Top Critic Average
Overall, this puzzle game is certainly enjoyable. At times, it can feel too repetitious, and when that starts to hit, it's best to take a breather. Burn out on something like this can ruin the next experience, whether it be the next time you boot up this game, or another game like it. If you're looking for a different kind of puzzle experience than what you're used to, you could do worse than this game.
101 Ways to Die has its own unique charm and as with a majority of indies games they can either be a hit or a miss, luckily Four Door Lemon knew what they were doing when creating this addictive title.
101 Ways To Die does exactly what it says on the tin! It provides a multitude of ways for you to kill your experiment participants, with a wide range of tools and combos, each as humorous as the last! The unlock progression is well paced so you get a good play time from the game (though some curveball puzzles can grind your progress to a halt). Having said that, you wouldn't play a single sitting for too long anyway, with repetitive gameplay slowly making it a drag. However, being so sadistic and murderous is rarely such a comical delight, and a kickback-and-enjoy experience as can be found in 101 Ways To Die.
The game gets fun when you find your groove but at times you'll end up getting frustrated since it gets too difficult and I feel some gamers will get mad enough to not touch the game for a while.
This is a fun puzzle game with a difficulty pitched to keep it interesting for seasoned puzzlers but not beyond the reach of novice gamers. The traps you set and contraptions you create are challenging and comedic in a deliciously evil way that is sure to raise a wicked chuckle or two from all but the most pure of heart. An opportunity to use your creativity in dastardly ways; 101 Ways to Die's use of physics and Rube Goldberg-style chain reactions is an enjoyable entry into the puzzle genre.
101 Ways to Die is a perfect game for people with a little of monster in them. The main goal of the game is to eliminate Splats in as many creative ways as possible. 101 of them seems to be plenty enough, maybe even more ways than to kill a Sim.

With a lot of clever puzzles and a quirky, cartoon style. 101 Ways to Die is a great puzzle game that will keep you entertained for quite a while. As long as you can get it working that is.
Not quite as bad as falling into a pit of spikes, 101 Ways to Die is a serviceable physics-based puzzle game. Fun in short doses, it does enough right to warrant a quick look, but even though creating your own weird and wonderful traps is the title's main draw, the gameplay can outstay its welcome when the difficulty level begins to rise.
A death simulator which somehow makes killing annoying little Netto minions actually a frustration, rather than the joy it should be. While it can be fun at times, the awkwardness of setting up the levels, lack of atmosphere and character make it a rather underwhelming experience.
