Meet Hundreds, your next mobile obsession

Postby a3HeadedMonkey » 08 Jan 2013, 15:04

Looks like more, dull, hipster shenanigans to me. I guess it's some monotonous bol­locks to keep all you moustachioed, cardigan wearing, iPhone users busy inbetween "games" of Curiosity & masturbating to 70's porn.

Meet Hundreds, your next mobile obsession

Postby beastie » 08 Jan 2013, 15:06

Is it just me, or do these phone games that just involved tapping make 'gamers' look like a bunch of mindless robots?


and I see the reward system in them that all games have. just that is all there seems to be, tapping and a reward system, a game minus the gameplay.
Either 'tap as many times as you can', or 'get readyyyy, tap now!'. What the hell is that?

Do people play these games as they feel they are a fun experience?, or is it just a way to avoid making eye contact on the train?

Like Charlie Brooker's take on the gameshow Total Wipeout, which is 'Herpp he done fell in the water' well, that's how I feel about the people who play these games for fun 'Herp I just done press a button'
I don't know if you can call these games, or tests for children to see whether that car accident caused lasting damage.

Maybe I am in the wrong and they are just games boiled down to their purest form? either way I'm not curious.

I don't wear cardigans. Mustache, static, bad news.

It isn't a game if nothing gets killed in it.

You poor people are very bitter indeed. You could have saved up a little more and bought a functional phone, rather than taking your buyers remorse out on everyone at every opportunity. The fact that you bought a cheap copy of an iPhone that constantly lags, crashes and won't hold a charge It's nobody's fault but your own.

From what I've seen, all Android users are like this. So belligerent and quick to preach... All of them, everywhere. Online and off. Although I guess I'd be p**sed off too if I had to use Android.

I'm sure I played something like this many years ago.

I'd take umbrage with this comment if I cared what an iOS user thought (or was told to think by Apple) - see, we can all play that game :wink:

+1 I don't wear a cardigan and I tap on Curiosity between playing the likes of Bastion, Broken Sword, GTA Vice City, Minecraft, The Walking Dead etc on my iPhone...
