We are happy to see that 100 Trials is starting to get some attention with the gaming press.
Touch Arcade, Pocket Gamer, GameZebo, AppSpy and CapsuleComputers have all produced reviews of one type or another in the last few days.
We didn’t anticipate how much reviewers were hoping for a sequel to our well regarded 100 Rogues game. Notwithstanding that fact, they seem to be finding 100 Trials to be fun, engaging, and challenging. Pocket Gamer’s review, by Mike Rose, gives 100 Trials a rating of 9 out of 10, and uses phrases like “pure joy”, “hugely rewarded”, and “extremely satisfying”. Mike’s closing sentence goes right over the top, saying that with this new game that we “in fact managed to improve on their original masterpiece (100 Rogues)”. Sweet! Here’s a link to their review.
Nadia Oxford reviewed the game for GameZebo and gave 100 Trials four stars. She says that “as 100 Trials demonstrates, puzzle-heavy dungeon-crawlers will never go out of style”. Here’s Nadia’s review.
Over at AppSpy, Andrew Nesvadba gave 100 Trials 4 out of 5 stars. He didn’t find the game as fresh as 100 Rogues, but found that “it packs a punch thanks to its many bite-sized puzzles”. He also felt that the user interface was “elegantly simple” which we were pleased to see him comment on. Here’s his review. Another terrific thing about Andrew’s review is that there is a video version of it, with him playing the game. View it below.
Capsule Computers review
