1. Hundreds

Hundreds is one of the most interesting games to come out of this week's batch of iOS apps. This puzzle game, partially created by the maker of the successful Canabalt, is challenging and addictive. Hundreds' object is to touch the circles on the screen until their internal counters add up to 100. That simple concept quickly becomes tricky when you learn that your circles can't touch each other or anything else while they're ticking upward. Once you're confronted with puzzles filled with bouncing bubbles all over the screen, Hundreds difficulty quickly becomes apparent. This quirky puzzle game comes in a sleek package with beautiful typography that makes it even more enjoyable to play. It's available now for iOS [iTunes link], and is currently on sale for $2.99.
