this visually unique game, your goal is to help the two main characters, Love and Hate, return to the hill they love so much. Throughout the 70 levels, the pair encounter a number of other characters, and you’ll be interested to learn how these other ones respond to Love and Hate.

The game features four different worlds to explore, plus charming graphics, original music, sound effects and intuitive touch controls. Work your way from one side of the screen to the other in each level to solve the puzzle and advance to the next one.

The characters are very cute, the puzzles are challenging, and the overall uniqueness of the game will win you over.
