    Hundreds is an evolved remake of an already released Flash puzzle game that goes by the same name. The Flash version, created by Greg Wohlwend, is much simpler — as players progress, the game tosses more and more bubbles onscreen at once. The iOS version, coming to iPad and iPhone, builds impressively on that simple foundation.
    According to developer Semi Secret Software, whose past games include Canabalt, Wurdle, and Aquaria, the iOS version of Hundreds will add "something akin to a narrative layer." The IndieCade demo occasionally presented screens with text like "A mouse has one snout but a human has ten" and at least one with gibberish, with letters that twitched and swapped.

The band's 10-minute performance featured a wide variety of classic gaming songs (complete with sound effects), including selections from Pokemon, Super Mario Bros., Tetris, The Legend of Zelda, Halo, and more. While the band's brassy versions of these nostalgic themes were spot-on, the accompanying choreography was incredibly complex and quite mesmerizing.
