What would be the logical sequel to One Hundred Ways? One Hundred and One Ways just seems like too small an increment. So, instead, Two Hundred Ways has arrived on Xbox consoles to offer double the amount of brain teasing and ball trapping. And it can be downloaded today for Xbox!
In Two Hundred Ways you simply have to get the ball to the goal. If only it was actually that easy. The path to the goal is rarely a straight line, and even if it is there will be any number of the more than 40 tools in the way to help. Or most likely hinder.
Much like the predecessor One Hundred Ways, Two Hundred Ways features the same gameplay that old-school fans loved in the likes of Kula World and Marble Madness. Hopefully the haphazard physics and poor English translation have been fixed in the sequel.
Two Hundred Ways builds upon its predecessor in almost every department. More levels, more obstacles and even more balls:
• 200 levels that will keep players busy for a long time
• 40+ tools that make it easier to guide each ball – or more difficult…
• Up to three balls per level
• Up to three layers per level
• Real-time 3D isometric view
• Players can zoom in/out of levels and rotate them for better strategizing
• Gradually increasing difficulty
• Tutorial level for each tool
• Two level themes, each with its own soundtrack
• Game languages: English and German
Two Hundred Ways introduces additional vertical layers, better camera controls and improvements across the board. Will the extra hundred levels make for a better game though? Our review will have all the details coming soon.
Available to download now, Two Hundred Ways on the Xbox Store comes priced at £12.49. If you missed the original One Hundred Ways, there is a Bundle Pack available for £16.74 that includes both games. That’s over Three Hundred Ways as the original contains several levels unique to Xbox. And anyone that knows anything about copyright law should definitely trademark Three Hundred Ways for when the inevitable sequel comes out.
Two Hundred Ways, the sequel of the successful brain teaser One Hundred Ways, gives puzzle fans twice as many mental challenges to overcome. The mission of each of its 200 levels sounds easy: guide one or more balls to the exit. But levels with up to three different layers and numerous ball traps don’t make this task a walk in the park. Luckily, players can use dozens of tools to help them reach their goal – but using more tools means that their level score will go down…
